The Joe Meek MC2 is a stereo optical compressor that is suitable for all sorts of instruments and applications. It has 1/4 inch connections for both channels and is powered by the specific power supply that comes with it.


Using the Joe Meek MC2 is a pretty easy thing to do and for those of us who have experience with compressors will have no problems at all learning this unit. Even if you are a beginner in the studio, learning this compressor doesn't take all that much as it is basic in make up. While it is a stereo compressor, the parameters available control both channels as a whole and it is not possible to split it into two separate compressors. From left to right, the MC2 has parameters for input gain, compression, slope (ratio), attack, release, make up gain, gain reduction hold, and stereo worth. It also has buttons to put some of these parameters in or out as well as metering for gain reduction and standard VU. The manual for the Joe Meek MC2 is well put together but it isn't necessary as the unit is easy enough to use on its own.


The sound quality of the Joe Meek MC2 is above average as it is clean and will add a lot to your signal. I've used this compressor on everything from drums of all types to electric, acoustic and bass guitars, all with pretty good results. I have to say that I probably like it best on drums, especially on kick drum. There are a lot of parameters available which make it a versatile compressor that offers up a lot of control over your sound. All in all this is a nice sounding compressor regardless of the incredibly inexpensive price.


I've had the Joe Meek MC2 stereo compressor for about a year and half and I'm definitely glad that I picked one up as it has been a great addition to my home studio. The MC2 provides home studio owners with a great sounding compressor without any sort of heavy price tag. If you are a home studio owner like I am and are looking for a reliable, but inexpensive outboard compressor you need to check out the MC2.
