Waves Unleashes Bass Rider Plug-In For Mac & PC
Waves Audio has unleashed Bass Rider, an easy-to-use plug-in that rides bass levels automatically. A companion to Waves’ popular Vocal Rider plugin, Bass Rider delivers quality bass levels, without changing the natural bass sound. Optimized especially for the frequency range and envelope characteristics of bass instruments, Bass Rider covers all the “basses” — DI, amplified, acoustic, synth, upright, etc.
A real timesaver with dedicated studio and live components, Bass Rider keeps bass levels in check and solid throughout a mix. Unlike a compressor, Bass Rider works note by note, without disturbing their inner dynamics, so they sustain and decay naturally. Best of all, since Bass Rider keeps levels steady with automatic gain adjustment, now users can focus on the feel and flow of their bass, and use compression if desired to add color and character.
