KNOXVILLE, TN, September 21, 2010 — Waves Audio, the world’s leading developers of professional audio signal processing technologies, announces the C6 Multiband Compressor.

With four crossover bands plus two additional floating bands and a flexible sidechain feature, the C6 is an essential solution for vocal and instrument shaping, offering de-essing, de-popping, feedback management and more, giving users all the multiband compression and dynamic equalization they need to control, tame and shape their sound. more

Bad Acoustics Ignored with the PhantomFocus System

— Turnkey Monitor Tuning Protocol Provides World Class Performance Even in Nightmare Acoustic Environments —

Nashville, TN: Continuing the trend of the engineer / producer / musician / songwriter needing his or her own studio, Nashville’s Kyle Lee (Michael W. Smith, TobyMac) accepted an invitation to become part of a larger studio complex that housed several other artists, engineers and producers. The space he was given was a former overdub booth that would be his control room. The list of egregious acoustic anomalies included a small lopsided cone-shaped room; a commercial dropped ceiling; and only high frequency absorption with a little foam in two corners. “No matter what positioning I tried with the speakers, the center imaging was vague and I just couldn’t find any low end,� says Lee, “even though my monitors were spec’ed to go down to 45Hz. I used a small subwoofer and that just confused the issue, adding a one-note bass quality to the sound.�

Enter Carl Tatz Design (CTD) and the PhantomFocus™ System monitor tuning enhancement protocol that was able to essentially ignore the room problems. “I love tough rooms like this because the transformation is so dramatic,� explains Tatz. more

— 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
