Developed in association with Abbey Road Studios, the new Waves Abbey Road Collection features a lineup of plug-ins that meticulously model the fabled studios’ legendary microphones, consoles, tape machines and signature effects, as heard on countless historic recordings and pop masterpieces.
The Waves Abbey Road Collection includes the REDD consoles, the RS56 Passive EQ (‘the Curve Bender’) and the J37 Tape, as well as the vintage King’s Microphones and the pioneering Reel ADT.
“All of these plug-ins are carefully modeled on the original, rare and often exclusive Abbey Road Studios hardware, providing users with legendary sound in the studio or live on stage,” states Mick Olesh, Waves EVP sales & marketing. “Abbey Road Studios is undoubtedly the most celebrated recording complex in the world. We are excited to be able to continue our collaboration with Abbey Road on this exceptional collection of audio plug-ins.”
Mirek Stiles, head of audio products for Abbey Road Studios, adds, “Abbey Road Studios is proud to work closely with the talented team at Waves, creating the ultimate collection of plug-ins based on Abbey Road’s cherished classic recording equipment and techniques.
“These beautiful-sounding plug-ins encapsulate the hardware and expertise that contribute to the ‘Abbey Road sound’, as heard on the many landmark recordings made at the studios throughout its 80-plus year history. It’s good to know that current and future generations of musicians, engineers and producers working across all genres of music can add a little piece of Abbey Road Studios magic to their music.”
The Waves Abbey Road Collection is Native- and SoundGrid-compatible. It’s now available with a U.S. MSRP of Native $600 (with a special introductory price of $480) and SoundGrid $900 (with a special introductory price $720).
