Waves Introduces StudioVerse, a Groundbreaking AI-Powered System for Plugin Chains

by | Audio, Gear, Production

Waves Audio, the world’s leading developer of professional audio signal processing technologies and plugins, launches StudioVerse, a groundbreaking AI-powered system that will help producers and audio creators unlock the full power of all Waves plugins, bringing to their DAW the power of an entire musical community. Waves also introduces its new subscription service, Waves Creative Access, which includes the entire Waves plugin catalog and is now the exclusive way to get Waves plugins.

With Waves Creative Access, all Waves plugins are finally at the fingertips of all producers, musicians, engineers, and audio creators. Finally, all Waves plugins—the world’s largest, most diverse catalog of industry-leading audio creation tools—are available to everyone, in one easy, affordable subscription service. (Current owners of Waves plugins will continue to own the existing versions of their plugins.)

Waves Creative Access subscriptions include all future updates for the included plugins, as well as new plugins added regularly. No hassle, no extra cost— finally, everyone can produce and mix with the latest versions of all Waves plugins, always, with complete freedom.

Waves Creative Access offers two subscription levels, each available as a monthly or annual subscription:
– The larger option, Waves Ultimate includes all Waves plugins (over 220 and growing), at only $24.99 a month or $249.99 a year.
– For those seeking a more modest but still vast collection of plugins, the second option, Waves Essential, includes over 110 pro-quality plugins covering essential mixing and vocal production needs, at $14.99 a month or $149.99 a year.

Together with the release of Waves Creative Access, Waves also releases StudioVerse, a groundbreaking AI-powered community for plugin chains that opens from within the Waves StudioRack plugin chainer. StudioVerse helps users unlock the full power of all Waves plugins: it is suitable for producers, musicians, and audio creators at all skill levels, from beginner to advanced. For those who are not expert mix engineers, StudioVerse is designed to break the knowledge barrier in mixing, and make great-sounding results accessible to everyone.

StudioVerse is a vast online network of plugin chains, available directly in your DAW. It includes thousands of presets for entire plugin chains, with easy Musical AI search. Each chain is like a shortcut to a professionally produced or mixed track. The chains are created by industry-leading GRAMMY®-winning producers and mixers, such as Young Guru, Chris Lord-Alge, Manny Marroquin, and many more—plus hundreds of other top pros and expert creators. StudioVerse is also an open platform, where anyone—you, too—can upload and share chains at any time, so the vast number of mixing chains available in StudioVerse is ever-growing.

The most groundbreaking aspect of StudioVerse is its Musical AI search engine, which recommends the best chains for your specific tracks. All you need to do is click the “Scan” button: StudioVerse’s musical machine learning engine will learn your track’s “Audio ID” and instantly recommend mixing chains matching your unique sonic fingerprint. In addition, you can search StudioVerse chains by free text search and using tags, classified by instrument, genre, or various sonic characteristics.

“Since we started Waves,” says Mick Olesh, Waves Managing Director, “our goal has always been to give allmusic and audio creators easy, affordable access to the largest catalog of pro-quality plugins. Now, with Waves Creative Access and StudioVerse, you have everything you need in order to inspire your creativity—instantly, always at your fingertips, so you can create with total freedom.”

Waves Creative Access subscriptions are for plugins only. Waves application such as eMotion LV1SuperRackSoundGrid Rack for Venue and Dugan Speech are still sold individually.To learn more about Waves Creative Access subscriptions, click here.
