DontCrack has announced that is offering for free Bus Driver, a vintage optical compressor plugin by Nomad Factory.
Bus Driver is an optical compressor effect plugin for Windows and Mac, that provides a wide range of compression effects, reminiscent of the best vintage compressors made in the ‘60s.
Bus Driver has a Tube-Driver Saturation feature, allowing you to add the sound of a vintage tube amplifier giving you the differing electronic characteristics of triode, tetrode, and pentode vacuum tubes. Meaning you can add the vintage warmth of the those models of the classic tubes (e.g. ECC83, 12AX7, etc..) to your tracks or on your mix bus.
To eliminate digital clipping at any output level and produce a smoother distortion characteristic, Nomad Factory has designed an Output Stage Soft-Clipping – an addition to the Tube-Driver Saturation Modeling included in Bus-Driver.
Bus Driver is available for free download (limited time offer) in gratitude to the audio community for the help Bernie Torelli received in his fight against cancer. Sadly, Bernie passed away January 18th, 2016…
