To create the C6, Waves took all the functions of the C4 and added two additional floating bands and a sidechain feature for one-stop vocal and instrument shaping. The C6 lets users zero in on problem frequencies with surgical precision. The C6 offeres four crossover bands and two additional floating bands, and a flexible sidechain feature, offering de-essing, de-popping, feedback management and more.
For mixing and mastering in the studio, the C6 features creative 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 pos-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; ARC Auto Release Control; up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution; mono and stereo components; supports TDM, RTAS, Audio Suite, VST and AU; and is PC and Mac compatible.
