Waves has announced its ultimate plug-in package -- the Diamond Bundle. The Waves Diamond Bundle incorporates 35 signal processing tools from the Platinum, Transform, and Restoration Bundles in one all-encompassing package.
The Diamond Bundle comprises plug-ins for every application, including tracking, mixing, mastering, sound design, audio restoration, and creative sound manipulation. All these tools are now available in the comprehensive Diamond Bundle at significantly less than the cost of buying the three original bundles individually.
For further versatility, Waves' exclusive WaveShell provides support for all popular plug-in formats and audio editors including TDM, RTAS, and AudioSuite, along with native formats such as VST, DirectX (Windows), MAS (Macintosh), and Apple Audio Units (Macintosh).
The Transform Bundle
The latest addition to the Waves family of signal processing solutions is the Transform Bundle of plug-ins for creative sound manipulation, including Sound Shifter, Doubler, TransX, and Morphoder, all operating at sample rates up to 96 kHz. The Transform Bundle offers four tools in one package designed to control and shape time, pitch, dimension, punch, and instrument characteristics.
Utilizing the latest in psycho-acoustic research and multi-level decision algorithms, the Waves Restoration Bundle features four plug-ins specifically designed to deal with noise, clicks, crackles, and hum. The Restoration Bundle can successfully address virtually all the problems that may be encountered while recovering audio material from magnetic tape, optical soundtracks, vinyl, or shellac disc recordings -- and even digital sources.
The Platinum Bundle
In addition, the Diamond Bundle incorporates all the processors that make up Waves' Platinum Bundle, which consists of its Gold Bundle, plus three processors available from the Masters Bundle, and three more from the Renaissance Collection 2 Bundle. Linear Phase EQ, Multiband, and the lauded L2 Ultramaximizer are components taken from the Masters Bundle, which are ideal for precision mastering applications. The Renaissance Collection 2 supplies the Renaissance VOX, a powerful vocal processor improving strength and stability; the Renaissance Bass, a second generation version of the patented MaxxBass psycho-acoustic bass extension algorithm; and the Renaissance DeEsser, an improved de-esser offering adaptive threshold for smoother, more natural de-essing. The Gold Bundle offers another 19 tools created by Waves.
