The Dangerous 2-Bus+ is a 16-channel analogue summing mixer designed from the ground up with innovative audio processors to add colour and musicality to a mix.
The Dangerous 2-Bus+ includes three processors called Harmonics, Paralimit and X-former which affect the summed signal differently. Harmonics as its name suggests is a tuned harmonic distortion generator which is routed in parallel and is set with a Blend to control the amount of processing applied. The Paralimit is a parallel FET limiter designed to add punch and life without affecting the natural dynamic of the signal. X-former engages a pair of custom transformers and lets you control how much saturation is the applied to the core.
Both the Harmonics and Paralimit can be routed to affect a pair of of Stems (Channel 13-14 and/or channel 15-16) or across the mixbuss while the Transformer is placed in the mixbus chain. Each of the effects can be controlled individually and the order between the Harmonics and Paralimit can be inverted via the Flip button.
Although the 2-Bus+ features powerful colour options, it remains at its heart a clean and expensive sound associated with the original 2-Bus, giving the user entire control over the colouration (or lack of) as an artistic choice rather than by default.
The 2-Bus+ features DB25 and XLR inputs. An external external loop allows to connect additional processors such as a mixbus compressor or EQ. Several 2-Bus+ can be linked together for increased channel count. When doing so the X-Former function is only available on the unit whose master outputare being used.
