NAMM 2023Softube release Bus Processor


Softube have announced the release of Bus Processor, drawing on a classic, large-format console bus compressor from the 1980s. The dynamics section gives you control of clean or musically-colored sound and gain reduction behaviour. Control the behaviour of the gain reduction with the sidechain section, and glue things together with sustained clarity.

A saturation section that includes an emphasis filter, can be set pre- or post-compression. Spatialization with an air filter, stereo widening, a mono bass filter, is also available.

They say:

We've received a lot of requests for a bus compressor over the years. Whether we would make one wasn't up for debate. To make one that offers something extra for the modern producer, one that we would want to use ourselves, was essential.

It took some time, but with ultramodern algorithmic compression in a classic compressor style, saturation, sidechain, spatialization, and more, we think you will agree that some things are worth the wait. This is Bus Processor.


  • A modern bus compressor and saturator that glues your mix together.
  • Takes sounds from clean to colorful without the loss of clarity.
  • Provides finish and polish even with conservative settings.
  • For use on all bus processing—from stem buses to the mix bus.
  • Featuring compression, saturation, sidechain, spatialization with an air filter, stereo widening, a mono bass filter, and more.
  • Total control of complex processes and advanced features with an intuitive, easy-to-use layout.
  • In Console 1, use the compressor in the compressor section and the saturator in the output drive section.

Bus Processor is available from Softube for an intro offer of $99 ($149).
