The Serpent Audio Splice 500 MKII 500-Series Compressor pack many of the same features, functions, and character that it's big brother (the Standalone Splice MKII) offers, and impressively proves that size does not matter. This powerful 500 series compressor is based on four unique, and loved, classic FET circuits.

The Serpent Audio Splice MKII SA-76 500-Series Compressor packs all of the sound and functionality of the acclaimed Splice MKII rack into a single 500 series module. Faithfully recreating the circuitry and sound of not one, but two classic FET compressors, the Splice-500’s unique mode switching allows the user to switch between the classic Blackface or 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.

The SPLICE-500 MKII can be stereo linked with a second unit for stereo applications using the supplied cable. To connect two SPLICE-500 MKII units together, connect the supplied cable from J202 on unit “A” to J202 on unit “B”. The link wire can be secured in the wire hook on the PCB. Stereo mode is enabled by placing the “Link” toggle switch on both units to the up position.

What We Think


The Serpent Audio Splice 500 MKII 500-Series Compressor is extremely impressive in the fact that it capture the same sonic tone of it big brother (the rackmount Splice MKII), and offers many of the same features - all in the compact 500 format. This makes owning multiple channels of it much easier, and takes up significantly less space. While it gives you the familiar tone of the classic FET comp sound we all love and rely on, the Splice 500 MKII is the perfect FET comp for tracking and mixing, and can handle it all. Guitars, bass, vocals, drums, the Splice just does it right. Get a pair of them and link them for stereo buss applications! You drums will have never sounded better!
