Waves Audio has announced that its new eMo D5 Dynamics plugin is now available.
The first plugin to use Waves’ Parallel Detection technology, Waves eMo D5 features five dynamics processors — Gate, Leveler, DeEsser, Compressor and Limiter — in one easy-to-use interface.
Thanks to Waves’ Parallel Detection technology, each of the five processors responds to the original signal and to each of the other processed signals simultaneously. This lets users instantly control the total dynamic change introduced by the different processors, ensuring that the final sound maintains clarity without over-compression.
The eMo D5 Dynamics plugin also provides a combined gain reduction meter for the Leveler, Compressor and Limiter, making it easier to monitor and control levels.
With its single-page GUI, users will be able to set up a dynamically balanced mix without having to open and tweak different dynamic plugins. And with its zero latency, low CPU consumption and sound quality, eMo D5 is ideal for both live and studio engineers, according to the manufacturer.
The Gate and Compressor processors feature dedicated HP/LP filters and an external sidechain option, while the Smooth Limiter features zero latency and sharp attack. The DeEsser includes pre/post-Compressor routing, and the C-weighted Leveler boasts adjustable range. A combined gain reduction meter for the Leveler, Compressor and Limiter is also featured, and the plugin is fully compatible with touchscreens.
