Weiss MM-1

Loudness done right

Some brands become synonymous with their fields. They so revolutionise and define their product or process that true experts can’t see beyond them. When it comes to audio mastering, the one-and-only name is Weiss.

Based on the legendary Weiss DS1-MK3, the centerpiece of mastering studios the world over (and also now available as a Softube plug-in), we’re delighted to offer the future of fast and professional mix maximizing - the MM-1 Mastering Maximizer.

Featuring the very same algorithms as the original digital hardware unit, the MM-1 offers five flavours of limiting; Transparent, Loud, Punch, Wide, and De-ess; intelligently progressing as the ‘amount’ knob turns, and blendable with the mix control, to give you precisely the right amount of power over the feel of your masters.

The MM1 is one of the best mastering tools I've ever used.

Loudness Done Right
It’s impossible to make it sound bad - the intelligent processes happening under the hood of this plug-in as you turn the amount knob; the filtering, compression, de-essing, and so on; have been carefully designed by highly experienced mastering engineers using the industry standard DS1-MK3 as a foundation.

The MM-1 limiter does not have a sonic footprint apart from when adding presets and is extremely good.

Softube have always made great plugins, so it no surprise that the Weiss MM-1 Mastering Maximizer and DS1-MK3 will be a great addition to my armoury. I’ve found the DS1-MK3 particularly useful in holding my mixes together…

Plugins like the MM1 are the reason people think mastering is black magic. With very few controls, this plugin somehow just 'knows' how to get your music sounding great - loud, punchy, wide, and the de-esser is incredible!

The Weiss MM-1 has been extremely impressive, already using it on my master bus and drum bus with amazing results. You can really pump kick drums and bring up the entire mix in a magical way. I can see myself going back to this one again and again.

I must say I am extremely impressed with both of Weiss DS1-MK3 and MM1 plug-ins. The DS1-MK3 is probably one of the most impressive compressor limiter combo plugins I have heard. So transparent, and allows you so much control. The mid/side parallel comp functions are incredible. Its a dream come true to have this on my master bus now.

Impressively true to the original right down to the meter response. The Weiss compressors/limiter maintains a unique sonic transparency not heard in other products. Even on mixes that are already heavily limited, I can get a little 'more' out of the song while maintaining dynamics and without adding any distortion.
