Waves - W43 - Noise Reduction Plug-In (Native)
More Info

The W43 from Waves is a noise reduction plug-in inspired by, and built on the legacy of the renowned CAT 43 processor. Ambient noise such as hiss, hum, traffic, wind and air conditioning noise can all wreak havoc on film/video production dialog tracks.

With four fixed frequency bands, the W43 is an affordable, easy-to-use plug-in for post production that delivers high quality noise reduction with minimal artifact (like the original hardware), while providing all the advantages of software, such as multiple simultaneous instances.

This version is for use with any Native computer system where the host software supports Audio Units, RTAS and Audio Suite, or VST plug-in formats.
