Alternative to RComp

Hi guys,

Currently trying to get rid of waves from my everyday plugins, struggling for a good alternative to RComp.

I have the Focusrite d3 that I like on sync sound but I like using the RComp for comm and well recorded material.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Check out Avid's Pro Compressor, it's really an amazing sounding processor at a great price point ($99)

loads of great options. The new avid Pro plug look really good, Elixir from flux is very good too

looks like we are all joining the dump waves camp...

I love both the RComp and the FLUX Elixir (no plans to part with the RComp)

However, I really cannot say that the Elixir, wonderful as it is really would be a substitute for the RComp - They really are two very different things me. (Just my opinion)

Perhaps the Focusrite Midnight Compressor would be worth a try.

Best,
Alexa

I don't use compressors on my tracks any more. Just a slight multi band comp and limiting across auxes of ML4000 flavour.

With the new lkfs spec I don't really use limiters on my aux any more.
I only use comp on my dia, and only a couple of DB. I must say I rarely ever use multiband comps.

I still like some waves stuff... Rcomp and Rbass, the stuff is cheap.
Lots of waves specials been going on lately.

Elixir is a very different beast. It's a True Peak limiter, and is really meant to protect the top end of the dynamics of a show from going over, usually to meet some kind of spec. For compression, check out Avid ProCompressor, it works really well for clean/transparent compression.
