Annonces Waves Vocal Rider
Three new Saturday-only offers at Waves
Waves plugins have always been some of the most stable plugins I've experienced. They're cross platform compatible, so they'll work with both PCs and Macs. As a Mac user, that's a huge advantage for someone like me. They run in 32 bit mode, but Logic uses a wrapper-like application that runs so you don't interfere with your 64 bit interface. I've tried this on various different buses, and it seems to work on anything with ease. It even works nicely on MIDI, which I found a bit surprising. There are no performance issues at all, and that's a huge plus when working in a DAW filled with all kinds of synths and tracks running tons of plugins. These plugins came with my Mercury package, and I've had that for a few months now.
With today's metal vocals, you tend to find a mix of singing, growls, screaming and other types of styles mixed in. It can be a real pain to constantly adjust all of those levels manually, and I've found that this plugin can help quite a bit. When things get very extreme, I find that it can sometimes be a bit odd, but it could just be me dialing it in incorrectly. Regardless, it's a very good plugin that I've used quite a few times before to help level everything out.
I've never had any issues trying to run Waves Ltd. Vocal Rider as it doesn't take up much processing power at all. I have used the plug-in on an Apple G5 desk top that runs with a Pro Tools HD system. The plug-in has always run smoothly for me whenever I have wanted to use it, which hasn't been all that often since the first time I used it. Even if you are running this on a Pro Tools LE system I don't think that you'll have any issues running this as long as you have a system that can run other plug-ins. It really depends on your system and how well it can handle plug-ins.
To be honest, since I first used the Waves Ltd. Vocal Rider about a year ago I have only used it a few more times as I just don't think that it is necessary. I can do exactly what it does without the plug-in and don't think that it saves me enough time to warrant using it. I didn't have to buy the plug-in as I have used it at a studio and I don't think that I would buy one and use it otherwise. While I can see why people will find this helpful, for me it gets in the way more than anything. I don't believe that it is worth the price but would encourage those interested to try it out to see if it will be helpful for them as every engineer likes to work differently...
