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 limiter. It is housed in a 1U19" rack mount alloy case. It is primarily intended foruse as ade-esser, reducingunattractive high frequencies, with minimum colorationand loss of clarity.Automatic time constants and optimisation techniques for the gain reductionminimises the number of controls. The advantage is not only simple operation butalso increased performance for highly dynamic and inconsistent materials withoutthe need for continuous readjustments.With wide input range, up to +29dBu input and low noise, the MDS-2 can be usedin many different applications.Theside chaincan be switched to M-S, which can be used to “zoom” inon highfrequencies in the centre of the stereo image. With this function switched in thethreshold is 6dB lower for the centre image comparedto extreme left and right.The M-S function does not affect the actual audio path
