New Masters and Platinum Bundles hit the streets 12/03/02Press Release
Waves is pleased to announce we have begun shipping our highly
anticipated Masters and Platinum bundles for Native (runs on the
PC or Mac CPU) and Pro Tools HD TDM systems! Masters, Platinum and
Platinum upgrades for Native and TDM systems are now available through
your Waves dealer.
The Masters bundle establishes a new benchmark for audio
purists. It introduces the new Linear Phase Equalizer and Linear Phase
Multiband, and a high bit rate enabled L2 Ultramaximizer. The Linear
Phase Equalizer and Linear Phase Multiband both incorporate an
innovative Waves design using FIR filters that introduce zero phase
distortion, and the result is a remarkably transparent sound for the
most demanding Mastering applications. Additionally, the Linear Phase
Multiband debuts our "Adaptive Threshold" that reduces the effect of
loud lower frequency sounds masking softer high frequency sounds in the
mix, adding superior clarity and reducing the artifacts the can occur
"Masters is the best quality software I have ever used. By being so
meticulous, Waves has challenged my hardware favorites such as Weiss and
Manley in a way that makes me never want to go back to hardware again,"
stated Ambrose Field, International Prize Winner for sound-design &
electro-acoustic composition Bourges 2000, Ars Electronica Annerkennung,
"I love Waves C4, but the Linear Phase Multiband is a
compression breakthrough. Its Adaptive Threshold feature dramatically
reduces compression squashing," said Bruce Richardson,
Sr Editor ProRec.com
The Masters Bundle also includes the award-winning L2 Ultramaximizer
(available for Native systems for the first time). Masters TDM is Waves
first bundle to be Digidesign Pro Tools HD compatible. More information
14-day demo downloads for Masters is now available from the Waves

The Platinum Bundle is designed to give you, the demanding audio
professional, the largest collection of professional "no compromise"
processors ever offered. The Platinum bundle combines the acclaimed
Gold bundle, the Renaissance Collection 2 bundle and the new Masters
Waves is offering several economical Platinum Upgrade options.
Gold version 3.x users can upgrade to Platinum at less than the cost of
purchasing the Masters by itself and also get the Renaissance Collection
2 set of processors as well. This can save you hundreds of dollars.
