New Zealand-based manufacturer Buzz Audio’s new DBC-M compressor is a version of the DBC-20 diode bridge compressor with a diode bridge gain reduction element coupled with a side chain design. According to Buzz Audio, it “delivers a vintage vibe like no other,” that’s perfect for mastering and bus compression. The DBC-M audio path uses Class A discrete amplifier designs with a circuit that’s balanced from input to output. A radio steel laminated transformer adds extra colour, with the overall compression characteristic being described as “tight, colourful, and rich with harmonics.” The DBC-M has a self-adjusting ratio where the compression amount increases with deepening gain reduction. The big 24-position stepped knobs make repeatability easy, and ‘Soft’ provides a different flavour where dynamic peaks are partially retained. A red LED bar graph displays gain reduction.
