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.
