FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Waves Audio Unveils Sub Align Plugin

139TH INTERNATIONAL AES CONVENTION, New York, NY, October 30, 2015 Waves Audio (booth 437) introduces Sub Align, a revolutionary tool that provides an original solution to a problem that Live FOH engineers repeatedly encounter, and for which, until now, there was no all-embracing solution: aligning sub and top speakers in unaligned and inaccessible full-range PA systems. Waves Sub Align is a must-have survival tool for any live sound engineer, enabling full control over your sub and top alignment.

The problem:
The physical position and distance between tops and subs are critical for the overall punch and clarity of a PA system. However, most performers and engineers around the world play small and mid-size venues where very often the tops and subs are not properly aligned; they are usually stacked somewhere all the way in the back or sides of the venue, in order to clear space for tables, etc., causing the sound coming out of the unaligned PA system to be smeared, unfocused and usually with low impact. Moreover, the system processor is not accessible and the PA subs are tied in with the tops.

The Solution
Sub Align puts you in charge of the venue’s PA sound with a simple and original solution: by giving you control over the delaybetween your tops and subs and creating a crossover point between them, it enables you to “move” your subs back or forward in relation to the tops, until you reach the alignment point that sounds best to your ears. No longer do you have to waste precious time fighting unaligned PA systems with EQs and compressors. To achieve extra clarity and punch, Sub Align also gives you control over the subs’ volume and polarity/phase.

Sub Align puts the control in users’ hands, giving them the ability to get a clearer and punchier mix, no matter the venue.
