Get Your Mix in Shape with C4

If you record, you need a multiband dynamics processor. Dynamics - the ratio between the loudest and quietest parts of a track - are critical when it comes to how well your mixes will come across on different playback systems - or the radio. A multiband dynamics processor lets you split the audio spectrum into sections and treat them individually for greater control. Waves' C4 gives you unparalleled control over your sound with four bands of up and down expansion, limiting, and compression - plus dynamic and standard EQ.

Combining technologies from Waves' storied Renaissance Compressor and C1 Parametric Compander, C4 lets you contour your mix while retaining maximum transparency - and it's perfect for individual instruments as well. If you want your mixes to really punch, you've got to take control of the dynamics. So get C4 - and get your mix in shape.

The only compressor you need

I own many Waves plug ins… Gold Bundle, CLA collection, SSL collection, Maserati collection but the C4 is without any doubt the most powerful and flexible of all of them. If you`re new to the C4, it can be a bit of a learning curve and its easy to destroy a track or mix if you don`t know how to use it. I recommend reading the manual and also start with the presets when you first start using the C4 and keep in mind that a little goes a long way. Crossover points allow the user to treat lows, mids and highs all differently. This is especially useful on vocals, drums, and the mix.
