Great Bus compressor for punchy kick. I like to use it on instruments just for color. Perfect for drum bus
Best SSL Comp Out there
I love this comp! I got it mostly on a whim, but since then I have had it on my 2buss for almost every mix. It has a way of adding a cohesion to the track that’s really nice, and it seems to come from the saturation and the compression together. This isn’t the cleanest or most transparent compressor, but the color adds to the uniqueness of it and to its gluing capabilities. Highly recommended!!
I've had this Compressor for a couple of months now and it's a wonderful plugin. Like most you go through a number of processing both Hardware & Software looking for tools to help with a natural "Feel" to the music. I primarily use this compressor on the Master Bus as an overall along with a limiter to tame the level. I do a lot of production "In the Box" amazing plugin, sounds great!
Love the sound / colour of its gain tone. Simplicity in controls (as per its original), and a decent GR meter (not merely a VU). Punchy tone for parallel use. Please just lose the virtual screws and rack ears.
BX Townhouse is a must have

This compressor goes fucking dummy . Could not recommend enough.
Amazing glue for a stereo bus
Although I've been a session musician and recording engineer for years, I've only started my mixing journey in the last year. That said, I have to say that this is a really amazing bus compressor. I've had a chance to compare it to a number of similar plugins (SSL Native bus comp, Native Instruments Solid Bus comp, Waves SSL bus comp) and this one is easily my favorite. It does an amazing job of pulling all the elements together and making the mix sound more like a polished track.
bx_Townhouse Buss Compressor
After seeing Darrell Thorp recommend this as his go to Buss Compressor I checked out the demo against my regular UAD Neve 33609. The Townhouse gives me the same subtle control as the 33609, but reacts in a more musical way to certain instruments that really surprised me, especially using the Side Chain mix control. Besides how well it sounds I love the simplicity of it's layout which really lends to a set it and move on approach to Buss Mixes. Definitely a 5 star Plugin.
Love the QOL features :)
Fantastic sounding comp, made even better by the inclusion of a highpass filter and external sidechaining - being able to, for example, key in the kick to control the 2bus' gain reduction is massively useful. :) Doesn't tend to pump like some of the other comps I have, either - very nice, natural sounding piece of kit.
