The Cwejman MBC-3 is a traditionnal multiband compressor made for the Eurorack format.
Multiband compression divides the frequency spectrum into different sections, or bands, so that each has its own unique compression settings. This allows for example a longer attack time for the low band, while keeping a shorter attack time in a higher band.
By using a multiband compressor, it is possible to closely tailor the compression to the different elements in a mix and compress the sound more transparently than with a standard single-band compressor.
The crossover frequencies define the range of frequencies contained in each band.
The MBC-3 features three bands with voltage controllable variable crossovers for Low/Mid and Mid/High. Thanks to separate outputs for Low, Mid and High, the crossover section can be used independently for spectral processing with other modules.
Each band of the MBC-3 includes following parameters:
- Threshold (low/high): The level that the signal needs to rise above in order for the compressor to begin to work. Any signal that passes above the threshold gets compressed.
- Ratio: The amount of gain reduction the compressor applies when the signal passes the threshold.
- Attack: The time it takes for compression to kick in once the signal passes the threshold.
- Release (slow/fast): The time it takes for compression to stop once the signal falls below the threshold.
- Make Up Gain: The gain control at the output of a compressor
- Gate: Allows you to trim or chop up signals
Each section features a sidechain input, an envelope follower output and an individual signal output.
All parameters are voltage controllable.
The module provides an individual output for each band, and a mixer section where all three bands outputs can be summed.
We currently do not accept pre-orders for Cwejman modules. For some products, there are waiting lists with pre-orders from the years 2013 to 2017, which are being processed as a matter of priority.
If you’d like to be informed as soon as this module is back in stock, please activate the availability notification via e-mail.
Please note: The number of Cwejman modules is always limited and much lower than the number of interested parties. Therefore, we recommend to order IMMEDIATELY and ONLINE if a Cwejman product becomes available. Enquiries via e-mail or telephone are usually not fast enough.
If the demand is higher than the supply, unfulfillable pre-orders will be deleted. In this case you’ll receive an e-mail. (Pre-orders on the waiting lists mentioned above are excluded from this policy.)
