Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

The BSS DPR-402, in a Plug-in!

The BSS DPR-402 was a legendary dynamics processor, famous for its versatility and the punchy, explosive magic it worked on almost anything you fed it. In cooperation with BSS Audio, Waves modeled a mint-condition vintage unit and at Sweetwater, we're delighted with the resulting plug-in. Like the original hardware, the Waves BSS DPR-402 can function as a compressor, a limiter, or a de-esser. But it's when you combine functions that the '402 really shines. You can individually process segments of the frequency spectrum, as well, leaving the remaining audio untouched. From narrow-band compression to bass expansion to general dynamics processing, the Waves DPR-402 aces it all.

New features for enhanced operation

Waves enhanced the DPR-402 plug-in with features the hardware didn't have. There's the MS matrix that separately processes mid and sides, the Mix control that lets you balance your processed and unprocessed signals, the Noise control that lets you dial in the modeled noise of the original unit, and lastly, the separate L/R metering option. And of course, being software, all the functions of the Waves BSS DPR-402 are automatable by definition.

Waves BSS DPR-402 Features:
  • Plug-in designed in cooperation with BSS Audio
  • A meticulous model of the versatile BSS DPR-402 compressor/limiter/de-esser
  • Individually control the dynamics of select frequency ranges
  • 12 modes provide fast access to various combinations of dynamics processing
  • 2 independent sidechains per channel provide additional flexibility
  • Auto Mode provides program-dependent attack and release
  • MS matrix separately processes mid and sides
You've never used a dynamics processor like Waves' BSS DPR-402!
