On/Bypass

The On/Bypass switch activates (On)
or deactivates (Bypass) the module.
This allows you to quickly switch between
processed and unprocessed signal.

“BiG is a really special device that you just have to have… there’s nothing else like it on the market.”

Signal LEDs

The signal LEDs (Sig) indicate whether an audio signal is present at the input of the respective channel.
(With a level higher than -20 dBu)

Stereo Image Shaping

Range

With the Range control, the frequency Range which should be processed can be selected.

“SPL has created a truly unique product with the BiG. I can’t think of another piece of gear that does what BiG does, so congrats to SPL for not trying to reinvent another audio wheel, but instead choosing always to push forward!”

Stage

With the Stage control, the frequency range previously selected with the Range control can be moved backwards or forwards on the stereo stage.

BIGNESS

The huge BIGNESS
control adjusts the intensity of the
STEREO IMAGE SHAPING.

“Highly recommended. I love it!”

The BASS/Off switch can be used to
activate (BASS) or deactivate (Off) an
additional bass boost following the
BIGNESS section.
The bass boost is performed by a passive filter implemented in a similar circuit to
the one used in the AirBass function of
the SPL IRON Mastering Compressor.

Black magic?

In BiG a difference signal derived from the input signal is processed by an analog filter network before mixed back to the original signal in a special mixing stage. This is not M/S processing but a completely different and new way of stereo-processing. The processed stereo signal, when summed to mono, creates a clean mono signal without phase shifts, cancellations, or other unwanted artifacts.

Sounds good

With all SPL devices we develop not only according to plan, but also by ear.
All important components are installed on the circuit boards using Through-hole technology. This way we can ensure that we can use the best sounding components.
