Waves Audio Releases New Hybrid Line

Waves Audio has released a new Hybrid Line, including the H-Comp and H-Delay.

Tel Aviv, Israel (April 7, 2009) -- Waves Audio, provider of digital signal processing solutions, introduces the new Waves Hybrid Line. Drawing on the technical breakthroughs of their console/processor models (SSL 4000 Collection, V-Series, The API Collection, The JJP Collection), Waves has created a new series of plug-ins that blends 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 Hybrid Compressor
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. The result is a compressor with capabilities that engineers could once only dream about.

Features and capabilities include: Wet/Dry mix option for easy parallel compression; analog modeled release behavior; transient pass-through control; BPM sync release function; multiple analog character modes; output limiter/clipper modes; and external sidechain support.

H-Delay Hybrid Delay
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 a super-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.

Rig Rundown: Wolf Alice's Joff Oddie

Joff Oddie shows PG his own Jag-Master creation and then plasters it with pedals bending (and distorting) space and time.

Listening to the tidal wave in “Giant Peach,” the riotous “Moaning Lisa Smile,” or the punked-up “Play the Greatest Hits,” it’s hard to imagine Wolf Alice as an acoustic duo. Then talk to Joff Oddie about his integral use of effects—“These pedals can do such crazy things; to not do crazy things with things that can do crazy things seems odd”—and the band’s origin story becomes even more improbable. But it’s true: Wolf Alice started with guitarist/singer Ellie Rowsell and guitarist Oddie playing acoustic-folk music during open-mic nights in North London pubs.
