This is a multiband compressor limited broadcast clipper.
Please note there are several MODEL. The mine is dernire version with display LEDs and contains all the internal processing cards.
For those who know well the Optimod 8100A and a 8100A 8182a is the same except two:
On the 8100A there is a Stereo Encoder for FM multiplex output.
8182a ago on an output line level L / R symtrique either flat or with a clipper prac diffrent but especially that of 8100A.
The inputs and outputs are on symtriques terminal pro.
There is a port to plug in the processing chain rducteur a noise or other filters and spciaux Stereo encoder for broadcast TV Stereo sound. This port can also use the 8182a in simple compressor / limiter for the Tagus output is the output of the multiband compressor section before any limitation or why not use the function limitation finals.
Paramtres level is like on the 8100A for the compressor section: level of clipping, relche level of the compressor, the low level of coupling with the rest of the spectrum and finally the level of the gate.
It is easy, as with the majority of stuff Orban, to get his beautiful trs, trs stable and spend several days.
The manual is super complete. At the height of the complexity of the machine!
And the sound is identical, according to internal config, then that of the 8100A or more round and warm.
INTERESTED point this machine is equipped with a loudness CONTRL map, switchable by switch or not, who can avoid a denser sound dj too dense. Rsultat good in all circumstances.
In addition, the method of relche can switch simply by switching be like "linear" as a 8100A or ultimate in "exponential" as the extension XT1 or XT2. More rduction the gain, the greater the relche becomes slow to avoid saturation.
The final clip is excellent. This is a two-band clipper named "Hilbert" trs trs really good and difficult to take into default.
The Optimod 8182a TV is a superb machine. Much more comprehensive than a 8100A. Against by not possible to mount a limiter XT 5 or 6 strips option.
Having said this machine is wonderful. Big sound or trs trs always gentle with little distortion even with a hard rglage.
A machine to end of string or pre-treatment levels CONTRL well before your final numrique process. Big advantage for use with any Systm audio inputs and outputs as symtriques asymtriques or line level.
If you want to do radio or web radio is no problem even if the dpart it Pipelines Limited to handle the sound of the TV it has no effect. I personally prfre 8182a of the sound alone that of a single 8100A.
Even when there is a catch in everything! This is the price! Expensive but worth it as all products Orban!
Attention of more and more rare on the market opportunity.
