Waves Audio and HARMAN Professional Now Shipping
the Waves dbx® 160 Compressor/Limiter Plugin

NAB SHOW, LAS VEGAS, April 13, 2015 Waves Audio (booth C9249) and HARMAN Professional are proud to announce the shipment of the Waves dbx® 160 Compressor/Limiter plugin. Founded in 1971, dbx has always aimed “to get closer to the realism of a live performance.” This goal has guided the development of the Waves dbx 160 plugin, allowing users to achieve stunning realism in the studio and to add nuance to live performances.

Considered one of the best drum compressors ever, the original dbx 160 stands tall among its peers, boasting a very clean sound with minimum THD. The fast-acting dbx 160 compressor was used in almost every major recording in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s, and later models in the 160 series also became an industry standard.

Created in collaboration with dbx and authorized by HARMAN, the Waves dbx 160 plugin utilizes advanced modeling technologies to deliver the most authentic-sounding emulation in existence. Waves offers this realism in both Native and SoundGrid® versions.

Intended for use in the studio and live, the Waves dbx 160 plugin also features an MS matrix, mix and noise controls, and a stereo component (the original hardware was mono only).

Waves dbx 160 plugin features:

  • Created in collaboration with dbx
  • Meticulous modeling of the original dbx 160 compressor
  • Designed for both studio and live use
  • MS matrix
  • Mix & noise controls
  • Stereo component

Jason Kunz, dbx Market Manager of Recording & Broadcast, comments, “We at dbx Professional Products are very excited to be working with Waves on the legacy dbx 160 plugin. The meticulous detail that Waves dedicates to their product development is clearly heard in the finished product.”

Mick Olesh, Waves EVP Sales & Marketing, adds, “We are delighted to be working together with HARMAN and especially excited about our first release: the Waves dbx 160.”
