Bus Driver 是一种光学压缩器，可提供广泛的压缩效果，让人想起 60 年代最好的老式压缩器。
压缩是那些经常被认为是理所当然并且通常没有充分发挥其潜力的工作室流程之一。今天的制作人认为在混音时在 DAW 的每个通道上都插入压缩器并不重要，但是老派工程师必须学会充分利用几个压缩单元，这使他们从里到外学习它们以充分利用它们. Bus Driver 以电子管压缩机“黄金时代”的经典为蓝本。
Bus Driver 中还包括一个 Tube-Driver 饱和功能。它允许您添加老式电子管放大器的声音，为您提供三极管、四极管和五极管真空管的不同电子特性。因此，您可以将那些经典电子管（例如 ECC83、12AX7 等）的复古温暖添加到您的轨道或混音总线上。
Nomad Factory 设计了一个输出级软削波，以消除任何输出电平的数字削波并产生更平滑的失真特性。此功能是对 Bus-Driver 中包含的 Tube-Driver Saturation Modeling 的补充。
Bus Driver is an optical compressor that provides a wide range of compression effects, reminiscent of the best vintage compressors made in the ‘60s.
Compression is one of those studio processes that is all too often taken for granted and not usually used to its full potential. Today’s producers think nothing of inserting compressors on every single channel of their DAW when mixing, but old school engineers had to learn to make the most of only a few units of compression and this made them learn them inside out to use them to their best advantage. Bus Driver is modelled on the classics from the ‘golden age’ of tube compressors.
Also included in Bus Driver is a Tube-Driver Saturation feature. It allows you to add the sound of a vintage tube amplifier giving you the differing electronic characteristics of triode, tetrode, and pentode vacuum tubes. So you can add the vintage warmth of the those models of the classic tubes (e.g. ECC83, 12AX7, etc..) to your tracks or on your mix bus.
Nomad Factory designed an Output Stage Soft-Clipping to eliminate digital clipping at any output level and produce a smoother distortion characteristic. This feature is in addition to the Tube-Driver Saturation Modeling included in Bus-Driver.
