Great stereo opto-compressor for bus compression and overall mix compression.

The MC2 is a professional studio-quality stereo compressor in a compact half-rack format. Simple to use yet extremely powerful, the MC2 by Joemeek will bring out the best in any line-level stereo material and give the gloss of a professional studio to all your performances. It can be used for both recording/mastering, and live work.

Think of the MC2 as three separate pieces of equipment:
¢A line level stereo preamplifier

¢A stereo Joemeek compressor

¢A stereo width processor

As Joe Meek always said, "If it sounds right, it is right." The MC2 will make your mixes sound right.
