Waves have now released the dbx 160 as the first of the products announced at NAMM.
The original dbx 160 was considered by many as one of the best drum compressors. The 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 became industry standards.
The Waves 160 plug-in has been created in collaboration with dbx, has resulted in an authentic-sounding software version of this iconic piece of hardware. In addition to the 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.
Waves are also offering their 160 plug-in for a special introductory price of $99 for either the Native or SoundGrid version for a short period of time before the price will revert to the normal price of $150.
