Tube Exciter in a Brilliant Plug-inWaves packs a tube-powered Exciter into an absolutely amazing plug-in! The Waves Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter plug-in is modeled on a very rare tube-fired Aural Exciter hardware unit - the same kind sought after in the '70s to turn great tracks into classic hits. This Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter plug-in gives you the same sparkling performance, vibe, and even looks as the classic hardware version (you'll love the user interface, which comes complete with virtual VU meters). Mode, Meter, Input, AX Mix, and Output controls put you in command, while an Analog section lets you dial in just the right amount of analog flavor. If you're looking for the perfect combination of old-school production and modern flexibility, you'll find a great tool in the Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter!

Cool! Less is more though.
by P.C. from HI.Great tool. I find that it works best with an aux. bus. Less is definitely more with this plug in. It can really add that sometimes elusive crispness to a track.

by fromI got this tool to brighten my mixes in Ableton, as I found them somewhat muddy on average, and wound up really pleased with my purchase.

Waves & Sweetwater describe this accurately, st... read more [+]ating that it brightens the mix, but it's not an equalizer, and they definitely got that right. It's got a real unique treatment about it. I've sort of grown to think of this as doing to HIs what Subharmonic Synthesizers do to LOs.
Since there are only five of the real units out there, I can't say how close it comes to the real deal, but it's got a unique vibe to any other plugin out there that I've heard.
I'd recommend using this on a bus, not individual/master channels, as it can be quite harsh. It seems like a one trick deal, but it's been a super addition to my mixing experience.
- Rated a 4.0 for it's unique but limited use. close [-]
