WAVES LTD. has chosen the Winter NAMM show to announce a new Platinum bundle containing 25 of its premium audio processing tools.
The new Platinum bundle includes all the processors in Waves most popular and award-winning Gold bundle, plus three new processors available from the Masters bundle, also announced at NAMM, and three processors from the Renaissance Collection 2 bundle, which introduced in the second half of 2001.
The Masters bundle includes innovative Linear Phase EQ and Multiband plus addition to the award-winning L2 Ultramaximizer. The Masters bundle offers tools ideal for precision mastering applications. The Renaissance Collection 2 includes the Renaissance VOX, a powerful vocal processor improving strength and stability; the Renaissance Bass, a 2nd 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 includes another 19 critically acclaimed tools from Waves.

"Our goal was to create the highest-quality, most comprehensive set of audio processors that provide the professional with everything they need in a single cost-effective bundle. For those searching for a larger palette of creative options, the Platinum bundle is the perfect choice. "
