JST Bus Glue Series

About Bus Glue

Bus Glue is a series of Bus Compressors designed to excel at controlling the dynamics of specified mix bus groups in a mix using a variety of compression and saturation types combined with over a decade of mixing knowledge and lots of practical field testing across several genres of music.

The goal was to come up with a set of compressors that could do something other compressors weren’t made to do. Most compressor designs are too broad in application and that is why you typically need to stack compressors or insert other processors in your bus chain to achieve desired results.

However, Bus Glue compressors are about as specific as you can get by design, but that’s what makes them so useful. By using Bus Glue as your dynamic control across your various mix busses, you’ll expand your dynamic palette while crafting a whole new sound that is unrivaled by other compression processors.

My Pet Martyr

It is now a part of my collection. I have the bass, guitar, vox, and now the mix! I am very satisfied with them all!

Like it

easy to use. If you like the sound of this plug-in, then just turn the knob:)

Paul Canz
Bus comping it

This is a nice subtle to mildly pumping
Balance for your mix bus and possibly any aux bus , low CPU usage add EQ and other stuff you like to chain later when mixing

James brown
BG Mix you need this

Does 100% of what it says it does the clip button is a nice touch.

The secret sauce to my mixes.

BG-Mix replaced my old mix bus compressor because it did what my other mix compressor did, but BETTER. The plugin is seriously simple to use, and the Approach knob is the best because it has more than one compression style, saving you from wasting time trying out other plugins and pulling you from the creative part of mixing.
