Waves Audio is now shipping Gems, which they describe as a growing collection of creative effects, each designed with a unique sonic signature, available in Waves Creative Access subscriptions. This is what they have to say about it...
Waves' Gems can transform any track into pure audio magic. Each Gem is designed with a unique sonic signature, giving you a fresh set of exciting textures and instant creativity boosters.
With Gems, getting amazing results is easy, since each Gem includes a few simple intuitive controls that let you shape vocals, create motion in instruments, add character to drums, and much more, achieving your creative vision quickly without missing a beat.
Each individual Gem seamlessly opens from within the Waves Gems plugin, for a speedy workflow that keeps you in the zone. Embracing a macro-like workflow, Gems allows you to work intuitively and creatively, without thinking about parameters. Just tweak to your liking, trusting your ears and inspiration.
