Video Tutorial – Smoothing With the Waves V-Comp Plugin
Groove3 audio software tutor Eli Krantzberg has produced a free video tutorial about using the Waves V-Comp Compressor plugin in Logic Pro X to add a smooth and fat analog style quality to several kinds of audio.
Hear how this unique Waves compressor is used to add a smooth and fat analog style quality to synth bass, drums, vocals, and the mix bus. Using time constants and a fixed nominal output gain, the Waves V-Comp recreates the rich lush buss sound of the vintage 2254 hardware compressor. This super-responsive dynamics processor packs a recognizable musical punch heard on countless hit records. Its controlled, gentle compression can really glue a mix together.
The Waves V-Comp Compressor is included in the Studio Classics Collection – a collection of 11 meticulously-modeled audio plugins based on gear that helped make recording history. It’s on sale during the entire month of November for $499 instead of the regular $1699. More info about the Studio Classics Collection here.
