The mastering stage is the last chance to make or break a track, so getting it right can be the difference between a battle won or lost. That’s why the startling transparency and effectiveness of the Weiss digital compression algorithms, and its unrivalled versatility in terms of detailed control over attack and release times, knee settings, ratio, threshold, filters (low pass and band pass), and other crucial factors, are a must-have.
After spending a little time getting used to the simplified interface, I have really started to see how the new Weiss Compressor/Limiter plugin not only sounds excellent & transparent like it’s big brother, but I can dial up the sounds I’m looking for only quicker! It seems to ‘know’ what I’m wanting it to do?!? Excellent addition to the full DS1! And perfect for newer engineers who may not be totally sure how to deal with a 5-knob release setup! ;^)

And being able to push a track to the appropriate degree of loudness without unpleasant artifacts from the limiter is rightfully expected of any modern mastering engineer. That’s when the quality of your tools really matters; the Weiss is the only product that allows you to achieve such a clean, sweet, and dynamic sound at high levels. And with two brand-new advanced limiter algorithms on top of the Weiss original, you have more top-of the line options with Weiss than ever before.
The legendary Digital Compressor – This is the streamlined version plug-in of the very complex unit – If you just need quality compression or limiting – its here and it rocks !!!!! no need to go in to deep its all in front of you.

But it’s perhaps the new visualisations that really make the Compressor/Limiter a no-brainer. Being able to see in detail the precise effect you’re having on your signal; where things are working nicely and where you might be over or under-compressing; allows you to know your material better and make the right calls with a degree of precision and detail that even the very best ears can’t promise.
Of course, this being a plug-in, you can run as many instances of it as you like, so there’s nothing to stop you using its uniquely clear and precise character on individual instrument tracks. Take a bass guitar, for example, and run the Compressor/Limiter with a low-pass filter applied, to compress only the lowest frequencies and fatten out the body of the instrument, just as you might with a multi-band compressor. Or use the Compressor/Limiter on a vocal in conjunction with the Deess, for perfectly tailored dynamics processing across the frequency range, and no compromise.
Whatever you do with it, the Compressor/Limiter’s unbeatable sound-quality makes it a joy to use, and ultimately leads to better-than-ever finished sounds, so buy or upgrade today.
