The 500 Series Module Splice MKII Fet Compressor from Serpent Audio recreates the circuitry and sound of not one, but two classic FET compressors. The Splice-500 mode switching allows you to switch between the classic Blackface and vintage Bluestripe circuits at the push of a button.


In addition, the Splice-500 can also mix and match the two for entirely new sounds that can only be found with the Splice i.e. Blue Input Circuitry + Black Output Circuitry for Blueface mode or Black Input Circuitry + Blue Output Circuitry for Blackstripe mode.


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)
