Wave Arts claim that Tube Saturator… is the world’s most accurate real-time tube-amp plug-in.” Let’s examine how they can make this outrageous claim—and why I agree… it sounds spectacular, and this is the only way you’re going to get this sound.

Joseph Lemmer, Tape Op

By far the most complex and deeply programmable plug-in of the bunch… if I had to choose a best value, I’d pick TrackPlug 5 because it combines a reasonable price with incredible flexibility and out-of-the-box usability. (Channel Strip Shootout)

Markkus Rovito, Electronic Musician

I’ve made my decision: Power Suite has joined my plug-in A-list.

Craig Anderton, EQ Magazine

9 out of 10 score: Overall, [Master Restoration Suite] is incredibly good fun to use, and the results speak for themselves.

Computer Music

Power Suite 5 offers an impressive set of mixing tools covering a wide range of potential applications.

Music Tech

A truly awesome and well-priced collection of plug-ins for mixing and mastering.

Future Music

Most importantly, though, despite a real attention to detail in respect to audio quality, all of the plug-ins have surprisingly low processor loads, even when applying multiple bands of EQ or long reverb settings.

Music Tech

Consider purchasing the Power Suite for its pro-quality audio processing, its low CPU drain, its one-stop solution flexibility, and its reasonable price.

The latest incarnation of Wave Arts’ [Power Suite] is a treat for the eyes and ears.

Martin Walker, Sound on Sound

FinalPlug is one of the best mastering plugins I have ever used. Talk about simple – select the type of mastering session you are working on (CD, DVD, etc.), and just press ‘enter’. Boom! Your music sounds like the ‘big boys’! If you need further fine tuning, it’s there and as easy as it gets. Bravo to Wave Arts for taking the ‘master’ out of mastering and putting the ‘user’ back in!

Ted Perman, producer/arranger/composer

MasterVerb has its own fresh and silky sound.I particularly like the fact that it’s non-convolution and is not trying to emulate another reverb. The interface is every bit as quick and fun to use as the TrackPlug. I know what I want from a reverb and this ‘blank canvas’ approach suits me well. I can dial in the parameters I need, confident of an accurate linear response and like all Wave Arts plugs it takes but a few seconds, leaving me more time to concentrate on being a musician and less on engineering.

Doug Boyle, guitarist (Robert Plant, Caravan)

I am using Finalplug for punchy mixes and to refresh tracks which are sat too far back. I like details and FinalPlug emphasises these without sounding cluttered.

Doug Boyle, guitarist (Robert Plant, Caravan)

I am increasingly reaching for Trackplug for quick,intuitive shaping. It’s especially useful for tracks that just won’t sit right in a mix.The EQ has all the flexibility I need and with the brick wall filtering it’s easy to find a discrete place in a mix for parts even on a very full track.In fact,the more track plugs I open ,the more I can guarantee trouble free,easy mixing. It just sounds musical without being intrusive.

Doug Boyle, guitarist (Robert Plant, Caravan)

I would feel bereft without these plugs. I’m fussy about quality and the Power Suite delivers to my ears.

Doug Boyle, guitarist (Robert Plant, Caravan)

Panorama has been a revelation. So far I’ve found it useful to
place parts in a space to lift them out of a busy track.It has
potential in sound design way beyond this though and I am only just
beginning to scratch the surface of this plug.

Doug Boyle, guitarist (Robert Plant, Caravan)

MasterVerb’s sound is bright and sparkly – as all good digital reverbs should be – with little sign of ringyness in its longer settings.

Music Tech

MasterVerb 5 enables you to create some marvellously authentic 80s drum sounds courtesy of its envelope feature and the long-forgotten art of gated reverb.

Music Tech

It’s great to come across a ‘traditional’ reverb plug-in that not only performs beautifully but that you can get fully up to speed with in about two minutes.

Future Music

Compared to some other multi-band compressors we’ve used, MultiDynamics 5 feels incredibly easy to set up, with a clear and informative interface, mute and solo options for the six possible bands, plus a useful set of All Bands controls to modify any one of the parameters across all six bands at once.

Music Tech

The most immediately notable thing about MultiDynamics 5 is the level of control and visual feedback it offers, but like TrackPlug, it also sounds fantastic, across the board. Complete mixes, drum kit submixes, vocal groups, guitars… you name it, MD5 can improve it
