7 KNOBS ARE BETTER THAN ONE


Here is something that I would like to try. Those clever guys at Waves have come up with something simple and brilliant – The Waves OneKnob Native Plug-in Bundle. It has been designed for anyone who wants to get better-sounding tracks fast and has seven individual plug-ins for seven particular effects – controlled by a single knob. The idea is to provide a quick facility that will focus on one type of sound enhancement, and do it really well. The great thing is that the processors used behind the OneKnob are the same high-quality processors that are used in creating  many hit records.

We are all impatient today and we just want results, we don’t necessarily want to learn at that very moment how for example a Reverb works, we  just want to ‘get there’ and remain focused on the music rather than the process of mixing. These OneKnob plug-ins are apparently perfect for that.  I wish I had a set built into my DAW. Here is a quick look at what each can do:-

Waves OneKnob Features:

Brighter: An intelligent treble booster that adds brightness from the mid-high range on up, Brighter is perfect for brightening up a track or make it cut through the mix.

Driver: Inspired by famous guitar overdrive pedals, Driver is capable of everything from light overdrive to full-on distortion. But it’s not just for guitars; it sounds great as an effect for vocals, piano, synths, drums, bass and more.

Phatter: Phatter is a bass booster that provides a quick way to add bottom, weight and body to bass, keys, kick drums and vocals alike, to thicken them in the mix.

Filter: From the mixing room to the DJ booth, Filter is a powerful sweepable filter with switchable Resonance modes, perfect for full mixes, loops, analog synths and more.

Louder: Using a combination of peak limiting and low-level compression with automatic makeup, Louder effectively makes tracks louder, increasing RMS by up to 24 dB.

Pressure: From light, parallel-style compression to pumping and squashing, Pressure is a versatile dynamics processor, ideal for percussive sources like loops and drum busses.

Wetter: From short, bright ambiences that are felt more than heard, to longer, darker spaces, Wetter adds instant depth to any track, creating the perfect atmosphere.
