Waves Audio C6

August 2, 2010

Multiband compressor

To create the C6, Waves took all the functions of the C4, and then added two additional floating bands plus a sidechain feature, for one-stop vocal and instrument shaping. The C6 lets users zero in on problem frequencies. The C6 is for vocal and instrument shaping, offering de-essing, de-popping, feedback management and more. For live sound, the C6 provides total control over dynamics and EQ. For auto-ducking of music and ambience under speech in a post production setting, the C6 sidechain lets users carve out just the vocal frequency range, instead of attenuating the entire signal.
