The TDM plug-ins can run on Digidesign Venue consoles using the Waves D-Show Enabler. Current Waves TDM users can purchase the D-Show Enabler, making their Waves products fully Venue-compatible.
The Hybrid Line aims to provide the color and character of classic analog hardware processors with the features and flexibility of digital plug-ins. The first two products in the Waves Hybrid Line are the H-Comp Hybrid Compressor and the H-Delay Hybrid Delay. H-Comp is a brand-new dynamics processor that offers the modeled behavior of transformers, tubes, and transistors, while H-Delay provides slap-back echo, ping-pong delay and tempo-sync with modulation, to filtering, flanging, phasing and more,
Part of the Waves Jack Joseph Puig Collection, the PuigChild 660 & 670 Compressor/Limiter was created by Waves in close partnership with multiple Grammy-winning producer/mixer Jack Joseph Puig. Throughout the vinyl era, the original Fairchild stereo 670 compressor and its mono counterpart, the 660, were used on dozens of classic records. From the recording studio to the record lathe, the Fairchild was renowned for its advanced compression techniques and incomparable sound. With the PuigChild Compressor/Limiter, Waves aims to capture every nuance of Jack Joseph Puig’s personal vintage Fairchild 670.
Asher Bitansky, Waves Director of Business Development and a key supervisor of the Live Division, stated, “Waves Live Division is dedicated to providing performers and live sound engineers the same high-quality processing tools found in Waves’ studio bundles. The PuigChild and the Hybrid Line have proven very successful plug-ins for a wide variety of studio users, and represent the ongoing commitment by Waves to create tools enabling new levels of creativity and control to the Live sound mixer.”
