The Waves One Knob plug-ins are great for that "quick fix" in your tracks. These effects are about as simple as it gets to dial in a great sound.
I am blown away on how easy this bundle is to use. I purchased this in hoping to fatten up and get more volume on the master track and it did the trick! Of course it great for adding it to synths, drums and whatever you like but good for mastering too and the filter efx is great!!
This effects bundle by Waves is great! Super easy and great results. Save time and money and buy Oneknob! Great looking interface too! Waves in general have awesome products, and I use several of them including this one.! Really happy with this purchase! Thanks Carson!!
Theses plugs are Phenomenal!!!!!!!!!! especially the wetter and the brighter.. all of them though are very useful in one scenario or the other.. but the wetter and the brighter just brings is out and gives it the space it is desiring.. is like when there is a cloudy day and all of a sudden the clouds move out of the way and the sun pops out.. just like that.. great great great... i downloaded the demo and will be ordering it next week. a MUST have...
Simple & Affective FX
First & foremost to anyone reading this review, try to keep an open mind. Also remember the saying " To each his/their own" well it will apply here. Waves has continued to pump out some pretty great plugins. Most of them are tweak-able with respects to personal user settings etc. THAT IS NOT THE CASE HERE !!! With the the "One Knob Series" what you see is what you get "One Knob" that when applied to a session/project/mix introduces a simple & affective FX into whatever or wherever you choose to place them. Most of the reviews I've read prior to purchasing them were bias, leaning towards. They're not worth it, they're not for professionals, they're for novices etc.. Which brings me back to "To each his/their own" I am a professional recording engineer/producer with over 30 years experience. IMHO I'll say this, as I state in most of my reviews. When you're in the studio , be it recording or producing an artist/client, it's all about sound and diversity. I have already used these in a session with an artist who appreciated the simple "One Knob" approach. Turn it up or bring it back down. I myself enjoy taking time with my mixes & prefer more options with respects to altering any particular setting. Although that is not possible with the "One Knob", Nevertheless, they're still a tool to add to your plugin toolbox. In closing,.... Did I really need them ???,
(No) ...However, between the Waves summer sale price & Sweetwater's 3 Easy Payment Plan, How could I pass them up. Hope this has been helpful.
Works well and sound quality very good. Overall happy with product thus far
Didn't want it... Love it.
Okay... So... I got kind of bullied into buying this bundle because I had a voucher that was about to expire and this was really all I could get with it at that time. Honestly... I was actually kind of angry about it then.
Well... Guess what? It's pretty cool. I'm thinking about buying another License for my MacBook. I'm serious! When jotting down Ideas quickly... Listening through Cans... On an airplane... These things are awesome. They really sound great. And... In any situation where you don't have accurate monitoring... They're your best bet because there's just one knob to each of them. You don't have to spend a coon's age tweaking. For me... That's great because the minute I get home... I'm going to change everything anyway.
If you'e just starting out and you find the regular controls of something like a compressor to be daunting... I'd say give these guys a try. Everything you NEED is here. They're not very adjustable but they sound good in general applications. Once you master them you'll have a leg up towards using more tweak-able processors.
One other thing that bears mention is that I have spent years collecting Plug-ins. I own the "Cream of the Crop". My collection is "Esoteric" to say the least. However... My current "Go To" vocal exciter is the "Brighter" Plug-in. That's the truth. That plug-in does something that I haven't found in any other and it's easy to use. I just De-Ess the vocal... Or guitar... Or whatever... Add the "Brighter" Plug-in... Crank It... Viola. Instant presence in the mix!
I know the "One Knob" bundle seems dumb at first. Just give it a chance. It's really quite cool.
