Waves Announces Center Plug-In
Waves has announced Center, a new plug-in for final mixes and mastering. Waves Center features a new processor that separates phantom Center content from Side (L/R) content. With Center, you can zero in on the phantom center and bring out or bring down the vocals without affecting everything else. Perfect for post-production engineers and DJs as well, Center lets you reposition, isolate, and even eliminate elements of your mix.
Using a unique dynamic engine which considers the amplitude, frequency, and time envelope of stereo sources, Center gives you the power to radically re-balance your spatial imagery. Adjustable punch, high frequency, and low frequency controls let you enhance detail with maximum impact.
Get centered or get side-tracked. Choose sides or play it down the middle. Find the middle ground, or get a little something on the side. With Waves Center, you really can play the (stereo) field.
» High controls balance of high frequency content between the Center and Sides. 0 – 100 (0=Center)
