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.
The 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.
