Podcasters, YouTubers and content creators may have a simpler way to ensure a high standard of audio for their audiences. The new bundle from Waves can “quickly bring superior sound quality to your content, with pro-level tools that are incredibly intuitive even for content creators who are not audio professionals”, the brand says.
The bundle is comprised of four plug-ins for different uses, all of which are compatible with the major DAWs.
- NS1 Automatic Noise Suppressor removes unwanted background noise.
- Greg Wells VoiceCentric combines an EQ, compressor and de-esser into one smart control, designed to dramatically improve the quality of voice recordings.
- Playlist Rider smooths out the levels of multiple audio sources in the same podcast, live stream or video.
- WLM Plus Loudness Meter ensures audio quality is at the correct loudness level for each platform.
Newcomer to the Waves Audio roster is Playlist Rider, which automatically balances the volume of different sources in realtime, essentially acting as an in-the-box mixing engineer. The plug-in doesn’t perform in the same way as a limiter or compressor, which reduces the dynamic range – instead, it simply rides the fader as required, and can ignore low-volume parts. This plug-in can also be used in a live setting for audio and tech professionals, to balance program sources before or after live shows and during corporate events.
