    Does anyone know the differences between the Sonic Maximizer 422 and the 482? Will the 422 do what a VDrummer needs?

    The 422 will be good enough. The 482 will have more headroom to boost the signal.
    I donít have the specs on the 422, but itís a good way start. The 882 is the higher end unit (for now) if you want to upgrade in the future.

    The 422 specs:

    Applications
    Pro and semi-pro sound reinforcement
    Multitrack studios
    Mobile DJ systems
    Cassette copies
    Nightclub sound systems
    Instrument racks for guitar, bass and keyboards

    Features
    2 channels of process for stereo or separate mono mixes
    5 segment LED output meters
    +18dBu headroom
    RCA and1/4" inputs and outputs
    Hardwire bypass
    Bypass switch for comparison of processed to unprocessed signal

    Specifications
    Frequency Response,
    Process Mode: Program controlled
    Bypass Mode: 10Hz to 50kHz, +/- 0.5dBu, 10dBu input
    Signal to Noise Ratio: 112dB Process IN
    THD, Process mode: less than 0.025% at 20-20kHz
    Bypass mode: less than 0.002% at 20-20kHz
    Maximum Output: +18dBu (may vary due to control settings)
    Input Impedance: 47K Ohms, unbalanced 1/4" phone jack or RCA jack.
    Output Impedance: 1K Ohms, unbalanced 1/4" phone jack or RCA jack.
    Sensitivity: -45dBu for maximum process
    Maximum Process: +12dBu boost at 5kHz, -10dBu input
    Lo Contour: +12dBu adjustment at 50Hz, -10dBu input

        Unfortunately I donít know about the 862 models. It might be an earlier model. The recent BBE catalog does not mention the 862 (it also does not mention any of their earlier models as well). I would recommend contacting them just to find out what is the 862 compatible with from their current models, or maybe they can steer you in a right direction.

          The 482 replaced the 462 and I suspect the 882 replaced the 862. The only difference between the 462 and 482 is a different color on the face plate, at least visually. The headroom of both is +18 dBu. The 882/862 has balanced outputs and headroom of +23dBu.

          I've never run out of headroom using the 462, either with the stereo output of the board or just with the TD 10. The BBe is the best bang-for-the-buck I've ever gotten.

          Hope this helps.
