Reel ADT - Double Tracking Plug-In for Native Systems (Download)
The Reel ADT from Waves is a plug-in for native based systems that emulates Abbey Road Studios' pioneering process of ADT (Artificial Double Tracking). The effect was initially created at the studios in the 1960s to meet the needs of The Beatles. Using intuitive controls, the doubled signal can be advanced or pushed back to achieve lush-sounding delay and pitch variations.
Each of the signals can be driven separately to add tape saturation. With an authentically modeled valve tape machine sound and emulation of wow and flutter, the plug-in can enhance any track with the impression of two separate takes, and provide results as close as possible to real double tracking. Other classic Abbey Road tape effects such as flanging and phasing can also be achieved with ease.

The King's Microphones - Vintage "Royal" Microphones Models for Native Systems (Download)
The King's MicrophonesNative from Waves is a native based plug-in that recreates the sound of three microphones, previously used exclusively by the British royal family for speeches on momentous occasions.

Each of these microphones, dating back to the 1920s and 1930s, was tailored and tuned especially for its specific user - King George V, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. Beautifully designed and decorated with gold, silver, and chrome adornments bearing the royal coats of arms, each is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece with its own distinctive sonic character.
