Standard Audio announces the release of the Level-Or Mk2 Dual, a rackmount, dual-channel, analog dynamics and harmonic distortion processor. Established in 2008, Standard Audio is best known for their unique 500 Series modules that nod to obscure 70s topologies with a cult-classic status. "Our first two products, Level-Or and Stretch, were inspired by engineers using their existing gear in new and creative ways. In that spirit, we tried to enhance the creative possibilities with added functions, ease of use and a practical, dependable format,” said Thom Flowers, co-founder and Head of Product Development at Standard Audio.

The Level-Or Mk2 Dual takes the circuit of the popular Level-Or Mk2 500 Series module and incorporates new features such as a Mix control, and a Cascade function that allows users to employ the Level and Crunch modes in series on a mono signal. “When we started Standard Audio, the modular format of the 500 series made it easier for our small company to get our ideas & designs out into the world. We've long wanted to bring our product line to the 19" rack format as it allows us to add more features and opens up a new pool of engineers that may not be committed to the 500 series format,” said Standard Audio co-founder and Chief Product Designer Ian MacGregor.

Shipping in third quarter of 2022 with an estimated street price of $1850USD, the Standard Audio Level-Or Mk2 Dual makes its official debut at the 2022 NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, June 3-5. Standard Audio will be exhibiting in the M1 Distribution booth #15914 located in ACC North Level 1.
