Just kind of wanted to break down what this was. A lot of people had a bunch of questions about this. This is probably the other series of plug-ins from Waves I use fairly often as well. So basically what you get is three different EQs and one buss compressor. So you get three bands going from top to bottom. The blue numbers define your frequency band. So 5kHz, you know, plus four dB. You get 12dB plus or minus in either direction on each of these bands. So if you wanted to boost, you know, Same thing with the mid filter.
You know, to 6kHz. Plus or minus. Then the low filter at 50Hz to Hz. Take your pick. You can switch the type of curve you get between the low filter and the high filter.
The default is shelves, but if you hit these buttons, the low filter becomes a bell or the high filter becomes a bell. Pianos, guitars, vocals, they sound great. Works the same.
I mean, you also get, what is it, like seven frequency bands on each sort of filter to select from. So here you get like, 2. So you go a little higher. You know, Hz to So definitely a lot more options there. Then also, you know, you have a switch here between the bell or shelves.
Bell or shelf curves on the high and low filters. Then of course you have your output section. Really easy to work. You know, and your metering at the top, obviously. Very simple to work. But you know, you just select the frequency band you want and go at it. Boost on the right, cut on the left. Figure out what you want to do and just start grabbing frequencies and go to town. Same type of output section. Phase reversal and the knob. Then you get the buss compressor.
Which is one of my favorite compressors. Then you can throw it into a variable release, which gives you way more control from 0. But you do have to throw it into that sort of mode for that to happen. Then down here, you have some shaping controls and sort of side-chaining options. Some magic that happens in the back end. Obviously, you can select from your three different knees, from a hard, medium, and soft.
Tone controls sort of has to do with where signal is thrown into the front of this thing. Basically, normal through is going to work like a normal compressor. Medium, basically what happens is less of the lows are compressed and more of the highs. Then loud is just going to be the same situation, just even more highs are compressed with less lows. So you almost get kind of a side-chaining type of vibe going on.
Tone type, also has to deal with how the signal dumps into that. So very subtle kind of tone shapings there. With your knee and your thrust sort of being the more dramatic options, then tone type is going to subtly kind of change some things. Then here you have — you know, you can high pass sort of the frequencies, or low pass frequencies that are coming into this thing. So you have options there.
Or you can do like a band pass filter. So three options there, each their own shape. Also, you get a lot of options with this thing. I usually almost always use the manual makeup gain. You just hit the red button and then you can manually back this off or put more out. Then you have Waves kind of analog noise on and off. Sort of hardware sound emulation voodoo. I love these things. I just wanted to do a quick video.
I had someone asking me to kind of go over the plug-ins in this series. I think you can buy them a la carte now through Waves. A lot of guys I know use them. We just hit 2,, which is really cool. Like, a legit plug-in. So — and maybe do some sort of a mixing contest where you guys can download some stems from the website. Later, guys.

This free rack closely models the signal processing in the side chain circuit of the hardware and even has the ability to simulate analog noise. I’m searching for a freeware emulating the API bus compressor, for prog rock and metal mastering purpose. Maybe SSL XLogic G-Series.
