Waves Audio announces the availability of Vitamin Sonic Enhancer, a multiband harmonic enhancer and tone-shaping plug-in that can help make tracks sound more powerful and “full of spark” by mixing an enriched version with the original signal.
With its zero-latency processing, Vitamin is designed for both studio and live mix engineers alike. Used as an insert on any track or bus, the new plug-ing delivers a warm, vital result that is comparable to what users would get from a parallel chain of EQ, compression and saturation processors.
Vitamin’s controls are immediately responsive, letting users smooth or accentuate punchiness and dynamics, determine the crossover frequency points between the plug-in’s five bands, and control the mix of the direct signal with its enhanced version. In addition, when Vitamin is in stereo mode, each band has a width control that lets users create wider sound images or make room for a vocal right in front of the mix, particularly useful for mastering.

Vitamin is available separately as well as in the following bundles: Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Horizon, Mercury, Prelude, Essentials, Pro Show, and SD7 Pro Show. Owners of these bundles with current Waves Update Plan coverage can update the bundles and receive Vitamin at no additional cost.
