The ultimate tool for creating digital signals with the tone, transparency, and power expected from Rupert Neve Designs.
Whether you’re tracking, printing mixes or mastering, the Master Buss Converter is a revelation in quality and functionality of A-D conversion technology. The analog drive circuitry allows the MBC’s converter to be fed by either a class-A transformerless path for maximum transparency, or by custom interstage audio transformers with variable Silk for a wide variety of tonal enhancements. Coupled with an astonishingly musical limiter, the MBC is always the best choice to capture your analog signals with breathtakingly three-dimensional accuracy.

  • Selectable Analog Drive Paths
  • The very best of class-A transformerless and custom transformer-coupled designs at the touch of a button.
  • Transformer Path with Silk / Texture
  • Add weight and punch with a dedicated custom inter-stage transformer before the converter. Silk / Texture allows you to dial in the harmonic content and drive saturation of this signal path.
  • Class-A Transformerless Path
  • Maximizes clarity and transparency of the input signal.
  • Active Compound Release Analog Limiting
  • Push your levels further with fewer artifacts than plug-ins, and introduce clip safety for tracking or broadcast.
  • Side Chain HPF
  • Tighten the response of your limiting with a 12dB / Octave SC HPF sweepable from 20Hz to 250Hz
  • 24-bit/192kHz Reference Conversion
  • Unparalleled analog capture with precision clocking using top-of-the-line chips.
  • Multi-Standard Connectivity
  • Connect to any of your digital devices with AES, S/PDIF and TOSLINK all simultaneously available.
  • Precision Clocking
  • Maximum accuracy with minimal jitter and phase noise, able to operate as a master clock or sync from another master.
