1. Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter

by: Waves

 
Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter
 

Modeled on one of only a few tube-powered units ever made, the Waves Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter® plugin delivers all the unique character of the rare original hardware unit, with all the advantages of software.

When it was originally introduced in the mid-1970s, the Aphex Aural Exciter brought its distinctive sound to select sessions by leading recording artists, traveling from studio to studio as an exclusive (and expensive) rental unit.

A true groundbreaker, the original Aural Exciter was highly regarded for its ability to increase and enhance presence, brightness, and vibrancy on vocal and instrumental tracks alike. It was even credited as a “session player” on best-selling albums by the likes of Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor, engineered by Val Garay, who worked closely with us on the development of the plugin.

CLA Epic
 

Mix with Epic Depth: Complete Reverbs & Delays by Chris Lord-Alge

Add epic depth to your mixes and productions: The complete suite of mix legend CLA’s 4 go-to delays and 4 go-to reverbs, based on his best studio gear – all in one plugin that lets you blend, layer and internally route the effects.

Studio legend Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Muse, Bruce Springsteen) is a master at creating epic space and dimension in every song. And now he is giving you the key to that depth: his entire suite of reverbs and delays, in one epic plugin.

CLA Epic features Chris’s 4 go-to delays (SLAP, THROW, TAPE, CROWD) and 4 go-to reverbs (PLATE, ROOM, HALL, SPACE). All modules are based on Chris’s settings for his favorite studio hardware, which he uses in various combinations in every one of his mixes.

Whether used on vocals, drums, synths, guitars or other instruments – CLA Epic opens the gate to more depth in your mixes and productions.

Blend Reverbs & Delays the CLA Way

The key to CLA’s depth of sound is the way he blends multiple effects creatively – sending multiple delays to multiple reverbs on each track, and controlling the exact blend with his console faders.

CLA Epic gives you all these rich possibilities in one plugin. You can now blend CLA’s most epic reverbs and delays in the same creative manner. No need to open different effect plugins to get a rich landscape of sound: At any time, you can activate any or all of CLA Epic’s 8 effect modules, and blend them easily using the plugin’s console-type faders.

To make things even easier, CLA Epic always loads with Chris’s default settings for each effect. You can go deep and tweak all the familiar parameters (as well as some surprising ones). But first, simply load the default modules, blend in the different effects, and hear CLA magic in action.

The Secret to Depth: Send Delays to Reverbs

Chris Lord-Alge has an extra secret for mixing with depth: he sends his delays to his reverbs, so that the delays become part of the overall sonic landscape.

CLA Epic lets you send any delay to any reverb, in addition to the option of running the effects in parallel. With the click of a button, you can choose to send each delay only to the Output, only to (any or all of) the reverbs, or to everything at once. Effects routing that would take hours in your DAW now takes seconds.

Over 350 Epic Presets to Get You Started

CLA Epic comes packed with 50 powerful presets by Chris himself – for your vocals, drums, guitars and keyboards. Not enough? The plugin also includes over 300 presets by Greg Wells, Michael Brauer, and dozens more top producers and engineers.


3. H-Reverb Hybrid Reverb

by: Waves

 
H-Reverb Hybrid Reverb
 

New technologies open new creative horizons. H-Reverb is a pioneering FIR reverb based on innovative Finite Impulse Response reverberation technology, providing richer, deeper reverb tails that sit beautifully in the mix while breathing crisp air into your tracks.

The FIR engine that powers H-Reverb lets you shape and customize the reverb decay envelope beyond the standard linear forms, resulting in perfectly gated, real reverse, and dense reverb tails that don’t muddy up the mix. Taking things one step further, H-Reverb incorporates Waves’ advanced analog modeling along with a drive control, offering signal behavior that until now was found exclusively in high-end hardware reverb devices. This unique design also enables input drive, a technique favored by many top engineers.

To top it all off, H-Reverb includes an impressive library of artist presets from the industry’s leading mixing engineers, as well as presets inspired by vintage and modern classics. These presets may be the perfect space you’re looking for, or simply the perfect point to start from.

By fusing classic reverb concepts with forward-thinking features that break new ground in digital reverb processing, H-Reverb provides uncompromising sound quality and boundless creative control.


4. Reel ADT

by: Waves

 
Reel ADT
 

Waves/Abbey Road Reel ADT is the first plugin to successfully emulate Abbey Road Studios’ pioneering process of Artificial Double Tracking. The effect that would become an integral part of Abbey Road’s signature sound was initially created at the famed studios in the 1960s to meet the needs of some very special clients: The Beatles.

Reel ADT puts the magic of that era in your hands within seconds. Using its intuitive controls, you can advance or delay the doubled signal to achieve genuine, lush-sounding delay and pitch variations. You can also drive each of the signals separately to add beautiful tape saturations.

With its authentic modeled valve tape machine sound and faithful emulation of wow and flutter, this extraordinary plugin can enhance any track with the impression of two separate takes, giving you results as close as possible to real double tracking. Other classic Abbey Road tape effects such as flanging and phasing can also be achieved with ease.

All the character, depth and panoramic sound of this inimitable classic effect can now be created digitally, simply and for real: Reel ADT.


5. Abbey Road Reverb Plates

by: Waves

 
Abbey Road Reverb Plates
 

State-of-the-art modeling of the four legendary reverb plates housed at Abbey Road Studios and used on recordings by the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Radiohead.

Introduced in the 1950s, plate reverbs have been a fixture of recorded music ever since. Used most prominently in the ‘60s and ‘70s by pioneering bands, including the Beatles and Pink Floyd, Abbey Road Studios’ original reverb plates were first installed in 1957 to complement the fixed reverberation times of the studios’ echo chambers. These beautiful-sounding plates, with a variable reverb time of up to six seconds, were then tweaked to perfection by Abbey Road’s technical engineers. To keep noise to a minimum, EMI’s Central Research Laboratories designed unique hybrid solid-state drive amps for Plates A, B and C. Plate D was fully valve-powered on both drive and output stages, allowing a versatile array of sonic characteristics, from warm and dark to lush and smooth.

In each of these original plates, the stereo reverb effect is created by suspending a large sheet of metal with tensioned springs attached to each corner. A transducer injects the metal sheet with audio energy, which is picked up by two contact mics fixed to the surface of the plate. The reverb time can then be adjusted by using an internal damper, and all of this is contained within a large wooden unit.

These historic Abbey Road plates have been used on countless seminal pop, rock, classical and film recordings over the years, and continue to be used in all kinds of audio production to this day. Waves has now created meticulous models of these stunning and unique-sounding units, individually modeling the harmonic distortion of both the drive and output amps as well as the individual plate/damper behaviors.


6. Abbey Road Chambers

by: Waves

 
Abbey Road Chambers
 

From beautiful natural chamber reverb to surging delay cascades, the rich sounds of the legendary Abbey Road Studio Two echo chamber are now at your fingertips, complete with Abbey Road’s long-lost S.T.E.E.D. setup.

The Abbey Road Chambers plugin recreates a defining part of the studios’ legendary sonic signature – the echo chamber used by Abbey Road’s pop engineers to create exciting reverbs, delays and other unique spatial effects on countless classic recordings by the Beatles and beyond.

Developed together with Abbey Road Studios, Waves’ Abbey Road Chambers puts you at the controls of the Studio Two echo chamber, complete with the original valve Neumann KM53 microphones and Altec 605 speaker, as used on almost every pop recording done at Abbey Road during the 60’s.

Abbey Road Chambers also gives you an additional set of the original filters going into the chamber – EMI’s RS106 hi/low pass filter and the EMI RS127 Presence EQ – to further sculpt the perfect chamber sound.

Also featured is a complete recreation of Abbey Road Studios’ original S.T.E.E.D. (Send. Tape. Echo. Echo. Delay.) setup – a system designed to extend the chamber’s natural sonic palette into new territories, by splitting the signal and creating a feedback loop from the studio’s REDD console, through a dedicated tape delay, via RS106 and RS127 filters, and then to the chamber and back.

As a bonus, the plugin also includes two additional legendary spaces: Abbey Road’s famed Mirror Room, and the Stone Room from Olympic Studios, London.

Abbey Road Chambers is designed in a modular fashion: You can send your tracks just to the chamber, or you can isolate just the S.T.E.E.D. effect, or you can combine both for the full range of sonic possibilities opened by the original Abbey Road setup.

From natural chamber reverb, to authentic tape delay, to complex hybrid effects – the door to the one-of-a-kind vintage acoustics of the Abbey Road chambers is finally open.

Modulate for Signature Vocals

Open up Vocal Bender’s trunk to access musical modulation features. With a few clicks you’ll add vibrato, pitch drops, sequenced pitching, and more endless possibilities to the two knobs. These will bring a musicality and movement to your sound, and help you differentiate your style. Start bending your vocals.


9. Scheps Parallel Particles

by: Waves

 
Scheps Parallel Particles
 

Discover new tone shaping possibilities with the signature sound of Grammy®-winning producer/engineer Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele, Metallica, Jay Z, Black Sabbath, Lana Del Rey).

“This plugin is about attitude, energy and emotion,” Andrew says. “You can find the sound you want, without having to figure out which of the traditional tools will get you there. It is as much an attitude shaper as a tone shaper, so you can focus on how you want your tracks to feel.”

Scheps Parallel Particles captures Andrew’s masterful know-how and experience in the form of four simple-to-use controls, each of which represents one of Andrew’s go-to mixing processes:

  • Sub is a harmonic generator that creates lows and adds sub frequencies that were never there before. By working more with resonance than EQ, it’s a great way to create a presence in the low end without things getting out of control.
  • Air focuses on those elusive air frequencies and brings them to the forefront. Like Sub, it is a harmonic generator which creates innovative resonances that do not exist in your source. Traditional EQ can sometimes magnify unwanted noise or artifacts; but this control circumvents this issue by synthesizing the top end from existing lower frequency material.
  • Bite is designed to create sonic vitality and emotion. It controls the front ends of the notes (those that reach your ear first), but it also has a big impact on the release. It can be used on anything to make your sound more aggressive. A singer will sound more energetic, a snare drum will have more attack, a bass guitar will sound more present, and so on.
  • Thick adds solid body to the signal, evening out the lower mids and midrange, creating a feeling similar to that of a microphone being a little bit closer, or the room ambience being darker.

Separately, these controls work in very different ways to shape the vitality of the sound. In combination, they can really let you dig in and make huge changes in a subtle way.


10. Abbey Road Saturator

by: Waves

 
Abbey Road Saturator
 

Musical analog saturation & distortion from the legendary Abbey Road Studios: The sound of classic tubes and transistors, driven hard from subtle to extreme, and excited by the ultra-rare EMI TG12321—a secret weapon of Abbey Road engineers.

Saturation is the heart and soul of analog recording and mixing—from the subtle soft clipping of a tube preamp, which adds warmth and pleasing harmonics to a drum or vocal part; to full-blown console distortion that makes a synth, bass or guitar part ‘sing’ in the mix.

Modeled directly from time-proven saturation chains at Abbey Road Studios, Abbey Road Saturator provides inspiring saturation and distortion unlike any other device. The plugin offers two versatile desk distortion flavors: the crunchy tube REDD sound, and the rounded solid-state TG12345 tone—with the sophisticated input, gain and output stages of both consoles calibrated to perfection by Abbey Road’s engineers.

But it doesn’t end here. Abbey Road engineers were known to experiment endlessly with the wealth of original EMI gear at their disposal—pushing the equipment to its limits and reaching “happy accidents.” Abbey Road Saturator captures the very happiest of such accidents.

In 1962, EMI Central Research Laboratories patented a tape noise reduction system called the TG12321—a “compander” that compresses on input (encoding) and expands on output (decoding).

The first generation of pop engineers at Abbey Road discovered that using the encode-only part of the process resulted in a beautiful high-frequency emphasis that added air and excitement and helped instruments cut through the mix: a secret weapon in the studio. Pioneering Abbey Road engineers, including Peter Bown and Geoff Emerick, were fans of using the TG12321 is this unusual way.

Abbey Road Saturator models the original TG12321 unit, feeding into the REDD or TG desks, for a one-of-a-kind excited saturation effect.

The plugin also gives you flexible control over the Compander’s crossover frequencies, allowing it to focus in on different ranges depending on the source material: lower settings will be at home on bass and kick drums, higher values will afford unmistakable shine to vocals. The added phase knob causes the saturation to work in parallel, dramatically altering the personality of the distortion harmonics.

Abbey Road Saturator also sports unique M/S processing, letting the distortion apply either in stereo or to the mid or sides separately. Activate this beast on drums, drive the centered kick and snare into beefy levels, and leave the sides (overheads and cymbals) clean and sparkling.

From subtle harmonic enhancement that helps any instrument poke through a mix, to powerful distortion effects that strip an instrument of its original character and create an entirely new beast—Abbey Road Saturator is a singular twist on what we know saturation and distortion plugins to be.
