File under cult stuff! Plugin developer Acustica Audio just announced their upcoming release: ‘El Rey’ – Greg Wells’ signature compressor plugin – born from the collaboration with Studio DMI and multiple Grammy nominated musician, songwriter and record producer Greg Wells, who has crafted hits for everyone from Adele, Dua Lipa, the music from The Greatest Showman film, Keith Urban, Deftones and Katy Perry.
El Rey is inspired to the iconic RCA BA-6A compressor (you can read about it here). The plugin will be available as a AU/VST/AAX plugin for use with any major DAW.
Greg Wells will give an exclusive sneak preview of the plugin at the Mix With The Masters booth at AES International Pro Audio Convention in New York, Thursday – Oct.18, 2018 at 2:00 pm local time.
Official release date and price are yet TBA. They’re hoping to have it released by Black Friday, Nov. 23, and it will definitely cost less than the $7500 it would cost to buy a perfect condition RCA BA-6A!
