Last week, EQ was down in LA to check out the ultra-swanky Esquire House, billed by that mag as “the ultimate bachelor pad.” I mean, you really have to see this place to believe it: We’re talking cliffside pool, virtual reality room, a shoe closet bigger than my apartment. And, of course, a $500,000 recording studio. (We should all be so lucky.)


It was there where we got to watch super-producer Jack Joseph Puig (Rolling Stones, Beck, Black Eyed Peas, Black Crowes, Goo Goo Dolls, etc., etc., etc.) show off his new Waves Artist Signature Collection, which was designed with self-recording artists in mind. (That’s us!) According to Jack: “This is a plug-in that has a few decades of love, life, sweat, sweat energy, failing, winning, shit record, hit record, etc. I wanted all of that to be built into the plug-in.”


Puig’s partnership with Waves began about six years ago, with custom emulations of vintage goodies like the Fairchild 660 and 670 compressors and the Pultec EQP-1A and MEQ-5 (reborn, appropriately enough, as PuigChilds and PuigTecs) and continued with the JJP Artist Collection, a bundle of 25 separate plug-ins for $880. One of the key ideas behind the new plug-ins is to let artists “stay in their creative space” and not get mired in technology. The demos sounded pretty amazing, and we’ll be reporting more when we actually get to check them out ourselves…
