In an interview w/ Sound On Sound, Rob Swire of Knife Party [formerly Pendulum] states this about the Waves Audiotrack channel strip plugin: "Before we used that we used something weird, which was Waves' Audiotrack [plug-in]. It was the only thing I could find that got the same sort of sound that this has. There's better stuff out, the Waves SSL pack had been released, but I didn't like that at all. I think it's just that the Waves Audiotrack was straight peak compression, no RMS involved. I think the Roll Music compressor has a combination of the two, which gets a similar effect, just straight linear compression. It's also the side-chain filter on that. They should tell people this in the manual, but if you open the box, there's a jumper and you can set the side-chain [filter] to whatever you want, so we can sort of get it above our big Def Leppard-style snare.more
