Waves releases dbx 160 Compressor / Limiter plugin

Waves has announced the release of the dbx 160 Compressor / Limiter effect plug-in for Native and SoundGrid.

Waves dbx 160

Considered one of the best drum compressors ever, the original dbx® 160 stands tall among its peers, boasting a very clean sound with minimum THD. The fast-acting dbx 160 compressor was used in almost every major recording in the late ‘70s and throughout the ‘80s, and later models in the 160 series also became industry standards.

Created in collaboration with dbx, the Waves dbx 160 compressor / limiter plugin is an authentic-sounding software version of this storied piece of hardware. In addition to its meticulous modeling of the vintage compressor, the Waves dbx 160 plugin incorporates unique and exclusive features not found in the original hardware, such as Waves’ MS Matrix, mix and noise controls, and a stereo component. The result is a must-have compressor / limiter for use in the studio, live, or both.

dbx 160 Compressor / Limiter plugin features

  • Created in collaboration with dbx®.
  • Meticulous modeling of the original dbx® 160 compressor.
  • Designed for both studio and live use.
  • MS matrix.
  • Mix & noise controls.
  • Stereo component.

The plug-in is available for purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD (regular $150 USD).

“To get closer to the realism of live performance” has been a goal of dbx since the company’s inception in the 1970s. This goal has come full circle with the Waves dbx 160 compressor / limiter plugin, which enables users to achieve stunning realism in the studio or to add nuance to an actual live performance.

The plugin is to be released soon. Pricing TBA.

Waves intros H-Reverb Hybrid Reverb

Related: , , Posted in news on Jan 27, 2015 - comment 0 comments

Waves has introduced H-Reverb, a reverb based on Finite Impulse Response (FIR) reverberation technology, providing richer, deeper reverb tails that sit beautifully in the mix while breathing crisp air into your tracks.

Waves H-Reverb

The FIR engine that powers H-Reverb lets you shape and customize the reverb decay envelope beyond the standard linear forms, resulting in perfectly gated, real reverse, and dense reverb tails that don’t muddy up the mix. Taking things one step further, H-Reverb incorporates Waves’ advanced analog modeling along with a drive control, offering signal behavior that until now was found exclusively in high-end hardware reverb devices. This unique design also enables input drive, a technique favored by many top engineers.

To top it all off, H-Reverb includes an impressive library of artist presets from the industry’s leading mixing engineers, as well as presets inspired by vintage and modern classics. These presets may be the perfect space you’re looking for, or simply the perfect point to start from.

By fusing classic reverb concepts with forward-thinking features that break new ground in digital reverb processing, H-Reverb provides uncompromising sound quality and boundless creative control.

H-Reverb features

  • Resonant filter sweeps for creating innovative reverb effects.
  • EQ and dynamics module for compression, ducking and de-essing.
  • ADA analog modeling and drive control.
  • Artist presets from the industry’s leading mixing engineers.
  • Full buildup timing and shaping.
  • Pre-delay BPM sync.
  • Support for full 5.1 channel surround setups.
  • Quick reference button.
  • User-friendly GUI with collapsible version.

H-Reverb is to be released soon.
