WNAMM12: Hardware Emulation Of The Fairchild 670


Among audio professionals, the Fairchild 670 is the definitive compressor because of its unique color and character, and it is highly coveted due to its rarity. Now, GRAMMY-winning producer/engineer/mixer Jack Joseph Puig (John Mayer, U2, Lady Gaga) has again joined forces with Waves Audio to introduce the PuigChild Hardware Compressor. Modeled on a rare, pristine-condition Fairchild 670 from Puig's personal collection, Waves say that the PuigChild captures every distinctive nuance of the original, along with its advanced compression techniques and incomparable sound – achieving every detail of its rich harmonic complexity and functionality.
Jack Joseph Puig told us, "The PuigChild Compressor truly captures the vibe of the original, and as a piece of hardware, it allows us to have the same tactile experience, with the same unique sound. It's like a dream come true."
When Waves set out to model the Fairchild, they turned to Puig, who granted Waves exclusive access to his finest unit. Puig worked closely with Waves Research and Development group for over two years, through every phase of the development process, making sure they captured every nuance of its distinctive harmonic complexity and feel of its controls. Manufactured with the same impeccable standards and attention to detail that Waves products are known for, the PuigChild is a remarkable engineering achievement that truly represents the best of the best.
