SUONOBUONO - nABC - launching tomorrow!!

Post by shepan » Mon Jun 10, 2019 9:46 am

Hello all!!

As some of you know, tomorrow we will launch our company SUONOBUONO's first product, the nABC (not Another Boring Compressor). Needless to say, this forum has been a great resource during the design phase, so thanks all 8-)



It is a stereo analog sidechain compressor that can be triggered by analog gate/CV, USB, MIDI and pedals, in addition to audio. It also has some nice features such as presets, real-time USB/MIDI automation and a touch-based interface.

I really look forward to your comments! And if you are curious, feel free to have a preview and see how it looks and sounds below :tu: Thanks!

I take it this is a VCA based compressor? Nice features for a small package

Thank you!! This is really a big adventure for us :)
yes, it uses the same VCA found on a few analog synths

Hi, many of you have asked for audio demos and tutorials for the nABC, so here come a couple videos:

I dislike Kickstarter but decided to support this project. I look forward to receiving the unit and helping with the beta-test cycle.

nABC + Roland modular

Post by shepan » Wed Jun 19, 2019 4:08 pm

Posting a little experiment, using the nABC as a control voltage modulator to "sidechain" a VCF.

This is possible becaue the nABC audio path is DC-coupled, so it can process CV in addition to audio. Enjoy! :goo:

Dear Wigglers,

Some of you asked me how do the envelopes on the nABC compare to modular synths, so I did an A/B lab comparison with my Roland System 500 and published the results:



It was interesting for me to get insights on how different VCAs behave when stressed to very short and deep transients. And just to make it very clear: I have no intention to criticise the System 500, rather the opposite. I chose it as benchmark because I really like it, it's indeed my own bought unit in the test :)

Hi!! Some of you asked about the nABC sound when used without external sidechain, as a "traditional" compressor. We just published a comparison video where we benchmark with a DBX and a Warm Audio 1176 clone, I hope you enjoy it :)



Please note that there are less than 3 days left to get the nABC at discounted price:
