Three Classic Console Sounds In One Plug-In


Waves Audio is now shipping its NLS Non-Linear Summer, which they say delivers the sound of three classic consoles in one plug-in. To create NLS, Waves joined forces with three of today's leading producer / engineers – Mark ´Spike´ Stent, Mike Hedges and Yoad Nevo – modeling their rare mixing desks.
NLS recreates the sound of:
  • The "magical" solid state console belonging to Mark "Spike" Stent (Radiohead, Björk, Muse, Maroon 5, Madonna).
  • The classic console owned by Mike Hedges (The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Dido, Faithless, Manic Street Preachers, U2), heard on such timeless recordings as Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon.
  • The British console customized for Yoad Nevo (Bryan Adams, Pet Shop Boys, Sugababes, Goldfrapp, Air).
A Waves PR person told Sonic State, "In the creation of this plugin, Waves meticulously modeled over 100 individual channels in all, painstakingly analyzing and recreating the distinctive color, character, and behavior of each and every input and summing bus amp. Waves NLS delivers to the digital realm the depth and richness that has long been associated exclusively with analog gear. Say goodbye to cold digital tracks that lack depth and harmonic complexity, and say hello to the richness and warmth that only analog gear could deliver – until now."
Features:
  • Non-linear summing enhancement
  • Three legendary consoles in one plugin
  • Over 100 individually modeled channel and summing buss amps
  • Developed in association with top producer/engineers
  • Adds analog warmth and character
  • Global control over all NLS plugins in the session
Pricing and Availability:
Waves NLS Non-Linear Summer is now available with U.S. MSRP as follows: $249 Native / $349 TDM. More information:
