« Not a bad centering plugin »Publié le 08/04/11 à 20:16
Waves is the king when it comes to things such as stability and overall performance. For one, this plugin doesn't take up too much RAM or processing power, and that's a big plus considering a DAW can have tons of different plugins and virtual synths running at any time. The plugins are all cross platform compatible, so anybody with an OS X or Windows machine can run these without any problems. I've never experienced a single issue while running this plugin when it came to things like stability and overall performance. There is one issue, however, that I did come across. These plugins are 32 bit inside of OS X. For me to utilize these in Logic Pro, it needs to run a special bridge application as my DAW is a 64 bit DAW. I'm not a huge fan as to how Logic Pro implements this, and I'm hoping that Waves updates these later on. I've been using the Mercury bundle for the past half a year or so, and it's been awesome.
I've used this a few times before to help bring up vocals in a mix before. I was getting some bizarre phase issues for whatever reason, and I think it was due to the way I was miking them. I'm not entirely sure. Regardless, this helped fix the vocal issue I was having, and I didn't have to re-take the track again. It's a cool plugin, but I don't find myself using it all that often. Solid, but somewhat limited for my application.
