Waves Audio, a leading provider of digital signal processing solutions, introduces the new Waves Hybrid Line. Drawing on the technical breakthroughs of its award-winning console/processor models (SSL 4000 Collection, V-Series, the API Collection, and the JJP Collection), Waves has created a new series of plug-ins. The Hybrid Line offers the color and character of classic analog hardware processors with the features and flexibility of Waves digital plug-ins.
The first two products in the Waves Hybrid Line are the H-Comp Hybrid Compressor ($200 native; $400 TDM) and the H-Delay Hybrid Delay ($200 native; $400 TDM). Waves Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Mercury V6 owners covered by the Waves Update Plan receive H-Comp and H-Delay at no additional charge.
Waves H-Comp Hybrid Compressor plug-in
H-Comp is a dynamics processor that combines the modeled behavior of transformers, tubes and transistors with the power and precision provided only by modern-day plug-ins. Features and capabilities include: Wet/Dry mix option for easy parallel compression; analog modeled release behavior; unique transient pass-through control; exclusive BPM sync release function; multiple analog character modes; output limiter/clipper modes; and external sidechain support.
Waves H-Delay Hybrid Delay plug-in
H-Delay promises vintage as well as Lexicon PCM 42-style effects—from slap-back echo, ping-pong delay and tempo-sync with modulation, to filtering, flanging, phasing and more—that users can control with an intuitive interface. Features and capabilities include delay time of up to 3,500 ms (TDM); variable pitch delay time behavior; multiple analog character modes; infinite feedback support; LFO-controlled pitch modulation; LoFi mode; and tap plus BPM synchronization.
