SPL Stereo Vitalizer MK2-T
What are the effects or types of effects available?
Enhancement of low, medium, low limiter, expander Stereo.

Are they editable? Via an editor Mac / PC?
Not to my knowledge it is only hardware.

Is it a rack or rack-mount model?
1U rack

What technology is used?
Analog + lamp

What is the connection?
2 x XLR / Jack in - 2 x XLR / Jack out


The general configuration is it simple?
Yes we branch and used.

The manual is clear and sufficient?
Yes, but only in English or German.

Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
Each button easy to use by a single cons do not go as Bourin with effect as it is daunting but if you can not abuse shows a very rich color with a subtle and accurate settings is millimeter .


The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
Again if you do not go as Bourin it is very effective and if you do not brake it would use all the time.

Which instruments do you use?
I use it on a few main melody track. But especially on the master to complete the piece.
It gives space to the music and it enhances the bass without saturation effect.

Which ones you prefer, you hate?
I have not done any hands on use stolen because despite this simplicity I'm sure we can do a lot of things interesting.


How long have you been using?
2 months

Did you try many other models before buying it?
Only software but I must admit that was stuck by the efficiency of this unit.
All software that I have used including emulator SPL Vitaliser look ridiculous, because
not enough desired effect is really too many parameters which will not even the 50%
what can the Vitaliser just turning a knob.

What is so special that you like most and least?
Most: he did what he does and hope he does it very perfectly.
The least: we tend to get used to the sound and if you do not go gently with the settings you can
distort the sound without realizing it, so was used sparingly.

How do you rate the quality / price?
Frankly when I ordered it I thought "my god I could buy lots of good plugin
do what the Vitalizer is "and once received and Racke, when I used it on a piece that I found perfect ben I repeated umpteen times" is not possible "before accepting how the module works and the price is much lower than the results.

With experience, you do again this choice?
Without a doubt, I divide them for anything.

SPL Stereo Vitalizer MK2-T
This is a stereo expander enhancer and very good quality.
Module rack 1U 19 "analog connector with XLR and Jack.
A Knob by function, including a Drive setting very effectively.


Bought used so no manual but it is going very well.
Setup is very simple.


The enhancer is really good: to adjust the low frequency and mid-high intensity I push them way down to hear the good cutoff and then I dose intensity.


This is the main reason for my review: I had earlier version without blue tube older.
The change between the two is dramatic: the tube version, not to mention the added heat from the lamp is much better thought out.
The effect is more subtle and precise, especially the signal to noise ratio is improved so that we can grow very far without the effect of breath to hear (on the previous version one could hear a whisper from an embarrassing third of the effect max !!!).
Kudos to SPL for improvement.
SPL has released the next plugin version I tested demo ... nothing to see I tested alongside the soft and hard with the same settings with no presence or shine unless the app to push the plug too far, stifling all frequencies untreated.
They will have to do better with that I resell my rack!

tony-blackman's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

SPL Stereo Vitalizer MK2-T
is a compressor / tube stereo enhancer.

the connection is complete.


config is the child that will rule over his ear ....

the manual is short but sufficient


this rack is very effective on a bus or low DRUM

or to hold for any instrument type synth .... but it should be used
sparingly and I much prefer a good old channel strip as my TLA 5060 ....


I bought new € 780 the first one I received had a galley of 1month worries .... ....
the second was working well.

This rack is useful on buses as I have said earlier but I think it's a disappointment on an entire mix!
yes I managed to work my best mix with my AU plugs that Bousin I sold off immediately.

So, the AF review are useful to get an idea but that should not be taken for granted.

for those like me who watch this rack to the side mastering attributed to him, I advise them to save a little more and go somewhere else or send them mix a real studio because I have nothing see who can sound like the mastering.

Everyone seems to have spread the word about products AU SPL .... their opinion is always "Genial" Excellent ...... STOP!!

I have yet triturated this rack in all directions.
yes there is good quality, almost no breath .... but people need to stop on AF-on product evaluation

I'm repeating myself but I put € 780 into it and frankly I cry fraud, between 500 and 600 it would have been resold raisonnable.je him after eight months at 400 € ...

for what it is I think the BBE Sonic Maximizer from home for much less can do so even if they are without lights, so ..... to meditate.
this is a personal opinion
