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.
  • Includes TG12345’s famous compressor/limiter.
  • Modeled on the actual desk used by the Beatles on their album Abbey Road.

The plug-in is available for purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD (Native) / $149 USD (Soundgrid).

Waves has introduced the Abbey Road REDD Consoles Plugin, an emulation of the REDD consoles of Abbey Road Studios.

Waves REDD.17/37.51
Abbey Road REDD.17 & REDD.37-.51 console emulations by Waves.

London’s Abbey Road Studios were at the epicenter of a seismic shift that rocked the world of music during the 1960s, and changed the course of popular culture forever. The Beatles, The Hollies, Pink Floyd and countless other luminaries made musical history at Abbey Road Studios, trailblazing a revolution that resonates to this day.

And at the heart of it all: The REDD consoles, custom-designed, built by and named for Abbey Road Studios’ in-house Record Engineering Development Department. Renowned for their silky smooth EQ curves, extraordinary warmth and lush stereo imagery, there’s something magical about the REDDs that sound like no other console.

Waves meticulously recreated the color, character and tonal complexity of the original desks: The REDD.17 which still belongs to Abbey Road Studios, and the REDD.37 console now owned by Lenny Kravitz. The result is an impressive pair of plugins that deliver the dimension, depth and richness of these console classics.

REDD features

  • Based on the legendary REDD.17, REDD.37 and REDD.51 consoles.
  • Delivers the classic British sound of the 1960s.
  • Continuous EQ controls.
  • Developed in association with Abbey Road Studios.

REDD is available for the introductory price of $199 USD (regular $349 USD). REDD.17 and REDD.37-.51 are Native and SoundGrid compatible. REDD is available separately as well as in Waves Mercury, SoundGrid® Pro and SoundGrid® SD7 Pro bundles.

EMI announces David Bowie ‘Golden Years’ App

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Apr 04, 2011 - comment 0 comments

EMI Music has announced the David Bowie ‘Golden Years’ App for iOS.

David Bowie Golden Years App

Following the release last year of the David Bowie ‘Space Oddity’ EP Application, on June 6th EMI will release the ‘Golden Years’ App, and Golden Years remix E.P. on CD, 12″ & Digital Download.

Ever keen to push the boundaries and pioneer technology, Bowie has, once again, afforded his fans the unique opportunity to access original multi-tracks, allowing them to become remixer and create their own version of ‘Golden Years’, only this time they’ll also be able to share their remixes with friends.

Fans can make their remixes, using eight stems (bounced down from the original 16 tracks), featuring Bowie’s lead vocal, 12-string guitar, bass, drums, guitar, harmonium, percussion (including blocks, congas, claps) and backing vocals. Additionally, they can SHAKE the player (see Notes to editors), which allows for random track selection and “shuffles” track mixes. History is made here for you to discover, remix, and enjoy with friends. The stems for this App were specifically created by ‘Golden Years’ and Station To Station’s original producer Harry Maslin.

This is a revolutionary experience for music fans to recreate their own versions of one of popular music’s most iconic songs.

To coincide with the launch of the App, EMI will release a ‘Golden Years’ E.P. – available on CD, 12” and digital download – featuring the original single version and four brand new remixes of the track created by DJ’s Jeremy Sole, Anthony Valadez, Eric J Lawrence, and Chris Douridas from the US radio station KCRW. These remixes will be exclusive to this E.P. As Station to Station was recorded in Los Angeles, it was fitting for some of KCRW’s leading tastemakers to take on the task. Each DJ took a unique path in recreating, deconstructing or re-imagining the classic song.

Golden Years app features

  • Multitrack view of the original song.
  • Activate / deactivate stem tracks.
  • Change stem tracks volume.
  • Create and save your own mix.
  • Export your mix as an mp3.
  • “Shake to mix”: launches a random mix every time you shake your iPhone.
  • Play/Pause/Repeat.
  • Share with friends.

The Golden Years app for iOS will be available June 6th, 2011.
