Waves Audio Debuts eMo D5 Dynamics Plugin Set

Waves Audio is now delivering the eMo D5 Dynamics plugin, the first to use parallel detection technology delivering five dynamics processors — gate, leveler, deEsser, compressor and limiter — in a single interface.

With Waves’ parallel detection technology, each of the five processors responds to the original signal and to each of the other processed signals simultaneously.

Users can instantly control the total dynamic change introduced by the different processors, ensuring that the final sound achieves maximum clarity without over-compression. The 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 with maximum efficiency, saving time by not having to open and tweak different dynamic plugins. With its zero latency, low CPU consumption and pure sound quality, eMo D5 is a natural for both live and studio engineers.
