RND Master Bus Transformer

RND Master Bus Transformer


For over six decades, audio transformers have been the bedrock of Mr. Rupert Neve’s audio circuit design philosophy – and Rupert Neve Designs’ bespoke transformers are an integral part of virtually every RND product. Packed with these transformers, the new Master Bus Transformer (MBT) provides an incredible array of flavorful options designed to sweeten, enhance, drive, widen, and utterly transform source material, making it the ultimate tool for musical colouration.

Create Tonal Magic with the Shelf EQ
With 3 octave ranges, gentle slopes and minimal phase shifts, the all-new 2-band Shelf EQ section was created to emphasise simplicity and elegance. This smooth & musical EQ is excellent at providing just the right amount of tonal enhancement – especially when interacting with the other sections of the MBT.

Breathe In New Life with the Colour Comp
With an all-new optical compressor design, the Colour Comp excels at accentuating the Opto cell's non-linear distortion and “colourful” characteristics to bring source material a new sense of life and depth. The Colour Comp includes two selectable ratios, a sweepable high pass side-chain filter, variable threshold and release, 20dB of Class-A makeup gain, and a Blend control for parallel processing.

Super Silky Smooth
Introduced nearly twenty years ago, the Silk circuit has long been a favourite for Rupert Neve Designs users. First available as a simple on/off switch, then with selectable Red and Blue modes and the variable Texture control, Silk exists to enhance and control even and odd order harmonic content in any source material.

Main features:

  • Revitalizes mono or stereo tracks, stems, mixes, and masters
  • Transformer-coupled Class A signal paths
  • Quickly adjust tone with the gentle and musical Shelf EQ
  • Add dynamic character with opto-based Color Comp
  • Add that missing weight and power with Super Silk
  • Use the Width section to create dimension without losing focus
  • Drive and level match the interstage transformers with the I/O amplifiers
  • Handcrafted in the USA
