  • fucking amazing

    by seb
    Yes it is. Really.
    All that was said before this review was true.
    And probably all that coming after was too.
    Big happy face when I try it on some mix, powerfull, effective, easy to use and to find with it what I need for my mix.
    Award of the plugin of the year :-)

  • The Who? The Magic Buss!

    by Finck von Finckenstein
    As we all know, a good compressor can make the difference between a mix that is okay and a mix that is perfect. I threw the bx_townhouse compressor at a few tracks and smiled. I used it on drums and library brass samples and it did its magic. The parallel compression feature is great to have on this one, as always. From subtle to pumpy, this comp does it all and more. And I love the autofade feature. It's not just a gimmick, it's really handy for creating organic fades. The shabby look of it is brilliant, keeps reminding you of the beauty of imperfection.

    by Perry
    Excellent compressor! great for Drum Overheads and many other stereo applications. Certainly gives me a nice compressor with a distinct sound
  • bx_townhouse bus comp

    by DC2Light
    Ok in the USA we call a buss a bus. Townhouse studio didn’t and I don’t care. They made a compressor that is very dear to my heart. Only the early SSL consoles/desks like I first used had the original gold VCAs in the master compressor section and it had less components as well. (these are all good things) The later G,J,K did not. That gold VCA does a VERY SPECIAL thing to the sound. Yes the newer SSL comps react in the same way they just don’t sound the same. They are cleaner, this ones more alternet reality but in a bigger way. This is the only plugin that reproduces the gold VCA SSL tone. You can hit it hard and it’s perfect. Just leave it on 4:1, 1, auto on your mix “bus” and smile.
    Is it perfect? No the knobs are too small so it looks like the original real one and also they call it a “buss” compressor. SMILE!
  • Fantastic Buss Comp

    by DJ Variant
    What a great Buss Compressor! Really clean but warm at the same time. Not to be missed!
  • P.A. did it again

    by ArnoldVígh (art-director, music-producer at SilverHillStudio, Budapest)
    I'm in love with all the SSL gears, and I use them every day. I have five pieces of 500 module E-series EQ, a DYN comp and a G-bus compressor with me. And no matter what kind of plugins I used in the past to replace these, I felt that something's still missing for me. But those days are gone. Now I have countless SSL channel-strips and limitless SSL possibilities on my in-the-box system. This is simply unbelievable!!!

    Nice, elegant old style SSL bus compression sounding plug in.
    Excellent warm frequency response.
    A must have.
    Expecting an alliance with GML and Manley :)
  • A real classic recreated

    by Vanryne Audio
    This is one brilliant plugin to have in your artillery of compressors. It oozes the character of the original Townhouse hardware!
    I've just used 4 instances of this plugin in a big band remix project, it's given the horn sections real punch and put some extra pizzazz on the recording (originally produced by Freddie Mercury!) Thank you Brainworx :D
