WAVES Kramer PIE - Vintage-Modeled Compressor Plug-in

Legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer has worked with the best of the best. And we don’t just mean the acts, though it’s hard to beat spending studio time with Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Kiss. What we mean here is that Kramer’s golden ear has been developed through working with the best audio equipment on the planet, including the world’s most sought-after consoles and outboard gear. While not all of us have had the benefit of working in the best studios with iconic artists, we can now use the sophisticated plug-in technology from Waves to get our hands on unbelievably accurate models of the very gear Eddie trained his ears on.

Incomparable Bus Compressor
of the Classic Rock Era

Based on pulse-width modulation (PWM) technology, the Pye compressor’s speed, transparency, and low distortion set it apart from other compressor types. Known especially as a bus compressor for drums, backing vocals, and masters, classic studio engineers admired the Pye’s dazzling character.

No one knows the Pye compressor better than legendary producer Eddie Kramer (Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones). Designed with Eddie himself, Kramer PIE captures what made the Pye truly special.

Transparent Compression
from Gentle to Powerful

A Different Compression Technology

The Pye compressor used pulse-width modulation to control gain, not opto, FET, VCA, or other common gain-control elements. This is the secret to Kramer PIE’s fast, transparent, low-distortion compression.


Simple Controls: Instant Gratification

Kramer PIE is one of those plugins that “just works.” With its simplified control set, choose the compressor ratio or limiting, set the threshold and decay—then enjoy the standout compression character.


More than Bus Compression

Although the Pye compressor was best known for bus compression—whether drums, background vocals, or masters—it’s also a transparent compressor for any audio sources, especially vocals and bass.


Ideal Complement to Kramer HLS

At Olympic Studios, the Pye compressor was part of the signal chain with the Helios console channel strip. The Kramer PIE and HLS work together in the same synergistic fashion, to give that same vintage sound.
