NEW PLUGS FROM WAVES

Waves introduced the Scheps Omni Channel plugin at NAMM. Designed with Grammy-winning mixer Andrew Scheps, the flexible channel strip delivers Andrew’s own combinations of compression, EQ, saturation colours and more – all crafted to work together seamlessly and cohesively.
Scheps Omni Channel features six modules that you can use in any order you like:
The Pre-module provides three types of analogue saturation, letting you add diverse colours of harmonic distortion as well as filters and thump (resonance) controls
The Compression module features three completely different compressors ranging from fast to slow and smooth, with a unified control set so you can quickly compare them. A Wet/Dry control lets you parallel compress within the module
The EQ module is a four-band equaliser; each band providing a distinct musical sound that can be switched to fully parametric
The DS2 module is more than a de-esser, with two full-range bands and four filter types allowing it to ‘de-anything’
The Gate module gives you all the standard controls for gating/expansion, but also lets you adjust the maximum noise reduction to maintain a consistent noise floor
The Scheps Omni Channel also features an insert slot that can be positioned anywhere in the chain
Created in collaboration with Paul Reed Smith, the Waves PRS SuperModels plug-in models three high-end PRS guitar amps: the PRS Archon; the PRS Dallas; and the ultra-rare PRS Blue Sierra/V9.
PRS Archon delivers a shimmering clean or aggressive overdrive; push it harder and you get glorious distortion. A serious pro amp with lush gain, the Archon is ideal for lead or for crunching rhythm, while also offering a clean channel that players of all genres will appreciate.
PRS Blue Sierra/V9: Never-before-released even in its hardware form, this ultra-rare amp was originally created as a prototype that eventually became the original format for the PRS J-MOD 100. Evocative of Boutique American guitar amps, it is equally great for clean sounds and medium-gain overdrive tones.
PRS Dallas: The Dallas tube guitar amp provides the sounds of classic American reverb amps. The all-tube design produces an open 3D tone for huge-sounding cleans, or an overdriven sound with natural-sounding reverb. A highly musical amp design that was one of Doug Sewell’s first entries in the world amp market, the Dallas offers sweet highs, solid lows and beautiful midrange tones.
