Eddie Kramer Tape, Tubes, & Transistors from Waves is a bundle of three plug-ins for tracking and mixing, modeled on vintage analog gear used by Eddie Kramer at Olympic Studios. Created in collaboration with Waves and Kramer, the collection includes the HLS Channel modeled on a channel strip from a Helios mixing console, Kramer Master Tape modeled on a 1/4" reel-to-reel machine, and the PIE compressor, modeled on the analog Pye compressor.

  • Kramer HLS Channel - Modeled Helios Console Channel (Native/SoundGrid, Download)

    The Kramer HLS Channel from Waves is a plug-in that models the microphone preamp and EQ section of a '60s Helios mixing console. The plug-in was developed in association with producer/engineer Eddie Kramer, a prominent engineer at London's Olympic Studios and who used their Helios console during a period that yielded many classic rock n' roll recordings.

    The unique behavior, coloration, and drive of the Helios console's preamps were modeled along with the equalizers, renowned for their sweet saturation, high-end presence, and fat low-frequency boost. For added authenticity the console's inherent noise and hum was also included. The plug-in also features a precision-modeled VU meter that recreates the sensitivity, ballistic behavior, look, and feel of the original.

    Modeled EQ/microphone preamp plug-in
    Based on a rare '60s vintage Helios console
    Modeled mic and line preamp drive
    Developed in association with producer/engineer Eddie Kramer
    Up to 24-bit/96 kHz resolution*
    *Stereo not available at 96 kHz when using TDM
    Mono and stereo components
    SoundGrid license compatible with MultiRack Native, StudioRack Native, MultiRack SoundGrid, StudioRack SoundGrid, and eMotion ST Mixer
  • Kramer Master Tape - Tape Saturation Plug-In (Native/SoundGrid, Download)

    Kramer Master Tape from Waves is a plug-in that models the audio characteristics of a vintage 1/4" reel-to-reel tape machine. The plug-in provides the usual controls found on tape machines, such as adjustable tape speed, bias, and flux, in addition to control over things that were at one time considered faults. Wow and flutter and noise can these days be considered desirable characteristics in some circumstances to add a tape-like signature to digital audio.

    The plug-in also includes what was once an unintended consequence of using tape, namely a flexible slap and feedback delay, ideal for rock, dance, dub, or any other audio application. For recording, mixing, mastering, and more, the plug-in delivers the richness and warmth of real tape saturation to any DAW.

    Modeled tape saturation plug-in
    Based on a rare vintage 1/4" reel-to-reel machine
    Adjustable tape speed, bias, flux, wow and flutter, slap/feedback delay
    Developed in association with producer/engineer Eddie Kramer

  • Kramer PIE Compressor - Dynamics Plug-In (Native/SoundGrid, Download)

    The Kramer PIE Compressor from Waves is a mono/stereo dynamics plug-in modeled on a vintage analog Pye compressor heard on numerous classic rock records. The plug-in emulates the original down to replicating the VU meter's superfast refresh rates, recreating the accuracy, sensitivity, and ballistic behavior of the physical analog meter. The compressor itself has compression ratios up to 5:1 as well as a limiter mode, and features auto make-up gain.

    Modeled compressor plug-in
    Based on a rare '60s vintage Pye compressor
