Overstayer M-A-S 2-Channel Harmonics Processor

2-channel harmonics processor/tape simulator with blend control
MFR# Model 8101

Product Description

The Overstayer M-A-S was designed to be an analog ‘more’ control. More color, more harmonics, more tone. It gives you the harmonic character and peak rounding of classic recording and mixing chains in a simple, highly controllable rack-mount unit.

The limiting nature of the M-A-S stages rounds and bends peaks resulting in increased apparent volume, without the timing artifacts associated with compression. Its integrated pushbutton High and Low EQ presets, High Pass Filter and Emphasis circuits help further shape the harmonic content of source material.  Rotary switch controls for Mix and Output make settings easy to recall.

Use it on the individual tracks for cumulative (console to tape like) benefits. The M-A-S can add consistency as peaks and harsh transients get smoothed and absorbed into the performance, making balancing tracks in the mix easier, and lessening the need for bus limiting down the line. Used on a full mix, the added harmonic content can energize, and add cohesiveness and detail. The Mix control allows the character to be balanced to taste.

Bring harmonics and tone to your bass, synths, drum machines and samplers with the integrated front panel high impedance input.

Great finishing box.. easy to use.. subtle to extreme harmonic enhancement.

By Morningstar S on January 19, 2021

I love using this on the front end while tracking and on my 2 bus when mixing. I highly recommend it!

By Rob C on October 23, 2020

This unit adds a nice subtle saturation to a mix. You can also push it for more harmonic saturation and compressed signal. I enjoy add this on the end of my mix bus signal chain.

Absolutely delicious! Great for direct tracking bass guitar, a no brainer, but very useful on individual tracks or mix bus for subtle but very effective saturation/

By Dave P on January 19, 2020

I was told this box was like tape in a box. I've never really used tape but I've heard it. This thing has THAT sound. I run almost all my tracks and mixes through it.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
