Close Up: BBE Sound, Inc.

Innovative High-Def Sound Tech For 30 Years: Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Fullerton-based BBE Sound, Inc. is dedicated to pioneering audio improvement technologies for everyday consumers and sound professionals alike. BBE High Definition Sound technologies proliferate throughout the audio entertainment production spectrum––from the stage and studio to consumer electronics manufacturers who implement BBE technologies into their products. The company’s flagship is the BBE Sonic Maximizer® processing technology which benefits any recording or sound reproduction system by restoring clarity and definition, and bringing a natural live presence to an audio source. Renowned engineer/producers who regularly use the Sonic Maximizer® include Ed Cherney, Ryan Hewitt and Tony Visconti.


The MP24M Digital Mixing Console: BBE recently rolled out its latest break-through product, the MP24M digital mixing console—the world’s only digital mixer to offer the BBE Sonic Maximizer® process. Designed for live mixing, its great sound is born from the use of Class A mic preamps and SHARC 32-bit floating point DSP processors. It was designed to be easy to use and intuitive to navigate––a different experience from mixers that require scrolling through endless menus to make on the fly mix adjustments. Nearly all of the MP24M’s functions and parameters have a knob, switch or button on the top of the console. Adjusting EQ, for instance, simply requires selecting a channel and adjusting the desired EQ parameter, there’s a knob for every parameter. Longtime analog mixers will find the MP24M as intuitive as their faithful analog workhorse—only quieter, cleaner and with more sonic possibilities.

MP24M Specs: The MP24M Digital Mixer’s unparalleled audio mixing experience comes from a powerful array of features. In addition to BBE’s Sonic Maximizer® processing, it has 24 ultra-high headroom BBE Class A, Twin Servo mic preamps; 2 Digital Effects Engines Featuring BBE's Proprietary FX Library; a 7-inch full color LCD display; Remote Mixing via PC or iPad, with optional Wi-Fi module; 32-bit floating-point SHARC DSP Processors; and a virtual rack of 14 31-Band 1/3 Octave graphic equalizers available on all analog outputs.
