Waves made several announcements today regarding Waves plug-in software for Digital Performer, MOTU, Inc.'s flagship audio workstation and MIDI sequencing software.
Waves Native 3.2
Waves has announced full support for plug-in automation, along with significant plug-in acceleration, with release 3.2 of their native MAS plug-ins. Waves 3.2 is a high-water mark for Waves support for MOTU users and the MAS platform, one of the most efficient plug-in environments. Waves engineers have further optimized the performance of the entire Waves product line including full support for Digital Performer's state-of-the-art, sample-accurate, ramp-based mix automation features. All Waves plug-in parameters can be fully automated with no artifacts and sample-accurate precision. The 3.2 release also features versions of the Waves Renaissance Reverb and C4 Multiband that have been extensively optimized for well over double the performance of previous versions.
Waves native 3.2 is now available for download at www.waves.com.
On multi-processor G4 Power Macs, Digital Performer provides double the amount of plug-in processing power than on an equivalent single-processor G4. In addition, the MAS (MOTU Audio System) engine has been designed to allow all MAS plug-ins to take full advantage of this x2 speed increase. At NAMM, Waves announced a on-going development effort and commitment to support Digital Performer's multi-processing architecture in an update of their MAS-compatible native plug-ins in the near future. Details will soon be available on the Waves web site.
