IGS Audio Bison 500 Series Parallel Mixer

Turn your favorite dual mono compressor into a parallel, Mid/Side compressor
MFR# BISON 500

Product Description

The IGS Audio Bison 500 is a simple mid/side processor with a dry/wet mixer. It can be plugged into any 500 series rack equipped with a standard power supply. It has two stereo jack connectors (2 sends and 2 returns) on the front panel of the device used for plugging in your favorite dual mono or two mono compressors.

With a flick of the switch your compressor(s) start working in Mid/Side mode, where the left channel controls the common/Mid section of the two channels and the right channel controls the difference between the channels referred to as Side. Adding more sides or compressing them differently can increase your stereo image significantly.

The dry/wet knob can be very useful for parallel mixing. It is great for situations, where you want to pump up the sound without losing the natural dynamics of the dry mix.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
