Wes Audio _DIONE 

The Wes Audio _Dione is an analog stereo bus compressor that's been featured on many recordings over the last 40 years. One of the most noted features of this compressor is its +24dB of headroom due to its analog circuitry, and its fully analog signal path provides you with great VCA compression. This 500 series unit has a rugged easy to adjust mix knob at your disposal so you can get your mix as "wet" or "dry" as you like with ease. If you are look for a way to add colour to your mix you can use the THD (total harmonic distortion) button allowing it to saturate your signal with amazing sounding analog colour. With many more features like side chain filters, four ratio settings, and total recall/plugin controle it's outboard unit is a perfect addition to any studio.
