Overview

With a redesigned analog summing circuit that exceeds previous specifications, the 2-BUS+ delivers unsurpassed imaging, dimensionality, punch and headroom. While the 2-BUS+ active summing sounds incredible on its own, it now includes three custom color circuits that provide a vast array of flexibly routed tonal options.

With its straightforward buttons and knobs, the 2-BUS+ puts endless combinations of robust analog sound at your fingertips. Brilliantly designed by the Chris Muth, the 2-BUS+ embodies a dedication to deliver the very best analog products available.

Active Analog Summing
When multiple converters share the workload of getting your sounds from digital into analog, you’ll hear improved articulation and clarity across your mix. Once in the analog realm, these individual channels are electronically summed together with what’s called an “active analog summing circuit.” Unlike passive summing boxes that require huge amounts of make-up gain to restore the lost audio, or line mixers masquerading as “summing mixers,” the active electronics in the 2-BUS+ result in a huge soundstage and audible three-dimensionality. Panning is wide and precise, reverbs spacious and deep, bass powerful and engaging, treble and mids articulate and interesting. The 2-BUS+ unveils all the details that bring your creations to life.

The Three Analog Tone Circuits

When it comes to adding analog color to your mixes, the design team at Dangerous has developed three all-analog circuits: Harmonics, Paralimit and X-Former. Because these circuits are built into the 2-BUS+, you get a versatile selection of analog colors while never leaving the lush, open analog mixing environment.

Harmonics – Add the euphoric sound of an analog circuit on the edge of distortion to your whole mix, or to individual channel pairs. Carefully tuned to generate the perfect mixture of odd- and even-order harmonics, this effect runs parallel with the unprocessed signal so you can dial in just the right amount of tone. The top end subtly simmers, the bass gently growls, and the whole sonic image warms up in ways that only a real analog circuit can offer.

Paralimit – This is a FET Limiter set to stun. An original Chris Muth design inspired by the famous 1176 Limiting Amplifier “all buttons in” trick, you get an infinite ratio setting flooded with analog top-end. With its blend knob and assignment buttons, Paralimit gives you instant parallel compression, in stereo, in the analog domain, on the full mix or on a stereo stem – a flexible set-up that otherwise requires complex patching, careful level matching and significant amounts of analog outboard gear.

X-former – Last in line are a pair of customized Cinemag transformers with Chris Muth’s totally unique approach to driving the core. Switch them in for the solid, punchy sound that makes older analog consoles so loved, then turn up the X-Former knob to drive the core of the transformer in a way that’s totally unique to the 2-BUS+. X-former is all about dialing in just the right amount of classic analog console color whenever it’s called for.

Analog Parallel Processing
Because you can effortlessly assign Harmonics and Paralimit to the whole mix or to individual channel pairs, instantly flip their patching order, and blend them in with the original signal at the twist of a knob, the 2-BUS+ provides incredibly flexible parallel processing without any outboard gear or fussy patching. With the ability to switch in the on-board customized Cinemag transformers, as well as any outboard processors you like on the switchable stereo insert, you’ve got nearly limitless options all accessed from the uncluttered front panel. Whether you choose to run it pure and clean, blend in just a hint of delicious analog flavor, or push it into the red-zone, Dangerous Audio puts the choice back in your hands when mixing.
