1. Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain

by: Waves

 
Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain
 

A modular mastering chain plugin modeled after the EMI TG12410 Transfer Console used in all Abbey Road’s mastering suites since the early ’70s to this day. Use the Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain to create custom processing chains with a flexible flow and the TG magic on the master bus, or on individual tracks/groups in a mixing session.

The distinct solid-state transistor-based sound of the TG12410 has proven itself time and again over many decades. Whether it’s used for mastering as a complete console, or for mixing with only select modules, the TG brings nothing less than magic — the same magic heard on albums like Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, Nirvana’s In Utero, Radiohead’s OK Computer and Ed Sheeran’s “+”. Thanks to this Waves/Abbey Road collaboration, the TG12410 is available outside of Abbey Road Studios and you can now bring the very same magic to your own productions.

Just like the original console, the TG Mastering Chain plugin is made out of modules (or cassettes):

  1. TG12411 Input Module
  2. TG12412 Tone Module (EQ)
  3. TG12413 Compressor/Limiter Module
  4. TG12414 Filter Module
  5. TG12416 V.A.L (Spread) Module (stereo component only) incorporated into the Output Module.

Modules can be interchanged (except for input/output modules) and switched on/off to allow for a flexible processing flow and creating custom chains. Individual modules can be used on different tracks and group buses in a mixing session, as well as on the master bus in mastering sessions.

The compressor/limiter module offers two flavors — Original and Modern — and is coupled with 48 dB/Oct linear-phase sidechain filters to help you take complete control over your sound.

  • Original — aggressive and “dirty” just like the ’70s and exactly how we modeled it.
  • Modern — an original Waves and Abbey Road design based on the TG topology, that will help you get pristine sound with higher levels of perceived loudness.

Alongside the TG Mastering Chain is the Meter Bridge component (separate plugin), offering a new approach to metering. Open one Meter Bridge component on any channel and get access (via drop-down) to all Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain instances in the session. Get a clear reading of VU, PPM, Phase and Peak at a glance, and stay focused on the music.

With different processing modes (Stereo/Duo/MS) and monitoring modes (Stereo/Mono/L/R/M/S), the Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain plugin is truly a powerful tool. Use it in the studio or for live sound with a dedicated Live component.


2. CLA-2A Compressor / Limiter

by: Waves

 
CLA-2A Compressor / Limiter
 

Modeled on the legendary electro-optical tube compressor, the CLA-2A emulates the original’s smooth, frequency-dependent behaviors that have made it a favorite of engineers everywhere. Like the mid-‘60s classic, the CLA-2A sounds great on guitars and bass, and really shines on vocals. Top it all off with Chris Lord-Alge’s personal presets, and seemingly limitless instantiations, and you’ve got a model that surpasses its inspiration.


3. L2 Ultramaximizer

by: Waves

 
L2 Ultramaximizer
 

For mixing, mastering, and more, the L2’s legendary combination of look-ahead brickwall peak limiting, level maximization, and ultra high resolution give you the power and extra gain you need with crystal-clear results every single time.


4. L1 Ultramaximizer

by: Waves

 
L1 Ultramaximizer
 

Advanced level maximizer, look-ahead peak limiter and high-resolution re-quantizer, all in one powerful industry-standard plugin for mastering and mixing.

Waves 25th Anniversary edition: You can now choose between the classic Legacy and the new Modern user interfaces. Both offer new plugin features, including:

  • True Peak domain setting: Eliminates inter-sample clipping
  • Automatic Release Control: Auto-adjusts release time

Renowned for its transparency and punch, L1 has been the standard tool used on countless hit recordings over the past couple of decades.

L1 maximizes both the level of the digital signal and the resolution of the final file. It offers superb re-quantization for all bit depths, including 24, 20, 16, 12, and 8-bit outputs. Its look-ahead peak limiter enables you to increase sound file resolution and production master levels with precise control and dithering options.

L1’s limiter section is capable of a very fast, overshoot-free response. Because a typical music signal contains many high-intensity, short-duration peaks, simple normalization of the file may result in a low average signal level. L1 can significantly increase the average signal level of an audio file without introducing audible side effects.


5. L3 Multimaximizer

by: Waves

 
L3 Multimaximizer
 

When top mastering engineers sit down behind the board, they need to enhance frequency response and maximize levels while protecting the fidelity of their sources. That’s where the L3 comes in: The world’s first auto-summing multi-band limiter for all-in-one mastering.


6. MV2

by: Waves

 
MV2
 

With high and low level compression controlled by a streamlined interface, the MV2 is the simplest, most flexible way to control your sound. With intuitive dual faders for quick dynamic optimization, it’s never been easier to maximize your volume.


7. L3-16 Multimaximizer

by: Waves

 
L3-16 Multimaximizer
 

Presenting the most advanced member of Waves’ acclaimed L-Series: the L3-16 Multimaximizer, a 16-band peak limiter delivering unparalleled loudness with unprecedented control. Powered by Waves patented PLMixer™ Peak Limiting Mixer technology, the L3-16 maximizes your sound with pinpoint precision and breathtaking detail. With a wide variety of sonic flavors ranging from analog warm to digital cool, no matter what genre, no matter what sound, you’ll stand out from the crowd, loud and clear.


8. MaxxVolume

by: Waves

 
MaxxVolume
 

The very first plugin of its kind, MaxxVolume performs all essential dynamics processes in one convenient tool. Combining technologies from Waves’ acclaimed L2 Ultramaximizer™, C1 Parametric Compander, Renaissance Vox, and Renaissance Compressor, MaxxVolume is ideal for mixing and mastering as well as broadcast and post-production, perfect for voiceovers, vocals, and instrumental tracks.


9. BSS DPR-402

by: Waves

 
BSS DPR-402
 

Long favored by studio, live and broadcast engineers, the BSS® DPR-402 dynamics processor is known for its punch, versatility, and the explosive sound it delivered on countless rock, dance and hip-hop hits since the 80s.

Working in association with BSS Audio, Waves has now modeled this long-unavailable unit, bringing back its diverse functions and sounds, and adding new features for extra flexibility and ease of use.

BSS DPR-402 can be used as a straightforward compressor, limiter or de-esser. But it really shows its colors when these processes are combined, and when it is used to selectively process individual parts of the audio band, leaving the rest of the spectrum untouched. The endless possibilities range from low-frequency expansion and narrow-band compression to general dynamic equalization to create surprising enhancement effects.

Waves has also added five features unique to the plugin: an MS matrix to separately process the mid and the sides, a Mix control to balance the processed and unprocessed signal, a Noise control to add or remove the modeled noise of the original unit, a Gain Reduction control, and an option for separate L/R metering.

Together, these varied options give you a uniquely flexible tool for dynamic control, with a wealth of possibilities for you to explore.


10. eMo D5 Dynamics

by: Waves

 
eMo D5 Dynamics
 

5-in-1 Multi-Dynamics with Parallel Detection

The first plugin to use Waves’ groundbreaking Parallel Detection technology, Waves eMo D5 delivers the power of five state-of-the-art dynamics processors—Gate, Leveler, DeEsser, Compressor and Limiter—in one easy-to-use interface.

Maximum Clarity

Thanks to Waves’ Parallel Detection technology, each of the five processors responds to the original signal and to each of the other processed signals simultaneously. This lets you instantly control the total dynamic change introduced by the different processors, ensuring that your final sound achieves maximum clarity without over-compression.

eMo D5 also provides a combined gain reduction meter for the Leveler, Compressor and Limiter, making it even easier to monitor and control your levels.

Maximum Efficiency

eMo D5 is a Swiss army knife for your dynamics. With its single-page GUI, you’ll be able to set up a dynamically balanced mix with maximum efficiency, saving tremendous amounts of time by not having to open and tweak different dynamic plugins.

Use It Anywhere

With its zero latency, low CPU consumption and pure sound quality, eMo D5 is a natural for both live and studio engineers.
