22nd January 2014

Waves has released two new plug-ins and a plug-in bundle:

WLM Plus Loudness Meter is the next generation of the WLM Loudness Meter plugin. It brings anticipated enhancements, and features new correction and adjustment tools.

WLM Plus Loudness Meter provides precision loudness measurement, metering, correction and adjustment tools for broadcast, movie trailers, games, packaged media and more. Fully compliant with all current ITU, EBU and ATSC specifications, the WLM Plus offers comprehensive Momentary, Short Term, Long Term and True Peak readouts, as well as a unique warning and logging system that keeps track of your levels, alerting you when you've exceeded them - or fallen short. WLM Plus also features Gain and Trim controls for correction of loudness levels and a True Peak Limiter, which save you the need to utilize additional equipment or software. Ideal for content creators, post production houses and cable head-end facilities, WLM Plus is an affordable, all-in-one cross-platform, multi-format loudness metering software solution.

Price: $400 Native / $600 SoundGrid. WLM Plus is available at no additional charge to all WLM owners who have valid coverage under the Waves Update Plan.

Dugan Automixer is a software version of the popular Dugan Speech System Automatic Mixing Controllers used the world over. It was developed in association with renowned pro audio inventor Dan Dugan.

Incorporating Dugan's proprietary voice-activated process, the Dugan Automixer plugin automatically controls the gains of multiple microphones in real time, dramatically reducing feedback, studio noise and comb filtering from adjacent microphones. It maintains a consistent system gain, even when multiple speakers are talking simultaneously, and makes perfectly matched crossfades, without any signal compression, and without a noise gate that may cause unwanted sonic artifacts.

Available for virtually any console, the Dugan Automixer is a solution for broadcast news panels, talk shows, houses of worship, film and television dialog recording, and any other discussion panel or conference scenario involving multiple microphones and participants.

Price: $500 Native / $750 SoundGrid.

Morgan Page EMP Toolbox contains the nine powerful Waves audio processors that Morgan Page uses most in his mixing and mastering sessions, ideal for electronic music producers of every shade of the spectrum.

From chart-topping powerhouses like Katy Perry and Madonna to industry darlings Tegan & Sara and Icona Pop, Morgan Page has been called upon by every brand of hit-maker to paint their songs with new colors and sounds for the club scene.


Price: $599 Native. Special Intro Price: $449.
