The MDS-2 is a High Frequency Limiter which is often used as a De-Esser.

It can also replace Acceleration Limiters for vinyl disk cutting.

The MDS-2 is a dual mono, linkable, high frequency lim
iter. It is housed in a 1U
19" rack mount alloy case. It is primarily intended for
use as a
de-esser
, reducing
unattractive high frequencies, with minimum coloration
and loss of clarity.
Automatic time constants and optimisation techniques f
or the gain reduction
minimises the number of controls. The advantage is n
ot only simple operation but
also increased performance for highly dynamic and inconsi
stent materials without
the need for continuous readjustments.
With wide input range, up to +29dBu input and low n
oise, the MDS-2 can be used
in many different applications.
The
side chain
can be switched to M-S, which can be used to “zoom” in
on high
frequencies in the centre of the stereo image. With t
his function switched in the
threshold is 6dB lower for the centre image compared
to extreme left and right.
The M-S function does not affect the actual audio path
