Waves releases Scheps 73 equalizer plugin

Waves Scheps 73

Waves has launched Scheps 73, an equalizer effect plugin based on the Neve 1073 equalizer and mic preamp.

Developed in association with world-renowned mixing engineer Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele, Black Sabbath, Lana Del Ray, Jay-Z), the Scheps 73 plugin is a colorful 3-Band EQ modeled on the classic 1073 console’s EQ and mic preamp module.

Empowered by Waves cutting-edge technologies, the Scheps 73 EQ features interrelated bands that adhere to the 1073’s original specs and precisely emulate its behavior: a fixed 12kHz high-frequency band, switchable low and midrange bands with cut and boost controls, and an 18dB/octave high-pass filter. Additionally, for the first time ever, a little-known 10kHz midrange band discovered in the original 1073 schematics but operable only on the rare 1078 channel strip has been modeled and incorporated into the plugin. And to top it all off, the Waves MS matrix has been added to let you apply different equalization to mid and side stereo content.

Using innovative procedures to model the acclaimed Marinair transformer, Waves has meticulously captured all the sonic characteristics of the 1073, including its harmonic distortion. These overtones were tweaked to perfection by Andrew Scheps himself, resulting in beautiful and authentic saturations.

The Scheps 73 is currently on sale for $99 USD in Native formats (regular $149 USD). It is also available for Soundgrid, priced at $225 USD.

Toontrack Metal Amps for EZmix 2

Toontrack has announced the release of Metal Amps EZmix Pack, a new expansion library for the EZmix multi-effect mixing tool for Windows and Mac.

This collection comes with 50 guitar and bass tones based on IRs and modeling of some of the most well known high gain amps and speaker cabinets of the past decades. All presets were custom-made by renowned engineer Jocke Skog and designed to cater to a broad use spanning all the fragmented genres in classic and modern metal.

“After having spent 20 years looking for the perfect guitar tone and recorded IRs for as long as I can remember, I have a pretty good idea where to start, what to avoid and what to look for. I am confident that anyone into thrash, death, black, djent or any type of metal in between will find several tones that sound absolutely right.”

The pack focuses primarily on rhythm guitar and bass tones. Each setting comes with a set of user-adjustable parameters, allowing you to add more or less of its unique characteristics to tweak and customize the preset into your own custom sound.

The EZmix pack is available to purchase for $49 USD / 39 EUR.
