The really great features to take note of
with the VSP MK2 are, I beleive, the high performance and flexibility. There
simply are no fully integrated processors with this kind of flexibility. Read
the features list carefully. The MK2 has a lot of capability.
One of the biggest let downs with
processing gear is that it is rarely optimized for vintage sound sources. The
VSP MK2 is designed from the ground up to be a Vintage Signal
Front panel controls are laid out in basic
operational order. The Mono Mix control lets you balance the two sides of the
groovewall and find the best "mix".
The Optional Line In feature lets you use
the VSP in a tape loop and also lets you re-process tapes or discs that
were made with a modern stereo only. Selecting inverse RIAA undoes the modern
stereo's RIAA EQ and lets you start fresh with a "Flat" input; Almost as if you
had the original recordings again.
A great replacement for that tired Owl-1 and Owl Multifilter; benchmarks in their time but now long out of date.
