Among audio professionals, the Fairchild 670 is the most coveted of all compressors, not only because of its unique color and character, but also its rarity and price: With fewer than 100 units ever made, original Fairchild routinely go for tens of thousands of dollars on the vintage market. Now, with the WAVES PuigChild Hardware Compressor, you can have the legendary Fairchild sound-in the studio or on the road-for less than you’ve ever imagined.
When Waves set out to model the Fairchild, they turned to Grammy award-winning producer/engineer Jack Joseph Puig, renowned among gear aficionados for his extensive collection of exceptional, hand-picked outboard equipment. Granting them exclusive access to his finest unit, Jack worked closely with Waves, making sure they captured every nuance of its distinctive harmonic complexity.
