The VariMu has become a standard found in almost every mastering studio. With it, it is very easy to improve the musical binding of a mix. The VariMu is not a brutal loudspeaker, but a device of the gentler kind for the fine compression of the mix, while the basses remain firm and the trebles open and silky. Musical structures are easier to follow after processing and the mix gains in intensity. Even mixes often heard today, which suffer from digititis due to mediocre converters and plug-ins, lose their nervousness and the music becomes more flowing and pleasant. That's why the VariMu is also an ideal device for purely digital studios. In addition to the standard version, there is a mastering version with stepped knobs, behind which there are fixed 1% metal film resistors instead of potentiometers. In addition, the signal runs through encapsulated gold-contact switches. Input and output level controls are adjustable in fixed steps.
