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.
