WAVES LTD., a supplier of audio signal processing solutions for the professional audio and multimedia markets, today announced the release of the Renaissance Collection 2 processor bundle for Native and TDM platforms. The Renaissance Collection 2 combines several of Waves most sophisticated psycho-acoustic technologies for sonic superiority with the acclaimed Renaissance user interface for simplicity in music and post-production needs.
The Renaissance Collection 2 includes three new Plug-Ins: the Renaissance VOX, the Renaissance Bass and the Renaissance DeEsser. Renaissance VOX combines compressor, limiter and gate functions to bring vocals and solo instruments to the front of the mix while pushing out unwanted noise. Renaissance Bass refines Waves' popular MaxxBass technology to allow bass frequency extension through speakers with limited low frequency response. Renaissance DeEsser is the next generation DeEsser offering a unique Adapative Threshold that provides a more unified DeEssing and more natural sounding results.
"The Renaissance Collection 2 compliments our popular Renaissance Collection sweetening tools. Both offer simple user controls with musically powerful solutions based on over 10 years of audio psycho-acoustic research by Waves," stated Gilad Keren, CEO of Waves Ltd. "The Renaissance Collection 2 offers the Renaissance Vox and Renaissance Bass tools, which are powerful and completely unique to Waves, while the Renaissance DeEsser both simplifies and improves DeEsser performance compared to any other product in the market. We have been receiving excellent feedback from early users and are confident that we have several award winners in the bundle."
Free 14-day evaluation software is currently available from Waves website. The Renaissance Collection 2 will be available through Waves dealers worldwide in August. The Renaissance Collection 2 is offered at a special introductory price of $200 MSRP for the Native version (for host PC and Macintosh) and $400 MSRP for TDM (for Digidesign DSP hardware with a Macintosh host).
