Pete’s Place BAC-500
FET compressor lets you upgrade your 500 Series rack with a versatile range of warm, vintage-style tone.
Pete’s Place Audio is taking advantage of the 125th AES Convention in San Francisco to introduce another exciting product to its lineup, a 500 Series compressor module known as the BAC.
Designed by Brad Avenson of Austin, Texas-based Avenson Audio, the BAC—short for Brad Avenson Compressor—is a feedback-style FET compressor built around two discrete op amps and a custom wound output transformer.
“We are thrilled to finally be collaborating with Brad on this project,” says Pete’s Place Audio President Lisa Montessi. “His experience, knowledge and passion really shine through in everything he creates and the BAC certainly is no exception. It’s a fantastic compressor and it’s going to make a lot of 500 Series fans very happy.”
From the top down, the BAC’s faceplate features a large silver rotary input knob, smaller pots for attack, release and ratio, and a large output knob at the bottom. Additional features include a three-position sidechain contour switch, eight-LED gain reduction meter, and pushbuttons for distortion and bypass.
