Review: Waves H-Comp (Native) Analog-modeled Compressor Plug-in
Positives:Great sound, lots of features, good price point, easy to navigate
What a great compressor plug in. Pretty much a swiss army knife type of comp that can be useful on anything. With the analog modeling you can dial in all sorts of character and blend that with the dry signal.
This compressor comes with the usual attack, release, ratio, and threshold. The added features are what makes this plug in. First the analog modeling has 4 different settings from clean modern to dirty vintage. The punch feature adds some forward presence and quickness which is really cool on drums and bass. The release time can also be varied according to host bpm, bpm, or milliseconds. Add to the that the mix knob to blend the wet and dry signals. Very cool.
This is a great sounding plug in with lots of cool features. You can usually find it on sale somewhere which also makes it a good value.
