Anything new from the Waves camp?

    I have to admit , been a little lazy lately. I'm curious to find if Waves has any new processing/mastering bundles. I know they offer the "masters bundle" but do they have anything that they may have updated ? I like their programs. I think TC Electronics has a software version of their Finalizer processor. Great S/W. I wish I had more of it.

    Hi dab!
    The finalizer plug-in version is named TC Master X (3+5). It has been around for at least 5 years.

    It is really nice for some applications, like Dance Music/Pop/Soul butI would not recommend it for purely acoustic stuff like classical, bossa nova and so.
    I have been using it since version 1.0.

    However it is said to know that TC has not developed the whole version for PT HD.

    They just released the 3 band version, quite good also, but not as flexible as the full blown 5 band version (sometimes more bands can make huge damage to the final junior mastering as mix balance gets f.. up).

    Take a look at Vintage Warmer from PSP also. It is really nice for rock stuff and pretty cheap.

    I have been using it for drum tracks ( kick, snare) as well as for bass drums, guitars.

    I have not examined the MC2000 yet but I guess that Waves Linear Phase is quite interesting. However, the linear phase issue can sometimes be not the road to heaven.

    Nice week!
    :w:

    My understanding is that the plug 3-band version is from the Finalizer and 5-band plug version is from the TC DBmax which is their broadcast processor and much more powerful/flexable big brother to the Finalizer. I have the hardware DBmax and love it.
