Waves Now Shipping the Kaleidoscopes Plugin




Waves Audio is now shipping the Kaleidoscopes plugin.

Waves Kaleidoscopes is a super-suite of inspiring Phaser, Flanger, Chorus and Tremolo sounds, crafted from the best analog modulation studio classics. The plugin’s unique Dual Cascade engines enable users to combine or “cascade” any two effects for magical textures. The plugin also features intelligent triggers that respond dynamically to their playing in real time.

Waves has handpicked all-time-favorite analog effects from legendary eras – ‘60s phasing and tape flanging, ‘70s stadium tremolo-guitar vibes, ‘80s chorus – instilling the truest analog tones into Kaleidoscopes’ DNA.

Furthermore, Kaleidoscopes’ Dual Cascade architecture gives users two FX engines, which users can “cascade” serially into one another for unique effects or, alternatively, run in parallel for super-wide soundscapes.

On each of the two engines, users can choose a selection of waveshapes or any sidechain signal from their DAW session to be the modulation input. They can even select their performance as the input, allowing their live playing to control the sound in real time and drive the pulsing of the effect.

Users can control the Speed, Resonance, Width and Depth of the modulation, plus filter settings and mix knobs for extreme versatility. They can also choose from five different effect “characters” for different analog flavors, and tempo-sync the modulation effect to their DAW session to keep things consistent every time they re-open their song.

Since Waves built this plugin for musicians, producers and engineers, there is an added THRU mode for that much-loved stompbox sound, with the dry signal on one channel and the wet signal on the other.

With its innovative Trigger section, Waves’ Kaleidoscopes plugin becomes an extension of users playing. By setting input-sensitive envelopes and adjusting intelligent triggers, users enable the two effects to “listen” to their playing and respond dynamically, expressing nuances of emotion and feel. With this section activated, Kaleidoscopes becomes a personalized musical instrument, modifying its character in real time based on how intensely or lightly, fast or slow users sing or play.

Kaleidoscopes is included in Waves’ Mercury, Pro Show and SD7 Pro Show bundles.
