Annonces Waves Eddie Kramer HLS Channel
Waves offers flash sale on HLS Channel
Waves plugins are some of the most famous plugins out there, and it's for good reason. They're cross platform, and considering I'm a Mac user, that's a big plus for me. They're also extremely reliable. I've never had a Waves plugin directly crash my session when inserting it into a buss. The same can't be said for certain other plugins out there. I really wish it was 100% 64 bit, but I have a feeling it'll be a few years before we see that. On the other hand, Logic employs a special converter, so it's not a huge deal. It doesn't take up much memory like some plugins do, so you're free to use this quite a bit. I've been a long time Waves user, and I've had the Mercury bundle for a few months now. Can't say I ever read the manual simply because a lot of these plugins are fairly self explanatory.
I don't use this plugin nearly as much as certain other ones. I prefer a much more transparent EQ for the most part, and when I want character, I'll usually use some sort of compressor. I find that a nice vintage compressor will be much cooler on guitars than a vintage EQ for whatever reason. You'll probably want to use this sparingly, regardless. It's a pretty powerful plugin, so keep that in mind when selecting various settings.
I'm currently running the Waves Ltd. Eddie Kramer HLS Channel and the full Waves Complete bundle at home as well as at the studio where I'm working. I only recently got it at home but had used it a few times at the studio, but really had only messed around with it until I got it myself. At home I'm running it in Pro Tools LE 8 on a Mac Book Pro consisting of a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM, while at the studio we are running it with a Pro Tools HD system. On either system I've been able to get them up on a series of tracks without performance issues. If you have a lesser system you might run into some problems, but chances are that you have or are looking into getting some Waves plug-ins that you know this and already have an adequate system.
I've definitely been loving the real feel that the Waves Ltd. Eddie Kramer HLS Channel has to offer. I'm a big fan of plug-ins like this that model hardware as it gives you a familiar interface to work with and makes it seem a bit more life like. As far as the sound of the HLS Channel goes, it's also quite realistic. I've used Helios channels before, but not the one that this is supposed to be modeling. If I can compare this EQ with the real Helios One strip that I've used, I have to say that it's not comparable as the hardware Helios just can't be beat. Having said this, for a software emulator this thing sounds pretty damn good and isn't nearly as much money or as hard to find a real Helios. I'd recommend at least trying out the HLS Channel if you're at all interested in Helios gear, this series of Kramer plug-ins, or simply are looking for a nice channel strip plug-in to work with.
