The PuigChild 660 & 670Native from Waves is a plug-in that emulates the sound of the now legendary Fairchild compressor. Originally designed for vinyl mastering, the now remaining hardware units command "artwork" prices and are virtual unobtainable to mere mortals.
However, the sound characteristics of the unit are universally sought after. The Waves plug-in has captured every distinctive nuance of Jack Joseph Puig's Fairchild 670, along with every detail of its rich harmonic complexity. Linked and unlinked modes are included, as is a lateral vertical mode for optimal stereo imaging.
