Waves has introduced the BSS DPR-402, a Compressor/Peak Limiter/De-Esser. Here's the full details in their own words...

Long favored by audio engineers in studio, live and broadcast environments, the original BSS DPR-402 hardware helped deliver the punchy, explosive sound of countless rock, dance and hip-hop recordings since the 80s.

Working in collaboration with BSS Audio, Waves has now modeled this long-unavailable dynamics processor as a plugin, bringing back its diverse functions and sounds, and adding new features for extra flexibility and ease of use.

BSS DPR-402 can be used as a straightforward compressor, limiter or de-esser. But it really shows its colors when these processes are combined, and when it is used to selectively process individual parts of the audio band, leaving the rest of the spectrum untouched. The endless possibilities range from low-frequency expansion and narrow-band compression to general dynamic equalization to create surprising enhancement effects.

Waves has also added five features unique to the plugin: an MS matrix to separately process the mid and the sides, a Mix control to balance the processed and unprocessed signal, a Noise control to add or remove the modeled noise of the original unit, a Gain Reduction control, and an option for separate L/R metering.

Together, these varied options give you a uniquely flexible tool for dynamic control, with a wealth of possibilities for you to explore.

Features:

  • Created in association with BSS
  • AudioPrecise software model of the super-versatile BSS DPR-402 Compressor/Peak Limiter/De-Esser
  • Separately control the dynamics of selected frequency ranges12 modes providing quick access to diverse combinations of dynamics processing
  • Two independent sidechains per channel for extra flexibility
  • Auto mode for program-dependent attack and release control
  • MS matrix for separate mid-sides processing
