Noted engineer, programmer, mixer and producer Tal Herzberg has been using Waves’ newest plug-in processors on his latest projects. Herzberg has been working at the Record Plant’s Studio 2 and at his own studio inside the Henson Studios complex in Hollywood.
“Tune, the new automatic pitch-correction tool, allows me to create additional harmonies from vocal parts, some as much as an octave up or down, without any noticeable texture change from the original sound of the vocalist,” Herzberg says. “And GTR, the new amplifier and stomp-box–modeling plug-in and hardware, is a very realistic-sounding emulator, producing accurate-sounding guitar tracks right in the box.
“The L3 has become my go-to stereo bus processor, instantly adding punch and sheen to mixes and stems,” Herzberg continues. “Sound Shifter became my go-to pitch-shifting and time compressor/expander tool, yielding realistic and artifact-free results.”
Herzberg used Waves plug-in processors on the Black Eyed Peas’ Monkey Business, Mary J. Blige’s The Breakthrough and PCD by the Pussycat Dolls.
