Waves Audio announces the new OneKnob Series ($400/bundle or $80/each MSRP), a set comprising seven plug-ins (Native only); each one provides a particular effect controlled by a single knob. The OneKnob Series comprises OneKnob Brighter, OneKnob Phatter, OneKnob Filter, OneKnob Pressure, OneKnob Louder, OneKnob Driver and OneKnob Wetter. OneKnob Series SoundGrid includes six plug-ins (Louder, Pressure, Phatter, Brighter, Driver, Filter) for $600 MSRP.
OneKnob Brighter is an intelligent treble booster that adds brightness from the mid-high range on up, while Phatter is a bass booster that provides a quick way to add bottom, weight and body to bass, keys, kick drums and vocals alike, to thicken them in the mix. OneKnob Filter is a sweepable filter with switchable Resonance modes, designed for full mixes, loops, analog synths and more.
OneKnob Pressure is a dynamics processor offering compression settings that range from light, parallel-style compression to pumping and squashing, well suited for percussive sources like loops and drum buses. OneKnob Louder uses a combination of peak limiting and low-level compression with automatic makeup to effectively makes tracks louder by increasing RMS by up to 24 dB.
Inspired by famous guitar overdrive pedals, Driver is said to provide everything from light overdrive to full-on distortion for guitars, vocals, piano, synths, drums, bass and more. OneKnob Wetter is said to add instant depth to a track, from short, bright ambiences that are felt more than heard, to longer, darker spaces.
