A legendary mastering compressor and limiter is coming to your DAW. Swedish software sages Softube have teamed up with Weiss to re-make the DS-1-Mk3 in the box. A high-end, high-quality unit, the DS-1 has been hailed as “impeccable” by legendary engineer Bob Katz but at nearly nine-thousand dollars, has only found a home in high-end mastering studios.

Softube have brought the unit to the masses with their new plugin in collaboration with Weiss, re-creating the code “line for line”. At $499, it’s still not a cheap plugin, but it’s certainly a far cry from the cost of the original unit. Watch the video below for more details. Before you run your mix through the DS-1, why not try Softube's Tape plugin too for some extra character?
