At the 127th AES Convention in New York, TUBE-TECH will introduce the RM 2, a new two-slot rack that vertically accommodates any two TUBE-TECH M Series tube-based modules. The new two RU frame enables the user to own multiple TUBE-TECH modules and one small two-channel rack, offering the sound of TUBE-TECH in a smaller and less expensive package than ever before. The RM-2 is unique in that it is designed from the ground up for tubes. The power supply and internal voltage rails are specifically built for tube-based electronics, offering much higher supply voltages than the modular 500 racks can offer. This new two-slot RM2 rack, along with the existing eight-vertical slot RM8 rack, expands the flexibility of TUBE-TECH while lowering the per-channel cost. The PM 1A module combines an exceptionally smooth-sounding microphone preamplifier and direct instrument amplifier, and is suitable for a bass, guitar, keyboard, or other instrument, in addition to a state-of-the-art mic input. The EM 1A passive tube equalizer module is an exact copy of the "classic" CL 1B Pultec-style program EQ. The EQ combines both shelving (LF) and peaking (HF) EQ sections, together with a filter section. The all tube-based, optical CM 1A compressor is designed for both recording and mixing and is equally suited for a wide-range of applications, from delicate vocal recordings to critical instrument processing. The CM 1A has proven itself to be a serious upgrade of the industry standard CL 1B, and is already being praised by several top engineers around the world. The expected MSRP for the new TUBE-TECH RM 2 is $1,500.
