Waves Audio, a leading provider of digital signal processing solutions, in association
with Aphex, is now shipping their modeled plugin version of the original Aphex Aural
Exciter. Officially called the Waves Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter, the new plugin is
based on one of the two original tube-powered prototype units developed by Aphex during
the mid-seventies. The Waves Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter modeled plugin delivers all the
unique character of the rare hardware unit, with all the advantages of software.
A true groundbreaker at the time, the original Aural Exciter traveled from studio to
studio as an exclusive (and expensive) rental unit, bringing its distinctive sound
to select sessions by leading recording artists. Highly regarded for its ability to
increase and enhance presence, brightness and detail on vocal tracks and masters
alike, the Aural Exciter was even credited as a hardware session player on popular
albums by the likes of Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor.
The original Aphex model 402 is a part of recording history, with a sound thats
uniquely its own, says Aphex CEO David Wiener. I cant think of better hands to
entrust emulating that sound to than to the people at Waves. Theyve been wonderful
to work with, and were looking forward to more projects in the future.
Were pleased to add the Waves Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter to our line of modeled
plugins based on vintage hardware, says Mick Olesh, Executive VP of Waves Sales &
Marketing. The original Aphex Aural Exciter made a huge impact on the recording
industry, and were confident the new plugin version will be met with the same
enthusiasm by our users.
The Waves Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter will be available separately (U.S. MSRP
$250.00 Native/$500.00 TDM) and as part of the Waves Mercury bundle.
