The Waves Abbey Road TG Mastering chain models the same mastering chain that’s been used at Abbey Road studios for years, touching everything from Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon right through to Ed Sheeran's records.
There are five modules available in the plug-in interface: Input, Filter, Tone, Limiter and an Output section. The first four of these can be ordered in any combination you like, depending on your needs. Each of these four can also operate independently in traditional stereo mode, dual mono or Mid-Side mode — a feature that will will have those performing mastering duties in the box jumping for joy.
Although the plug-in is billed specifically as the Abbey Road Mastering chain, the option to have "the Abbey Road sound" anywhere in your mix — especially on groups — is quite the draw.
The TG Mastering Chain is on special off right now for a staggeringly affordable $39. You’ll have to get your skates on, though, as Waves haven’t revealed when this special will end and the regular price is $199.
