Waves Audio Intros H-Series Hybrid Plugin Collection

Waves Audio has introduced their new H-Series bundle, a collection of Waves’ hybrid plugins, which, they explain, model the original behavior of “diverse” analog gear and “boost it with the precision and limitless creative possibilities” of digital control.

Waves_Audio_h-seriesThe Waves H-Series combines all of Waves’ Hybrid plugins:

  • Waves H-Reverb ($349): A “beautiful-sounding” FIR reverb with rich and smooth reverb tails that “sit beautifully in the mix;” resonant filter sweeps; EQ and dynamics module for compression, ducking and de-essing; ADA analog modeling and drive control; full buildup timing and shaping; and pre-delay BPM sync.
  • Waves H-Delay ($179): A versatile delay, with options ranging from “old-school” delays to “cutting-edge” effects. H-Delay offers up to 3500 ms delay time; variable pitch delay time behavior; analog character and LoFi modes; infinite feedback support; LFO-controlled pitch modulation; and sync-to-host or manual BPM.
  • Waves H-EQ ($179): Vintage and modern EQ filters, “inspired by the finest” British and American mixing consoles. H-EQ offers users seven filter types per band; newly-developed asymmetrical bell filter; exclusive MS matrix mode; real-time frequency spectrum analyzer; and keyboard graphic.
  • Waves H-Comp ($179): A compressor that combines the modeled behavior of transformers, tubes and transistors, “with the precision that only a plugin can provide.” Features include analog-modeled release behavior; wet/dry mix control for parallel compression; transient pass-through punch control; BPM-synced release; analog character modes; and output limiter/clipper modes.
