FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Waves Audio Unveils MetaFilter Plugin

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, January 29, 2014 Waves Audio has unveiled its MetaFilter plugin, a versatile sound-shaping filter. Designed around a modulatable multimode filter using Waves’ proprietary Virtual Voltage technology, Waves MetaFilter has everything users need in a sound-shaping filter plugin. The versatile MetaFilter creative effects unit provides all the warmth, depth and fatness of classic analog filters, with the modern control and endless flexibility that uniquely characterize Waves tools.

MetaFilter lets users individually modulate the filter cutoff, resonance and delay time using three separate modulators – 16-step sequencer, LFO and Envelope follower – which make it easy to achieve effects such as filter sweeping, tremolo, auto-wah, rhythmic gating, ducking and hypnotic modulating delays with saturation buildups.

With intuitive controls that are inviting and enjoyable to use, MetaFilter allows users to effortlessly customize and program their own presets, and due to its easy-to-use MIDI Learn capabilities, the plugin can be controlled from any MIDI control device, perfect for live DJ performances. Moreover, when connected to a MIDI keyboard it can actually be utilized for playing the filter cutoff.

Whether it's used for creating rhythmic loops and tracks from sound bites, adding a subtle effect to a guitar part, or simply mangling a vocal track just for the fun of it, the endless possibilities and versatility of the MetaFilter make it an essential tool for creating and producing innovative, eccentric and cutting-edge music, in the studio and on stage.

MetaFilter features:

  • Three separate modulators: 16-step sequencer, LFO and Envelope follower
  • “Fat” analog sound quality
  • Intuitive MIDI Learn
  • Fully modulatable analog delay
  • Powered by Virtual Voltage technology
  • Endless sound-shaping possibilities

Waves MetaFilter will be available early 2014 with pricing TBA. Visit www.waves.com for more information.
