Waves Audio announces Waves Nx, and Greg Wells MixCentric plug-ins
Waves Audio introduced Waves Nx, a Virtual Mix Room plug-in, and Waves Greg Wells MixCentric plug-in, created in collaboration with engineer Greg Wells (Adele, Katy Perry, OneRepublic). Waves Nx gives you the optimal acoustics of a great mix room -- right inside your headphones. Powered by Waves' Nx technology, this plug-in lets you hear, on headphones, the same natural depth, natural reflections, and panoramic stereo image you would be hearing from speakers in an actual, physical room. The Greg Wells MixCentric plug-in offers a quick solution for putting a finishing touch on your mix. Using EQ, compression and harmonic distortion to process your master buss or groups, it enhances and balances the tonality of your mix. Available separately or as part of the new Greg Wells Signature Series bundle, which also includes the Greg Wells VoiceCentric and Greg Wells PianoCentric plug-ins. [source]
New plug-ins from Softube, Sonnox, and Brainworx for the UAD Platform
Universal Audio announced three new direct developer plug-ins for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces -- the Brainworx bx_digital V3 EQ Collection, Sonnox Oxford Envolution, and the exclusive Marshall JMP 2203 guitar amplifier. All three plug-ins will be released as part of UAD Software v8.5 in early February 2016. The Marshall JMP 2203 plug-in is an expert emulation of the legendary 100-watt amplifier used by everyone from Iron Maiden and Slayer, to Jeff Beck and My Bloody Valentine. All Marshall plug-ins include UA's Unison technology; Apollo user's guitar pickups will see the exact impedance load as if they're plugged into a vintage Marshall amp -- a feature found only on Apollo audio interfaces. Oxford Envolution is a frequency-dependent envelope shaper that can add presence/distance to drums, piano, guitar, and any other percussive content. With separate transient and sustain sections, the Envolution can radically modify the sound of sources, boosting sustain for added ambience or cutting it for quick, precise gating. And finally, the Brainworx bx_digital V3 EQ Collection is a reimagining of the popular bx_digital V2 EQ plug-in -- a state-of-the-art mastering EQ and M/S (mid/side) processor and indispensable tool for many mixing, mastering, and post-production engineers. The bx_digital V3 EQ adds a Dynamic EQ section, radically updated filters, and a new proportional Q mode to the already powerful M/S capabilities of the plug-in. [source]
