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.
