April 19th, 2017
Version 9.91 across-the-board update of all Waves plugins.
All plugins now have control mapping for Avid S3 and S6 control surfaces.
H-EQ: New H-EQ Lite components that require less CPU and are well suited for live sound or when processing resources are limited. They do not include the Spectrum Analyzer and Analog sections.
H-EQ: New Solo function – Any parametric band can now be soloed by touching its Frequency, Q, or Gain controls. This provides a momentary check of the band’s processing. For a latching solo of a band, click on its solo button.
H-EQ: New Smooth feature which eliminates noises that can occur while controls are moved in certain older H-EQ versions. When a session with instances of older H-EQ versions loads, ‘Smooth’ will automatically set to Off. New instances of H-EQ in new or old sessions will load with Smooth On.
Nx Virtual Mix Room: Support for up to 6 Nx Head Trackers at the same time.
Nx Virtual Mix Room: Nx Head Trackers can be renamed from the WavesHeadTracker application. The name is permanent and saved on the Nx Head Tracker device itself.
Nx Virtual Mix Room: The Head Tracker’s status color is now also shown in the plugin’s tracking device drop down menu.
Waves Central Support for installing version 9.91.
