Waves Get Cosy With Abbey Road


Following closely on the heels of the release of the Waves/Abbey Road – The King's Microphones plug-in, Waves Audio and Abbey Road Studios, have announced a long-term strategic partnership. As part of this relationship, Waves' R&D department will collaborate closely with Abbey Road Studios' engineers to create an ongoing series of audio plug-ins. Here's the press release with the details...
Abbey Road Studios has been home to sessions for countless landmark recordings by artists such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Hollies, Cliff Richard, Kate Bush, Radiohead, Muse, Oasis, Florence and the Machine and Sting. Its engineers have consistently been at the cutting edge of recording technology. Now, as they team up with Waves, the "Abbey Road sound" is available to any artist, recording engineer, producer or studio in the world.
Gilad Keren, Waves CEO, stated, "Abbey Road Studios is without a doubt the most famous recording complex in the world. We are thrilled to be able to continue our collaboration with them on what is sure to be an outstanding series of audio plugins."
Jonathan Smith, SVP at Abbey Road Studios, stated, "Since the early 1990s, Waves has been developing groundbreaking plugins for the audio industry. We are very proud to be working closely with Waves in the creation of exciting new products based on Abbey Road Studios' legendary equipment and expertise."
About Abbey Road Studios
Abbey Road Studios has been at the heart of the music industry for over 75 years and is one of the most authoritative, established and well-known names in the world of music. It has been the location of countless landmark recordings and pioneered new recording techniques and technology. Today, it is almost certainly the world's most technically-advanced recording, mixing, film-scoring and post-production complex. For many years, Abbey Road Studios benefited from the talents of EMI's research and development division, which built mixing consoles and outboard gear to meet the studios' requirements. Most of this equipment was only available to EMI studios and was never sold commercially. This equipment, combined with the acoustic properties of the studios, led to the creation of the "Abbey Road Sound", which can be heard on some of the most popular recordings of all time.
