NAMM 2015: Waves Unveils the New DBX-160 Plug-In


Plug-in perennial Waves has announced some additions to its family at this year’s NAMM. First up is an emulation of the all-too-often-overlooked DBX-160. Developed in conjunction with Harman (who currently owns DBX) for meticulous modeling, the Waves DBX-160 was geared from the ground up to copy the tone and behavior of the original units authentically. Not satisfied to get the emulation right and call it a day, Waves takes full advantage of the digital domain and adds some features not found on the original, including a MS matrix, noise control, mix control (for parallel compression), and a stereo component.  

The signature series also grows with the announcement of the Butch Vig Vocals plug-in. Vig, known for producing acts such as Nirvana, the Foo Fighters, the Smashing Pumpkins, and his own band, Garbage. Like all plug-ins in the company’s signature series, it features straightforward, channel-strip like controls. The Butch Vig Vocal sports what only can be described as a unique GUI, with a very steam-punk feel.
