Review – JST Bus Glue Plugins

I’m not generally a fan of “one-knob” macro style plug-ins. But there is a new series, called Bus Glue, from Joel Wanask at Joey Sturgis Tones (JST) that is the exception to the rule.

JST Bus Glue

Bus Glue is a series of compressor/limiter based plug-ins specifically designed as unique mixing tools intended for placement either on your main instrument, or bus tracks.

Bus Glue contains versions for drums, bass, guitars, vocals, keys, and mix bus. Each contains a unique compressor and processor design.


In this video, I put it to work on a fairly sparse arrangement, so we can really hear what each of the plug-ins is doing. They add Joel’s secret sauce and work great in this scenario in moderation for subtle glue and colouring. In other more aggressive styles, they sound great slammed hard for some dramatic and powerful processing!
