MASTER BUSS CONVERTER

Dual Path A-D Converter & Limiter

The ultimate tool for creating digital signals with the tone, transparency, and power expected from Rupert Neve Designs.

Whether you’re tracking, printing mixes or mastering, the Master Buss Converter is a revelation in quality and functionality of A-D conversion technology. The analog drive circuitry allows the MBC’s converter to be fed by either a class-A transformerless path for maximum transparency, or by custom interstage audio transformers with variable Silk for a wide variety of tonal enhancements. Coupled with an astonishingly musical limiter, the MBC is always the best choice to capture your analog signals with breathtakingly three-dimensional accuracy.

The MBC’s 24-bit/192kHz converters were developed after years of careful listening, and represent a further advancement of the design within the RMP-D8. The precision­ controlled internal clock’s minimal jitter and phase noise allow the converters to capture the complete performance of your music with a great degree of accuracy – simply put, the MBC creates an uncanny digital representation of your analog signals.

To connect into your interface or digital console, the MBC is equipped with AES, S/PDIF and TOSLINK outputs capable of simultaneous output to multiple destinations. The word clock output allows the MBC to act as high-end master clock for your entire setup, and the word clock input allows external sync to a separate master clock if desired. Finally, to seamlessly integrate the MBC into a multichannel conversion environment, four standard levels from -14dBFS to -20dBFS can be selected to accurately match your other converters. These Reference Level calibration standards are implemented with a superb degree of accuracy via high-precision resistors and relay-controlled stepped attenuation.

SELECTABLE ANALOG DRIVE PATHS
The very best of class-A transformer-less and custom transformer-coupled designs at the touch of a button.

TRANSFORMER PATH WITH SILK / TEXTURE
Add weight and punch with a dedicated custom inter-stage transformer before the converter. Silk / Texture allows you to dial in the harmonic content and drive saturation of this signal path.

CLASS-A TRANSFORMER-LESS PATH
Maximizes clarity and transparency of the input signal.

COMPOUND ACTIVE RELEASE LIMITER
Ultra-fast response, useful both for musical sculpting and transparent level control.

SIDE CHAIN HPF
Tighten the response of your limiting with a 12dB / Octave SC HPF sweepable from 20Hz to 250Hz.

24-BIT / 192kHz REFERENCE CONVERSION
Unparalleled analog capture with precision clocking using top-of-the-line chips.

MULTISTANDARD CONNECTIVITY
Connect to any of your digital devices with AES, S/PDIF and TOSLINK all simultaneously available.

PRECISION CLOCKING
Maximum accuracy with minimal jitter and phase noise, able to operate as a master clock or sync from another master.
