Waves Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain
Waves’ new modular channel strip plugin models the EMI TG12410 Transfer Console that’s still in active employment today at Abbey Road Studios’ mastering suites. It’s geared up “to create custom processing chains with a flexible flow and the TG magic on the master bus, or on individual tracks/ groups in a mixing session”, and is said to accurately recreate the console’s gorgeous transistor-based sound, as heard on seminal works including Pink Floyd’s DarkSideof
theMoon and Nirvana’s InUtero. Five modules are included: TG12411 Input, TG12412 Tone (EQ), TG12413 Compressor/ Limiter, TG12414 Filter and Output, incorporating the TG12416 VAL stereo controller. They can be used together in a ‘rack’ or individually, and Waves’ new Meter Bridge plugin enables all running instances of TG Mastering Chain to be visually monitored from a single module.
