Waves Audio is now shipping MultiMod Rack, a multiband modulation rack offering three plugin slots, each can host the latest Waves distortion plugins, including the vintage analog-modeled Abbey Road Saturator, the modern waveshaper-based Berzerk, and the classic-sounding MDMX Screamer, Overdrive and Fuzz modules.
MultiMod’s three slots divide signal into three frequency bands — lows, mids and highs — with adjustable crossover controls. Users can assign the different plugins to different frequency bands, and separately control the flavor of distortion in each.
Reshuffling the chosen plugins between frequency bands will significantly change the sound for added tonal diversity. Each band also offers controls for level, stereo panning and harmonics, for pinpoint control of the distortion in each frequency area.
MultiMod’s five modulators allow users to modulate nearly every individual parameter of the Abbey Road Saturator, MDMX and Berzerk plugins. LFO, sequencer and amplitude modulation options can help bring users into sound-design territory.
“From intricate multiband distortion, to fully over-the-top destruction never before realized — there’s so much under the hood and so much potential to unlock with MultiMod Rack,” says GRAMMY-winning producer/mixer Joe Barresi (Tool, QOTSA, Slipknot).
GRAMMY-winning producer/mixer Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Tom Waits) adds, “My favorite thing about Waves is the selection of unique plugins that do what no other processing does simply, or at all. MultiMod fits right into that landscape and is incredibly fun to mangle sounds with. Another inspiring innovation from Waves.”
