I can't say too much about the installation process of the Waves Ltd. Renaissance Compressor as it was already installed on the machine at the studio that I have used it on.  There haven't been any compatibility issues or any other problems with it really that I know about.  The interface of the software isn't hard to follow at all and it only took me a few minutes to understanding everything that is going on here.  In terms of parameters you have sliders for threshold, ratio, gain, attack and release, which is pretty much the five standard parameters that are seen on most compressors. I've never seen the manual for the Waves Ltd. Renaissance Compressor plug-in so I can't say too much about it, but I don't think that one is necessary because of how easy the interface is to follow.


I've never had any problems running this plug-in and I have been able to run a bunch of them within a single session if I want to.  I use the Waves Ltd. Renaissance Compressor on an Apple G5 that runs with a Pro Tools HD system and this system is definitely enough for me to be able to run this plug-in effectively.  Even if you have Pro Tools LE I think that if your computer is fast enough that you generally shouldn't have a problem with running this plug-in as it won't take up much processing power. 


I've been using the Waves Ltd. Renaissance Compressor for about two years and it is definitely a nice compression plug-in.  Waves is known for making some of the best plug-ins out there as they are realistic sounding, which is the case with this one.  While it isn't my favorite plug-in compression out there, I do find myself using it a lot as it has a certain sound that makes it good for drums and guitars amongst other things.  The price isn't bad and is a great deal if you buy this within the Renaissance bundle.  If you are in the market for a nice compression plug-in that won't break the bank, I would definitely recommend looking at Waves Ltd. Renaissance Compressor.
