    Manny Marroquin Triple D explained and analyzed in Q-Clone

    #Waves Manny Marroquin Triple D direct link:

    When activated we see that the freq response is affected a little.

    Bypassing the modules doesn't change this which makes us think the plugin uses multiband filters and compression or dynamic EQs paired with some built-in analog simulation.

    If we increase the intensity we can see how certain areas of frequencies are reduced, FREQ allows fine tuning the position of the reduction.

    The speaker knob isolates the area where the module is operating allowing to hear exactly the frequencies that are being affected.

    #DeHARSHER works the same but acts in the mid high area which is the most audible part of the spectrum, this module can soften the sound.

    #DeBOXY acts in the low mid area which is where the naturalness and body of the sound lies but can also sound dark and undefined.

    Using a dynamic EQ instead of an EQ in this area can define the sound without losing warmth.

    Mixing with Waves Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain


    1- Learn to use the LIMITER module in detail:
    2- Watch TAPE EQ analyzed with Q-Clone:

    ONE THING we want to make clear is that the TAPE EQ on the INPUT section IS NOT a tape machine simulator, it is a filter designed to counter the frequency changes introduced to the original signal when it is transferred through some tape machines to the Mastering Chain, so TAPE EQ can be viewed as the OPPOSITE (in terms of equalization) of that introduced by the tape machines commonly used at Abbey Road. We did a video just to explain this control with a visual analysis here: The effect is as interested as the tape itself and can be used to control harsh instruments or mixes even though, technically, if you are not using a tape machine before this plugin you don't need it.

    Save an additional 10% off any purchase at Waves Audio using this link:

    Even though the name says MASTERING don't get confused, sound is sound and these modules can be used for anything from MIXING to TRACKING as long as it sounds good. The Limiter can be turned into a very basic compressor by lowering the RATIO below 10 and the EQ is perfect for instrument GROUPS like we did in this video. There so much this plugin can do that you better go read the USER MANUAL but still we wanted to give you a heads up on the main steps we consider the basics to start right away, explain some of the little details anyone can miss at first and let you hear how it sounds on one of our songs!

    Direct link:

    From the website:

    A modular #mastering chain #plugin modeled after the EMI TG12410 Transfer #Console used in all Abbey Road's mastering suites since the early '70s to this day. Use the Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain to create custom processing chains with a flexible flow and the TG magic on the master bus, or on individual tracks/groups in a mixing session.

    The distinct solid-state transistor-based sound of the TG12410 has proven itself time and again over many decades. Whether it's used for mastering as a complete console, or for mixing with only select modules, the TG brings nothing less than magic — the same magic heard on albums like Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon, Nirvana's In Utero, Radiohead's OK Computer and Ed Sheeran's +. Thanks to this Waves/Abbey Road collaboration, the TG12410 is available outside of Abbey Road Studios and you can now bring the very same magic to your own productions.

    Just like the original console, the TG Mastering Chain plugin is made out of modules (or cassettes):

    TG12411 Input Module
    TG12412 Tone Module (EQ)
    TG12413 Compressor/Limiter Module
    TG12414 Filter Module
    TG12416 V.A.L (Spread) Module (stereo component only) incorporated into the Output Module.
    Modules can be interchanged (except for input/output modules) and switched on/off to allow for a flexible processing flow and creating custom chains. Individual modules can be used on different tracks and group buses in a mixing session, as well as on the master bus in mastering sessions.

    The compressor/limiter module offers two flavors — Original and Modern — and is coupled with 48 dB/Oct linear-phase sidechain filters to help you take complete control over your sound.

    Original — aggressive and dirty just like the '70s and exactly how we modeled it.Modern — an original Waves and Abbey Road design based on the TG topology, that will help you get pristine sound with higher levels of perceived loudness.

    Alongside the TG Mastering Chain is the Meter Bridge component (separate plugin), offering a new approach to metering. Open one Meter Bridge component on any channel and get access (via drop-down) to all Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain instances in the session. Get a clear reading of VU, PPM, Phase and Peak at a glance, and stay focused on the music.

    With different processing modes (Stereo/Duo/MS) and monitoring modes (Stereo/Mono/L/R/M/S), the Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain plugin is truly a powerful tool. Use it in the studio or for live sound with a dedicated Live component.

    Overview of Waves API 560 EQ Plugin


    // An overview of the API 560 plugin from Waves Audio.



    Hello. My name is Eric Tarr.

    In this video, I'll provide an overview to the Waves API 560 equalizer plug-in.

    First, I'll demonstrate the spectral processing characteristics, and then let you hear it in action. This plug-in is modeled after the API 560 hardware equalizer. It is a 10-band graphic EQ, which means there are ten separate peaking or bell shaped filters with fixed frequency, but variable amplitude.

    The frequencies of the 560 are spaced out in octave increments, which means from one band to the next, the frequency is either doubled or halved.

    Let me demonstrate the plug-in now by making use of the Waves Q-Clone to visualize the spectral curve.

    Here, you can see as I increase the amplitude of the 1kHz band, the bell shaped curve shows up in Q-clone.

    This is also true for any of the other bands as well.

    One interesting thing to know about the API 560 is that each bell shaped curve has proportional Q or bandwidth. This means that the bandwidth is wide when there's a small change in amplitude, and the bandwidth is narrow when there's a large change in amplitude.

    Here, you can see that when I change the amplitude by a small amount, the 3dB down point is wider than when I change the amplitude by a large amount.

    Here, the 3dB down point is much narrower. This allows for a wide range of flexibility with the plug-in, as the 560 is capable of various smooth shaping, as well as very dramatic equalization.

    The interaction between adjacent bands also opens up a wide range of creative possibilities.

    Let me demonstrate how the plug-in sounds using a lead vocal.


    Here, I'll make use of some of the included presets with the plug-in.


    Notice that the plug-in adds a fullness to the low end and a clarity to the upper mids without ever sounding harsh.

    The last controls to show you on the plug-in are the output gain control, the polarity invert switch, and the ability to turn on and off the analog modeling.

    I'll play it out now and let you hear the plugin work its magic.

    Mix Tutorial: Waves SSL G-Channel Strip Plugin


    Learn compression:
    Learn to mix hip-hop:
    Improve your ears:
    Mixing tips:

    An overview of the Waves G-Channel Strip Plugin.



    Using Waves SSL G-Channel Strip & G Master Buss Compressor to mix a multitrack drum recording.

    These plugins as part of the Waves SSL 4000 Bundle. They're PCM Mac platform compatible. They support TDM, RTAS, Audiosuite, VST, and AU plugin formats. There is mono and stereo versions of the plugin. You can use these on sessions up to 96 kHz and up to a 24-bit depth.

    I have 7 tracks of recorded audio from microphones: I have a kick in mic, kick out, snare top, snare bottom, stereo pair of overheads, stereo pair of rooms. And then I have an audio track here — a stereo track of printed reverb from an outboard reverb unit.

    I'm gonna be doing parallel compression on my drum mix. So I have a clean aux here that the outputs of these audio tracks are going into. Almost no compression, but then on my other aux channel I have a lot of compression. They'll be parallel. These are both going into my drum buss auxiliary bus. I'm gonna be using the SSL compressor just to add a slight bit of limiting to make sure that I'm not clipping the combined signal.

    Without any processing the drums sound pretty good, but they're gonna be a bit of work if they're gonna sit in a mix.

    With the SSL G-Channel, there's an EQ section and a dynamics section. You can change the internal routing so you can put the EQ before the dynamics or the dynamics before the EQ. The way I've got it set up is I've got these filters first as the first thing that happens when the audio enters the plugin. There's a high pass filter and low pass filter. What I'm doing is just rolling off a little bit of the low end to tighten up in case there's some low rumble.

    In the dynamics section, there's an SSL style compressor, SSL style gate or expander. Basic controls you have for the compressor: ratio, threshold, release. Then you can switch between fast attack and release. For my kick I just have, you know, 3 to 4 dB of gain reduction. Medium release time, I'm gonna be setting the threshold for a couple of dB of gain reduction. I have a slow attack because I want the transients of the signal to pass without being compressed and then the tail of the signal to be compressed a lot. What's that's gonna do is emphasize the transient, make the drums a more punchy.

    For my expander, I have a range to control how much expansion is going on. You have a release to control after the signal drops below the threshold, when it's going to stop gain reduction. I'm using a fast attack because so as soon as the drum hit goes above the threshold, the signal passes through the gate/expander, and I'm setting the threshold so it really tightens up my drum hit, really emphasizes the attack or the transient of the hit to make it more punchy.

    Then for EQ, there's a low shelf and high shelf. There's two bell shaped portions of the EQ for a low-mid and high-mid. You can select the frequency — how much you're gonna boost of cut. Then the Q of the bell. So let me play you back the kick drum and you can hear what I'm doing.


    Sounds a little boxy. Sounds tight now because I'm using the dynamics section to really emphasize the attack, boosting a little bit of the low end, cutting out around 3K where is sounds boxy. Boosting around 2K to give it that snap. Boosting about 5K for click and high end air.

    Similar with the kick out mic and snare. Taking out some of that ring in the close mics, but then the overheads I'm still gonna keep a lot of that ring. Boosting around 200 to 300 Hz because that's where the fundamental frequency of the snare drum is. Much less compression on overheads, a lower ratio going on, rolling off a lot of the low end, and I found some frequencies that I didn't like with a sharp Q around 800 and 1000-1500. Adding a bit of top end to sharpen up the sound. I squashed the room mics so I've got a fast release and a high ratio to get a lot of gain reduction. I'm not using the expander, roll off again the low end like the overheads. Found some frequencies I didn't really like.. And added some top end. With the reverb I don't have any processing. I basically have EQ set flat and no dynamics.

    Next let's get to the buss compressor. The buss compressor has some similar sort of controls for the compression: threshold, make up gain, attack and release. You can select your ratio here.

    For the clean portion, I have the compressor set up with no gain reduction: slow attack, fast release. For compression I've got a high amount of gain reduction. I'm using some make up gain, pretty fast attack, pretty fast release. 4:1 ratio.

    Secrets & Magic of the Pultec EQ


    Save an additional 10% off any purchase at Waves Audio using this link:

    PuigTec EQs:

    Note: the music in this video is just background music, the audio is not processed through the plugin, only Q-Clone.

    When activating the plugin we will see that simply passing the signal through the circuit affects the frequency response slightly. As we have seen before, situations like these were common in vintage analog devices and only the best emulation plugins reproduce the hardware with this level of detail. As this change is largely just an increase in volume we can reduce GAIN by -1.3dB to compensate. Now we can see that when activating the plug only the ends are reduced very slightly. If we move LOW FREQ from 100 to 60Hz the small reduction of highs will be virtually corrected but if we continue moving it towards 30 and 20Hz we will see how in fact the high frequencies are going to be increased. Of course none of this makes much difference in an instrument track although it can act significantly on the master bus. In any case you can simply insert the Pultec and put LF at 20Hz to increase the brightness and add the character of the EQ similarly as we do with the bass of the Helios channel (Watch One more thing about the Helios Kramer HLS Channel:

    The following particularity of this device has been described masterfully by Boz Digital Labs in the video Tech Talk: Pultec EQs ( and is limited to the LOW BOOST and LOW ATTEN controls only when they are used in combination. As you can see LOW BOOST is a shelf filter that increases the bass, LOW ATTEN is a similar filter that reduces the bass and LOW FREQ is a switch that affects both LOW BOOST & ATTEN, so far nothing special... But when both LOW BOOST and LOW ATTEN are used in combination, something happens that few could have foreseen. The logical thing is that BOOST would increase the lows and ATTEN counteract that increase but since their curves are not identical the result is a bass shelf boost combined with a mid bell cut.

    Imagine having this shape and control in the 50s!

    The magic of this curve is that, similar to the combination of a HPF with a bass boost as we have seen previously (link), it balances the low frequency increase making the change less drastic and more musical. But the real magic is that LOW FREQ can control the position of the mid cut without practically affecting the low shelf boost. Some modern EQs include this type of curve directly under the command of a single knob such as the Bass Shift of bx_digital, in comparison the real Pultec offers 4 positions while bx_ only has 3 (A, B and C).

    Note: not all Pultec emulations do the first part, the Waves one was emulated from a very old and famous unit that has been well maintained preserving the original circuit, modern clones and other plugins might not behave the same.

    Soundtoys Decapitator analyzed in Q-Clone


    Decapitator Analog Saturation Modeler direct link:

    Note: the background music in this video is just that, background music.

    Watch Another video about Decapitator? (things you might not know) for a similar test with audio signal passed through the plugin:

    As with any good analog #saturation plugin #Soundtoys #Decapitator simulates the frequency response and hardware character in its initial state, even when DRIVE is at zero. This is useful when you need to add a minimum of color and analog flavor without creating audible distortion. Simply rotate between the STYLES until you find the one that works for you.

    As we have seen previously, LOW CUT is an HPF. THUMP is a boost typical of the analog filters located just at the cutoff frequency.

    HIGH CUT is an LPF. STEEP changes the fall of the cut making it more precise.

    TONE is a tilt EQ, a very effective tone control that achieves very remarkable changes because, while increasing one half of the spectrum, the other decreases and vice versa.

In many cases the gain has not been optimized as we showed in our video How we optimize the levels of Waves NLS Non Linear Summer ( because the goal is to create variation and take advantage of the dynamic response of the Channel without adding #saturation, in others that may not be visible, the gain has been fully optimized.

    Waves Manny Marroquin Triple D - THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE


    Full guide and demo of Waves Manny Marroquin Triple D plugin. The three D's stand for DeBoxy, DeHarsher, and DeEsser.

    MM Triple D was made with vocals in mind. If your singer sounds boxy, harsh, or there is sibilance, you can take care of all of that with this single plugin.

    But you can use Triple D on other sources as well. Try it on dialogue tracks, guitars (especially high gain), cymbals, piano, and any other source where you want to remove a low mid 'boxy' sound, a high mid harsh sound, or a top end 'sssshhh' sound.

    And this plugin is more than just an EQ. It's actually more of a 3 band compressor/limiter that dynamically reduces these areas only when they are too loud. This will assure that you don't destroy your track just to remove some annoying frequencies.

    How to route and mix vocals w/ aux tracks when you want multiple layers of parallel processing.

    - Waves Vocal Rider

    Transcript Exerpts:

    Today is about aux tracks for greater control when doing parallel processing. Today is lead vocal, then I'll do more on bass, kick, snare.

    We've got lead vocal level. I'm setting this lead vocal track, processing it with some EQ, some compression, and that's going out to a lead vocal level.

    The lead vocal level is here, and that's getting treated with EQ, compression. I'm parallel compressing it, and if you look at parallel compression lead p-comp is sent out to the lead vocal level, so the dry and parallel compression are meeting at the last chain of processing. But more importantly, level between parts.

    Let's solo her vocal and mute the parallel chain. Now I'm going to un-mute the parallel chain. Then we've got the Manny Marroquin plugin. Got the Manny EQ and I'm using that after all of that compression to bring some classiness, some air. Then Waves Vocal Rider. I'll side chain the music to the vocals so that I can keep the vocal on top. I've given the lead vocal quite a bit of love when it comes to automation there. So that's impacting how that signal gets sent into the compressors, as well as the parallel compression.

    All vocals, drums, percussion, low-end, all music, and the only two getting compression are the all drums and then I'm treating the music a different way with the slate stuff.

    I wanted the drums to be heard more than the music so I dipped the music out at that one little section. On this song I didn't do what I normally do, which is drop the overall level by one dB, and then pull up at the pre-chorus by half a dB, and then pull up for the chorus back to zero. Between the pre section you've got some percussion, production, drums and strings.

    Dans cette vidéo, je fais la review de l'equaliseur hybride H-EQ (waves). Cet outil très complet est un mélange d'EQ vintage et d'EQ paramétrique. Grâce à ses 7 filtres par bandes (modélisés d'après des EQ de consoles analogiques légendaires), celui ci permet donc autant des équalisations chirurgicales pour, notamment, le nettoyage fréquentiel que des boosts d'#EQ avec une couleur/chaleur facon analogique.

    Settings for GLUE in Waves SSL G-Master Bus Compressor


    Watch the second part The Glue Compression with Cytomic: What's different?:

    The goal of Glue Compression is to create cohesion and coherent movement between the different elements of a mix to simulate the experience captured by our ears when we are in front of an orchestra. The position of the controls varies according to the material to be processed, that is why in this video we want to explain what we consider the starting point for Glue Compression which is naturally the least invasive. Remember that there are no rules and you should always do what's best for the song. Finally we want to clarify that Glue Compression is a technique to compress sound not a model or a brand of compressor although it is quite safe to say that the compressor most associated with this technique is the SSL G Master Bus Compressor.

    Based on the renowned master buss center compressor of the SSL 4000 G console, the Waves SSL G-Master Buss Compressor captures the unique sound of the original’s IC input and twin VCA gain-reduction amplifier design. Prized by top engineers for its ability to “glue together” tracks, the SL 4000 G master buss center compressor is ideal for taming piano dynamics or adding punch to drums and percussion. Now, the ultimate finalizer that transforms a mix into a finished record can be yours - in the box.

    Perfect for tightening up final mixes

    CLA MixHub vs MixHub Lite | Null test

    Waves CLA MixHub direct link:

    Track on the left: MixHub.
    Track on the right: MixHub Lite + 0 latency phase inversion switch.

    As we can see, there is no total cancellation but at -128dB we do not hear anything either. Whoever thinks this is a reason not to use Lite should consider a career in nuclear physics. It is worth clarifying that the only difference between MixHub and the Lite version is in the EQ section, the rest of the plugin is exactly the same.
