Waves is the world’s leading developer of professional audio signal processing technologies, and recipient of a Technical GRAMMY® Award for its contributions to the recording industry.
Since its beginnings in the early ‘90s, with the release of its first plugin, the Q10 EQ, Waves has gone one to create over 130 (and counting) cutting-edge plugins heard on hit records, major motion pictures, and top-selling video games the world over.
The Waves product line covers every conceivable audio need, from the basics like equalization, compression and limiting to innovative problem-solvers like Vocal Rider, InPhase, WNS Noise Suppressor and WLM Loudness Meter. Waves set the industry standard for analog modeling, with acclaimed plugins like the popular Kramer Master Tape, developed in association with Eddie Kramer (Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin); the award-winning SSL 4000 Collection developed under license from Solid State Logic; and REDD, created in collaboration with Abbey Road Studios. Another Waves exclusive, the Signature Series, delivers the sound of leading producers and mixing engineers such as Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, U2), Tony Maserati (Beyoncé, Jay-Z), Jack Joseph Puig (Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas), and Manny Marroquin (Rihanna, Bruno Mars), using custom multi-effect chains and personalized processors created by the artists themselves.
