The WesAudio _DIONE
Is essentially a mix bus compressor based on the iconic sound of a classic VCA bus compressor and this particular style of compression is one of the most widely copied in the Pro Audio industry.
Full recall and automation when used with NG500-compatible racks
While the WesAudio _DIONE compressor module will work with many standard 500 series racks, you'll be able to tap into advanced digital control when you load it into one of WesAudio's NG500-compatible racks, like their _TITAN series. NG500-compatible racks like the _TITAN allow for digital control over your modules, offering full session recall and supporting automation from your DAW. In a typical 500 series rack, just connect a USB cable directly to _DIONE for full recall capabilities.
Stellar sound quality with selectable harmonic distortion
The all-analogue _DIONE compressor module boasts a generous +24dBu of headroom — no sonic compromises here. And if you want to add a little something special to your audio on the way through, switch on _DIONE's THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) mode. With selectable Med and High modes, THD saturates your signal for added harmonic complexity.
Side-chain filters help prevent excessive compression
The _DIONE compressor offers three switchable highpass filters, extremely useful for preventing bass frequencies from triggering too much compression. The _DIONE is enjoyed by most serious mix engineers for stereo applications like drum overheads — the side-chain filter allows the sharp snare and cymbal sounds to trigger compression, while preventing the kick drum from overly-triggering the compressor and crushing everything. There are also two special "tilt" filters with unique curves — with all these filter options, you'll be able to ensure loud bass hits don't cause your mix to implode.
