Waves surprises us again with a new free giveaway – this time is Manny Marroquin Tone Shaper, a parallel compressor plugin usually sold for $29.
As mentioned above, this is not the first time when Waves makes some of its plugins available for free; and it will not be the last for sure, so make sure you periodically check our news page.
This plugin is supervised by Manny Marroquin, a well-known mixing engineer with eight Grammy awards. Here’s what he says about MM Tone Shaper: “Parallel compression plays a huge part in my mixing technique. It adds richness and really brings out the full character of almost any sound and helps different elements stand out within a mix.
Tone Shaper is a parallel compressor with four separate bands plus EQ and a few other ‘secret ingredients’ that make it quick and easy to change the tonality of a track to match your mix. I’ve found that when a mix is like 80% there, instead of EQ or volume, adding the Tone Shaper makes things jump out, without sacrificing space in the mix”.
Manny Marroquin Tone Shaper is available for free at Waves until September 15th. The supported platforms are Windows (VST/VST3/AAX) and macOS (VST/VST3/AAX/AU).
