Following on from their other Weiss plug-ins, Softube has launched the Weiss Compressor/Limiter. This is the story in their own words...
The mastering stage is the last chance to make or break a track, so getting it right can be the difference between a battle won or lost. With such small tolerances, it’s here that the quality of your tools matters most. Enter the new Weiss Compressor/Limiter.
The name Weiss is synonymous with quality in mastering, and a truly exceptional compressor/limiter is essential to any serious mastering engineer.
Earlier this year Softube brought the Weiss DS1-MK3 digital dynamics processor, the top-of-the-line go-to for a huge proportion of the world’s greatest mastering gurus, into the software realm. Now, with the Weiss Compressor/Limiter, the DSP-happy Swedes draw on its essence (and code-base) to bring a totally focused and fit-for-purpose modern answer to the question ‘how should I deal with dynamics on my mix bus?’
The startling transparency and effectiveness of the Weiss digital compression algorithms in the Compressor/Limiter, and its unrivalled versatility in terms of detailed control over attack and release times, knee settings, ratio, threshold, filters (low pass and band pass), and other crucial factors, make the product a must-have.
And that’s before even mentioning the cutting-edge graphical visualisations – users will be able to see in detail the precise effect they’re having on their signal, allowing them to know their material better and make the right calls with a degree of precision and detail that even the very best ears can’t promise.
Pricing and Availability:
Available individually, priced at $299 ($249 intro offer until July 19th 2018), or as part of the Weiss DS1-MK3 collection.
