The TK Audio BC1-S is a stereo buss compressor inspired by the legendary SSL G stereo buss compressor and is designed to provide smooth compression or “glue” to your mixes.

The TK Audio BC1-S takes the now legendary VCA stereo buss compression design and updates it with many useful appointments such additional 1.5:1 and HARD ratios providing really soft transparent compression or hard limiting. The TK Audio BC1-S brings cohesion and punch to your instruments, drum or master buss without compromising clarity even at high ratios; thanks to a built-in blend control which allows for parallel processing by simply adjust the amount of dry and compressed signal. A mute button is also included to mute the dry signal altogether.

The TK Audio BC1-S also features a switchable side-chain filter at 150Hz with a smooth 6dB/per octave slope ensuring a smoother compression with bass-heavy material and an external side-chain input to make the track pump to an external source. 
Already extremely popular, the TK Audio BC1 range has seen several updates and the BC1-S now features stepped controls for easy recall and a lower noise floor, making it suitable for mastering applications, providing punch and glue while remaining transparent. A bypass switch is now also included.
