Los Angeles, CA (September 30, 2016)—At the AES Convention, Waves Audio has introduced the Abbey Road Vinyl plug-in, which aims to provide the “vintage warmth” of vinyl by modeling Abbey Road Studios’ vinyl cutting and mastering gear.
Designed in collaboration with Abbey Road Studios, the plug-in reproduces every stage of the vinyl production and playback process, allowing users to choose between the sound of a pure acetate (lacquer) cut or the print master vinyl pressing from the factory; play the records on two distinct turntable types with a choice of three classic cartridges; and add the TG12410 mastering console on the path into the vinyl lathe.
In an effort to faithfully reproduce the vinyl experience, the plug-in lets users move the location of the virtual tone arm across the record, changing the frequency response and distortion as happens with a physical record.
Users can also add vinyl noise and crackle, apply a gradual slow-down/stop turntable effect, and add wow and flutter effects.
