This single amazing plug-in gives you the spot-on sound of three world-famous consoles.

Waves NLS Non-linear Summer Console Modeling Plug-in Suite at a Glance:
Console modeling designed in cooperation with three world-class engineers
To start their NLS non-linear summer plug-in off on the right foot, Waves got together with three of the world's top recording engineers/producers, each with his own unique and phenomenal-sounding recording console. These engineers include Spike Stent (Bjork, Maroon 5, Madonna), Mike Hedges (The Cure, Dido, U2), and Yoad Nevo (Bryan Adams, Pet Shop Boys, The Dandy Warhols). Working channel by channel, these engineers helped to ensure that each of NLS's models came out as accurate as possible. The results are absolutely astounding!
Over 100 individual channels modeled across three amazing consoles
The key concept behind Waves' NLS non-linear summer plug-in is that the warmth and dimensional sound of these remarkable consoles is the result of many individual channels (each with their own unique sound) interacting together. So, instead of modeling just a single idealized channel from each console, Waves modeled dozens of them. Not only does NLS allow you to recreate the same dynamic interaction between each channel as you'd get if you were using the original analog console, it also lets you create completely unique overall sounds by combining channels from multiple consoles. What's more, Waves also modeled each channel's self noise independently from its frequency response, giving you the option whether or not to include this realistic sonic element in your mix.
Two plug-in components give you excellent sound-shaping options
In addition to individual channels, the Waves NLS non-linear summer also includes a summing buss amplifier model plug-in for each console, which acts as a master control for each of the channel plug-ins. Together, these two plug-in types give you a ton of control over your sound. For instance, you can group multiple channel plug-ins (including channels from multiple console models) into eight VCA groups, which you can mix from the buss plug-in. Individual and buss drive controls let you add saturation to your sound, and each channel plug-in gives you a mic switch, which lets you add in the grit and harmonics from the consoles' preamp sections. However you use Waves NLS non-linear summer, we're sure you'll love the results you'll get.

-both Channel and Buss instances available
-channel and buss instances "speak" to each other- (the ability to control individual instances... read more [+] from the group bus)
-3 console options: SSL, TG/EMI, Neve
-each "console" offers 32 DIFFERENT channels! (Yes all 96 actually sound different; some in dramatic ways- works well for Non-Linearity treatment of a real console. We're talking saturation here.
-The "Mic" option is like a bonus to -get some real crunch!
-"Drive" knobs to have it your way..
-No input control (need to have a gain stage control before the plugin if you need to change the amount of level going in)
-You will feel the CPU crunch if you don't have reasonable resources- CPU wise.
This is definitely worth the buy. Subtle and professional with its proper use generally. close [-]
