[NAMM] Pete's Place Audio BAC-500 Module
Pete's Place Audio is taking advantage of the NAMM Show this year to introduce another product to its lineup, a 500 Series compressor module known as the BAC-500.
Designed by Brad Avenson of Austin, Texas-based Avenson Audio, the BAC-500 is a feedback-style FET compressor built around two op amps and a custom wound output transformer.
From the top down, the BAC-500's faceplate features a large silver rotary input knob, smaller pots for attack, release and ratio, and a large output knob at the bottom. Additional features include a three-position sidechain contour switch, eight-LED gain reduction meter, and pushbuttons for distortion and bypass.
The module's attack control is said to run from fast to quite fast, while the release control is described as exhibiting a fairly wide range, enabling the compressor to go from "pumping, breathing fast" up to approximately a second and a half.
The BAC-500 is capable of delivering nearly 50 dB of gain, according to Pete's Place Audio.
Pete's Place Audio will be at NAMM stand #6290.
