Waves Audio releases H-Reverb Plugin and updates V9 Plug-ins to r27


Waves Audio is now shipping the Waves H-Reverb plugin, a reverb based on algorithmic FIR (Finite Impulse Response) reverberation technology, providing rich, deep reverb tails that "sit beautifully in the mix while breathing crisp air into your tracks".

The FIR engine that powers H-Reverb lets you shape and customize the reverb decay envelope beyond the standard linear forms, resulting in perfectly gated, real reverse, and dense reverb tails that don't muddy up the mix. Taking things one step further, H-Reverb incorporates Waves' advanced analog modeling along with a drive control, offering signal behavior that until now was found exclusively in high-end hardware reverb devices. This unique design also enables input drive, a technique favored by many top engineers.

To top it off, H-Reverb includes a library of artist presets from the industry's leading mixing engineers (including Toni Maserati, Brad Divens, Daniel Green, Dave Darlington, Dave Stagl, James Ebdon, Ken "Pooch" Van Druten, Kevin Madigan, Pete Keppler, Ross Hogarth and Yoad Nevo, to name just a few). Their personal settings may be the perfect space you're looking for, or simply the perfect point to start from.

Additional features include:

  • Impulse-variable resonant filtering for creating unfamiliar and advanced reverb effects.
  • EQ and dynamics module for compression, ducking and de-essing.
  • ADA analog modeling and drive control for input clipping.
  • Full buildup timing and shaping.
  • Pre-delay BPM sync.
  • Artist presets from the industry's leading mixing engineers.
  • Support for full 5.1-channel surround setups.

Price: Regular $349; Intro: $199.
