The BC1-THD provides smooth bus compression that applies for both mixing and tracking.
Engineers call it “The Magic Glue” when the BC1-THD’s transparent compression strengthens mixes without compromising clarity.
The built-in blend control makes it easy to apply parallel compression by adjusting the blend of dry and compressed signal. A switchable sidechain filter can be applied which makes the BC1-THD less responsive to low frequency energy. The THD function adds more harmonics to the signal and the “grab” mode selects a harder threshold knee on all four ratio settings. Smooth and transparent compression will never go out of fashion.
“I own a BC1… awesome comp. My go-to bus comp. Kills everything else that I have tried. Thanks!”
John Kerns / Australia (No Doubt, INXS, Bruce Springsteen…)
“The TK BC1 has now become my first choice when I want compression on the stereo mix bus. I love the sound and really like the blend control.”
Terry Manning / Nassau, Bahamas (Shakira, Lenny Kravitz, Shania Twain, Norah Jones, Boz Scaggs…)
“I’ve been using the TK BC1 as my main drum compression on recent mixes I’ve done for Eric Clapton, Nikka Costa and Sheryl Crow. The mix control is the key. From letting the signal breathe or to slamming it to the wall it still allows the
original transients and character of the sound to be heard. It’s also a great stereo bus compressor. So now I need to buy another one! Another winner from Thomas Kristiansson.”
Justin Stanley / USA (Sheryl Crow, Eric Clapton, Beck, Nikka Costa, Mark Ronson, The Vines, Baby Animals…)
“Absolutely fantastic!!!!! Really punchy!!”
Jonas Quant / Sweden (Kylie Minogue, Hurts, Sophie Ellis-Bextor…)
“The BC1 is literally amazing! I am stunned… HUGE sound, so punchy, so gluey… anyway, I’m totally stoked. It is just what this mix needed :)”
Tre Sheppard, Onehundredhours / UK
“The BC1 is sensational!!!! BC1 is doing magic to kick and snare/clap inside a mix, without changing the character of the mix itself.”
Georg O Luksch, Home Music Studio / Vienna, Austria
“I used my new BC1-S for mixing and now I get the hype about it. I´ve tried using my other compressors but no one came even close to the BC1-S when using it on the masterbus. The sound got more bombastic and glued together. Big thanks for a magic box.”
Tobbe Karlsson, Boost Studio / Sweden
“Probably the greatest drum compressor I have heard! Gonna need to get some more I think!!”
Ben Hammond / UK (Saxon, Deaf Havana, Young Guns, The Veronicas…)
“I am the very proud owner of a BC-1. I love the unit and use it extensively live and in the studio”
Jonathan Gardner / Sydney, Australia (Empire Of The Sun, Jet… )
