KNOXVILLE, TN —Waves Audio,
a leading provider of digital signal processing solutions, is now
shipping the Waves BSS® DPR-402 Compressor/Limiter/De-Esser.
Long favored by audio engineers in studio, live and
broadcast environments, the original BSS® DPR-402 dynamics processor is
known for delivering the punchy, explosive sound of countless rock,
dance and hip-hop recordings since the 80s.
Working in association with BSS Audio, Waves has now
modeled this super-versatile, long-unavailable hardware unit, 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, de-esser or limiter. However, it really shows its colors
when these processes are combined, and when it is used to selectively
process individual parts of the audio band while leaving the rest of the
spectrum untouched. The limitless possibilities range from
low-frequency expansion and narrow-band compression to general dynamic
equalization for creating 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 inherent 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.
Noel Larson, Director of Signal Processing and
Microphones for BSS, comments, ”We are very pleased to have the
opportunity to bring back this fantastic product with Waves. The DPR-402
is integral to the sound of my classic recordings and now the next
Mick Olesh, Waves EVP Sales & Marketing, adds,
“We are excited about the current release of this popular favorite, the
BSS DPR-402, which enables our users to have access and experience the
benefits of this unique product.”
