Create powerful plugin chains with the new Waves StudioRack, the ultimate plugin chainer – now enhanced with new features including parallel processing racks, multiband split racks, and quick-access macros to create your own 'custom plugins.'

Thinking in terms of chains – not individual processors – is a hallmark of the best producers and engineers. The all-new Waves StudioRack finally places the full power of plugin chain creation in your hands.

StudioRack allows you to build intricate chains of up to 8 plugins from just one DAW insert – and save them for instant recall. But this is just the beginning. The new, re-imagined version of StudioRack also introduces new powerhouse features:

Parallel processing racks: Split your audio, from any point in any chain, into parallel mono, stereo and M/S racks – to add more punch, space, and presence to your signal, without having to create complex routings in your DAW.

Multiband split racks: Turn any Waves plugin into a multiband processor, with detailed control over your crossover points.

8 macros per chain: Combine parameters from different plugins in your chain into quick-access macro controls – essentially enabling you to build your own 'custom plugins.'

The new StudioRack also introduces easy plugin search, to instantly find the plugins you need; and floating plugin windows, to view and control multiple plugins simultaneously.

StudioRack allows you to save entire chains with their internal routings, and open them in any DAW – making it easier than ever to collaborate with producers and mixers who use a DAW different than yours.

StudioRack is also compatible with Waves' SoundGrid Studio, giving you the option to offload all plugin processing to a SoundGrid server, in order to mix plugin-rich sessions unlimited by your computer's CPU.

With the new Waves StudioRack, the full power of sound creation is in your hands.
