Knoxville, TN (November 15, 2016)—Waves Audio has shipped its new Waves Abbey Road Vinyl Plug-in, a model of Abbey Road Studios’ vinyl cutting and playback gear, created in collaboration with the famous London recording facility.
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 cartridges; and even send tracks through Abbey Road’s TG12410 mastering console on the path into the vinyl lathe.
The plug-in also allows users to move the position of the tone arm across the record, changing the frequency response and distortion like in the real world. Other features include the ability to add vinyl noise, pops and crackles, apply a gradual slow-down/stop turntable effect, and add wow and flutter effects for extra analog warmth.
The Abbey Road Vinyl plug-in is included in the Waves Abbey Road Collection bundle.
