OUR PART # STEREO-VITALIZER-MK2
The Stereo Vitalizer MK2 represents the second generation of the stereo versions in the Vitalizer Program EQ line from SPL.
It is used primarily to shape the sound of individual instruments and to optimize mixes in a musically and acoustically correct way. Its outstanding sound characteristics and extremely straightforward method of operation makes it an indispensable tool in the fields of recording, mixing, mastering, digital signal processing and sound amplification, where it is the reference for this type of sound optimizing.
The SPL Vitalizer Technology
The Vitalizer "un-covers" sounds by means of a slight time shift of the signals as a function of their loudness. Soft sound components that were masked by louder ones are thus emphasized and the smallest details become clearly audible to create a life-like, natural-sounding atmosphere. Furthermore, the entire sound is ideally adjusted to suit our hearing capabilities. The material is perceived as sounding more transparent, and the sense of loudness is increased while avoiding listener fatigue.
Note: The Stereo Vitalizer MK2 is not an "Exciter"! In processing the sound all the information is taken from the original signal. No distortions are generated as is the case with generator-type exciters. This means the resulting drawback of these devices, namely the tendency towards sharpness and listener fatigue, has been eliminated from the Stereo Vitalizer MK2.
The SPL Vitalizer in practice
Voluminous bass sounds you can feel not only make the DJ's life easier - the Stereo Vitalizer MK2 also allows dance/techno sound amplification to produce enormous volume without detriment to the final sound quality. In mixing you can clearly position different bass sounds with ease. Excessively hard or sharp sounds in the mid-range are easy to manage, intelligibility and accurate detail are significantly increased and the improved presence brings voices to the fore. The brilliant, silky highs round out the overall sound perfectly.
