What Is The Townhouse Bus Compressor?
The original Townhouse bus compressor has an interesting back story. If you want to know the detail check out our news story from when it was released in July 2018. It was built as a bespoke compressor for Townhouse Studio 1 which was equipped with a Helios desk because the engineers wanted access to the bus compressor from the newly acquired SSL series B in studio 2. Built using a combination of parts from SSL and off the shelf parts, the Townhouse compressor was similar but not the same as an SSL bus compressor and these similarities and differences have been accurately captured by the Brainworx team.
