Waves Unveils W43 Noise Reduction Plug-In
Waves Audio has unveiled the third processor in the Waves Post Production line, the W43 Noise Reduction Plug-in. Inspired by the classic, long-out-of-production Cat. 43 hardware noise reduction tool, Waves new W43 builds upon the legacy of this hard-to-find unit that has been a post production favorite for decades. The W43 delivers high-quality, minimal artifact multiband noise reduction on ambient noise like hiss, hum, traffic noise, wind and air conditioning, like the original hardware, while adding all the advantages of software.
Waves W43 offers easy-to-use four-band noise suppression controlled by four faders, a global threshold and an engage button. The W43s workflow approach and interface will be very familiar to engineers who perform noise reduction using the Cat. 43. Both PC- and Mac-compatible, W43 supports multiple simultaneous instances and features true Pro Tools integration, full recall, zero latency, full automation, up to 24-bit, 192kHz resolution, and support for TDM, RTAS, Audio Suite, VST and AU. Also, no degradation of sound resulting from I/O conversion occurs.
Waves’ W43 Noise Reduction Plug-in is available now for $300 Native / $600 TDM and as part of the Waves Mercury bundle. Mercury V7 owners covered by Waves Update Plan receive the W43 at no additional charge. More information on the Waves W43.
