Waves’ Abbey Road Chambers
Posted on: Tuesday 31st of July 2018
Developed together with Abbey Road Studios, Waves’ Abbey Road Chambers puts you at the controls of the Studio Two echo chamber, complete with the original valve Neumann KM53 microphones and Altec 605 speaker, as used on almost every pop recording done at Abbey Road during the ‘60s. Also featured is a recreation of Abbey Road Studios’ original tape echo setup – a system designed to extend the chamber’s natural sonic palette into new territories, by splitting the signal and creating a feedback loop from the studio’s REDD desk, through a dedicated tape delay, via the RS106 and RS127 filters and then to the chamber and back.
Abbey Road Chambers also gives you an additional set of the original filters going into the chamber – EMI’s RS106 hi/low pass filter and the EMI RS127 Presence EQ – to further sculpt the perfect chamber sound. Furthermore, as a bonus, the plugin also includes two additional legendary acoustic spaces: Abbey Road’s famed “Mirror Room,” and the “Stone Room” from Olympic Studios, London. We’re reviewing this now, but we can tell readers in advance – it’s great! An absolute bargain at Waves introductory discounted price of $29 (regular, $199)
