BBE’s Sonic Maximizer technology is one of the few “must have” tools in recording studios worldwide, and now it’s available in the popular 500-type module. The single-channel SM500 is engineered to brighten, clarify and add fullness by adjusting phase relationships and augmenting high and low frequencies, revealing more of the sound’s natural texture and detail.

Features include:

•    Same processing engine as the award-winning BBE 882i rack-mount model
•    Bypass switch for comparison of processed to unprocessed signals
•    +23dBu headroom
•    Compatible with 500-type racks which supply power and I/O

The Sonic Maximizer process has enhanced recordings for engineers and producers from Ryan Hewitt (Avett Brothers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Flogging Molly) to Ed Cherney (Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt) to Tony Visconti (T. Rex, David Bowie, Alejandro Escovedo). Now, studios with 500-type racks can Maximize their results as well.

MSRP is $499.99.
