Waves Live Tools Chosen by Tom Wiggans, FOH for The Cranberries

— Wiggans looks to Waves plugins for live problem-solving —

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, June 26, 2013 — Waves Audio’s popularity is growing among live sound engineers. One front-of-house engineer who has recently adopted Waves’ SoundGrid® live platform is Tom Wiggans (UB40, Squeeze, Wet Wet Wet, and Roni Size & Reprazent), who is currently using SoundGrid and Waves plugins on tour with Irish alt-rock mainstays The Cranberries.

He notes, “I ended up using SoundGrid especially for problem solving. The most impressive thing for me is the Waves C4, since it is the first multiband compressor that I have used that I can actually hear working when making the subtlest of changes. I use it on the main vocal, backing vocals and bass. I also use the GTR3 guitar amps and stomp pedals on the DI outputs.”

He continues, “I like to work at getting the source as correct as possible and apply effects/dynamics as a last resort, but in cases where this isn’t possible Waves plugins add a substantial amount of warmth. I use MaxxBass on the bass guitar to remove the room resonance frequencies from the source and then reinforce them with the harmonics. It worked quite well in getting rid of that ‘one-note’ bass sound. Also, H-Comp sounds great as a parallel bus compressor on the drums and it really adds weight to the snare.”

Wiggans is part of a growing trend of live sound professionals who are making the move to the next generation workflow with Waves plugins and WavesLive SoundGrid. Visit www.waves.com and www.waveslive.com for more information.
