Waves Audio and Abbey Road Studios ship EMI TG12345 plug-in
Waves Audio and Abbey Road Studios announced the shipment of the EMI TG12345 plug-in, bringing to life the legendary console that epitomized the sound evolution of the late '60s and early '70s. The first-ever solid-state console created by EMI, the original TG12345 desk helped shape classic recordings by The Beatles, Pink Floyd and many others. Thanks to meticulous component modeling, the Waves/Abbey Road channel strip plug-in captures every celebrated feature of the one-of-a-kind original console: the input mic preamp, down to every last detail of its harmonic distortion, hum and noise; the bass and treble EQ bands from the mic cassette; the presence EQ band from the console's group/main section; the lush-sounding spreader; and to top it all off, the console's famous limiter/compressor, with its distinctive sound. In addition to the console's original features, new elements have been added to make the plug-in even more accommodating for modern mixing needs, including a high-pass filter on the compressor's sidechain; a mix control in the dynamics section for easy parallel compression/limiting; a drive control; and more. Available now in native and SoundGrid version, introductory pricing starts at $99 US. [source]
