NAMM: Waves Q-Clone Models Hardware EQ
Throw a curve with Q-Clone

Waves have come up with a cunning plan, Q-Clone can take the sound of a classic EQ and apply it to multiple channels using a plug-in. Q-Clone consists of two components: Q-Capture and Q-Clone itself. Q-Capture is set up to send a signal to the outboard equalizer and to accept a return of the processed signal. Next, Q-Clone is opened on a track. The settings on the outboard equalizer are then adjusted to achieve the desired sound. When the “capture” button is clicked, Q-Clone instantly models the sound and replicates it on the fly. The process can then be repeated on as many tracks as needed. At any time, you can go back to a particular track, make adjustments to the settings on your hardware equalizer, and capture the new sound. Q-Clone is capable of showing a graphic display of the EQ curve that has been replicated. You can even use the Add button to make additional adjustments on top of the existing processing (‘update’ mode), which is the equivalent of having two of the original equalizers in the path at once. All settings are stored within sessions and can be saved as presets for recall, for use across multiple tracks and sessions. Q-Clone can replicate the sound and phase response of any linear filter-based equalizer but not, of course, distortion or non-linearity. In addition to capturing your own equalizers, Q-Clone comes with a library of equalization presets captured from world-class hardware equalizers. Plus, there will be a section of the Waves website where users can post their own captured processor characteristics, much as is the case with Waves’ IR convolution reverberation series. Q-Clone is available as RTAS and HDTDM (ProTools 6.7 only), VST (Cubase /SX3) , MAS and AudioUnits (Logic 7 only)
