WesAudio _DIONE 500-Series Compressor

The WesAudio _DIONE is second product in new generation 500 series line created by WesAudio.

It implements famous bus compressor design made with best components available on the market. Unit is fully compatible with GCon protocol which allows complete parameters management over USB or through open specification 500 series frame _TITAN. Besides its vintage and transparent nature, unit itself implements many modern features which brings extreme flexibility to shape your sound like parallel compression or configurable harmonic distortion.

ng500 Next generation 500 series hardware extension to 500 series which allows to manage and recall settings of the modules from external source.

Note about 500 series extension in modules:
Each WesAudio device in ng500 (Next Generation 500 series) product line is equipped with special connector. This connector is an extension to 500 series, and allows your device to be managed/recalled through specialized GCon protocol (e.g. _Titan 500 series 10 slots frame).

This extension is compatible with 500 series standardized plug type, however some manufacturers apply enormous screws to the plug itself, which prevent the device to fit in. Based on official research more then 90% of available 500 series racks will fit just fine. Currently known exceptions:

Rupert Neve Designs 500 series Rack (confirmed)
Aphex 500 series rack (not confirmed)
