Plugin Alliance Release The Lindell Audio SBC Bus Compressor

Plugin Alliance have released the Lindell Audio SBC Bus Compressor which is available at the intro price of $129.99, increasing to S299.00 after the promotion. Use code LINDELL-10499 to reduce the price further, to $104.99. The SBC is also available in the Mega and Mix & Master (subscription) Bundle and in Forever 29.

The SBC is a faithful emulation of the classic analog buss compressor, with added features such as NUKE hyper-compression and THD®. The initial release consists of a thorough emulation of the wide and punchy stereo version and an even more versatile multi-band version which is planned to arrive in the Fall of 2022 as a FREE upgrade.

The original American hardware compressor is one of the most popular stereo buss compressors of all time, and for a good reason. Transparent yet assertive, smooth yet punchy, it’s a perennial favorite on drums, mix bus, vocals, and any source that demands aggressive compression without compromises. The SBC plugin from Lindell Audio emulates this legendary classic with masterful precision and clarity, adding new features that can only be found in the digital domain.

This style of VCA compressor is easily one of the top two choices for analog Mix Buss compression in modern music production—right alongside the very best buss compressors from SSL. Like the original hardware, Lindell’s SBC (Stereo Buss Compressor) plugin offers tremendous tone and flexibility, and includes a series of carefully curated filters and knee options that make it a perfect choice for adding that last bit of extra “glue” and polish to the entire mix.

The SBC shines on more than just mix buss material. This compressor is an absolute MUST on live drum busses, particularly in rock and metal genres, where it provides a tight, punchy, warm and “in-your-face” sound. Try Lindell’s added “NUKE” feature for extra crush on snare drum and room tracks, and don’t neglect this compressor whenever heavy-but-clean compression is needed on vocals and more.

The original compressors included a couple of seemingly subtle features that played an outsized role in its success. A special sidechain filter circuit applies a low cut and a high boost to the compressor’s detector circuit, ensuring it will respond to the most important parts of the mix, which so many other compressors ignore. A “feedforward” and “feedback” option allow for more modern or vintage style operation, while a variable stereo link control lets mixers decide exactly how much the left and right channels should interact with each other.

While the SBC will shine on any genre, it’s a must-have tool for rock mixers looking to add some upfront and aggressive character to their main mix, subgroups and select individual tracks.This is the sound you’ve heard on countless of your favorite modern rock releases for the past two decades. It is the analog buss compressor for the 21st century, now 100% ITB.

Features included:

  • Inspired by the legendary API® 2500 compressor
  • Unique filter section provides the option of low cut and high boost for precisely targeted compression
  • Variable link between left and right channels
