FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WAVES ADDS Z-NOISE TO RESTORATION, BROADCAST & PRODUCTION AND DIAMOND BUNDLES

— Waves’ most advanced dynamic noise reduction tool brings
new processing power to these premium collections —

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, September 30, 2008 — Waves Audio has added its powerful Z-Noise noise reduction processor to its acclaimed Restoration, Broadcast & Production and Diamond bundles. Joining forces with X-Noise, X-Hum, X-Crackle, and X-Click, the new Restoration bundle now includes everything needed to revive damaged recordings.

Z-Noise is a unique noise removal processor which reduces a wide variety of unwanted sonic artifacts from all kinds of content. Hiss, ground hum, computer noise and many other undesirable sounds can all be effectively removed with Z-Noise without impacting the quality of the original source. Z-Noise features real-time noise profiling, which allow users to create noise profiles from sources which contain signal and noise, unlike other methods which require a “pure” noise sample. Its innovative transient preservation technique retains the full dynamic impact of source material, while enhanced low-frequency resolution preserves high audio quality. Z-Noise includes both Learn and Extract modes for capturing noise profiles plus a 5-band graphic noise profile EQ, and its Adaptive mode continually updates profiles which change over time. With 24-bit/96kHz resolution and the ability to monitor either the entire output or only the extracted noise, Z-Noise is truly a noise reduction powerhouse.

The new Restoration bundle lists for $1,800 Native, $3,000 for the TDM version. Diamond, Broadcast & Production and Restoration owners with Waves Update Plan coverage can add Z-Noise for $400 through their user accounts.
