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.

    I have a beautiful Yamaha C7 piano in my studio that I record often, and I've tried many different compressors on it, but they all have issues. The Precision Buss Compressor is the only plugin that I have found that will tame the dynamics of a performance on my piano without poorly affecting the ori … Read More

    Best Bus Compressor
    by A. Sutton (Saturday 21 September, 2013)

    I compared this to the SSL Bus Compressor and this is more transparent and maintains the quality of the audio better than the SSL. Try for yourself and see. If you want to hear a mix where this was used on the master, check out www.reverbnation.com/rialety. "Steppin Out" track. … Read More
