Overview
  • 1Description

The PIE Compressor TDM from Waves was precision-modeled on a vintage Pye compressor similar to the ones used at London's acclaimed Olympic Studios. A mainstay of many esteemed British studios throughout the classic rock era, the original Pye processors are considered by many to be among the best buss compressors of all time.

Developed in association with producer/engineer Eddie Kramer, the plug-in features a meticulously modeled VU meter with superfast refresh rates that recreates the accuracy, sensitivity, and ballistic behavior of a physical analog meter.
