1. 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.


2. Kramer Master Tape

Kramer Master Tape
 

Developed in association with Eddie Kramer, the Kramer Master Tape plugin is modeled on a rare vintage 1/4″ reel-to-reel machine. With adjustable tape speed, bias, flux, wow & flutter, and noise parameters, the Kramer Master Tape provides comprehensive control over the contours of your sound. And to top it off, we’ve added a flexible slap & feedback delay, ideal for rock, dance, dub, you name it. For recording, mixing, mastering, and more, bring the richness and warmth of real tape saturation to your DAW with the Kramer Master Tape plugin. It’s the reel deal.


3. PRS SuperModels

by: Waves

 
PRS SuperModels
 

Created in collaboration with Paul Reed Smith, the Waves PRS SuperModels plugin superbly models three high-end PRS guitar amps: the coveted PRS Archon, the legendary PRS Dallas, and the ultra-rare PRS Blue Sierra/V9.

Easy to use, with remarkable tones right out of the box, these models authentically replicate every component of the three exquisite amplifiers. From tubes to circuitry, every detail was painstakingly modeled part by part, using Waves’ Precision Analog Component technology, with Paul Reed Smith himself supplying Waves with the original amplifiers and the full schematics.

PRS Archon delivers shimmering cleans or aggressive overdrive; push it harder and you get glorious distortion. With its lush gain, the Archon is ideal for lead or crunching rhythm, while also offering a clean channel that players of all genres will appreciate.

PRS Blue Sierra/V9: Never-before-released even in its hardware form, this ultra-rare amp was an early original format for the PRS J-MOD 100. Evocative of boutique American guitar amps, it is equally great for clean sounds and for medium-gain overdrive tones. No matter the setting, you’ll find it easy to get a big 3D sound and hard to get a bad one.

PRS Dallas provides the sounds of classic American reverb amps. The all-tube design produces an open classic tone for huge-sounding cleans, or multiple variations of overdriven sound with natural-sounding reverb. Originally designed by chief PRS amp designer Doug Sewell, this highly musical amp offers sweet highs, solid lows and beautiful mid-range tones.

Different speakers and speaker cabinets produce different sounds. PRS SuperModels lets you choose from 8 different speaker cabinet IRs (audio snapshots of speaker cabinets), captured by Paul Reed Smith at his personal home studio using his proven microphones and mic preamps. As a bonus, you can add any of your favorite third-party IRs – up to two simultaneously.

The plugin’s innovative Phase Fix and Time Fix controls will automatically correct any phase or latency issues between the different IRs. The Smart Mix control will balance the perceived volume of IRs when you use two cabinets. An IR browser will automatically load and switch the IR, leaving you free for playing.

Each amp boasts three more helpful features not included in the original hardware amps: a tone-shaping boost for when you need that vital extra push that normally comes from a boost pedal; a digital tuner for both standard and extended-range guitars; and a smart noise gate that senses at the input and gates at the output.

With three boutique amplifiers to choose from, PRS SuperModels places countless tone options at your fingertips. Whether you are playing rock, jazz, country, metal, blues or any other genre, this exquisite amp plugin suite will cover all your guitar-playing needs.


4. API 550

by: Waves

 
API 550
 

Modeled on the late 1960’s legend, the API 550A EQ provides reciprocal and repeatable equalization at 15 points in 5 steps of boost, divided into three overlapping ranges. Its high and low frequency ranges are individually selectable as either peaking or shelving, and a band-pass filter can be inserted independently of all other settings.

The 550B, with its renowned four overlapped EQ bands, is invaluable as both a problem solver and a sweetening device. With 7 switchable filter frequencies spanning up to 5 octaves per band, the 550B’s “Proportional Q” automatically widens the filter bandwidth at minimal settings and narrows it at higher settings. It even lets you undo previous processing, affect or even reverse tonal modifications. With their vast range of tonal possibilities, the API 550A and 550B are a pair of versatile EQs with that one-of-a-kind API sound.


5. Bass Rider

by: Waves

 
Bass Rider
 

Bass Rider is an innovative, easy-to-use plugin that rides bass levels automatically. A companion to our popular Vocal Rider plugin, Bass Rider delivers perfect bass levels, without changing the natural sound of your bass. Optimized especially for the frequency range and envelope characteristics of bass instruments, Bass Rider covers all the basses: DI, amplified, acoustic, synth, upright—you name it.

A real timesaver with dedicated studio and live components, Bass Rider keeps bass levels in check and solid throughout your mix. Unlike a compressor, Bass Rider works note by note, without disturbing their inner dynamics, so they sustain and decay naturally. Best of all, since Bass Rider keeps your levels steady with automatic gain adjustment, now you can focus on the feel and flow of your bass—and use compression to add color and character.

With Bass Rider, you’ll never mix bass the same way again.


6. Bass Slapper

by: Waves

 
Bass Slapper
 

The most elaborate and realistic-sounding slap bass plugin ever created, allowing you to create all the nuances and articulation of a seasoned bass player.

Slap bass is one of the most popular styles of bass playing. Over the years there have been many attempts to sample the sound and recreate it as a virtual instrument, but nothing has come close to the sound of recording a great bass player who has mastered this technique.

Until now.

Waves Bass Slapper lets you recreate on your keyboard the realistic nuances of a dexterous bass player, with complete control over every note and articulation, including thumbing, popping, hammer-ons, pull-offs, open strings, legato sounds and dead notes.

Bass Slapper includes the world’s most extensive sample library of special bass guitar sounds, with slides, left- and right-hand mutes and harmonic strums. The instrument’s intuitive position and articulation controls let you determine precisely where to play on the fretboard, when to switch strings, which strings to thumb or pop, and more.

For endless tonal possibilities, Bass Slapper features studio-grade stompbox effects, detailed tone controls from vintage warmth to modern punch, and your choice of clean DI or authentic amp sounds.

From funk and soul to rock, hip hop, metal and beyond, Bass Slapper puts convincing slap bass sounds at your keyboard-playing fingertips, anytime, anywhere.


7. CLA Guitars

CLA Guitars
 

Chris Lord-Alge on CLA Guitars: “Two words describe the CLA Guitars plugin: Instant Gratification. Every time I plug in my axe, I just can’t stop playing! It delivers the guitar sounds I’ve used on tracks from Green Day to Daughtry, quickly and easily. It’s like a guitar toolbox with all the necessary combinations. The plugin features three modes—Clean, Crunch, and Heavy—with DI and Re-amping modes for each. You get three colorcoded presets for the six most important effects, for the perfect blend of bass, treble, compression, reverb, delay, and chorusing/doubling.”


8. GTR Solo

by: Waves

 
GTR Solo
 

GTR Solo delivers the sound of real amps, cabs, stomps, and mics—in your computer. Just plug in, fire it up, and experience precision models of amplifiers by Fender®, Marshall®, Vox® and others. Then take it to the next level with awesome distortion, modulation, and ambient effects. These are the same GTR sounds top guitarists, producers, and engineers are using on their most important tracks.

Your guitar. Your computer. And GTR Solo. It’s all you need to take the lead.


9. CLA Unplugged

by: Waves

 
CLA Unplugged
 

Chris Lord-Alge on CLA Unplugged: “CLA Unplugged is a dream box of reverb effects plus great hi-res EQ and compression for complex sounds. I always loved the Aerosmith ‘Dream On’ vocal reverb with the really long pre-delay. And I wanted a plugin that you could also put on strings, piano, acoustic guitars, and nylon guitar solos. This plugin was designed to give you limitless reverb and delay possibilities, and the smoothest EQ curve around.”


10. Manny Marroquin Distortion

Manny Marroquin Distortion
 

Manny Marroquin on the MM Distortion: “One of the things I also love is distortion. Whether or not it’s audible, sometimes I just want to feel it. By adding just a touch of it, it will help get me that. And I’m not just talking just about guitars, either. A little bit of distortion on vocals, Rhodes, Wurlis, etc. can really add a lot of attitude and edge. So whether you like it ‘crunchy-style’ or ‘down-and-dirty,’ this Distortion is a simple but very effective plugin.”
