By PSW Staff • April 10, 2009 Waves kicks off the new Hybrid Line with the H-Comp Hybrid Compressor and the H-Delay Hybrid Delay The new Waves Audio Hybrid Line of plug-ins draws on the technical breakthroughs of the company’s award-winning console/processor models (SSL 4000 Collection, V-Series, The API Collection, The JJP Collection) to blend the best of yesterday’s sound with today’s technology. The Hybrid Line offers the color and character of classic analog hardware processors with the features and flexibility of Waves digital plug-ins. The first two products in the Waves Hybrid Line are the H-Comp Hybrid Compressor and the H-Delay Hybrid Delay. H-Comp is a brand new dynamics processor that combines the modeled behavior of transformers, tubes, and transistors with the power and precision provided only by modern-day plug-ins. Features and capabilities include: Wet/Dry mix option for easy parallel compression; analog modeled release behavior; unique transient pass-through control; exclusive BPM sync release function; multiple analog character modes; output limiter/clipper modes; and external sidechain support. From slap-back echo, ping-pong delay and tempo-sync with modulation, to filtering, flanging, phasing and more, H-Delay delivers real vintage as well as PCM42-style effects, controlled by an intuitive interface. Features and capabilities include: delay time of up to 3500 ms (TDM); variable pitch delay time behavior; multiple analog character modes; infinite feedback support; LFO-controlled pitch modulation; LoFi mode; and tap + BPM synchronization. H-Comp and H-Delay are Native and TDM. Waves Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Mercury V6 owners covered by the Waves Update Plan receive H-Comp and H-Delay at no additional charge. H-Comp retails for $200.00 Native, $400.00 TDM. H-Delay retails for $200.00 Native, $400.00 TDM. Waves Audio Website Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
