Overview

Precision Buss Compressor Plug-In

Original UA Design Dual-VCA-Type Dynamic Processor for Transparent Gain Reduction

The Precision Buss Compressor is a dual-VCA-type dynamic processor that yields modern, transparent gain reduction characteristics. It is specifically designed to “glue” mix elements together for that cohesive and polished sound typical of master section console compressors. A flexible and intuitive tool, the Precision Buss Compressor is intended primarily for controlling the final output of your mix, but can be usefully applied to a variety of sources from drum busses or overheads to vocal groups, or even as a channel compressor on individual track inserts.

The Precision Buss Compressor’s control set features Threshold, Ratio, Attack and Release, with all parameters specifically tailored to buss compressor usage. The Release control includes a multi-stage Auto Release also designed for a wide variety of program material. Input and Output Gain control is offered with metering for input, output and gain reduction. A high pass Filter is offered to reduce the sensitivity of the compression to lower frequencies while retaining them in the output signal. An automatic Fade feature is included, which allows the user to set a custom fade-out or fade-in of the mix between 1 and 60 seconds long. Rounding out the feature set is a Mix control that allows the user to achieve "parallel" style dynamics control, without the need for a second buss or channel.

    Buss is Boss!!!
    by U. Kim(Wednesday 13 July, 2016)

    New surgeon for my busses. That's TIGHT!!! Right Now I'm dreaming about Neve 33609 (be sure to buy soon), but this one saving my mixes really cool! On some buses tires works better than other members of the dynamics family. Read More

    Precision Buss Compressor
    by W. Brierre(Tuesday 14 June, 2016)

    Fantastic and musical stereo compressor. Great for the stereo buss and a perfect alternative to the SSL stereo buss compressor. The cool difference is that the Precision Buss Compressor has a filter on it so you can compress your mix without crush the bottom end. A necessary mix tool. Read More

    Flexible and largely transparent compressor
    by J. Cohn(Thursday 19 May, 2016)

    I have enjoyed lots of good uses for this compressor: Firstly, its fairly transparent and doesnt colour in its compression, so its reliable to just tuck transients or as people say 'glue' elements better together. Perhaps more importantly, I love the release flexibility on it. Because… Read More

    Really good
    by . (Monday 14 March, 2016)

    I like this one. It doesn't add much (if not: any) color to the sound, it just compresses in a very accurate but musical way. I use it for subtle compression on sums and the master but also on single signals if i just want to reduce dynamics and nothing else. No cons. Read More
