Waves is now shipping its NLS Non-Linear Summer, which delivers the sound of three classic consoles in one plug-in. To create NLS, Waves joined forces with three hard-working producer/engineers — Mark “Spike” Stent, Mike Hedges and Yoad Nevo — to model their rare mixing desks.
NLS recreates the sound of the “magical” solid state console belonging to Mark “Spike” Stent (Radiohead, Björk, Muse, Maroon 5, Madonna); the classic console owned by Mike Hedges (The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Dido, Faithless, Manic Street Preachers, U2), heard on such timeless recordings as Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon; and the British console customized for Yoad Nevo (Bryan Adams, Pet Shop Boys, Sugababes, Goldfrapp, Air).
In the creation of this plug-in, Waves modeled over 100 individual channels in all, painstakingly analyzing and recreating the distinctive color, character, and behavior of each and every input and summing bus amp. Waves NLS delivers to the digital realm the depth and richness that has long been associated exclusively with analog gear.
Features include non-linear summing enhancement; three legendary consoles in one plug-in; over 100 individually modeled channel and summing buss amp; analog warmth and character; global control over all NLS plugins in the session; and more.
Prices: $249 Native / $349 (Native and TDM, respectively)
