I'll jump in and counter that it's a cultural thing, bus/buss...buss, as I have been told in a few places, is a British thing.  I've always spelled it buss.  Does it make me a bad person?

I doubt it.

However, SSL (who are English) spell it "Bus" and Waves (who are Israeli) spell it Buss.


I know, I know..."English," you're saying to yourself, "is a language. How can a console manufacturer be a language?"

Well rest assured that they didn't invent their own language when spelling the word "Bus" correctly in the singular form.

It's not like one of those inexplicable named things like "St. James's Park".

Yes but they were speaking "American", otherwise it would be labelled "group"

All I know is this...I know that when someone writes "buss," they are referring to the audio routing thing, and not the motor vehicle thing, which, I swear to God, in my dumbness, is something I could get confused by.  "Why do I want to put the guitar solo on the bus?  Where's it going?  OOHHHH...fuck.  I'm dumb."

"Buss" is pure malapropism. Technicians are not known for their spelling or grammar

Main Entry: 1bus
Pronunciation: 'b&s
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural bus

Hate to resurrect old threads, but I always spelt it "buss" for anything electrical.

And, of course, that's completely and utterly incorrect.

It's spelled bus.  One 's'.

I like to buss my stereo bus with a little compression.

I like to buss my girlfriend while riding on the bus.

My console has 24 busses.

My girlfriend likes tender busses.

Cornfused yet?
