H-Comp and H-Delay are designed to combine the best of the analog and digital worlds 08/04/09
Waves has introduced 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 they say blends the best of yesterday's sound with today's technology. Waves tell us that 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. Here's all the details from Waves... 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; unique transient pass-through control; exclusive 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. Pricing and Availability:
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. More information:
