1. SSL G-Master Buss Compressor

by: Waves

 
SSL G-Master Buss Compressor
 

Based on the renowned master buss center compressor of the SSL 4000 G console, the Waves SSL G-Master Buss Compressor captures the unique sound of the original’s IC input and twin VCA gain-reduction amplifier design. Prized by top engineers for its ability to “glue together” tracks, the SL 4000 G master buss center compressor is ideal for taming piano dynamics or adding punch to drums and percussion. Now, the ultimate finalizer that transforms a mix into a finished record can be yours – in the box.


2. CLA-76 Compressor / Limiter

by: Waves

 
CLA-76 Compressor / Limiter
 

Inspired by two highly-desirable revisions of the famed mid-60s Class A line level limiting amplifier, both versions of the CLA-76 (“Blacky” and “Bluey”) offer the superfast attack (as quick as 50 microseconds!) that made the originals studio legends. With an exclusive “ALL” control that recreates the original’s explosive “All-Ratio-Buttons-In” mode, plus modeled pre-amp distortion for that extra edge, the CLA-76 delivers some of the most powerful drum sounds imaginable.


3. Infected Mushroom Pusher

by: Waves

 
Infected Mushroom Pusher
 

Created with leading electronic music duo Infected Mushroom, Pusher is an innovative multiband sonic enhancer and limiter/clipper that delivers Infected Mushroom’s “secret mixing sauce.”

Pusher brings together high-end processing and Infected Mushroom’s decades of mixing experience to give you enormous possibilities for boosting frequencies, enhancing sounds, and mastering full tracks for any genre or style. Whether you’re preparing your music for a release or to play out in clubs, you can use Pusher to add grit to your drums, add brightness to your instruments or push your whole mix to the max – all in a matter of seconds. Pusher is also low-latency, so you can freely use it in the studio or live on stage.

Pusher can be used on individual sounds, on busses/groups, or for mastering:

  • Low – Enhance low frequencies and choose where the processing begins based on note or frequency. Perfect for getting kicks and bass instruments to drive through the mix.
  • Body, High – Enhance the mid and high frequencies
  • Magic – Excite and boost the dynamics of all frequencies at once. Good to use on drum groups or full mixes
  • Stereo Image – Widen the stereo image of higher frequencies
  • Push – Push your mix to the max by clipping or limiting. Perfect when mastering.

A Word from Infected Mushroom:
“We wanted to combine our mixing and mastering tricks that we’ve been working on for 20 years into one plugin. Pusher will make almost anything sound better in a matter of seconds”.


4. dbx® 160 Compressor / Limiter

by: Waves

 
dbx® 160 Compressor / Limiter
 

Considered one of the best drum compressors ever, the original dbx® 160 stands tall among its peers, boasting a very clean sound with minimum THD. The fast-acting dbx® 160 compressor was used in almost every major recording in the late ‘70s and throughout the ‘80s, and later models in the 160 series also became industry standards.

Created in collaboration with dbx®, the Waves dbx® 160 compressor / limiter plugin is an authentic-sounding software version of this storied piece of hardware. In addition to its meticulous modeling of the vintage compressor, the Waves dbx® 160 plugin incorporates unique and exclusive features not found in the original hardware, such as Waves’ MS Matrix, mix and noise controls, and a stereo component. The result is a must-have compressor / limiter for use in the studio, live, or both.

“To get closer to the realism of live performance” has been a goal of dbx® since the company’s inception in the 1970s. This goal has come full circle with the Waves dbx® 160 compressor / limiter plugin, which enables you to achieve stunning realism in the studio or to add nuance to an actual live performance.


5. Smack Attack

by: Waves

 
Smack Attack
 

Add smack and bite to drums, loops, synth hits and all percussive sounds by designing the level, shape and duration of their transients’ attack and sustain – from surgical tweaks to savage effects.

The first attack, initial hit or onset of a sound is known as its ‘transient.’ By controlling the exact level, shape and duration of these sounds, you can give your tracks the perfect tightness and dynamics they need, in ways that a compressor can’t always do.

With Smack Attack, you can unleash or tame kicks, snares, claps, drum samples, or any other drum or percussion instrument – but also guitar and bass plucks, quick piano arpeggios, synth stabs, or even your entire mix.

Unlike traditional transient shapers, Smack Attack lets you control more than just attack and sustain levels; you also get pinpoint control over the transients’ shape and duration. You can make a kick tighter than you’d ever imagined – or give your snares that extra crack. You also have a Sensitivity control for selective transient shaping: you can process all your transients, only the loudest ones, or anything in between.

With a user-friendly GUI, plus zero latency in the studio and live, Smack Attack will let you go sensitive or aggressive on your transients, design the perfect pulse in your tracks, and make every hit count.


6. Torque

by: Waves

 
Torque
 

Enhance the tone of snares, toms, kicks or an entire drum kit in your mix, with natural-sounding results that no regular pitch-shifter will allow.

The key to a great-sounding mix is rooted in the tonal balance of the drums. Yet, as mixers, we don’t always get hit with drums that were perfectly tuned or recorded.

Torque is a precision drum tone shifter that will help you salvage mistuned drums, pitch them to a specific key and enhance their tone – without retriggering or replacing, without the artifacts introduced by traditional pitch shifters, and without losing body, timbre, resonance or attack.

Driven by Waves’ Organic ReSynthesis® technology, Torque detects and analyzes the drums’ formant, amplitude and carrier information, reassembles it, and allows you to manipulate the tonal and pitch characteristics, all while preserving the natural attack, resonance and duration of the original sound.

With intuitive controls and zero latency, Torque is perfect for the studio as well as for live shows, where FOH engineers can now have the luxury of re-pitching problematic drum tone mid-show or even mid-song.


7. Kramer PIE Compressor

by: Waves

 
Kramer PIE Compressor
 

Developed in association with legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer, 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 plugin features a meticulously modeled VU meter with superfast refresh rates that recreates the accuracy, sensitivity, and ballistic behavior of a physical analog meter.


8. Kramer HLS Channel

by: Waves

 
Kramer HLS Channel
 

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.


9. CLA Drums

by: Waves

 
CLA Drums
 

Chris Lord-Alge on CLA Drums: “One of my favorite activities is to work on drums. When creating the CLA Drums plugin, I had one thing in mind: Anyone who uses it can get a great drum sound for any song and any mix and just have fun! There are six different modes: Kick, Snare, Toms, Overheads, Room and, of course, my favorite, Cowbell. There are three color-coded presets for bass EQ, treble EQ, compression, and reverb, plus a noise gate so you can even get rid of leakage. The faders let you control the amount of each effect and, especially important for drums, we’ve included a phase switch so you can find the best setting for the kit.”


10. Trans-X

by: Waves

 
Trans-X
 

Perfect for breathing new life into drum loops, accentuating or attenuating instrumental attacks, and modifying room acoustics, Trans-X is a revolutionary processor that shapes transients and revitalizes individual tracks and full mixes.
