A cost-effective collection of the essentials for sound designers and post production facilities 13/10/10
Waves has introduced the Sound Design Suite. Here's their press release with all the details...
With over 30 plugins hand-picked especially for sound designers and post production facilities, the Waves Sound Design Suite is a comprehensive and cost-effective collection of audio plugins that provides all the essentials without breaking the bank. In developing this collection, Waves worked closely with two of the hardest-working pros in the business: movie maven Scott Martin Gershin (Shrek, Braveheart, The Doors, JFK) and game guru Charles Deenen (Need for Speed, Fast and Furious).
From conventional effects to creative sonic textures, Sound Design Suite covers all the bases. With compression, EQ, pitch shifting, level maximization and more, users get everything they need to mold, modulate and mangle their sound. Whether for TV, movies or games, the Waves Sound Design Suite is the sound designer's all-in-one, off-the-shelf audio processing solution.
Scott Martin Gershin commented, "These are the basic building blocks that all Sound Designers should have. A lot of times, when you bought packages, you also ended up getting plugins that were kind of interesting but not very applicable because they weren't really focused on the needs of the Sound Designers. What I'm excited about is that now I can just go to a place I'm going to mix, or any other facility or rental company, and say, 'Give me this Pro Tools system and make sure it has the Sound Design Suite on it.' And that's all I need to say, because I know that within the Sound Design Suite, it's going to give me the building blocks."
Charles Deenen stated, "Since Sound Designers are not rich folks like some of our music brothers, the most valuable plugins at a good price-point was key. For the Sound Design Suite, we honed in what both Scott and I found to be the most useful plugs in the current Waves arsenal, at a reasonable price."
