TransAudio Group, U.S. distributor of high-end professional recording equipment, will introduce Bettermaker’s newest creation, the Bettermaker Bus Compressor, at NAMM 2019. Like the 2019 TEC Award-nominated Bettermaker Mastering Equalizer and the rest of the Bettermaker product line, the Bus Compressor combines a pristine stereo analog signal path (newsworthy in its own right!) with digital recall and parameter control, and/or automation from a cross-platform plug-in.
In other words, Bettermaker users get all of the unmatched sonics of a boutique analog signal path with all of the convenience of a plug-in. The mastermind behind Bettermaker, Marek Walaszek, will be at the TransAudio Group NAMM Booth #14914 to talk shop with other passionate audio professionals and enthusiasts.
“The Bettermaker Bus Compressor is designed for critical tracking, mixing, and mastering work,” Walaszek explained. “Think of it as an awesome stereo analog compressor first and foremost, one that’s in league with all of the most revered manufacturers in the industry. Then add complete digital control of all parameters for instant recall from the front panel and recall and automation from our Bettermaker plug-in. That’s the Bettermaker template, and the new Bus Compressor adds a twist: modularity. Besides the basic compression parameters like attack, release, threshold, ratio, etc., the Bus Compressor can be upgraded via expansion packs to perform more specialized functions like M/S, dry/wet mixing, high-pass sidechain filtering, different compressor modeling modes, and more. We’ll have a unit on hand at NAMM for people to check out, and we’ll have units ready to sell by the second quarter of 2019. And we will price the Bettermaker Bus Compressor competitively!”
