Anaheim, CA (January 27, 2006)–Waves, in association with legendary guitar maker Paul Reed Smith, announced GTR 2.0, the latest version of its hardware/software system for guitarists, at Winter NAMM last week. The new release follows the recent testing and certification of Waves GTR for proper operation under Pro Tools 7.
Waves GTR AMPPowered by the Waves/PRS Guitar hardware interface, the GTR system puts the “world’s best amps, cabinets, microphones and effects” right at your fingertips. The original version of GTR was released last year.
For GTR 2.0, Waves’ top engineers went “tone hunting” at Grammy award-winning producer Peter Dennenberg’s ACME Recording Studios in Mamaroneck, NY. What they “captured” is a major advance for GTR: The new version features three distinct new amps: Sweet, Cream and Overdrive. It also features seven new cabinets, hand selected and precision miked by Dennenberg from his extensive private collection of vintage gear.
GTR 2.0 additionally features an improved guitar tuner with sophisticated tracking that is even more accurate and easier to use.
Last but not least, GTR 2.0 is now compatible with Mac MOTU MAS host Digital Performer, and Windows Direct X including Cakewalk Sonar; Sony Media Software–Sound Forge, Vegas, Acid, CD Architect; Magix Samplitude; and Adobe Audition. Waves GTR 2.0 is also compatible with Pro Tools 7 on both Mac and PC.
