Waves releases Element synthesizer plug-in

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 03, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Waves has announced the release of Element, a synthesizer instrument plug-in for Window and Mac.

Waves Element
Producer/engineer, and longtime Waves developer Yoad Nevo: Element provides fat sound right off the bat, but also has very comprehensive editing capabilities, which I used to create most of its presets.

Introducing Element: The first ever synthesizer from Waves. Powered by Virtual Voltage™ technology, Element is an analog-style polyphonic instrument engineered to deliver the fat, gritty sound of the classics, with all the precision, flexibility and control of contemporary digital synths.

Element includes a vast array of convenient features and functions. Like integrated effects. A 16-step arpeggiator / sequencer. MIDI Learn for all controls. And a massive preset library, with total tweakability. Plus, all parameters are laid out right there in front of you, so when inspiration strikes, there’s no need to scroll through page after page to customize your sounds. Searing leads, booming basses, ethereal pads, electro-percussion, sequential motions, mind-blowing FX and lots more: Element does it all.

Element for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD (regular $200 USD).

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.

  • Automatic adaptive real-time noise suppression.

Waves releases PS22 Mono to Stereo Enhancer Native Effect Plug-in

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 14, 2012 - comment 2 comments

Waves has announced that its PS22 Stereo Maker effect plug-in is now available in Native formats.

Waves PS22

PS22 StereoMaker is a set of tools for creating convincing stereo results from mono source material as well as a set of true stereo-in/stereo-out processing tools for synthesizing a richer stereo effect from existing stereo material.

It is far more than merely another “pseudostereo” effect. It is a mixdown and remastering tool capable of producing subtle or dramatic stereo effects of a kind and quality previously impossible – something that will become an essential tool in everyday stereo production of all kinds.

The idea of synthesizing a fake stereo effect from mono sources is a very old one, but the results have usually been disappointing and very often virtually unlistenable, giving unpleasant and unconvincing results. StereoMaker’s tools are unique, and have been designed after decades of research to avoid the problems of previous processes.

PS22 features

  • 3 components: PS22-Spread, PS22-Split, and PS22-XSplit.
  • Psycho-acoustic spatial enhancement and phase-compensation.
  • Retains mono compatibility.
  • Preserves original frequency response.
  • Left/right or MS meter monitoring.
  • Up to 24bit 192kHz resolution.
  • Mono-to-Stereo and Stereo components.
  • PC and Mac compatible.

PS22 Native is available to purchase for $99 USD. The plug-in is free to users of selected Waves bundles.

Plugin Alliance adds USB flash drive activation to licensing system

Plugin Alliance has announced it has added flexible and convenient USB flash drive activation to its licensing system as of July 13th, 2012.

Plugin Alliance USB flash drive activation

Aside from its growing family of unsurpassed effects plug-ins — meticulously modelling high-end hardware from the likes of Brainworx, Mäag Audio, SPL, and Vertigo Sound, Plugin Alliance has always prided itself on its easy-to-use licensing system (using a single file to manage all licenses for activation on up to three computers)… clicking Activate when launching a new plug-in for the first time downloads a new license file to the computer in question from the Plugin Alliance server. Couldn’t be simpler, surely?

Simpler, no; more flexible, maybe. Now the Plugin Alliance activation system is even more flexible, offering users complete freedom to roam by transferring their licenses and plug-in installers to a single standard USB flash drive requiring only one USB port — unlike most other proprietary USB-based licensing systems.

A USB flash drive can be used to run Plugin Alliance plug-ins on other computers without having to activate those specific machines beforehand; plug-ins can be quickly copied onto different computers (or Avid’s VENUE live sound production systems) on a temporary basis before being deleted with no need to deactivate the computer (and/or console) afterwards, making it a perfect solution for touring FOH engineers or recording engineers who regularly work in different studios.

What’s more, Plugin Alliance has rigorously tested its new ‘roaming’ license system with Waves’ License Center-based equivalent while Waves did likewise; both companies are happy to report that users can use the same USB flash drive for their Plugin Alliance and Waves plug-ins and license files without interfering with each other. Simply perfect.

Imagine the convenience of being able to take your complete Plugin Alliance plug-in collection wherever you like, whenever you like, all on one single standard USB flash drive. Well, there’s no need to imagine anymore.

Wherever you may roam… plug in to your new Plugin Alliance production or recording home!

Waves launches NLS Non-Linear Summer

Waves NLS

Waves has released its NLS Non-Linear Summer, offering the sound of classic consoles in a plug-in.

Waves, together with three of today’s top producer / engineers, is proud to present the NLS Non-Linear Summer: Three legendary consoles – in one powerful plugin.

  • The “magical” solid state console belonging to Mark ´Spike´ Stent (Björk, Muse, Maroon 5, Madonna).
  • The classic console owned by Mike Hedges (The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Dido, Faithless, Manic Street Preachers, U2), heard on such timeless recordings as Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon.
  • The vintage British console customized for Yoad Nevo (Bryan Adams, Pet Shop Boys, Sugababes, Goldfrapp, Air).

Waves modeled over 100 individual channels in all, capturing the unique color, character, and behavior of each and every input and summing bus amp.

Say goodbye to cold digital tracks that lack depth and harmonic complexity, and say hello to the richness and warmth that only analog gear could deliver – until now.
