Bass Levels Sorted Automatically


Waves has unveils its Bass Rider, which they describe as an innovative, easy-to-use plug-in that rides bass levels automatically. A companion their Vocal Rider plug-in, Waves say that Bass Rider delivers perfect bass levels, without changing the natural sound of users' bass and is optimized especially for the frequency range and envelope characteristics of bass instruments, be they DI, amplified, acoustic, synth, upright, etc.
Waves' PR officer told Sonic State, "A real timesaver with dedicated studio and live components, Bass Rider keeps bass levels in check and solid throughout a mix. Unlike a compressor, Bass Rider works note by note, without disturbing their inner dynamics, so they sustain and decay naturally. Best of all, since Bass Rider keeps levels steady with automatic gain adjustment, now users can focus on the feel and flow of their bass, and use compression if desired to add color and character."
