Waves Platinum plugin suite offers the tools Grammy-winning engineers use every day to mix and master the songs you hear on the radio. Waves has always remained at the cutting edge. They pioneered the science of getting the most out of digital processing. Some Waves algorithms have proven so invaluable that hardware versions have been manufactured so that analog recording studios can take advantage of them. I’ve added some notable Waves plugins not included in Platinum to my collection. These include SSL and Neve modeling, and some fantastic modeled tape and vinyl from their Abbey Roads Studios collection.
Slate Digital has been the up-and-comer in the plugin world for a number of years now. Their modeling of analog hardware is unparalleled. When I am looking to add warmth, grit, or compression that sounds like classic hardware units, I turn to Slate and their “Everything” plugin bundle.
