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!

Take Control of Your Dynamics!

Streamline the way you process dynamics with Waves' C1 Parametric Compander plug-in. More than a mere one-trick dynamics plug-in, the Waves C1 Parametric Compander gives you three powerful processors in one: a compressor/expander, an expander/gate, and a filter/EQ. Use them separately or all together to quickly and painlessly make your loud parts louder, your quiet parts clearer, and your noise floor all but disappear. From basic mixing to full-fledged mastering, you'll find endless uses for the Waves C1 Parametric Compander plug-in.

Waves C1 Parametric Compander Dynamics Processor Plug-in Features:
  • 3 powerful processor modules in one easy-to-use dynamics plug-in
  • Compressor/Expander makes loud sounds louder, adding punch and fullness to your sound
  • Expander/Gate reduces quieter background sounds and silences the noise floor
  • Filter/EQ provides tone shaping for both your material and your side chain
  • All three processors are available separate or linked together
  • Split-band dynamics allow you to affect select sounds by isolating their primary frequency ranges
  • Internal and external side-chaining allow you to process your material with greater precision
  • Look-ahead feature preserves transients
  • Supports up to 24-bit/192kHz (dynamics only) digital resolutions
With Waves C1 Parametric Compander plug-in, the only limits to your dynamics are the ones you put on them!
