News Audio Touch C-Buss

Audio Touch, a new french company, will debut at the Audio Days this week will the C-Buss MIDI-controllable compressor.

The C-Buss is an analog stereo compressor in 19" 1U rack format, which can be digitally controlled via MIDI. According to Paul Viguier and Patrice Valorge who designed the module, it reproduces the behavior of the SSL G4000, API 2500 and Neve 33609. 

The compressor offers XLR right/left inputs and outputs as well as XLR stereo inputs for external sidechain, MIDI In and Thru, the latter being designed to control the processor from a computer via the VST and RTAS plug-in (other plug-in formats will be available very soon).

You can control the input and output levels (5 LEDs) and GR level (10 LEDs), the attack between 0.01 and 30ms, the ratio from 1.5 and 10 + limiter mode, the release from 0.05 and 1.2s + auto mode and dry/wet signal mix (9 levels).

The C-Buss also features an Isosonic Dyness mode with three levels. The Dyness mode can be compared to the API “Thrust” but this time with variable levels and completed with a second filter called “Isosonic”, which is also variable according to the level of “Dyness” enabled. The Dyness can be describes as a sidechain that excludes the low-end from the compression detection circuit, while the Isosonic acts more like a boost on the mids compression circuit.

A Vintage mode changes the detection mode to “FeedForward” and adds a couple of transformers to the input circuit.

 

The compressor ships with a plug-in that allows for remote MIDI control of the unit from a computer. The GUI reproduces the rack but in 3U formats, and offers the same controls as the ones on the device. You’ll even find the same 4 mini toggle switches that allow for “numbering” the rack (default number is 1). It is then easier to sync the plug-in to the corresponding device number, for it is possible to chain up to 16 units with a single MIDI cable and drive/recall/automate them via a MIDI/USB interface (16 instances of the plug-in can be run on the computer). Audio Touch adds that other compatible devices will be available in the future.

Last, you can setup in the plug-in and store 22 presets to the internal memory and exchange them with other users.

If you live in Paris, you can discover the C-Buss at the Audio Days on October 25th and 26th.

The retail price of the first run of C-Buss is 2990€ incl. VAT, it could be adjusted in the future.
