Waves is celebrating its 25th anniversary by introducing revamped versions of three classic plugins: Q10 Equalizer, AudioTrack channel strip and L1 Ultramaximizer. Each one comes with new features, and can be used with its ‘legacy’ interface or a new GUI.
The Q10 is a multiband paragraphic EQ that offers up to 10 bands. It's now got proportional Q filters among other improvements.
AudioTrack, meanwhile, emulates a channel strip from a mixing console and gives you EQ, compression and gating in one plugin. The anniversary edition adds a focused EQ band display, separate meters for Comp and Gate gain reduction, and the same double precision 64-bit processing option as Q10.
Finally, the famous L1 Ultramaximizer offers an advancedlevel maximizer, look-ahead peak limiter and high-resolution re-quantizer. New features include Auto Release and a measure said to eliminate inter-sample clipping.
