Renaissance Collection

Renaissance VOX combines compressor, limiter and gate functions to bring vocals and solo instruments to the front of the mix while pushing out unwanted noise. Renaissance Bass refines Waves popular MaxxBass technology to allow bass frequency extension through speakers with limited low frequency response. Renaissance DeEsser is the next generation DeEsser offering a unique Adapative Threshold that provides a more unified DeEssing and more natural sounding results.

Why C4 Multiband Parametric Processor

The new standard in Multiband. Pure innovation, with 4 band up and down expansion, limiting, compression, plus dynamic and standard EQ. Now with 48bit double precision, dithered to 24-bit output for TDM, and support for RTAS and AudioSuite too.

Waves C4 is the ultimate no-compromise multiband, hardware or software. No menus, tiny screens, or confusing interfaces. Craftsmanship in DSP without compare. Total integration of controls, with instant gratification.

Waves began with the Renaissance Compressor design, perfect for a multiband implementation. Connected to this heart of the C4 is an all new crossover designed with ideal phase characteristics for powerful control while remaining transparent.

Highly different functions in each band can be performed simultaneously, all with continual visual feedback from the Waves DynamicLine interface. Compress the lows, expand the low-mids, EQ the upper-mids, and limit the highs, all at once. The combinations are staggering and give you the ultimate in dynamic tonal control. You can even uncompress an over-processed signal (not that this would ever happen in the audio industry).

Pure control of exceptional sound, without compromise. Wavee realized the dream for you, now listen to the C4 for yourself.

Why Waves Renaissance Reverberator

Renaissance Reverberator: Classic sound and controls for the demands of everyday production, Waves new reverb is just the new flavor you're looking for. Designed to be musical, not technical, Renaissance processors have clean and simple interfaces that are ultra functional with minimal clutter. The Renaissance Reverberator is the newest addition to the series, and is as easy to use as any classic processor with just a few straightforward controls and simple interfaces. It features rich reverb tails, plus a second generation early reflection system, providing density and texture.

- Designed to be musical, not technical, Renaissance
- Compressor has a clean and simple interface, rather than an emulation of hardware controls.
- Renaissance Compressor - the answer to all your mastering or submix compression needs.

Waves Renaissance Equalizer

Vintage EQ for rich, clear equalization. If you have a slightly dull or flat track, during final mastering you can tweak the edges and really breathe some life into it. Waves innovative standard functions allow simultaneous multi-parameter adjustment, so if you design a filter-curve that you like, you can select all bands and adjust them all together while maintaining the curve.

Attention native users: The new REQ provides warm and clear vintage-style EQ on native PC and Macintosh applications. It includes real-time graphing, preview, bypass functions and all with just a few intuitive clicks. Slick controls and great classic-style EQ sound make REQ the equalizer your audio deserves. All REQ functions can be performed using your computer's CPU power, i.e. no extra hardware is required.

Waves L1 Ultramaximizer

The world's most popular digital limiter. The L1-Ultramaximizer from Waves combines look-ahead peak limiting with advanced requantization. This gives maximum level and highest resolution for all audio applications, from CD mastering to multimedia. L1 can be used as a mono or stereo limiter, with or without IDR processing, as well as the 'original' L1.

Waves MaxxBass

Push the low-end capabilities of your speakers to the maximum. Creatively add bass harmonics to extend perceived bass response. For mastering or mixing, MaxxBass delicately sharpens the bass without blurring other musical instruments. MaxxBass patent pending technology takes your bass to the maximum on more speaker sizes, from any source, by adding a series of harmonics to the signal. These harmonics stimulate a psychoacoustic bass-enhancing effect - a phenomenon that small speakers rely on to play audible bass. MaxxBass simply maximizes this known acoustical phenomenon.

Thus bass frequencies are greatly enhanced without traditional EQ or bass compression. Taken to the extreme, you can actually remove the original bass signal completely and the ear will still "capture" the fundamental from the added harmonics.

Employing dynamic graphics and a simple user interface, MaxxBass allows you to creatively add specific harmonics to bass signals.

MaxxBass helps you hear better bass on all speakers, from your full-range to your laptop. Whether for mastering enhancements or site-specific mixing, your ears will perceive an amazing low end.

Q10 ParaGraphic EQ

Now 88.2/96kHz-ready for many native platforms. The world's most powerful equalizer, even used by other designers to design their EQs. 200+ audio effects and processes in the setup library, from SuperNotches to precision mastering. The Q10 provides precision control of equalization from subtle adjustments to extreme complex filters. Ideal for any aspect of audio production. Q10 works in mono/stereo, and with 1 to 10 bands of equalization.

S1 Stereo Imager

True Blumlein shuffling, MS/LR procesing, four unique stereo-image tools, unequaled anywhere. The S1 is a unique set of tools for remastering stereo mixes by enhancing and altering the stereo effect, designed for whenever the best stereo effect from a stereo track, mix or recording is required for mixing, mastering or remix applications.

Benefits of S1

- Enhances stereo spatial effect
- Remixing and rebalancing existing stereo mixes for remastering
- Retains mono compatibility
- Avoids phasiness effects
- No alterations of tonal quality; no unwanted added effects
- Simply brings out what is already there in the stereo mix
- S1 Features
- 88.2/96kHz-ready for many native platforms
- Spatial-enhancement using psycho acoustic shuffling process
- Width alters size of stereo image
- Rotation alters level-balance without affecting center channel sound
- Polarity and channel swap for correcting stereo errors
- Intuitive stereo vector display shows effect of stereo alterations
- Left/right or MS metering for monitoring stereo effect
- Phase-compensation to avoid phasiness effects

Waves C1 Parametric Compander

The ultimate one band dynamic equalizer, and father of the C 4. Select any frequency range, then compress, expand, limit, or gate those frequencies. Simply an astonishing dynamic EQ, with phase compensation for transparency and quality.

The C1 is a frequency-selective dynamic processor allowing two simultaneous dynamic processes. It is an expert tool for any application requiring compression, expansion or gating. Select any frequency range, then apply a dynamic process to that range, or use as a traditional wideband device. C1 offers mono and stereo capabilities of the compressor and/or the gate. Now the C1comp and C1gate also offer 88.2/96kHz support.

Waves PS22 StereoMaker

The revolutionary 3rd-generation stereo-from-mono tool. Ideal for restoration, SFX, guitar leads, and more. Creates a rich and spacious stereo image from mono sources, and also enhances the spread of stereo sources. It can be used on single tracks of a mix, such as lead instruments or backing vocals, or for stereo enhancement of full mixes or old recordings.

PS22 is designed to avoid problems common with previous stereoization processes: it has virtually no unpleasant 'phasiness', very low coloration, high tonal accuracy, and good mono compatibility. These features makes the PS22 sound uniquely pleasant, natural, and free of listening fatigue. Unlike previous stereoizers, PS22 works not just on mono but also stereo inputs, spreading each and every sound in the mix about its original stereo position. This can be used to create a virtual acoustic reality where all sound sources have a size, and are no longer unnatural point sources.

The Waves PS22 interface provides controls allowing adjustment of specific sounds to be anywhere in the stereo image, plus an informative graphical display of position as a function of frequency.

Waves PS22 Benefits

- Enhances stereo spatial effect
- Remixing and rebalancing existing stereo mixes for remastering
- Retains mono compatibility
- Avoids phasiness effects
- No alterations of tonal quality; no unwanted added effects
- Simply brings out what is already there in the stereo mix

Waves PS22 Features

- Rotation alters level-balance without affecting center channel sound
- Polarity and channel swap for correcting stereo errors
- Intuitive stereo vector display shows effect of stereo alterations
- Left/right or MS metering for monitoring stereo effect

Enigma

Somewhat mysterious, totally innovative, Enigma is a completely new tool. Ideal for creation of creative filtering, it combines a complex notch filter system, short delay feedback loops, and modulation. Absolutely distinctive. Definitely Enigmatic.

Waves SuperTap

Six taps with up to six seconds of mono or true stereo delay. Each tap includes independent Q10-style filtering, rotation (stereo panning), gain, and precision time control. Global LFO modulation and 2 feedback modes greatly expand the possibilities. Waves unique Rotation control on the feedback section can make each repetition progressively shift through (and outside) the entire stereo image. Set either the tempo or pattern using the Tap Pad; set your delays using standard note values or milliseconds. Precision Ampex 440 head spacing delays, killer factory presets, etc. It's the Mother of Delays. (And Native users have the full 6 second delays *with* modulation).

Waves MondoMod

MondoMono is a very unique combo of linked modulators: AM, FM, and Rotation (stereo panning), for gentle wandering guitar solo panning or bizarre destructive effects, all in one plug-in. A single LFO drives all modulators with independent phase offsets between the modulator signals. Wacky, pulverizing, but still sensitive and totally unique, MondoMod throws a wrench into the works just when you need it.

Waves Doppler

Create real-time doppler effects, both realistic and "outside the box". Waves Doppler gives you auto and manual triggering modes, plus full control of air damping, panning, pitch, path curve, gain, start/stop points, and reverb tail.

Waves UltraPitch

An incredible formant-corrected pitch shifter with 6-voices (yes, *six*). All pitch shifting is done with optional formant-correction to avoid the old chipmunk effect, or for excellent gender-bending. Make a guy into a girl, or an alto sax into a tenor, etc. Each voice has independent stereo panning and delay, plus a little Animator delay-randomizer. Set the pitchshift by musical intervals (with 5 cent resolution), plus the formant mapping can be fully manual or you can use the presets that perfectly match instrumental formant responses. UltraPitch can create huge and thick stereo chorusing, doubling, parallel harmonies, excellent vocal slap/spread effects, and much more. The factory presets include classic setups for instruments, voices, plus some rather "outside the box" effects.

Waves MetaFlanger

MetaFlanger produces vintage tape-flanging, phaser-emulation, and special effects like no other flanger, ever. Create gentle choruses, sharp phasing effects and a variety of true dual-delay flanging sounds quickly. The wet signal includes filters so you can flange or phase just part of the signal (and they are FIR filters for absolutely perfect harmonic alignment). Wow. Harmonic Convergence in a plug-in. Also features phase inversions at all key points, extensive factory presets of vintage emulations (Mutron, MXR, Itchycoo Park) and more.

Waves TrueVerb

One of the best room emulations in existence, with exclusive distance control. Define the room, choose your seat.

TrueVerb from Waves, is a plug-in reverberation processor, which combines two separate modules - an Early Reflections simulator, and a Reverb - to produce a high quality, natural-sounding room effect. The user can define the room size, its decay time and frequency response, and, most uniquely, the distance (beyond the speakers) to the sound source.

A design driven by psychoacoustic research gives TrueVerb its very convincing, yet uncolored sound. TrueVerb is specially designed for the multi-channel mixing environment. It will not change the original signal's stereo image, and will not alter the perceived level balance of the mix. As with other Waves plug-ins, TrueVerb features a flexible and informative graphic interface with a wide range of controls, plus a comprehensive setup library.

Waves TrueVerb Benefits

- Creates more natural sounding rooms
- Will not distort stereo imaging information
- Will not alter mix balance
- Position sounds in space according to psychoacoustic rules
- Enhanced control over reverb characteristics
- Simple and persuasive control over sound distance illusion
- Informative & convenient interface
- Wide range of frequency characteristics
- Convenient storage and recall of setups
- New types of reverb sounds
- Allows for dense audio effects

Waves TrueVerb Features

- Low coloration reverberation and early reflection
- Stereo compatibility
- Constant perceived sound level
- Novel distance control
- Separate distance & reverb controls
- Linked distance & reverb mode
- Editable time response display
- Editable frequency response display
- New setup filing mechanism
- Space dimensional control
- Variational control

Waves DeEsser

Precision high frequency dynamic processor, modeled after vintage gear for fast, easy de-ess ing/HF limiting. Now 88.2/96kHz-ready for many native platforms.

Isolate and attenuate specific high frequencies

Can be applied lightly to a wide variety of mixes producing great sounding results. The ideal audio plug-in for attenuating high frequency 'ess' sounds - perfect for editing solo vocal takes and instrumentals. Using simple controls and dynamic graphic interface, either BandPass or HighPass SideChain filter-modes can be selected to isolate specific 'ess' sounds for attenuation. Factory presets are included for male and female voices, including wide and narrow focus for "ess" and "shh" sounds.

DeEsser's low CPU requirements make it super-quick and easy to use. It includes sharp filters in the SideChain, an energy detector hard knee compressor and a crossover filter. DeEsser features wideband or split audio-modes for attenuating either the entire audio or just high range frequencies.

Waves AudioTrack

'The ultimate tool...the essential track insert.'
- ProRec.com review

The original channel insert with 4-band, fully parametric, EQ, compressor, and gate, all in one space-saving window, now 88.2/96kHz-ready for many native platforms. This is ideal for multimedia producers, voiceover, project studios, and more. Unbelievably efficient on any system, with undeniable quality.

In the review on Prorec, Rip Rowan's 450MHz PII PC ran "80 bands of EQ, 20 compressors, and 20 noise gates. In real time on 20 solid tracks. No DSP used." Try the demo to prove it yourself. Listen to the quality. And what Rip didn't know is that AudioTrack has full 32-bit floating point accuracy (he thought it was just 16). Plus, we thank him for his challenge to sell AudioTrack separately. That is exactly what we are going to do.

AudioTrack's EQ is a true fully parametric 4-band EQ, with bell, shelf, and highpass/lowpass filters, all taken from the design of Waves's famous Q10 equalizer. AudioTrack's Compressor includes expander ratios, plus a "one-hand" Autogain feature. The noise-gate removes background noise from voiceovers and more. And as a cherry on top, AudioTrack has excellent factory presets for producers in a hurry (who isn't?).

PAZ - Psychoacoustic Analyzer

Realtime analyzer based on our hearing, shows 52 or 68 bands, with RMS, peak, weighting, variable integration time, and much more. Built on the math that the ear uses...See what you've been hearing.

Perfect for mastering, trouble-shooting, environmental analysis and more.

Includes a Stereo Position Display for evaluating the 'spread' of the source.
PAZ uses wavelet techniques (as opposed to FFTs) to provide users with optimal graphic accuracy. Individual bands update independently for the fastest response and consequently increased accuracy and resolution.

PAZ offers two distinctive real-time audio-analysis displays in addition to Peak/RMS metering:

1. A distinctive continuous-graph Frequency Display - showing 52 bands most closely resembling the ear's constant Q critical frequency bands.
2. A wavelet-based real-time analysis including RMS or Peak modes with dual channel or total-stereo-energy graphing from DC to Nyquist, and unweighted, C- and A- weighting modes.

Optional resolution in 10Hz steps can be shown for precise analysis below 250Hz for a total of 68 bands. The display can be zoomed into any area of the graph, all the way to -80dBFS. Level analysis can be saved to a text file.

Level meters include L/R peak and summed average (RMS) display, with individually re-settable peak hold values. For fast operation, you can select just the meter you need from Analyzer, Pan, or VU - either all together, or each separately.

The Stereo Position Display shows how energy is spread into the stereo field, including anti-phase information, all in an intuitive real-time vector display. This meter is unlike a phase meter, and can help you visualize the energy distributed in the stereo image. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Waves products.
This product requires an iLok USB Smart Key (not included) and internet access.

Waves Native Platinum Customer Review
Sound: Sounds amazing. Just love the L2. Very easy to use, makes average mixes (as all of mine are) sound great. Trueverb gets a big thumbs up as well. Value: This is the cadillac. Starting with the Native Power Pack, then going to Gold, and finally to Platinum (as I did originally) helped dampen the blow. Manufacturer Support: I have to say that I recently contact the company about getting my 4 year old version 4 working and Matt was extremely helpful even though I had no intention of purchasing any new products. The Wow Factor: This stuff is the best. Looks great, sounds great, stupid easy to use. Overall: The only issue that I may have is that new version seems to have slightly different names for the plugs. For example, "L2Ultramaximizer" instead of "L2-Ultramaximizer" or some such thing. This may make my old mixes problematic when converting.
