By PSW Staff • January 19, 2009 The Waves Maserati ACG Acoustic Guitar Designer Waves Audio continues its emphasis on collaboration with leading music industry masters as it presents The Tony Maserati Collection, the first in the Waves Signature Series. Maserati, a GRAMMY Award winning, multi-platinum producer/engineer/mix engineer for countless R&B, hip-hop, and pop hits, worked closely with the Waves R&D team to create this collection of six application-specific plug-ins that precisely capture Maserati’s personal production, engineering and mixing style. The Tony Maserati Collection consists of six plug-ins: the Maserati VX1 Vocal Enhancer; Maserati DRM Drum Slammer; Maserati ACG Acoustic Guitar Designer; Maserati HMX Harmonics Generator; Maserati B72 Bass Phattener; and Maserati GTi Guitar Toner. Tony Maserati has played a pivotal role in defining today’s R&B, hip-hop and pop aesthetic. With over 250 releases under his belt, he is widely regarded as a primary architect of the sounds associated with New York R&B production since the mid-90s. His resume is extensive: Jason Mraz (for whose most recent album Maserati is currently nominated for a GRAMMY), will.i.am / Fergie / Black Eyed Peas, Mary J. Blige, David Bowie, 2Pac, Britney Spears, John Legend, Beyoncé, Jessica Simpson, Alicia Keys, and many more. Maserati says, “I have been using Waves plug-ins from the beginning of my immersion in digital workstations. From dynamics and EQs to special effects, most of the tracks that recording engineers send me have Waves plug-ins on them, making it easy for me to save their work and edit. Waves did an amazing job turning my personal processing chains into custom plug-ins.” The Tony Maserati Collection from the Waves Signature Series is Native only. It is available for $800 MSRP, and is now included in Waves Mercury. Waves Website Comments Have something to say about this PSW content? Leave a comment!

Jacob says The sound system concept originated in the 1950s in Kingston, Jamaica. DJs would load up a truck with a generator, turntables, and huge speakers to set up street parties.It’s best to have backup.I am really interested in and I also suggested you and I really in need of such things. The sound system scene is generally regarded as an important part of Jamaican cultural history and as being responsible for the rise of modern Jamaican musical styles such as ska, rocksteady, reggae and dub.I am really happy that I have isp but I always interested in high quality things. When Jamaicans emigrated to the United Kingdom, the sound system culture followed and became firmly rooted there in the 1970s. It is still strongly linked with those Jamaican-originated music genres, and some bands or producers still call themselves sound systems, such as Dub Narcotic Sound System and the On-U Sound System. When Asian Dub Foundation are advertised as Asian Dub Foundation, the whole band performs, but when they announce themselves as Asian Dub Foundation Sound System, members of the band mix and play music (by other artists, as well as their own) while one or two MCs rap over the songs like DJ Pro.I am new to wireless broadband but i think it will really work for me. The term also has also become connected with sound reinforcement systems by DJs such as the Valve Sound System.
