Roger Mayer 615 smooth w/48V Adapter
The 615 smooth ANALOGUE DYNAMICS PROCESSOR is an ultra high speed analogue unique design that controls dynamics in a new and innovative way. The results obtained from this zero latency device cannot be obtained with any plug-in and the extended frequency response make it useful for all signal sources from Bass to Percussive. Designed to be used both in the studio or live it has dual operating levels with professional headroom performance.
The use of real time ultra high speed analogue dynamic processing to control audio program peaks effectively before you go into the digital domain is clearly the best way forward to record a great sound. With zero digital latency, the player can feel and judge perfectly his playing technique to produce results that are truly outstanding.
The 615 smooth uses advanced unique feed forward gain reduction techniques developed from their roots in the legendary RM 58 Limiters to give great player feeling whilst controlling the dynamics to produce smooth controlled output that is perfect for digital recordings or amplifier tones. The ability to control the dynamics in such a free and natural sounding way enables amplfiers to be set to a predetermined maximum distortion point. When recording digitally as the maximum level is now controlled the player can relax and play freely without worrying about record level whilst getting a great consistent sound with maximum resolution from the DAW.
The 615 can also add extra 2nd Harmonics to the peaks enhancing the tone with a very natural musical flavor. The transparency and detail of the original source is maintained using a Class A Discrete Audio Path with extended frequency response. This means that the 615 smooth can be used with great success for Bass Guitar together with all other normal studio tasks. It has universal applications for all sorts of percussive instruments as well.
