Waves Audio have announced that they are now shipping the Waves F6 Floating-Band Dynamic EQ Plugin. The Waves F6 is a surgical dynamic equaliser with six floating, fully-adjustable parametric filter bands, advanced EQ and compression/expansion controls per band, mid-side processing options and more.
The Waves F6 Dynamic EQ is very much designed as a problem-solving EQ. It can be used for various equalisation, compression, expansion and de-essing processes, which can be employed during mixing or mastering, in the studio or live.
With the F6, your dynamic EQ can be more versatile and precise, with filters that can be as narrow or as wide as you like, free-floating bands that can overlap, and variable EQ shapes (High and low pass filters; bell and notch) that give you the flexibility to deal with very specific problems. The F6 is ideal for isolating those problems on individual tracks and fixing them transparently whenever they pop out. In addition, the plug-in offers advanced mid-side processing capabilities that are designed to afford users a greater ability to carve out EQ space in a busy mix, breathing more life into mixes.
According to Waves, each band also features a solo/sidechain monitor, and the whole plug-in is touch-compatible. Add to that zero-latency operation and low CPU consumption, and this plug-in looks rather attractive, especially given that it is currently priced at only $29.
