Key Features

  • Advanced Analog Summing Circuits: Designed by the legendary Chris Muth, these circuits provide legendary headroom and unique coloration options that enrich your mix with warmth and clarity.
  • Customizable Color Circuits: Two distinct circuits add desirable harmonic complexity to the lower midrange while maintaining crisp highs, perfect for invigorating sterile tracks.
  • Dynamic Harmonic Coherence: This feature progressively enhances the harmonic content of signals, allowing you to add excitement and depth to your mixes, particularly during crucial moments like hooks.
  • Exceptional Crosstalk and Noise Performance: Boasts an impressive crosstalk specification (-109dB at 1kHz), ensuring super wide stereo imaging and a pristine sound environment.
  • Robust Connectivity and Integration: Supports various digital inputs and outputs, allowing integration with modern digital workflows while maintaining analog integrity.
  • Scalable and Expandable: Compatible with other units in the Dangerous Music line, like the 2-BUS+, 2-BUS-XT, and D-BOX+, for comprehensive system integration.

Unveil Your Sound with Active Analog Summing

Unlike passive summing boxes, the active electronics in the 2-BUS-XT offer a vast, holographic soundstage with precise panning, deep reverbs, and articulate frequencies. By summing analog, you reduce the load on individual converters, enhancing their efficiency and allowing your mixes to breathe and shine in true analog fashion.

Emulation Impossible

Analog summing technology in the 2-BUS-XT provides clear sonic advantages that cannot be emulated digitally, ensuring that your music retains its depth, clarity, and dynamic expression, no matter the complexity of the project.
