TK Audio BC501

TK Audio's newest 500 series module, BC501 stereo bus compressor. Featuring all the power of TK’s flagship BC1-S

The new BC-501 adds even more functions taken from the BC2-ME mastering compressor, such as additional ratio settings (1.25:1, 6:1), a THD switch that adds more even harmonics to the signal, and three HPF settings from which to choose (80Hz, 150Hz, 220Hz).

All controls are detented for easy, precise recall. A dedicated Wet/Dry knob allows blending between the original and compressed signals, and an external sidechain input (accessible via stereo 1/8" mini TRS jack) is also provided.

All products are individually hand built and tested in Sweden.
