Annonces Waves Renaissance Channel
Special 24-hour, 1+1 flash sale at Waves
When it comes to things like stability and overall performance, Waves tends to be at the top of the totem pole. I've never experienced a single crash, freeze or hiccup while using any Waves plugin, let alone this one. They all seem to be super stable, which is a huge plus for something as critical as a recording environment. The plugin itself is cross platform compatible, so there is no issue when it comes to using this with either an Apple or Windows based computer. The biggest problem I experienced simply has to do with the recently technological evolution of OSes. My DAW and OS are now 64 bit. However, these plugins are still 32 bit. For Logic Pro to fully utilize this plugin, it needs to run a bridge application, unless I want to gimp down my DAW. It's a bit of a pain, but it works. I'm hoping they update these to 64 bit in the future. I've been using the Mercury bundle for the past half a year or so, and it's been working out great.
I used to use this plugin all the time back when it first came out. I'd always put it on the master buss and start adjusting everything from there. It served me well throughout the years, and I highly recommend it to anybody out there. I've since moved onto another combination, but after typing up this review, I'm thinking of going back and utilizing it again.
Right now I’m running the Waves Ltd. Renaissance Channel on my system at home. We’ve also got it on the systems at the studio where I work, but I’ve used primarily at home. My home system is Pro Tools LE 8 based, which I run on a Mac Book Pro consisting of 4 GB of RAM and a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. I’m also running Pro Tools LE 8 with a Digi 002R audio interface or a Digidesign (now Avid) Micro Box if I’m not at home or a studio. I can’t say that I’ve tried maxing out the usage of this plug-in on this system, but will say that I’ve never had a problem running it for my needs.
The Waves Ltd. Renaissance Channel is a great overall plug-in, as it gives you most of what you need right in one place. It’s a Waves’ plug-in, so definitely don’t expect anything less than a super clean sound as far as plug-ins go. I’ll usually use the individual processors found here in other Waves or other plug-ins, but if I’m just looking to get a quick sound using both EQ and compression, this can be a great place to start. While I probably wouldn’t have bought it if it didn’t come in the full Waves Complete bundle, I’m definitely glad that I do have it…
