Overview

The CX1V is a professional compressor/expander plug-in.
This unit offers an easy to use interface that drives a sophisticated and flexible dynamic control algorithm. The wide number of control parameters and features (e.g. look ahead, hard/soft knee), makes the CX1V the tool of choice to control the dynamic of vocal parts, instruments or complex mixes. Additionally, the expansion capability of the CX1V can be used to improve old audio recordings by restoring a more natural dynamic and an enhanced signal-to-noise ratio.

The CX1V compressor/expander has been designed to obtain an extremely transparent action with a natural and smooth response.

MORE DETAILS

In order to understand the function of a dynamic processing unit, picture a human being that is required to supervise the volume of a microphone in order to keep a good sound level while avoiding unwanted feedback. In a software/hardware dynamic processor, the human action is replaced by an algorithm that, much more accurately, can control the level of the audio program. The accuracy of this algorithm greatly affects the transparency of the compression. Only high quality algorithms can offer unchanged spectral response, with balanced and natural sound.

Testimonials

The GUI is very nice and the sound is excellent!!!! Both Limiter and Compressor have really good algorithms!!!!! I tried lots of compressors within the last 3 months, only the ones from Waves comes near to yours. Very good work!!!!!

Eric VanLandingham
musician / audio engineer

Wow, I had no idea the plug-ins were this great! I have worked with them on a 1 minute drum track for a few hours and I am amazed at the quality. I am sold, these are the plugs needed to create pro sound within host recording apps.

Craig Anderton

What’s most impressive about the CX1V is the transparency. This is not a compressor that encourages “squashing”-type special effects, but you can easily restrict the dynamic range of everything from individual instruments to program material while retaining a very natural sound…if you crave a quality compressor, check out the demo of this fine plug-in.
