Waves Grand Rhapsody Piano - Virtual Instrument Plug-in (Download)

The Grand Rhapsody Piano from Waves is a stereo virtual piano plug-in offering the sounds of the Fazioli F228 piano used on Grammy-winning hits such as Adele's "Hello." It features flexible controls, and is well-suited for multiple genres, from solo piano to contemporary pop. Recorded with eight stereo pairs of microphones by Yoad Nevo in Studio A at Metropolis Studios in London, the sound libraries are available in high- and standard-definition.

Play the Grand Rhapsody Piano from the built-in virtual keyboard or an external MIDI controller. Choose from up to three stereo pairs of microphones and blend them with dedicated level sliders. Delay and polarity controls allow adjustment of the phase relationship of the mics. Soft and sustain pedals are supported, and a level control is provided for the volume of the piano's pedal noise. Change the velocity curve, formant, and sympathetic string resonance to suit different playing styles and sonic preferences. Featuring on-board compression, limiting, EQ, and reverb processing, the plug-in is effectively multiple processors in one.

Run the Grand Rhapsody Piano in a host that supports AAX Native, Audio Units, or VST plug-in formats. Or use it as a standalone application, ideal for live performances where simple configurations are desired.

Waves Flow Motion FM Synth (Native, Download)

The Waves Flow Motion FM Synth combines the best elements of frequency modulation (FM) and analog-style subtractive synthesis in one power instrument, well suited for musicians, producers, engineers, or anyone looking for deep basses, screaming leads, rich pads, and growling FX.

The instrument's design offers a fluid GUI with a graphic FM modulation matrix that connects four powerful mono/poly oscillators with independent waveform and pan controls. Easily modify assignments between the oscillators, using four independent floating LFO/envelope modulators with intuitive drag-and-drop manipulation. A motion screen offers controls for filters, amplitude, EQ, and FX in a traditional subtractive way for added power and flexibility. An onboard 16-step snapshot sequencer allows you to easily capture up to 16 different states of the synth engine and switch between them in real time. Additionally, a 16-step note sequencer/arpeggiator and built-in studio quality FX allow you to explore new sonic territories.

  • Hybrid FM synth combining FM and subtractive synthesis
  • Intuitive graphic FM modulation matrix with instant visual feedback
  • 1000+ strong preset library, including exclusive artist presets
  • Four high-resolution oscillators
  • Four flexible LFOs and envelope modulators
  • 16-step snapshot sequencer
    • Sequence up to 16 recallable snapshots per patch

Waves Codex Wavetable Synth - Synthesizer Software (Native, Download)

The Codex Wavetable Synthesizer from Waves is a polyphonic synthesizer offering a range of sounds from analog and acoustic emulations, to intricate and evolving textures. Its sound source is an advanced granular wavetable engine, and the synthesizer functions as a plug-in or standalone. Hundreds of sound presets are included, as is the ability to import custom audio files and transform them into wavetables.

Advanced formant control technology allows Codex to provide direct control over the acoustic resonance of a sound while maintaining its resonance character, and high-resolution FFT-based automatic interpolation technology results in smooth morphing while sweeping through wavetables. The analog subtractive synthesis component offers a more traditional method to further shape the sound using filters, envelopes, LFOs, a modulation matrix, arpeggiator/sequencer, 4-band EQ, and distortion, delay, reverb and chorus effects.

Waves Bass Slapper - Virtual Instrument (Software)

Available for download, Waves Bass Slapper is a virtual instrument that puts the sound of slap-bass under your fingertips, allowing you to achieve funky slaps and plucky patterns by means of your MIDI keyboard. In sampling this virtual instrument, Waves made sure to slap, pop, and more, in various neck-positions, opting to record the notes as a bass player would choose to play them on the fingerboard. This aspect of the sampling process is important, as different positions change the articulation of all those desirable and musical effects surrounding the slap—the thumb pops, hammer-ons, muted hits, and so on. The resulting tones are more authentic as a result of this method.

Over 3,700 samples have been utilized in fashioning this virtual instrument, including slaps, pulls (with pointer and index fingers), hammer-ons, hammer-offs, percussive samples, release samples, slides, and special effects. Each of these samples have been recorded at different velocities. Round robin samples are also on hand, so you don’t get that machine-gun effect when you repeat the same note over and over again.

Bass Slapper comes with a standard and a high-definition library. The former is more useful for the recording stage, or for rigs where storage space is at a premium. Once you’ve recorded your samples, you can load the high-definition library and use those for mix. Bass Slapper is compatible with Mac and Windows platforms, and is compatible with AU, VST, VSTi, VST3, and AAX formats. The virtual instrument also works as a standalone application.
