Waves Abbey Road Studios REDD Plug-in - Native Reviews

    Well, 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 many 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+++

    The Waves REDD Plug-in

    If you have interest in capturing the way records and recordings of the 60's sound, This plugin does a great job. I've always been appreciative of Abbey Road Studios so their involve meant is really cool. The vibe is awesome if you like retro vibe. As is with most plugins a little goes a long way but a little can really change and enhance the over all sound. At the very least check out the Demo. it's worth it for sure.

    The REDD has a nice way of filling up the low end on a drum buss with its bass lift setting. The basic EQ on this is not ideal for surgical work obviously (look at the SSL plugs for that) but as mentioned, can add some bottom end and open up the top end to drum overheads. The best part of this plugin (for me) is the drive setting which I love to use on guitars & vocals. The other very cool feature on the REDD is the MS mode to slap across the mix/mastering buss.
