The Rupert Neve MBT (Master Bus Transformer) is a 2-channel Compressor/Limiter/Stereo Field Processor with tranformers that provides an incredible array of flavourful options designed to sweeten, enhance, drive, widen, and utterly transform source material, making it the ultimate tool for musical colouration. Equally at home on a full mix, groups, stems or individual sources, the MBT pairs undeniably legendary tonal quality with an immensely flexible set of controls to shape your sound.

With an all-new optical compressor design, the Color Comp excels at accentuating the non-linear distortion and “colorful” characteristics of the Opto cell to bring source material a new sense of life and depth. Also contains a Blend control, making it easy to use the compression circuit in parallel with the uncompressed source material and a release is variable from 100mS to 1.5S.

The Width section is designed to increase the perceived stereo spread without losing low-end focus. It is additive only, with a greater range for more extreme operation and there is a variable HPF from 50Hz to 800Hz to adjust the width content so that low frequencies remain more centered in the mix as the mids and highs are spread out to create more space.

With more dynamic saturation and transient clipping, Super Silk is the latest advancement to this beloved technology: featuring independent Red, Blue,
Harmonics and Zener Drive controls, harmonic manipulation is taken to a whole new level with the MBT.
