WAVES Q10 ENTERS TECnology HALL OF FAME

— Waves’ accolades continue as its groundbreaking product is acknowledged for its lasting legacy —

KNOXVILLE, TN, January 18, 2011 — Waves Audio is pleased to announce that its Q10 Paragraphic Equalizer was selected as an inductee into the TECnology Hall of Fame. The award was presented Saturday, January 15, 2011, at the Winter NAMM convention in Anaheim, California. The announcement comes on the heels of Waves, a leading provider of digital signal processing solutions, being informed that it will be presented with a prestigious Technical GRAMMY® Award during the GRAMMY Week celebration in February 2011.

The TEC Foundation for Excellence in Audio established the TECnology Hall of Fame in 2004 to honor and recognize audio products and innovations that have made a significant contribution to the advancement of audio technology. Inductees to the TECnology Hall of Fame are chosen by a panel of more than 50 recognized audio experts, including authors, educators, engineers, facility owners and other professionals. Products or innovations must be at least 10 years old to be considered for induction.

Waves began in the early ’90s with the introduction of the first audio plugin, the Q10 Paragraphic Equalizer. The Q10 broke new ground in three major areas. First, it was the debut of the audio signal processor plugin, a tool that is ubiquitous today. Second, its graphic user interface gave users unprecedented control and eliminated the requirement for a DSP engineering background since it automated the filter coefficient calculations. Finally, the revolutionary Q10 offered sound quality equal to or better than many of its hardware counterparts.

The Q10 set the stage for what would eventually become the Waves line of over 100 audio plugins, used in every aspect of audio: Recording, Mixing, Mastering, Post Production, Live Sound and Broadcast.

Many leading end users took the opportunity to remark on the Q10: Jack Joseph Puig (John Mayer, The Rolling Stones) stated, “The Q10 changed how I create my mixes.? Ken “Pooch? Van Druten (Linkin Park, Slash) noted, “Almost 20 years later, the Q10 is STILL relevant, STILL one of the best, STILL a plug I use every day. When was the last time you could say that about any other plugin?? John Cooper (Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr) added, “I use the Q10 as a default EQ for my master outputs to touchup on the fly. I actually have it built into my default templates for D-Show and in my MultiRack setups.?

Waves has been acknowledged by the TEC Awards several times previously: for its Platinum bundle in 2003, the IR-1 Parametric Convolution Reverb in 2004, the L3 Multimaximizer in 2005, the SSL 4000 Collection in 2006 and the API Collection in 2008.
