Serpent Audio Splice MKII FET dual-mode FET compressor

The Serpent Audio Splice MKII is professional compressor unit that provides you with control over your processing when applying compression to your mix. The Splice has a unique mode that allows switching between the classic Blackface or vintage Bluestripe circuits to provide you with two amazing sounding choices. The input stage has a fully adjustable rotary potentiometer, turning the input control clockwise will increase the amount of signal entering the unit and increase the amount of compression taking place to you have full control of your audio.

Serpent Audio Splice MKII Features

  • Four Compressor circuits in one box:
    • Input Circuit Black + Output Circuit Black = “Classic Blackface Mode”
    • Input Blue + Output Blue = “Classic Bluestripe Mode”
    • Input Blue + Output Black = “Blueface Mode” (Unique to the Splice)
    • Input Black + Output Blue = “Blackstripe Mode” (Unique to the Splice)
  • Stereo Linkable w/ front panel switch
  • External Send & Return w/ front panel switch
  • “All Buttons In” / Slam Mode front panel switch
