SAMSON MCD2 Pro – Stereo Passive PC Direct Box
To The Max.
Samson‘s MCD2 Pro Stereo Passive PC Direct Box is the ideal solution for connecting unbalanced line level signals from laptops, CD/MP3 players, and DJ mixers to professional, balanced equipment. Durable, roadworthy construction and two Mu-metal shielded transformers provide high-quality signal connection solutions for a variety of live sound and recording applications.
Custom STLX Transformers
The MCD2 Pro features two of Samson‘s STLX Mu-Metal shielded transformers that deliver an extended, flat frequency response with ultra-low distortion and superior protection against hum and RF interference. The MCD2 Pro’s balanced outputs provide clean signals that are less susceptible to noise than unbalanced lines, allowing for longer cable runs.
The MCD2 Pro features dual 1/4″, RCA and a stereo 1/8″ input to accommodate any line level instrument or consumer audio connection. Its selectable Stereo/Mono sum switch allows users to accommodate typical mono “house” PA systems. Additionally, a 2-position 0dB/-12dB attenuation switch provides users with ample headroom to handle hotter inputs.
Housed in a 14-gauge steel chassis, the MCD2 Pro is built to withstand the abuse of the most demanding live tours. Its rigid outer shell protects all the MCD2 Pro’s internal connections, switches and solder joints from failure, ensuring quiet, reliable performance.SKU: SN0068
SAMSON S-com 4 – 4-Channel Compressor/Gate
The S-com 4 is a compact and versatile single-rack space device that provides four channels of high-quality dynamic processing with an Expander/Gate and Compressor/Limiter on each channel. The four channels operate independently or in stereo pairs. Its multi-segment LED metering displays input/output level as well as gain reduction. The Expander/Gate section features a continuously variable Threshold control, as well as a switch for fast or slow release times. The Compressor/Limiter section includes variable Threshold, Ratio and Output levels. S-com 4’s Enhancer switch restores high frequencies that are sometimes diminished by heavy compression. This wide-ranging combination of features makes the S-com 4 an efficient and versatile audio tool for a wide variety of applications. Its clean and quiet audio characteristics make it ideal where high sonic integrity is imperative.SKU: SN0059
SAMSON S-com plus – Stereo Compressor/Limiter
The S-com plus is a highly adaptable stereo compressor/limiter in an efficient single rackspace design. It is intended for situations where extra flexibility is required to optimize signal levels by delivering essential control along with simplicity of operation. S-com plus’s comprehensive and wide-ranging controls provide extensive manipulation of audio dynamics, even in the most complex situations.
Each channel features a wide range of variable control. A feature-rich Compressor section includes variable Threshold, Ratio, Attack and Release controls. Samson‘s SKD (Smart Knee Detector) circuit dynamically adjusts the compression curve to ensure a musical result. Our exclusive AEG (Auto Envelope Generator) function simplifies optimum settings by constantly analyzing the audio input and automatically adjusting the attack and release parameters based on the changing level. Key Inputs and Outputs are included for externally processing the control voltage.
The Expander/Gate features a variable threshold level and switchable release time (fast or slow). The Gate switch changes the downward expander ratio from “light” to “hard” gating for control ranging from subtle to an obvious effect. A dedicated Peak/Limiter with variable control provides protection against peak and overload independently of the compressor. When used in combination with the Compressor the Peak/Limiter offers even more precise control over dynamic levels.A functional De-esser improves audio quality by removing “S” from vocals and sibilance from overly bright signal sources such as cymbals. The Enhancer switch engages the EFR (Enhanced Frequency Recovery) circuit, which restores high frequencies that are sometimes diminished by heavy compression. Extensive metering includes Input/Output, Gain Reduction, De-esser Level, Gate Open/Close and LimiSKU: SN0060
