Waves Primary Source Expander

The Waves Primary Source Expander (PSE) is tailored for vocals, guitars, strings, brass, woodwinds and more. PSE works like a fader that attenuates the channel’s level when the source goes below the threshold you’ve set. This plugin is great at reducing stage noise leakage when your microphones are idle and will help you get an overall mix more coherent, more focused, and has better phase relations.

PSE also provides advanced side-chain and ducking controls for greater consistency and precision when treating complex live scenarios. Whether you are mixing FOH or monitors in a live venue or working on a live recording in the studio, PSE will ensure that your mics are as loud and clean as they can be, while preserving your source’s original tone and the natural ambience of your location.
