Product Description

Declared “The Baron of Techno” by legendary BBC Radio presenter John Peel, Dave Clarke has been amongst the top tier of global techno DJs and producers of the past two decades. He is one of the few artists able to command the respect of demanding listeners everywhere, from massive outdoor festivals such as Tommorowland to the grittiest clubs of the underground scene. In addition to producing his own brand of hard-spun beats, Dave is also a devoted fan and pioneer of electronic music, with an uncanny ability to put together a perfect mix of tracks by his peers, earning him widespread popularity as a radio DJ with his long-running radio show “White Noise.”

When Dave leaves the radio studio and enters the recording studio, he puts on a different hat and relies on a different set of tools. Waves’ equalizers, effects, metering tools and tape saturation plugins form the basis of the Dave Clarke sound and of the pumping techno trails heard on remixes for the likes of Depeche Mode, The Chemical Brothers, John Foxx, I am Kloot, and Louisahhh!!! & Maelstrom, to name just a few from his 25-year career.

Chosen exclusively by Dave himself, the Dave Clarke EMP Toolbox contains seven of these supreme sound-crafting processors – the ones he uses regularly in his mixing and mastering sessions. With this collection of plugins, electronic music producers of any style will find what they need to give their mixes a professional lift. And if techno or electro is your trade, you are sure to find inspiration in this hand-picked suite.

Features

  • Seven sound-crafting plugins for electronic music production
  • Hand-picked by Dave Clarke himself based on the plugins he uses most
  • Includes EQs, tape saturation, metering and effects for mixing and mastering

PLUGINS

Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter

Modeled on one of only a few tube-powered units ever made, the Waves Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter plugin delivers all the unique character of the rare original hardware unit, with all the advantages of software.

When it was originally introduced in the mid-1970s, the Aphex Aural Exciter brought its distinctive sound to select sessions by leading recording artists, traveling from studio to studio as an exclusive (and expensive) rental unit.

A true groundbreaker, the original Aural Exciter was highly regarded for its ability to increase and enhance presence, brightness, and vibrancy on vocal and instrumental tracks alike. It was even credited as a "session player" on best-selling albums by the likes of Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor, engineered by Val Garay, who worked closely with us on the development of the plugin.

Features

  • Modeled plugin based on the original tube-powered hardware
  • Developed in association with Aphex
  • Adds brightness, vibrancy and depth
  • Increases presence without raising levels
  • Perfect for vocal and instrumental tracks alike
  • Mix and AX modes for insert or send configurations

API 560

Based on the 1967 classic, the API 560 10-Band graphic equalizer features precision filtering and high headroom, ideal for signal enhancement and room tuning. The API 560’s curve shaping potential is unmatched, while API’s unique “Proportional Q” design intuitively widens the filter bandwidth at lower boost/cut levels and narrows it at higher settings. And since boost and cut characteristics are identical, previous actions can be easily undone. For precision equalization with unmatched versatility, turn to the EQ heard on top recordings for decades: the API 560.

Features

  • Modeled vintage EQ plugin
  • Developed in association with API
  • Familiar one octave centers
  • 12 dB of boost/cut per band
  • “Proportional Q” narrows filter Q at extremes
  • Additional resolution in the critical ±4 dB region
  • Clip level > +28 dBu

Dorrough Stereo

The Waves Dorrough Meter Collection (Stereo) features models of Dorrough’s most popular loudness meters: 280D/240D, 380D/340D, and 40AES/EBU. Developed in association with Dorrough Electronics, these meters provide precision loudness monitoring for all stereo audio scenarios. Whether used as input meters to attain optimal recording levels, as group/auxiliary meters to achieve optimal group loudness, or as master output meters, the Waves Dorrough meters do it all.

Features

  • Modeled stereo meter plugin
  • Developed in association with Dorrough Electronics
  • Super-fast peak response
  • Sum and difference energies for optimal stereo-to-mono compatibility
  • Left/right phase correlation
  • Displays number of 'overs'

Kramer Master Tape

Developed in association with Eddie Kramer, the Kramer Master Tape plugin is modeled on a rare vintage 1/4" reel-to-reel machine. With adjustable tape speed, bias, flux, wow & flutter, and noise parameters, the Kramer Master Tape provides comprehensive control over the contours of your sound. And to top it off, we’ve added a flexible slap & feedback delay, ideal for rock, dance, dub, you name it. For recording, mixing, mastering, and more, bring the richness and warmth of real tape saturation to your DAW with the Kramer Master Tape plugin. It’s the reel deal.

Features

  • Modeled tape saturation plugin
  • Based on a rare vintage 1/4" reel-to-reel machine

Scheps 73

The Waves Scheps 73 is a colorful 3-band EQ modeled on the classic 1073 console's EQ and mic preamp module and developed in association with world-renowned mixing engineer Andrew Scheps (Adele, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Sabbath, Lana Del Ray, Metallica, Jay-Z.)

Empowered by Waves cutting-edge technologies, the Scheps 73 EQ features interrelated bands that adhere to the 1073’s original specs and precisely emulate its behavior: a fixed 12kHz high-frequency band, switchable low and midrange bands with cut and boost controls, and an 18dB/octave high-pass filter. Additionally, for the first time ever, a little-known 10kHz midrange band discovered in the original 1073 schematics but operable only on the rare 1078 channel strip has been modeled and incorporated into the plugin. And to top it all off, the Waves MS matrix has been added to let you apply different equalization to mid and side stereo content.

Using innovative procedures to model the acclaimed Marinair transformer, Waves has meticulously captured all the sonic characteristics of the 1073, including its harmonic distortion. These overtones were tweaked to perfection by Andrew Scheps himself, resulting in beautiful and authentic saturations.

Whether used for recording, mixing or mastering, Scheps 73 lets you enjoy all the warm tones of a fabled piece of studio hardware, in-the-box!

Features

  • Developed in association with world-renowned mixing engineer Andrew Scheps
  • Based on the classic 1073
  • High, mid and low interrelated bands and a high-pass filter
