Waves Now Shipping Version 8 Plug-ins

January 27, 2011

Waves Audio is now shipping version 8, the new version of Waves plug-ins.

One of version 8's most exciting highlights is that several classic plugins will be getting facelifts: L1 Ultramaximizer, S1 Stereo Imager, DeEsser, TrueVerb, Q10 Equalizer, C1 Compressor/Expander, and AudioTrack will all feature a fresher, more up-to-date look. Version 8 also adds Waves V-Series plug-ins to selected Waves bundles, bringing the modeled sounds of the vintage 1066, 1073, 1081, and 2254 hardware units to more users than ever.

Version 8 also delivers an improved preset management system with in-host integration, multilevel undo, and easier navigation. In addition, presets created by Waves Artists such as Dave Pensado, Ross Hogarth, Mike Hedges, and Steve Lillywhite come preloaded into the plug-ins, for the ultimate in convenience.

Other developments include faster loading times, mouse-wheel control, improved metering in AudioSuite, Novation Automap SDK implementation, and enhanced support for Avid Icon console EQ and dynamics sections. Last but not least, version 8 marks the first time users can purchase the vast majority of Waves plug-ins individually, a la carte.
