Does anyone know what piece of hardware the sound emulation of the Waves Renaissance Compressor is modeled after?

Good question, as I really loved this one when I used to support WAVES. It was $ on bass and vocals

i always understood the Opto to be modelled after the LA-2A's behaviour and the Electro after the 1176.

Not really an answer to the OP's question but the Renaissance EQ was modeled after the Massive Passsive.

I have no idea if it was really modelled after any particular piece of hardware or not, but I sometimes prefer it to my hardware ssl g, for the same type of application. Of course, I use the hardware version, with the maxxbass and limiter.

Well using the word "Renaissance" in the name would suggest that the plug is supposed to sound like something vintage. But I suppose what I'm really looking for is a piece of hardware that sounds like this comp plug in its "auto-release" mode, which has a very modern sound, with a little bit of hype. Any ideas what piece of hardware will comp like a vintage comp, but have "auto-release" ?

Not sure but it’s actually quite difficult not to get a good sound with this plugin.

most hardware comps have some sort of auto release, even if it doesn't say auto anywhere on the face plate. so basically, try out a few, see what you like.

Again, maybe "inspired by". The tactile response of the Ren EQ is hardly similar to the Massive passive, and it certainly doesn't have the same tone. Maybe a similar Q range...I'd say that's probably it.

Why do you think it needs 64 samples of it's own buffer? You won't find the same feature in hardware...because it's impossible. "auto" in analog will not do the same thing. It will save you from having to set it...but, it's just going to be a sidechain manipulation to the detector--be it filtering or mixing in some RMS levels...there's no digital buffer for it to look ahead into.

True. It was designed in part by Hutch from Manley and Mike Gerzon and doesn't model any one eq. The eq uses a combination of Gerzon, Pultec and Baxandall type filters. Nothing much to do with the M.P. valve eq.

interesting.. I never thought about what it was modeled after... just knew that I liked it for its sheer simplicity and functionality. Kind of cool that it was modeled after 2 classics!

yea well..... there's nothing tubey about the opto setting in the r comp. and there's nothing, absolutely nothing resembling an 1176 coming out the other side of a waves r comp. having said that, the r comp is a classic in it's own right.
