The BBE MaxCom is an easy-to-use dual channel compressor/limiter/gate and Sonic Maximizer that provides live or pre-recorded material with clean, distortion free compression. Whether the goal is to control vocals, a stereo mix or just dial in hard limiting to protect your speakers, the BBE MaxCom will accomplish your needs with the reliability and sonic excellence.

A pro audio first! BBE's best High Definition Sound technology, direct from the 882i and 482i Sonic Maximizer processors, is now built into the BBE MaxCom top quality compressor/limiter. All the features you'd expect in a true professional-grade compressor/limiter, plus the stunning improvement in total audio fidelity that only a genuine BBE Sonic Maximizer can bring to the mix! Sound Engineers, Recording Studios and music gigging musicians everywhere, rejoice! MaxCom is the compressor/limiter you've been waiting for!

The BBE MaxCom is a highly sophisticated Dual-Channel Compressor and Limiter with Gate, housed in a compact and easy-to-use package. It provides a live or recorded mix with all the clean, clear punch that only a truly professional dynamics controller can. However, the MaxCom is much more than a high-quality, superbly engineered compressor/limiter.

The BBE MaxCom is the first signal processor of its kind to feature an on-board BBE Sonic Maximizer. The BBE High Definition Sound process employed by the Sonic Maximizer is world renown among music and sound professionals for remarkable improvements in total audio fidelity, bringing crystalline clarity and air to the source material as well as revealing rich harmonic subtleties. The BBE MaxCom employs BBE's latest High Definition Sound technology, in the very same 4th Generation BBE Professional chipset which powers the 482i and 882i Sonic Maximizers.

The "over-engineering" in the BBE MaxCom ensures that both its compression and gating provide versatility and excellent sonic performance in situations where other compressor/gates often produce undesirable processing artifacts. At the heart of the MaxCom is a THAT Corporation VCA known throughout the industry as the premier dynamics processing VCA.

This single-rack-space dynamics processor has two independent full-featured compressor/limiters, each channel having independent controls for Threshold, Compression Ratio, Attack Time and Release Time. Additionally, the MaxCom's "linking" function allows for phase-coherent tracking of stereo signals and adjustment from the Channel One controls. Comprehensive metering is achieved via dual bar-graph meters on each channel that indicate Input Level and Gain Reduction.

BBE MaxCom intuitive design makes it easy to operate, and its rigorous engineering and robust construction assure clean, distortion free audio and a predictable, repeatable range of control from undetectable to clearly identifiable. Whether the goal is to pull a "lost" instrument up in the mix, control vocal levels or dial in hard-limited speaker protection, the MaxCom can accomplish the task with ease, reliability and sonic excellence. By offering a superb, full-featured compressor/limiter with an integrated BBE Sonic Maximizer system, the MaxCom has no equal at any price.
