The Waves C1-Compressor/Gate is a studio-quality stereo dynamics processor and a "parametric compander." The C1 is also a fully featured dynamic filtering processor capable of many unique effects including sound sweetening, enhancement applications, and applications requiring correction of sound quality problems. For maximum flex- ibility and efficiency, the C1 breaks into smaller components, such as the C1comp and C1gate, or the C1c/SC (comp with side-chain). This lets you choose exactly the dynamic tool needed for the job you have. The C1comp and C1 gate (which don't have side-chain or lookahead) now can be used at 88.2/96kHz on some native platforms. The C1 is designed for optimal subjective sound. While it is rich in features and functionality, and can do many things unavailable on any other dynamics processor (whether analog or digital) on the market, the design is based on features that sound good to the ear. The C1 consists of three independent stereo processing modules that can be used together in many different ways: • Compressor/expander module • Gate/expander module • Filter/equalizationmodule The compressor/expander module (Comp/Exp) is capable of operating as a high-level compressor, a gentle high level expander, or as a mid-level compressor whose compression can be “tuned” at any user-chosen signal level. This module also has a unique cancellation dynamics mode for cancelling out very high-level sounds. The gate/expander module (Gate/Exp) is capable of operating as a fully-featured expander or gate. It can also be used to take lower level signals and “compress them upwards”. The filter/equalization module (Filter) has a variety of filtering capabilities for many different kinds of processing, from conventional sidechain dynamics processing to a unique bandsplit dynamic EQ mode. This bandsplit con- figuration allows compression, expansion, or gating of any desired frequency band. Each module can be set for different operating modes, plus various combinations can be used for efficient use of your processing power. For example, the Comp/Exp can perform wideband dynamic processing while the Gate/ Exp module gates only the high frequencies (hiss gate). Another example would be using the compressor for bass compression while the Gate/Exp module gates rumble.
