BBE Sonic Maximizer 482i

Effects ProcessorThe BBE Sonic Maximizer is actually already a classic, it is a studio effect, which is mostly used to "refresh" the stereo sum. This makes sense for live PA as well as studio applications.

Technically this is done by a kind of multi-band compression, in which the phase shifts of the different frequency ranges are adjusted so that extinctions that occur in speakers and hearing, are largely eliminated. The signal becomes more powerful, fresher and subjectively louder.Use the Process knob to adjust the height effect; The Lo-Contour knob adds tight bass. Simply put, you can imagine this as a (but very musical) loudness switch on the stereo system.

The device is addictive, and you should basically arrange it so that you can find the place where you can hear the effect clearly, and then simply screw down a bit - according to the principle: less is often more! The 482i is designed to be used both stereo and 2 x mono.

  • 2 Channels for stereo use or separate mono use
  • 5-Segment LED output level display
  • 18 dBu headroom
  • RCA and jack inputs and outputs
  • Hardwire Bypass
  • Bypass switch for comparing the processed and unprocessed signal
  • Housing format: 19 "/ 1 U

it would be really good except the noise

Krausz, 08.12.2014
It is simple and good. Improves bit time a final mix live, without driving the amp to clipping. What I definitely hate about it, that it has a midrange rumble which is clearly audible in "silent" environment, like in my home studio. I don't know if it is a singular unit fault or a design flow, but if decided to buy this unit, definitely hook it up and listen to the noise. Obviously on a motorcycle fest gig you don't give a shit and neither do the bikers.

Sonice Maximizer 428i

MrRascal , 11.11.2013
I wanted to get one of these Bad boys after seeing a DJ on youtube explain how they work. This is so easy to use and set up you literally just run your sound through it with patch cables ( jack leads) but the sound you get once it is running is so good you wont believe your ears. What it does is basically send the bass and tops signal out at the same time and harmonizes them so you get clear deep bass and clear high tops ( I know those are not scientific terms) I use this as part of my set so I have sound from my mixer into the sonic maximizer, then into the crossover and then the amp! I have used mine ever since I got it and it will now be in my rack forever and ever and ever etc. Fantastic piece of kit and you will be amazed how nice your bass and tops sound with this running through your system you will never go back to just putting it through your amplifier. Highly, highly recommended piece of kit!
