Hannes Bieger, editor at Sound & Recording, wrote a review on the SPL Transpressor for the magazine’s April issue. It’s not the first time a specialized magazine has written about the Transpressor, take for example Professional Audio and Xound. But what Hannes Bieger did was kinda summarize it all (his way):
“In principle, there is no signal that couldn’t be processed with the Transpressor.. [...] Its specialty is definitely (miked) drum tracks. True, the Transient Designer had already proved its effectiveness in this regard, but the Transpressor takes everything a step further, delivering better results.”
SPL has earned a reputation as a manufacturer of quality preamps, signal processors and controllers for the recording and mixing segments. At the same time, mastering engineers keen on high-end gear have made our brand a favorite in their studios. To bring these two worlds closer together, we now introduce the NEOS mixer, based on our tried-and-tested 120 V technology.
We conceived the NEOS first and foremost for mixing and monitoring applications in computer-based environments. The compact 7U 19-inch mixer includes 12 stereo buses for 24 channels, and a master bus. Every stereo bus can be switched to mono, while the Master bus features a complete monitoring section. Thus, the NEOS is ideal to mix stereo stems and specific mono channels in analog, after having done all the editing digitally on a computer.
