Waves Announces C6 Multiband Compressor
Waves has announced the C6 Multiband Compressor, an update of the C4 for PC and Mac.
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 with precision. With four crossover bands plus two additional floating bands and a flexible sidechain feature, the C6 is a solution for vocal and instrument shaping, offering de-essing, de-popping, feedback management and more, giving users all the multiband compression and dynamic equalization they need to control, tame and shape their sound.
For mixing and mastering in the studio, the C6 gives users the power to shape any sound, with creative compression, dynamic EQ, flexible sidechaining and more. For live sound, the C6 provides total control over dynamics and EQ, from feedback management to in-depth vocal shaping. 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.
