WaveRider v4

WaveRider V4 Plugin UI on Pro Tools UI

Pure volume riding

WaveRider's level detecting algorithm automatically raises or lowers the Pro Tools fader to maintain a user selectable output level. It handles the soft and loud parts of the signal separately, so you can set it to achieve snappy attenuation on louder levels, but having it apply gentle gain to quieter signals. Or vice versa.

WaveRider also has a Ducking feature that's incredibly flexible to use. Be it your vocal, bass guitar, voice over, or dialog tracks, WaveRider v4 makes it a breeze to maintain a smooth and consistent level so you don't end up over-compressing.
