If you have even a remote interest in audio production, you’ve learned that compression is usually an important step in the audio mastering process. In recent decades, certain hardware compressors have stood head and shoulders above the rest, becoming invaluable assets to countless producers around the world. Two such pieces of gear are the Fairchild 660 and Fairchild 670 compressors. These units are known for bringing warmth and vibrancy to any final mix that passes thru them. And while these Fairchild compressors may be highly sought-after, they’re not exactly easy to come by. Especially for independent producers working on tight budgets.
Thats where the Waves PuigChild Compressor audio plugin comes in:
From the recording studio to the record lathe, the Fairchild was renowned for its advanced compression techniques and incomparable sound. We’ve collaborated with GRAMMY-winning producer/engineer Jack Joseph Puig (U2, Rolling Stones, Lady Gaga) to capture every distinctive nuance and harmonic detail of the vintage Fairchild 670 device housed in Jack’s own studio.
The PuigChild Compressor plugin is sold and distributed by Waves. The plugin is compatible with digital audio workstations (DAW) running on both macOS and Windows. Supported host DAWs include Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Ableton Live, GarageBand, Reaper, Adobe Audition, and more.
The PuigChild Compressor plugin normally retails for $349 but it’s currently on sale for the remarkable price of only $29. You can purchase the plugin direct from Waves using the link above.
