The Dangerous Music 2-BUS+ Analog Summing Mixer is a groundbreaking piece of audio equipment that surpasses its predecessor, the original 2-BUS. It redefines mixing by offering not only an enhanced analog summing circuit but also three innovative custom color circuits: Harmonics, Paralimit, and X-Former.
Redesigned Analog Summing:
The 2-BUS+ features a redesigned analog summing circuit that exceeds previous specifications. This results in unsurpassed imaging, dimensionality, punch, and headroom.
Three Custom Color Circuits:
Adds euphoric odd- and even-order distortion to the mix, creating a unique analog edge. It can be applied to the whole mix or individual channel pairs, running parallel to the unprocessed signal.
A FET limiter inspired by the famous 1176 "all buttons in" trick. Offers infinite ratio setting flooded with analog top-end, providing instant parallel compression in stereo for the full mix or stereo stems.
Incorporates a pair of custom-loaded Cinemag transformers with a unique approach to driving the core. Delivers the classic analog console color, and the X-Former knob allows control over the amount.
Effortless Routing and Blending:
The user interface allows easy routing and blending of the analog color circuits, providing a vast array of tonal options. The stereo analog insert is switchable for seamless outboard gear integration.
Crystal Clear Sonic Imaging:
The 2-BUS+ delivers crystal clear sonic imaging, three-dimensionality, and endless headroom, enhancing the overall quality of the mix.
Flexible Parallel Processing:
Harmonics and Paralimit can be assigned to the whole mix or individual channel pairs. The patching order can be instantly flipped, and blending with the original signal is easily achieved.
Switchable Stereo Analog Insert:
Allows integration of outboard processors, adding to the flexibility of parallel processing.
Stepped Output Gain Control:
Enables precise recalls for consistent results in subsequent sessions.
XLR and D-Sub Input Connectivity:
Offers both XLR and D-Sub input options for versatile connectivity.
The 2-BUS+ is built with high-quality components throughout, ensuring exceptional audio performance.
Hand-Assembled in the USA:
The unit is hand-assembled in the USA, reflecting a commitment to craftsmanship and quality.
Analog equipment like the 2-BUS+ is considered a long-term investment due to its reliability and timeless appeal. It remains relevant and compatible with various systems over decades.
In summary, the Dangerous Music 2-BUS+ combines advanced analog summing capabilities with innovative color circuits, providing audio professionals with a versatile and powerful tool for enhancing the mixing process.
