The Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter from Waves is a plug-in that recreates the Aphex Aural Exciter process, as delivered by the original hardware from the mid-70s. The hardware unit was so well received at the time that it was even credited as a "session player" on best-selling albums by the likes of Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor.
The original unit provided the ability to increase and enhance presence, brightness, and vibrancy on vocal and instrumental tracks alike, without raising levels. This was particularly useful because multiple passes of tape during multi-tracking would eventually dull some of the high-end details.
Modeled on one of only a few tube-powered units ever made, the Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter plug-in delivers all the unique character of the rare original unit, but with all the advantages of software. The plug-in includes Native and SoundGrid licenses.
