Manny Marroquin on the MM Tone Shaper: “Parallel compression plays a huge part in my mixing technique. It adds richness and really brings out the full character of almost any sound and helps different elements stand out within a mix. Tone Shaper is a parallel compressor with four separate bands plus EQ and a few other ‘secret ingredients’ that make it quick and easy to change tonality of a track to match your mix. I’ve found that when a mix is like 80% there, instead of EQ or volume, adding the Tone Shaper makes things jump out, without sacrificing space in the mix.”

H-Comp combines the modeled behavior of transformers, tubes, and transistors, together with the power and precision that only a plugin can provide. Waves took everything they learned while modelling classic hardware for the modern studio staple SSL 4000 Collection, V-Series, and API Collection plugins and blended the best of yesterday’s sound with today’s technology. The result—the H-Comp Hybrid Compressor—works in ways that mixers could only dream about back in the day.
