WesAudio DIONE Analog BUS Compressor with Digital Recall
Legendary sound of Stereo Bus compressor has been true companion on countless recordings since 40 years. Often recognized as “mixbus glue”, this particular compression sound have become industry standard. We present _DIONE – fully analog, legendary VCA compressor with digital recall.
VCA THAT 2181
Two THAT 2181 VCA in signal chain, and two in side chain detector!
MIX KNOB FOR PARALLEL COMPRESSION
With _DIONE your MIX setting can be automated in your DAW, ever wanted to push your compressor harder in chorus? Nothing simpler! Just record automation using touch sensitive encoder, or draw your automation lines in DAW!
|THD – ADD COLOR TO YOUR MIXES
THD stands for “Total harmonic distortion” and it allows to saturate your signal with beautiful analog color.
SFOUR RATIOS SETTINGS
500 SERIES and ng500 SERIES COMPATIBLE
ng500 – Next Generation 500 series is a physical extension to 500 series, which makes _DIONE fully compatible with _TITAN frame – this allows to control all devices in chassis through one USB/Ethernet cable.
Even using _DIONE as pure analog signal processor you can easily switch between two parallel settings with a magic of a simple buttons.
TOTAL RECALL AND PLUGIN CONTROL
Full plugin control through VST2/VST3/AU/AAX/AAX DSP – makes _DIONE compatible with most, if not all major DAWs.
Total integration with your beloved DAW will change your workflow forever!
And remember, you can use three touch sensitive encoders to record automation TO your DAW!
