Waves releases Eddie Kramer HLS Channel and PIE Compressor

Waves HLS Channel

Waves has announced the release of HLS Channel and PIE Compressor, two new effects modeled in association with Eddie Kramer.

Developed in association with legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer, the HLS Channel was meticulously modeled on a Helios mixing console just like the one he used in historic sessions at London’s acclaimed Olympic Studios. (In fact, we actually managed to get our hands on the Helios from the Rolling Stones mobile truck, which was used on a slew of classic recordings during the early ‘70s.) In addition to modeling the Helios EQs with their sweet saturation, high-end presence, and fat low-frequency boost, we even modeled the unique behavior, coloration, and drive of the console’s preamps. To top it all off, the HLS Channel features a precision-modeled VU meter that recreates the sensitivity, ballistic behavior, look and feel of the original.

Eddie Kramer HLS Channel features

  • Modeled Mic & Line preamp drive.
  • Analog noise & hum for added realism.
  • EQ bypass mode.
  • Up to 24bit 96kHz resolution.
  • Mono and Stereo components.
  • Supports TDM, RTAS, Audio Suite, VST, AU.
  • PC and Mac compatible.
Waves PIE Compressor

The PIE Compressor was precision-modeled on a vintage Pye compressor like the ones he used in historic sessions at London’s acclaimed Olympic Studios.

A mainstay in esteemed British studios throughout the classic rock era, the original Pye processors are considered by many to be among of the best buss compressors of all time. The Waves PIE plug-in features a meticulously modeled VU meter with superfast refresh rates that recreates the accuracy, sensitivity, and ballistic behavior of a physical analog meter.

Eddie Kramer PIE Compressor features

  • Analog noise & hum for added realism.
  • Compression and limiting modes.
  • Auto-makeup gain.
  • Up to 24bit 192kHz resolution.
  • Mono and Stereo components.
  • Supports TDM, RTAS, Audio Suite, VST, AU.
  • PC and Mac compatible.

The HLS Channel and PIE Compressor plug-ins are available to purchase in native formats for $300 USD each, in TDM format for $600 USD each, or bundled for $450 USD Native / $900 TDM.
