Warm Audio BUS-COMP 2 Channel VCA


Warm Audio is proud to bring this boutique quality, classic VCA compressor to the market at a quality-to-price ratio previously unseen. More studios than ever before will now have access to analogue quality VCA compression. All musicians should be heard the way they want to be heard, and the BUS-COMP is the perfect tool to perfect any mix!

This all analogue, 2-channel, stereo VCA compressor is based on classic circuitry that has provided a silky-smooth tone on countless hit records. Stereo VCA compressors are masterful at controlling dynamics on many sources, but they have become widely known for their magic touch on stereo mixes.

 

Main Features

The BUS-COMP will perform well on stereo mixes, drum mixes, drum overheads, acoustic guitars, keyboards, piano, orchestral instruments, voice-overs and an array of other sources. It excels at glueing together stereo mixes and adding punch to overheads and room microphones. Although primarily designed for stereo use, it can be used just as successfully on individual mono sources. VCA compressors of this type have become widely loved for their ability to control dynamics effortlessly but also for the added tone and depth they provide to the audio signal that passes through them, even when no compression is applied.

Re-creating legendary VCA compressor technology was the focus of the BUS-COMP's design, however, adding options and improvements was just as important during its development. One feature WA is proud to boast of is the BUS-COMP's ability to have the USA-made CineMag transformers inserted into the signal path driven by fully discrete operational amplifiers. With a single push of a front panel switch, these custom USA-made transformers are inserted into the audio's path providing increased depth, tone and vibe!
