â€” GRAMMYÂ® Award-winning, genre-defining producer/mix engineer works closely with Waves to create six application-specific audio plug-ins â€”
WINTER NAMM SHOW, ANAHEIM, CA, January 15, 2009 â€” Waves Audio continues its emphasis on collaboration with leading music industry masters as it presents The Tony Maserati Collection, the first in the Waves Signature Series. Maserati, a GRAMMYÂ® Award-winning, multi-platinum producer/engineer/mix engineer for countless R&B, hip-hop and pop hits, worked closely with the Waves R&D team to create this collection of six application-specific plug-ins that precisely capture Maseratiâ€™s personal production, engineering and mixing style.
The Tony Maserati Collection consists of six plug-ins: the Maserati VX1 Vocal Enhancer; Maserati DRM Drum Slammer; Maserati ACG Acoustic Guitar Designer; Maserati HMX Harmonics Generator; Maserati B72 Bass Phattener; and Maserati GTi Guitar Toner. These custom-built, high-performance processing chains grant users access to the same tools that Maserati has used to define the contemporary music soundscape.
Tony Maserati has played a pivotal role in defining todayâ€™s R&B, hip-hop and pop aesthetic. With over 250 releases under his belt, he is widely regarded as a primary architect of the sounds associated with New York R&B production since the mid-90s. His resume is extensive: Jason Mraz (for whose most recent album Maserati is currently nominated for a GRAMMY), will.i.am / Fergie / Black Eyed Peas, Mary J. Blige, David Bowie, 2Pac, Britney Spears, John Legend, Beyonce, Jessica Simpson, Alicia Keys, and many more have all turned to Maserati for his magic touch. With The Tony Maserati Collection, users are given a fast track to Maseratiâ€™s hit sounds.
Maserati says, â€œI have been using Waves plug-ins from the beginning of my immersion in digital workstations. From dynamics and EQs to special effects, most of the tracks that recording engineers send me have Waves plug-ins on them, making it easy for me to save their work and edit. Waves did an amazing job turning my personal processing chains into custom plug-ins.â€?
The Tony Maserati Collection from the Waves Signature Series is Native only. It is available for $800.00 MSRP and is now included in Waves Mercury.
