FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WAVES UPGRADES 360° SURROUND TOOLKIT WITH VERSION 4.6
Leading digital signal processing innovator Waves Ltd.
has released an updated version of its acclaimed 360° Surround Toolkit,
comprising an astounding set of powerful tools for surround audio production.
The latest edition offers support for Windows XP, along with new HTDM
and RTAS support.
The Waves 360° Surround Toolkit Update 5.0 provides
the most flexible, effective and great-sounding surround localization,
spatialization and envelopment capabilities, with elegant handling of
rotation, width, distance panning, reverb and dynamics.
The Waves 360° Update 4.6 features support for Windows
XP users, who now have access to all the processing power and comprehensive
control offered by 360°, including TDM Accel, Native (DAE) and HTDM
support. Macintosh OS X users will also benefit from the increased power
of additional processing options offered via HTDM and RTAS.
The V4.6 features and functionality announced for Waves’
360° Surround Bundle build on the impressive abilities of seven
renowned plug-ins, which were specifically designed to meet the demands
of multi-channel audio processing.
The Surround Manager allows the calibration of a studio
setup for all industry standard surround release formats, and includes
flexible bass management, while the Surround Reverb includes six channels
of completely de-correlated reverberation with special front and rear
surround control. The Surround Imager adds distance panning, generating
early reflections and shuffling (frequency-dependent localization) for
greater low frequency spatialization.
The Surround Limiter is a 6-channel implementation of
the acclaimed L2, while the Surround Compressor provides dynamic compression
with flexible channel coupling and grouping for surround applications.
There’s also a high quality, extra-steep lowpass filter for the
LFE channel for fingertip control of the most powerful sub-bass sound
The Surround Mixdown plug-in allows the derivation of
Quad, LCR, Stereo and Mono mixes directly from the surround mix, greatly
adding to studio productivity and compatibility between different format
mixes of the same material; while the Surround Panner provides rotation
and width for any input.
See your nearest authorized Waves dealer for further information
on the 360° Surround Toolkit. Update 4.6 is available as part of
the Waves Update Plan to current participants who are registered 360°
owners. Visit your Waves dealer or find out more at www.waves.com.
