Softube & Weiss: Meeting of the Minds

Weiss has been a pioneer in digital audio equipment design since 1979. That’s when Weiss founder, Daniel Weiss, joined Willi Studer AG in Switzerland as an engineer. In 1985, Weiss struck out on his own and founded Weiss Engineering with a focus on pioneering digital audio equipment for Mastering Studios. The result of that endeavour is now legend.

Softube’s relationship with Weiss started in 2008 when they were first introduced to Daniel Weiss. Despite having so many guiding principles in common, it wasn’t until 2015 that Softube got serious about working together. Three years—and some blood, sweat, and tears—later, the Softube + Weiss DS1-MK3 plug-in was unveiled to great fanfare. And the tradition continues.

Mastering compression, limiting, and de-essing without compromise. Every mastering engineer’s fondest dream is about to come true. Softube's plug-in is a line-by-line code port of the legendary Weiss DS1-MK3 mastering processor — the unit no serious mastering engineer can do without.

Its transparency, unparalleled versatility, and exceptional sound quality make it a must-have, heard (or rather not heard) on pretty much any major record you’d care to mention from the last twenty years. And in that time updates and improvements by Weiss have led to the near-perfection of the DS1-MK3.

Weiss MM-1

Loudness Done Right

Based on the legendary Weiss DS1-MK3, the centrepiece of mastering studios the world over (and also now available as a Softube plug-in), the future of fast and professional mix maximizing is now here - the MM-1 Mastering Maximizer.

Featuring the very same algorithms as the original digital hardware unit, the MM-1 offers five flavours of limiting; Transparent, Loud, Punch, Wide, and De-ess; intelligently progressing as the ‘amount’ knob turns, and blendable with the mix control, to give users precisely the right amount of power over the feel of their masters.

Crucial to this plug-in is that it can’t sound bad - the intelligent processes happening under the hood as the amount knob turns; the filtering, compression, de-essing, and so on; have been carefully designed by highly experienced mastering engineers using the industry-standard DS1-MK3 as a foundation.

And there’s no better mastering limiter out there. This product allows users to get their mixes exactly as loud as they want, with exactly the sound they want, without sacrificing dynamics and musicality.

Features

  • Simple interface controlling detailed expert mastering processes.
  • Five ‘flavours’ of limiting available.
  • Contains the very same technology as the legendary hardware mastering processor, the Weiss MM-1.
  • Fully licensed and endorsed by Daniel Weiss himself.
  • Great for maximizing your mix-bus quickly and effectively.
  • Go as loud as you want; louder than any other product out there; without sacrificing desirable tone and dynamics.
  • Impossible to get it wrong. Be the master of your own masters!

Weiss Compressor/Limiter

The Modern & Transparent Mastering Compressor/Limiter

The mastering stage is the last chance to make or break a track, so getting it right can be the difference between a battle won or lost. That’s why the startling transparency and effectiveness of the Weiss digital compression algorithms, and its unrivalled versatility in terms of detailed control over attack and release times, knee settings, ratio, threshold, filters (low pass and bandpass), and other crucial factors, are a must-have.

And being able to push a track to the appropriate degree of loudness without unpleasant artefacts from the limiter is rightfully expected of any modern mastering engineer. That’s when the quality of your tools really matters; the Weiss is the only product that allows you to achieve such a clean, sweet, and dynamic sound at high levels. And with two brand-new advanced limiter algorithms on top of the Weiss original, you have more top-of-the-line options with Weiss than ever before.

But it’s perhaps the new visualisations that really make the Compressor/Limiter a no-brainer. Being able to see in detail the precise effect you’re having on your signal; where things are working nicely and where you might be over or under-compressing; allows you to know your material better and make the right calls with a degree of precision and detail that even the very best ears can’t promise.

Features

  • A modern and transparent digital compressor and limiter, with code-ported algorithms from the industry-standard DS1-MK3.
  • Total control, without an over-complicated interface. The ‘expert’ tools are all in a hidden side-menu.
  • Stunning and intuitive visualisations for detailed control, and intuitive experience.
  • Clean tweak-and-go faceplate, with immensely detailed controls hidden in side-menu.
  • Ultra-professional tool, but without the daunting, complex look.
  • Compress selectively, with low pass and bandpass filters.
  • Two brand-new advanced limiter algorithms in addition to the Weiss original.
  • Available as a single plug-in, or as part of the Weiss DS1-MK3 collection.

Weiss Deess

Whether you’re trying to tame sibilance in a lead vocal, rein in a sharp-sounding hi-hat, or reduce harshness while mastering, a truly great de-esser is as elusive as it is essential. Enter the Weiss Deess, available as an individual plug-in or as part of the Weiss DS1-MK3 collection. Most de-essers – even modern digital or plug-in units – lack versatility, user-friendliness, appropriate visualisation, or quite simply don’t work like you hope they will.

With a combination of the highly-prized sonics of the industry gold-standard Weiss DS1-MK3 – the go-to digital hardware de-essing unit used in top mastering studios the world over – and a totally modern and focused approach in design, Softube is psyched to announce the Weiss Deess Plug-in.

First of all, it has two completely independent bands. Most de-essers have one, but almost no sibilant has a single-frequency focus, especially when you’re dealing with complex material or mastering applications.

Secondly, it has a variety of filter shapes and excellent band-width control, allowing you to home in on precisely what you need to deal with, without collateral damage.

Thirdly, it has unparalleled visualizations. A large, colorful, and intuitive display shows FFT readouts as well as your filter shapes, so you can clearly see what effect you’re having on your signal.

Fourthly, the faceplate GUI is uncluttered, focusing on giving great visual information, but a side-menu allows control over everything; ratios, attack and release times, knee settings, make-up gain and more.

Fifth, a low-latency mode allows you to de-ess in tracking, saving the tedium in the mix of what can often feel like a non-creative editing task. Nothing beats getting it right on the way in.

Lastly, and most importantly of all, the Weiss algorithms, code-ported from the gold-standard DS1-MK3 unit, provide the best sounding de-essing in the world. It does the job effectively and transparently, without hassle or artefact.

Features

  • The best-sounding de-esser available, with code-ported algorithms from the industry-standard DS1-MK3.
  • Two bands of de-essing. This is the only de-esser you’ll need.
  • Stunning and intuitive visualisations make this de-esser a breeze to use.
  • Clean tweak-and-go faceplate, with immensely detailed controls hidden in side-menu.
  • Ultra-professional tool, but without the daunting, complex look.
  • Low-latency mode allows you to de-ess while tracking a vocal.
  • All the versatility you need in terms of filter shapes, frequencies etc.
