Warm Audio stereo VCA BUS-COMP

Posted on: Sunday 19th of January 2020

The Warm Audio BUS-COMP is an all-analogue, 2-channel, stereo VCA compressor “based on classic circuitry that has provided silky smooth tone for decades”.  I think we know what they mean – it’s the silky-smooth-legendary ‘glue’ in an affordable 19″-rack recreation.

 

One feature Warm have added to the original design is the ability to have USA made CineMag transformers inserted into the signal path driven by fully discrete operational amplifiers.
