For Master Compression and Vocal Compression, TUBE-TECH Makes a big Difference in an all Digital Production Environment.
Chief Engineer Ossian Ryner decided to use the TUBE-TECH multiband compressor SMC 2B as the main mix compressor, as well as the TUBE-TECH classic compressor CL 1B on the lead vocals for the Danish version of the Worldwide Talent Show: X-Factor.
The show was mixed on an SSL C200 digital console, with sweet analogue help from the Tube-Techs.
“The SMC2B has improved the overall sound of the production by a rather big percentage,” says Ossian Ryner. Production of the show took place at DR Byen in Copenhagen, an all new all digital National TV and Radio production unit.
