Waves Audio Now Shipping the Butch Vig Vocals Plugin

— Created in collaboration with GRAMMY®-winning producer Butch Vig —


TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, March 19, 2015 Waves Audio, a leading provider of digital signal processing solutions, is now shipping the Butch Vig Vocals plugin, part of the Waves Signature Series. Widely considered one the most influential rock producers of recent decades, Butch Vig helped spawn an entirely new rock genre. From Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins to Foo Fighters, Green Day and his own band Garbage, Butch Vig has contributed his signature sound to some of the most legendary albums of the modern rock era.

One of the defining elements of the “Butch Vig Sound” is Vig’s unique vocal stamp. The celebrated producer ushered in the sound of distorted vocals in a beautifully musical way, and this is an integral part of the sound that the Butch Vig Vocals plugin faithfully recreates.

With instantly hyped vocals that cut through the mix and a sound that is dripping with character, Butch Vig Vocals now gives everyone the opportunity to work with the sound of a true rock innovator.
