FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WAVES RELEASES LOAIR, A NEW PLUG-IN FOR ULTRA LOW FREQUENCY ENHANCEMENT

— More than just a subharmonic generator, LoAir creates and enhances LFE channel content with pinpoint precision —

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, November 17, 2009 — The second in the new line of dedicated Waves Post Production tools, LoAir is a sub-harmonic generating plug-in which creates and enhances LFE content or “rumble.” This tool is perfect for sound designers who want to add dramatic effect to existing audio. LoAir consists of four separate components: Mono-to-Mono, for creating and enhancing subharmonic frequencies on existing LFE tracks; Stereo-to-Stereo, for generating LFE content from Stereo signals (Outputs LFE or Stereo + LFE); 5.0-to-5.1, for generating LFE content from a 5.0 signal; and 5.1-to-5.1, for increasing subharmonic frequencies on existing LFE tracks.

Sound designers and post-production mixers alike will greatly benefit from LoAir. Waves is making this tool available following many requests from users in the Post Production field. Notable for being the first subharmonic plug-in of its kind for Pro Tools, LoAir is more than just a subharmonic generator, as it features adjustable frequency and low-pass filter controls to shape users’ ultra low-end. Plus, it’s the only subharmonic plug-in available which lets users process polyphonic content, as well as create an LFE track from stereo or 5.0 sources.
