Vertigo Sound VSM-2 Mix Satellite MK2 - Full Version

Fully analog mix and mastering tool with 2nd and 3rd harmonic generators
MFR# VSM-2 Full

Product Description

The Vertigo Sound VSM-2 is a creative fully analog Mix and Mastering tool. The VSM offers MS, Blending and two sophisticated coloration generators in 2U size.
The VSM-2 is also available in a “basic version” without harmonic generators. This represents a "All In One"-solution for Mastering studios with no more need to invest in mastering consoles, switching devices, monitor controllers, MS En & de-coders etc.

Like all Vertigo Sound products, the VSM-2 is manufactured to the highest industry standards to guarantee the utmost performance and maximum durability. The VSM-2 Mix Satellite (MK2) now comes with new potentiometers. The noise floor is 4dB lower than the already very low noise Mk1 version. All controls are stepped excluding 2nd/3rd Drive (Full Version), Mix, level & shape.


Features

VSM-2 Basic:

  • All analog, latency free processing
  • Two fully balanced inserts on XLR offering MS En & DE-coding
  • Level compensated MS En & DE-coding
  • Insert 1 provides Dry-Wet Mix control "Parallel Compression" for LR and MS
  • Insert 2 provides "M&S Stereo Width" control
  • Level compensated AFL Solo for M and S-Signal
  • All controls can be easily recalled via stepped controls, pointer knobs & fine scales
  • Hardwire bypass for all and each processing stage
  • Excellent headroom with up to +30dbu at the Ins & Outs
  • Level matching of the inputs and outputs
  • Fast input and output metering plus various clip leds
  • Color coded switch controls for easy intuitive operation
  • Superior crafted & anodized front plate in "sun orange" & blue metallic silk screen print

 

VSM-2 "Full Version" additional features:

  • Two independent stereo coloration circuits
  • Stereo & M or S Generation of pure 2nd & 3rd harmonics
  • Each coloration generator is independently switchable to M, S or LR
  • Excessive harmonic filtering possibilities for each harmonic generator

  • Unique "Track" mode for processing individual instruments
  • Soft & Hard clip switching capability



The VSM-2 a.k.a. Mix Satellite offers plenty of hugely useful functions for mixing and mastering in one unit. Of course in daily studio life, even in the worst case scenario, you won't need all the functions of the VSM-2 at once. Carefully spot the problems you want to fix and choose the appropriate processing technique of the VSM-2.
The Mix Satellite allows you to try different processing strategies without any loss of time!

You can switch between conventional Stereo and MS processing within seconds or you can blend the Mix with the unprocessed signal by dialing only one knob.The Solo M&S Function allows you to listen closely to M or S and to optimize your processing setting!

Technical progress and purity of analogue and digital equipment effectively removed distortion as a stylistic device from the audio engineers' tool repertoire of today.The VSM-2 Harmonic generators allow you to colour, saturate, enhance, compress, limit or distort your program material! Now you are able to put real analog life into "dead sounds" out of the box. All parameters to create your own kind of musical coloration are on the hand with the Mix Satellite VSM-2!

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!

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.

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.

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.
