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

Another high-quality, easy-to-use Sonic Maximiser from BBE
Cunny, 08.06.2020
24 years ago, I began using a BBE 362NR a stereo re-summing/Noise reduction unit (mainly to clean up old demos that had been recorded to compact cassette at standard speed, & twice the standard speed.

The 882i appears to be a step-up from my trusty 362NR in that the TSR/XLR connectivity and other sonic improvements mean that I will be using this unit to clear up acoustic, electric, vocal & synth patches, & also for mixdown as the bass response through studio monitors or headphones sounds exceptional.

I've also spotted a way to use this unit in helping to "correct" any extreme panning especially with stereo/effected synth pads or guitar multi-effects at the pre-production/tracking stage.

On the evidence of my last few days with the BBE Sonic Maximizer 882i, I doubt that I will leave it for longer than 24 months (let alone years) before my next BBE acquisition

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!
