Digital mastering compressor/ limiter/ de-esser - 96 kHz


The MK3 version of the DS1 - a software upgrade for the DS1-MK2:

  • Independent parameter control in the two channels
  • M/S mode selectable
  • Sidechain link on / off switchable
  • Peak / RMS sidechain processing
  • Factory Presets programmed by Mr. Bob Katz
  • 24 Bit POW-R dithering
  • DS1-MK2 snapshots can be loaded in
Users of the standard DS1 model (i.e. not the MK2) can upgrade by swapping the DSP board of their DS1 for a new one. This can easily be done by the customer.
The Weiss 102 Series split band De-Esser is one of the mastering industry's most highly praised digital products. Now Weiss engineers have taken their De-Esser design and combined it with the best features of the time proven 102 Series Dynamics Processors. The result is the Weiss Gambit DS1, a stand alone digital Dynamics Processor with unparalleled performance and sonic integrity.
In De-Esser mode the compression band is selectable as a lowpass, bandpass or highpass and extends the functionality beyond de-essing. The crossover filters are linear phase for the highest sonic quality. The full band dynamics processor with soft knee compressor and hard limiter is ideal for program loudness control.
  • Presets keys: let you select a bank of factory presets which can't be changed by the user, but which can be copied into normal snapshots and edited from there. Two banks of factory presets are given, de-esser type and compressor/limiter type.
  • Monitor key: Allows to listen to the filtered signal only, i.e. the one being processed by the dynamics section, facilitates the search for offending signals.
  • Bandsplitting: When touching "bandwidth" or "frequency", the soft keys will select which type of band (low, mid, high). The LEDs above the frequency knob show the current status. Frequency knob selects the corner / center frequency.
  • Attack, Release etc.: Attack, release delay and release fast/slow with averaging knobs make up a powerful yet easy to operate timing section for optimum sound treatment. The LEDs between the knobs light depending on the automatically selected release time.
  • Soft knee knob gives a variable soft knee characteristic (from no soft knee to very gentle). The LED above the knob lights if the input level is in the soft knee region. The LED above the threshold knob lights of the input level is above the threshold.
  • Gain makeup allows for zero gain makeup in DeEsser mode and for as much gain makeup as possible in the compressor/limiter mode. Touching the gain makeup knob assigns the softkeys to select the various modes.

Some noteable features:

  • Soft knee feature
  • Dual mode unit (DeEsser or Compressor/Limiter)
  • Oversampling sidechain
  • Oversampling audio path in Compressor / Limiter mode
  • Linear-phase band splitter
  • Overall delay controllable in multiples of video frames
  • Preview delay for early anticipation of level peaks
  • Graphical LCD with comprehensive metering and settings information
  • Metering of input level, output level, gain reduction
  • 128 snapshots with 2 times 128 snapshots backup
  • Each parameter MIDI controllable, MIDI dump of snapshots
  • AES/EBU input / output
  • The DS1 is absolutely bit-transparent as long as no gain reduction occurs - even in De-Esser mode.

User Testimonials

"The sound of the DS1-MK2 is impeccable. It is the most transparent, refined, flexible and least ”digital-sounding” dynamics processor I have ever used. It is indispensable; I use it on over 90 percent of my mastering projects."
Bob Katz, Digital Domain, USA (Read the whole review as pdf here)
"...The world's best De-Esser, made by Daniel Weiss in Switzerland, is digital, for instance...".
Bob Ludwig, Gateway Mastering, USA
" For "Neutral Digital", the only word in my opinion is Weiss. A VERY
powerful box. I use 2 of them together. One for low compression ratios, and the second as a peak limiter. Very musical and powerful."
Glenn Meadows, Masterfonics, USA
"The DS 1 is very smooth and transparent. It has none of the "edge" that seems to plague all other dynamics processors."
Ken Lee Mastering, USA
"Weiss is the best of all the digital compressors I've heard, nothing else comes close sonically."
Roger Seibel, SAE Mastering, USA
"I am happy to say that my facility Glenn Schick Mastering has released hundreds of CD's mastered with the DS-1. I LOVE this unit ".
Glenn Schick, Glenn Schick Mastering, USA
"The DS1 is already installed and already used for a week now and all I can say is that it is truly a piece of fine art and technology. Simply put: my customers love it and I enjoy the improvement in sound and flexibility I already have. I can't wait to get the ADC1".
Carlos deAndrade, Visom Digital, Brasilia
"We own 21 different high end analog and digital compressors. They all work very differently. It seems like after spending some time with each you can eventually find what you are looking for. For ease of operation and getting something cool quickly its hard to beat the Weiss for digital or the Vari-Mu for analog."
Bernie Becker, Bernie Becker Recording, USA
"The Weiss DS-1 is the best de-esser I've ever heard. It's digital, of course, but at 24/96, the output is pretty close to the input."
Brad Blackwood, Ardent Mastering, USA
"The soft limiter setting of the Weiss DS-1 is just exceptionally good indeed. I use a much shorter release than the preset though. Really outstandingly good."
Goran Finnberg, The Mastering Room AB, Sweden
"I am completely delighted by this machine [The DS1] and do intend to buy other products from Weiss in the future."
Robert Fix, Italy
"The DS1-MK2 is extraordinary. The sound has a richness and ease of listening that is not approached by any other device in my experience."
Alan Silverman, Arf! Digital, USA
".....well I've had the DS 1 for just over a week and am totally amazed !!! I read the manual (even though engineers aren't supposed to read manuals) and found the information there very helpful. Manual aside, the DS 1 is very intuitive and within minutes of instillation I was able to navigate easily and get great results. I'm not sure how I ever worked without it."
Doug Milton, Cyberella Studios, USA
"If you're looking for "invisible", this mode of the Weiss is the place. As a parallel compressor (underline "in parallel compressor" mode) the Weiss is virtually colorless. It is the MOST transparent compressor I've ever heard. I guess you could say that it has "no color", so don't come here if you looking for color. It is designed to subtly and transparently boost low level signals.
In many cases it does this better, easier, and more efficiently than any human being with a fader can do. An amazing box. I've devoted about 3 pages of my book to how to do parallel compression as invisibly as possible and the Weiss has the most flexibility to do this well, plus with its 40 bit-float Sharc chip, it does it with incredible precision and purity of tone."
Bob Katz, Digital Domain, USA
" This box is the best upward expander, the best de-esser, and the best parallel compressor. Anything else I have in its place is audibly inferior for one reason or another."
Bob Katz, Digital Domain, USA
"Right now i use the weiss DS1 mkII compressor. Once you go Weiss, you never
go back."
Michael Fossenkemper, TurtleTone Studio, USA
"We recently bought a used DS1 and have upgraded it to MKII, and as with all of your designs, it's a stellar piece of gear. Not only does it sound amazing and do amazing things, but the consideration for the user interface is equally amazing. Doug was showing me the automatic ranging of the display so that the full range of action of the piece is always visible in just the right amount of detail. It's that kind of thought that makes the difference between greatness and "just another box". Thanks for upholding that level of quality.
Clete Baker, Studio B, USA
"The way I handled the track that needed high end but also contained a harsh, slightly distorted vocal was to find a "sweet spot" in the Weiss DS1-Mk2 that miraculously (literally) picked on the vocal without much touching the track. It was a very powerful solution, you could listen to and watch the Weiss picking on those harsh vocal peaks while the brass, percussion and keys were clear and open. Attack and release on the Weiss were critical."
Bob Katz, Digital Domain, USA
"I'm betting that anyone doing a shootout blind or not will agree with me that nothing comes close to the Weiss [DS1-MK2]. I do not get any endorsements from Weiss for this statement and these are my own personal opinions. It hurts me to say that I think that something is the "best' and that another brand is not as good if I generally like the products from the other brand. But in this case, I believe the Weiss is such a clear winner as to be worth the praise."
