— Affordable and easy-to-use, W43 is inspired by the classic Cat. 43 hardware noise reduction tool —

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, August 16, 2010 — Waves Audio, a leading provider of digital signal processing solutions, unveils the third processor in the Waves Post Production line, the W43 Noise Reduction Plugin. Inspired by the classic, long-out-of-production Cat. 43 hardware noise reduction tool, Waves’ new W43 builds upon the legacy of this hard-to-find unit that has been a post production favorite for decades. Ambient noise like hiss, hum, traffic noise, wind and air conditioning can all wreak havoc on a dialogue track, but with the Waves W43 plugin, they’re a thing of the past. The W43 delivers high-quality, minimal artifact multiband noise reduction like the original hardware, while adding all the advantages of software.

Waves W43 offers easy-to-use four-band noise suppression controlled by four faders, a global threshold and an “engage� button. The W43’s workflow approach and interface will be very familiar to engineers who perform noise reduction using the Cat. 43. Both PC- and Mac®-compatible, W43 supports multiple simultaneous instances and features true Pro Tools integration, full recall, zero latency, full automation, up to 24-bit, 192kHz resolution, and support for TDM, RTAS, Audio Suite, VST and AU. Also, no degradation of sound resulting from I/O conversion occurs. more
