Overview

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 plug-in 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 plug-in 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.

œTo get closer to the realism of live performance has been a goal of dbx since the companys inception in the 1970s. This goal has come full circle with the Waves dbx 160 compressor / limiter plugin, which enables you to achieve stunning realism in the studio or to add nuance to an actual live performance. The dbx 160 plugin is a digital model of a classic feed-forward hard-knee VCA-based compressor. On top of the accurate modeling of the original compressor’s sound, Waves has added, for optimal use, several features that did not exist in the original hardware: 1. Input gain control – to let you perfectly adjust the input level going into the compressor. 2. Mix control – to enable very quick parallel compression within the plugins. 3. Noise control – to add the hardware-modeled noise. 4. MS matrix in the stereo component – to enable separate compression between the mid and sides of the stereo signal. 5. Sidechain High Pass (SC-HP) – giving you the option of introducing a high-pass filter around 90 Hz on the sidechain, in order to remove low-frequency energy from the sidechain pass. The outcome is less compression on low-frequency centered signals.
