Waves releases Tape, Tubes & Transistors featuring recreations of Eddie Kramer's Olympic Studios gear 15/09/11
Waves say that the legendary sound of London's Olympic Studios can be yours--with Tape, Tubes & Transistors, developed in association with Eddie Kramer and featuring three plug-ins - Kramer Master Tape, HLS Channel, and PIE Compressor. Waves tell us that, together, they recreate Eddie's golden audio chain, which he used to record musical icons like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and The Beatles.
A Waves spokesperson told us, "Over the course of a production and engineering career that has spanned more than four decades, Eddie Kramer was the man behind the board for the biggest names in music history. His work with Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Kiss brought forth music which continues to influence rock musicians and producers to this day. In modeling the Helios console channel, the Pye compressor, and the rare vintage 1/4" reel-to-reel machine, Waves has recreated three essential elements of the recording chain at Olympic Studios, where Eddie participated in so many historic recordings which are now considered part of the classic rock DNA."
