THE BUS +.... The Ultimate SSL Bus Compressor

Innovation + Dynamic Equalization 

THE BUS+ circuit design utilises high-grade components, including 2181 THAT VCAs for superior analogue performance, four modes of operation and 3 distinct compression colouration options which can be combined to perfectly suit the genre you’re working on. THE BUS+ also packs in sophisticated routing options and advanced processing tools: Dynamic Equaliser (D-EQ), Transient Expander and so much more…

Born on earlier successes SSL 4000B console in 1976 and through many generations of SSL consoles that have followed, the Bus Compressor has always been the stalwart of the console center section. For many of the world’s top engineers and producers, the Bus Compressor continues to be the most relied upon processing tool for making mixes sound bigger and more complete, with drive and energy from adding that legendary SSL glue and punch.

Dynamic Analogue Equaliser: D-EQ
THE BUS+ incorporates a host of advanced processing tools including the new Dynamic Analogue Equaliser (D-EQ). The D-EQ is a powerful 2-band Dynamic EQ that can be placed before or after The Bus Compressor. Many engineers are familiar with Dynamic EQ plug-ins inside the DAW but analogue Dynamic EQs are few and far between. A Dynamic EQ is a more 'intelligent' form of EQ that changes the gain of an EQ band proportionally in response to the signal level once above a set threshold. It allows you to modify the contrast between background material (under threshold) and forward material (above threshold).

Main features:

  • Packs 5 decades of SSL Bus Comp tech into a convenient rackmount unit
  • Contains 100% analog circuitry, with stepped, digitally controlled front-panel pots
  • 2 channels with 4 modes of operation: Classic Stereo, Σ S/C Stereo, Dual Mono, or Mid-Side
  • Authentic SSL Bus Compressor circuit with high-performance 2181 THAT VCAs
  • Multiple compression modes based on the XLogic, early 4K, and more supplies maximum sonic flexibility
  • Negative compression ratios give rise to creative pumping effects
  • Attack and Release time constant options, plus an Auto 2 setting, unlock added versatility
  • 2 ranges of precision MDAC-controlled make-up gain
  • Variable sidechain highpass filter makes tailoring the compressor's behavior a piece of cake
  • Mix control supplies dead-simple parallel compression
  • Super-accurate moving-coil gain-reduction meters
  • Includes an unlockable Transient Expander bonus mode
  • 2-band, parallel dynamic D-EQ includes LF and HF bands
  • 16 selectable frequency points per band gives you plenty of sound-shaping options
  • Includes both Compress and Expand modes
  • 3 choices of time constants for each EQ band: Nominal, Fast, or Auto
  • Each EQ band boasts a 0.5dB–15dB adjustable range
  • HF band can be switched to a bell shape, with selectable frequencies covering high-midrange and high frequencies
  • G-Series mode changes the LF filter to a second order with a degree of under and overshoot
  • Tri-color activity LEDs and individually bypassable EQ bands
  • External sidechain I/O allows you to trigger the compressor with an external signal
  • Configurable processing order ensures maximum flexibility
  • Sleep and auto-sleep modes
