BBE Sonic Maximizer 882i

Maximizer Signal 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 882i is the luxury model of the family. It works in dual mono mode; On the back are adjustable XLR inputs and outputs, which meet even the most professional requirements.

  • Sound enhancement
  • The Maximizer performs a phase correction between three frequency bands to compensate for phase and amplitude distortions in the loudspeaker, thus providing more clarity
  • Format: 19"/ 1U

BBE SONIC MAXIMIZER 882I
Jouriy, 20.07.2015
This kind piece of equipment I have use in live performance about 10 years or maybe more.
Of Course is a different kind of models, but i still have in my rack space.
Not so long ago I order BBE SONIC MAXIMIZER 882I for my home studio.
And believe me, once again I discover that BBE doing amazing things with my sound.
I can explain like this
1. From very poor sound in the high frequency, I got rich and more present.
2. From dark sound in the lower frequency I got very good and punch bass.
I guess that every body can hear that the high and low frequency is changing. But there is something else, I wan to so say.
TRY TO PLAY IN LIVE PERFORMANCE ALL NIGHT WITH, BBE.
AND THEN PLAY THE LAST SONG WITHOUT, BBE.
Then you will understand what BBE doing with the sound.

Sound Maximizer! Yess!
27.01.2016
I use it in the studio for better mixing result. Tried it a few days ago. I had two samples; one is with BBE and the other one is without BBE. I must say the result is very perceptional. BBE brings air to the overall mix. Not only bass and treble improvement in the sound but it's more than this. There is a huge difference.
At this price range ( it was 500 USD two years ago ) there is no negative side. Buy it and hear the difference!
