SPL has expanded its Mastering Series hardware with the launch of the updated PassEQ passive mastering equaliser, DMC stereo mastering console, and MC16 analogue mastering monitor controller.

DMC stereo mastering consoleThe DMC stereo mastering console is engineered from the ground-up making it not only more flexible with better specs (and at half the cost) than SPL’s previous console, but also more ergonomic and sized to fit in all types of studio furniture. The 3U-high console has four stereo inputs and four stereo sources, with two stereo recording outputs, as well as three stereo and two mono speaker outputs that can be expanded with the new MC16 controller (see below). The new DMC console operates on the same 120V DC audio rail like each of the other SPL Mastering Series processors.

With Dolby Atmos and Auro 3D projects in view, the MC16 monitoring controller operates on SPL’s 120V DC audio rail and sports the world’s first 16-gang custom-designed precision potentiometer from SPL. Most mastering studios use their LR speakers (and subwoofer) for both stereo and multichannel monitoring; to expand on that standard set-up, SPL has developed a method of pairing the MC16 with their new DMC console for integration of multichannel monitoring with a stereo mastering environment. The combination of DMC and MC16 allows mastering studios to work in all current audio playback formats at the same quality level, all without reconnecting any speakers.

PassEQ passive mastering equaliserThe updated PassEQ passive mastering equaliser complements the range of 120V audio rail Mastering Series processors. Each channel offers 72 passive filters – all built with high-grade single core coils. Compared to its predecessor, the new PassEQ sports an extended high-frequency EQ range to 35kHz making it ideally suited for ‘ultra high frequency’ processing, and the Mid Frequency Cut now starts at 200Hz compared to its predecessor at 1kHz. Other new features include a ±10dB output gain control for precise calibration and the Auto Bypass function with interval control that is also featured on SPL’s Iron mastering compressor and the PQ mastering equaliser.

The SPL DMC stereo mastering console will carry a street price od US$6,499; the

MC16 16-channel analogue monitoring controller a street price of US$5,999 and the

PassEQ passive mastering equaliser a street price of US$5,999. All three will be available in Black or Red models, and are expected to be ship in Q1 2018.
