Waves Audio announces the C6 Multiband Compressor, which is designed for studio, live sound and post-production engineers, and builds on the company's C4 for one-stop vocal and instrument shaping, as well as de-essing, de-popping, feedback management and more. With four crossover bands plus two additional floating bands and a flexible sidechain feature, the C6 promises the ability to zero in on problem frequencies with surgical precision.

For mixing and mastering, the C6 offers compression, dynamic EQ, flexible sidechaining and more. For live sound, the C6 provides total control over dynamics and EQ, from feedback management to in-depth vocal shaping. For auto-ducking of music and ambience under speech in a post-production setting, the C6 sidechain lets users carve out just the vocal frequency range, instead of attenuating the entire signal.

Other features include internal/external sidechain per band; individual band Listen mode; double-precision bit-resolution processing; Auto Release Control (ARC); up to 24-bit, 192kHz resolution; mono and stereo components; and support for TDM, RTAS, AudioSuite, VST and AU.

Waves C6 Multiband Compressor is available separately for $800 TDM/$400 Native MSRP, and as part of the Waves Mercury bundle. The company states that Mercury V7 owners covered by Waves Update Plan receive the C6 at no additional charge.
