Waves EMI TG12345

Waves and Abbey Road Studios bring to life the legendary TG12345, the first-ever solid-state console from EMI which epitomized the sound evolution of the late ’60s and early ’70s and helped shape groundbreaking recordings by the Beatles, Pink Floyd, and many others.

Thanks to meticulous component modeling, the Waves/Abbey Road EMI TG12345 channel strip plugin captures every celebrated feature of the one-of-a-kind original console: the input mic preamp, down to every last detail of its harmonic distortion, hum and noise; the bass and treble EQ bands from the mic cassette; the presence EQ band from the console’s group/main section; the lush-sounding spreader; and to top it all off, the console’s famous compressor/limiter, with its distinctive, irresistible sound.

EMI TG12345 features

  • Developed in association with Abbey Road Studios.
  • Based on the legendary TG12345, the first solid-state console from EMI.
  • A complete modeling of the entire TG12345 channel strip.
  • 3-band EQ with continuous gain and frequency.

Garrian XFX Concert Grand

MakeMusic and Abbey Road Studios have announced the release Garritan Abbey Road Studios CFX Concert Grand, a new virtual piano instrument.

To create this new instrument, Yamaha’s flagship CFX Concert Grand piano was recorded in Abbey Road Studios’ historic Studio One by renowned engineers, blending the latest technology with legendary equipment and acoustics.

“We are very pleased to announce that we have released the CFX Concert Grand,” said Gary Garritan, MakeMusic director of instrumental sciences. “This is the most detailed and advanced project our team has completed. We are honored to have this partnership with Abbey Road Studios, and the support of Yamaha, and are excited about the enthusiastic reaction this virtual piano has received so far. Today we’re proud to make an instrument with this kind of power, richness and clarity available to everyone.”

Garritan Abbey Road Studios CFX Concert Grand provides users three discrete microphone perspectives:

  • Classic – captures the natural tonal character, clarity and nuance of the CFX.
  • Contemporary – produces a bright and brilliant sound with definitive attack from the hammers.
  • Player – delivers the unique experience of playing from the piano bench in Studio One.

The CFX Concert Grand includes the powerful ARIA player, and is designed to be a perfect addition to music notation-based programs, like Finale, as well as to all sequencers and digital audio workstations.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Gary and the MakeMusic team on the CFX project,” said Mirek Stiles, head of audio products at Abbey Road Studios. “The ability to mix both close and ambient signals, as if you are in Studio One, is simply breathtaking. This beautifully sampled instrument is worthy of the Abbey Road Studios name.”

The CFX Concert Grand is available for purchase for $299.95 USD.
