Waves

In honor of its 25th Anniversary, Waves Audio is now shipping revamped and reskinned versions of three of its classic plugins: the Q10 Equalizer, the AudioTrack channel strip plugin and the L1 Ultramaximizer level maximizer/peak limiter. These revamped 25th Anniversary editions include new plugin features, as well as a choice between two graphic user interfaces – the classic "Legacy" interface, and the new "Modern" interface created especially for the 25th Anniversary celebrations.

They are currently available for $29 each.

Q10 Equalizer
The first plugin by Waves, the Q10, is a multiband paragraphic EQ with up to 10 bands of precision equalization for mixing and mastering. It is a go-to tool for both surgical repair and gentle coloring. Each band offers six different filter types and complete control of gain, frequency and Q. And unlike most multiband equalizers, each Q10 band can use any filter type, so there is immense flexibility when shaping a signal. The Q10 offers extremely large Q values and large boosts and cuts, so you can fix and focus sounds that a conventional EQ could not touch. It is configurable as either two independent mono equalizers or as a precisely ganged stereo equalizer.

New 25th anniversary features include:

  • Proportional Q filters: When selected, Q value is proportional to gain adjustment. As a band's gain increases, Q value increases and the filter narrows.
  • Selectable band control: Choose between viewing all parametric band controls in one view or focusing on a selected channel. Both views show the complete graphic display.
  • Double Precision control: Lets you choose between 32-bit floating point processing and double-precision 64-bit processing.

AudioTrack
CPU-light with pristine sound quality and serving the needs of a full channel strip within a single interface, Audio Track offers the most efficient way to mix your tracks. It includes three processors – EQ, compression and gating – in one easy-to-use plugin, AudioTrack functions like a mixing console's channel strip, serving your most essential needs on any audio track. You can open multiple instances, one per channel, and avoid the need to jump back and forth between separate equalizer, gate and compressor plugins.

The four-band paragraphic equalizer provides bell, high-pass, low-pass, and shelving filter options. Its dynamics section includes a fully adjustable compressor/expander and gate. Input and output faders allow for proper gain staging, and dynamics and output meters enable accurate visual feedback.

New 25th anniversary features include:

  • Focused EQ band display: Lets you view only the selected band's parametric controls, to let you quickly understand and control band values.
  • Separate meters for Comp and Gate gain reduction: For greater clarity and focus.
  • Double Precision: AudioTrack now executes 32-bit floating-point processing at 64-bits.

L1 Ultramaximizer
With only two major controls, quick and simple to use, the L1 is an advanced-level maximizer, look-ahead peak limiter and high-resolution re-quantizer – a powerful all-in-one plugin for mastering and mixing.

New 25th anniversary features include:

  • True Peak domain setting: Eliminates inter-sample clipping.
  • Automatic Release Control: Automatically adjusts release time.
