Legendary Abbey Road Sounds from Waves

Let Sweetwater put legendary sound to work in your studio with the Waves Abbey Road Collection. Abbey Road Studios and Waves worked to painstakingly model actual vintage gear used on songs by everyone from the Beatles to Iron Maiden, from Ella to Adele - giving you unprecedented access to microphones used by British royalty and the warmth of the consoles built by the Abbey Road masters themselves. Use the Abbey Road Collection on your next album and you'll have the sonic signature of some of the most historic musical recordings of our time.

Reel ADT delivers classic doubling effects

Waves Reel ADT brings you an authentic replication of the Artificial Double Tracking effect developed at Abbey Road studios for The Beatles. Reel ADT mimics the effect of sending an audio track to a separate tape machine, allowing you to adjust the time difference of the two tracks. This creates the effect of recording two takes with subtle timing differences. You can also coax a wide range of flanging, phasing, and tape saturation effects. It's a classic sound that's perfect for adding spice to modern recordings.

J37 brings analog warmth for your digital recordings

J37 is a tape saturation effect that imbues your recordings with delectable analog warmth. A Studer design modified by EMI, the J37 4-track tape machine captured many of the greatest masterpieces in modern music during the 1960s and '70s. Waves teamed up with Abbey Road Studios to create this sensational plug-in, which breathes new life into sterile digital recordings. You get control over essential functions like tape speed, bias, and tape delay, as well as a choice of three EMI oxide tape formulas. Nail the inimitable sonic signature of an analog classic, with Waves' J37.

RS56 is the classic Brit-pop EQ shaping tool

Waves developed their RS56 passive equalizer plug-in with Abbey Road Studios, bringing you the sound that shaped British pop music. The original RS56 Universal Tone Control was an early 1950s mastering EQ that earned the nickname "The Curve Bender" for its remarkable ability to shape sound without distorting - a quality Waves was able to capture perfectly via advanced circuit modeling. Each of the RS56 plug-in's three bands provides you with four selectable center frequencies and six different filter types. What's more, linkable stereo controls and Mid-Side processing in RS56 provide flexibility far beyond the original hardware.

REDD nails the Abbey Road vibe

REDD 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.

The King's Microphones emulates historical mics

You've seen the movie. Now nail the sound. The King's Microphones re-creates the frequency response of the ornate mic used by King George VI, as well as the ones used by Queen Elizabeth and King George V. The actual mics (dating back to the 1920s and '30s) are alive and well and were used to record music and dialogue for the Oscar-sweeping Best Picture at Abbey Road Studios. With three proximity settings for each mic, this is a throughly modern plug-in you can deploy in your favorite DAW.

EMI TG12345 yields legendary console sound

EMI TG12345 brings the legendary sound of a classic console to your studio. Meticulously modeled, this incredible plug-in captures every nuance of the TG12345, giving you the unmistakable crispness, harmonic distortion, and punch that helped shape the sound of the Beatles, Pink Floyd, and many others. You get the original desk's full channel strip: its input mic preamp, EQ, and "spreader," as well as its renowned compressor/limiter, with its distinctive, irresistible sound.

Reverb Plates adds a distinctive ambience to your tracks

Reverb Plates enhances your 'verb palette with meticulous models of four Abbey Road Studios EMT 140 reverb plates. Dating from the late 1950s, these large reverb devices were used on many legendary recordings, including, of course, classics by the Beatles and Pink Floyd. Flawlessly maintained by Abbey Road engineers, these wonderful-sounding plates deliver variable reverb lengths of up to six seconds. Three of the plates were modified by EMI Labs with custom hybrid solid-state drive amps; the fourth is fully tube-powered. All together, Reverb Plates gives you essential plate reverb, in all its sonic glory.

Vinyl brings authentic vinyl vibe to your tracks

Abbey Road Vinyl delivers the vintage warmth of vinyl records directly to your tracks. From the vinyl cutting and playback gear of Abbey Road's studio, comes the authentic vibe of turntables and needles. Choose between acetate printed vinyl pressing, 2 turntables, 3 cartridges, and even the ability to move the tone arm position for variable frequency response and distortion. Add noise, pops, crackles and wow and flutter at will. And to top it all off, run your final sound through Abbey Road's EMI TG12410 mastering deck.
