Among the most influential rock producers of recent decades, Butch Vig has directly shaped the sound of modern rock. From Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins to Foo Fighters and his own band Garbage, Vig has contributed his signature sound to some of the most legendary albums from the grunge era to the present.
The defining element of the “Butch Vig Sound” is undoubtedly Vig’s vocal stamp. The celebrated producer ushered in the sound of distorted vocals in a beautifully musical way, and it is this sound that the Butch Vig Vocals plugin faithfully recreates. With instantly hyped vocals that cut through the mix with an in-your-face attitude, the Waves Signature Series Butch Vig Vocals plugin gives users the opportunity to work with the sound of rock royalty.
The Waves Signature Series Butch Vig Vocals plugin delivers straightforward vocal processing with pleasant distortion and lots of air frequencies, adding an uncompromising quality to any vocal track.
The Waves H-Reverb plugin is a pioneering reverb based on innovative algorithmic FIR (Finite Impulse Response) reverberation technology. H-Reverb provides richer, deeper reverb tails that sit beautifully in the mix while breathing crisp air into your tracks. By fusing classic reverb sounds with forward-thinking features that break new ground in digital reverb processing, H-Reverb provides uncompromising sound quality and creative control.
H-Reverb incorporates Waves’ advanced analog modeling along with a drive control, offering signal behavior that until now was found exclusively in high-end hardware reverb devices. This unique design also enables input drive, a technique favored by many top engineers. The FIR engine also lets you shape and customize the reverb decay envelope in ways beyond the linear standard, resulting in perfectly gated, real reverse, and very long and dense reverb tails.
To top it off, H-Reverb includes an impressive library of artist presets from the industry’s leading mixing engineers. Their personal settings may be the perfect space you’re looking for, or simply the perfect point to start from. Their inclusion marks a new standard in the quest for reverb perfection.
Additional features include:
Impulse-variable resonant filtering for creating unfamiliar and advanced reverb effects
EQ and dynamics module for compression, ducking and de-essing
ADA analog modeling and drive control for input clipping
Full buildup timing and shaping
Pre-delay BPM sync
Artist presets from the industry’s leading mixing engineers
Support for full 5.1-channel surround setups
