Buzz Audio Essence

500 Series Opto-Compressor  
 
The essence is a True Class A Optical Compressor designed to fit the API* 500 VPR Series rack  frames offering a great feature set in a compact package. The essence will find application with  those seeking a musically transperant compressor for all tracking and mixing tasks, and it  sounds particulary outstanding when processing voice and bass tracks.  
 
The essence control circuit design is based on the Buzz Audio SOC-1.1 Stereo Optical Compressor but  the main audio path utilises our BE40 and BE50 True Class A amplifiers along with high spec Lundahl  input and output transformers. The input transformer is directly coupled to the Buzz proprietary  Opto gain reduction element (completely passive input), amplified and then balanced via the output  transformer - a very simple but gutsy signal path!
