Nail That Abbey Road VibeWaves' REDD Native plug-in gives you the sound of Abbey Road's legendary REDD consoles. The iconic REDD.17, REDD.37 and REDD.51 desks were built by EMI's in-house Record Engineering Development Department and were in use at Abbey Road Studios from the late '50s to the late '60s, recording a broad range of talent, including, of course, the Beatles. Now you can infuse your recordings with that silky smooth EQ, palpable warmth, and opulent stereo imagery - all from within the comfort and control of your DAW - with Waves' REDD Native plug-in.
Waves' REDD Native plug-in at a Glance:
Exercise explicit control over your vintage vibe
The Waves' REDD Native plug-in gives you exacting control over your vintage vibe - control that Geoff Emerick and his fellow engineers never enjoyed while working on the original REDD desks. You can determine the type of amplifier (REDD.37 or.51) and employ Bass Lift to exercise control over a 9dB low shelf that compensates for low frequency loss caused by using a condenser mic in a Figure-8 config.
Classic Brit "equalisation"
The REDD desks were famous for their eminently musical-sounding EQ, and Waves' REDD Native plug-in gives you that luscious sound, along with iron-fisted control over it. EQ Select toggles between Classic and Pop EQ types (this was a prominent switch on REDD consoles to globally optimize the board for different music genres). Classic treble EQ gives you a shelf boost or cut at 10kHz, while Pop EQ generates a peak boost centered around 5k, with a shelf cut centered at 10k. Both Pop and Classic settings sport a continuous 10dB of boost or cut at 100Hz. And naturally, everything is fully automatable - just as you'd expect in a modern plug-in.
The real deal - right down to modeled noise
Waves - working in concert with Abbey Road Studios - has done a masterful job in bringing the classic sound of REDD consoles to your DAW. No detail was spared: they've even modeled the noise. Don't worry, though - the REDD Native plug-in is as quiet as a modern plug-in should be, unless you crank the Analog control, which increases the level of modeled noise and hum (a delightful artifact of vintage boards). You even get a Drive control to determine how hard you hit the emulated tube electronics. Go ahead - bask in vintage analog warmth, with Waves' REDD Native plug-in.

by Rafael from United StatesWell, I never really used console plugins before like this, but I have always wanted to have that vintage console type of sound in my recordings. I mean, if the Beatles and Floyd used this during ma... read more [+]ny of their albums, it must have something great to it, otherwise, they most likely would have used something else, i'm sure. I purchased this recently and started using it on some tracks - WOW - first of all, it's incredibly EASY to use and gives an awesome mid-range and high end on everything! It really cranks some serious punch and made my tracks nice and CLEAR. I'm all about clarity in recording and need to have a nice mid-range boost. This definitely gave me that and more! I mean, everything I put through this plugin sounds like it FITS nice in it's own space. This will give you a good track balance. I became a little overwhelmed by the other console plugin , like the SSL. It's kind of intimidating if you never used something like that before, if you know what I mean. But, this REDD console plugin is so easy to dial in what you need and just sounds amazing. Thank you Waves and Sweetwater! A+++ close [-]
