Long favored by studio, live and broadcast engineers, the BSS® DPR-402 dynamics processor
is known for its punch, versatility, and the explosive sound it delivered on countless rock, dance
and hip-hop hits since the 80s.
Working in association with BSS Audio, Waves has now modeled this long-unavailable unit,
bringing back its diverse functions and sounds, and adding new features for extra flexibility
and ease of use.
BSS DPR-402 can be used as a straightforward compressor, limiter or de-esser. But it really
shows its colors when these processes are combined, and when it is used to selectively process
individual parts of the audio band, leaving the rest of the spectrum untouched. The endless
possibilities range from low-frequency expansion and narrow-band compression to general
dynamic equalization to create surprising enhancement effects.
Waves has also added five features unique to the plugin: an MS matrix to separately process
the mid and the sides, a Mix control to balance the processed and unprocessed signal, a Noise
control to add or remove the modeled noise of the original unit, a Gain Reduction control, and
an option for separate L/R metering.
Together, these varied options give you a uniquely flexible tool for dynamic control,
with a wealth of possibilities for you to explore.
