NG500/500 Series stereo bus compressor with digital recall, USB connection and 100% analog signal path


First and most important point - _DIONE is 100% analog device with +24dBu of headroom. Regardless its digital control nature, fully analog signal path provides top VCA compression sound. Two THAT 2181 VCA in signal chain, and two in side chain detector!

Mix knob for parallel compression

With MIX knob at your disposal, parallel compression has never been simpler to achieve! With _DIONE your MIX setting can be automated in your DAW, ever wanted to push your compressor harder in chorus Nothing simpler! Just record automation using touch sensitive encoder, or draw your automation lines in DAW!

THD - Add colour to your mixes

THD stands for "Total harmonic distortion" and it allows to saturate your signal with beautiful analog color.

Side chain filters

_DIONE Side chain filter functionality allows to modify signal going into the compressor's detector. It includes 3 high pass filters at 60,90 and 150 Hz, and 2 tilt filters which are special "curve" designed filters.

Four ratio settings

_DIONE provides selectable ratios of 1.5:1 and 2:1 for gentle mixbus processing, and 4:1 and 10:1 for large variety of applications

500 Series and ng500 Series compatible

Regardless its extensions, _DIONE is fully compatible unit with 500 series standard (*). Digital features can be enabled through front panel mini USB socket. ng500 - Next Generation 500 series is a physical extension to 500 series, which makes _DIONE fully compatible with _TITAN frame - this allows to control all devices in chassis through one USB/Ethernet cable.

Hardware A/B

Even using _DIONE as pure analog signal processor you can easily switch between two parallel settings with a magic of a simple buttons.
