With THE BUS+, Solid State Logic have been on a mission to create the ultimate and most versatile incarnation of the Bus Compressor ever. The bedrock of the design remains faithful to the original circuit and using this as the foundation, they’ve built upon it, adding several unique coloration options and advanced processing tools. If you need it to be clean and punchy like the SuperAnalogueTM 9000 Series version, it can be. If you need it to be gritty and grungy like an early 4000E, it can do that also. Or if you need over-the-top, saturated parallel compression for the drums, THE BUS+ has got you covered.

THE BUS+ circuit design not only utilises high-grade components, such as the 2181 THAT VCAs in the audio path for superior analogue performance, it is also incredibly flexible, offering four modes of operation and 3 distinct compression colouration options that can be combined to perfectly suit the genre you’re working on. As if that wasn’t enough, THE BUS+ features an all-new Dynamic Equaliser, a Transient Expander and comprehensive connectivity and routing options.

THE BUS+ is the ultimate SSL Bus Compressor.

Key features:

    •    The ultimate, most versatile incarnation of the Bus Compressor ever

    •    4 modes of operation - Classic Stereo, S/C Stereo, Dual Mono or Mid-Side.
    •    New Attack and Release time constant options - more flexibility to shape the Bus Compressor, including the new 'Auto 2' setting.

    •    4K Mode - single VCA operation with variable harmonic distortion to bring some 'grit' and 'grunge' to the mix.
