On Wave Arts plug-ins:
We recently caught up with Joe and asked about his experience with Wave Arts’ Master Restoration plug-ins:
“I was in the middle of a mix and the buzz on this particular guitar track finally got to me. After way too much time deleting gaps between notes, crossfading, and doing volume rides, the buzz was still there imbedded in the sound. I got a demo of the Wave Arts Restoration Suite and applied some of their magic and have to say it was truly amazing. Not only did the plugins get rid of unwanted buzzes and clicks, they were super easy to use. A must have tool for all mixers.”
