Waves' Transform Bundle—a collection of new sound-transformation tools—offers four plug-ins: Sound Shifter, Doubler, TransX and Morphoder, supporting sample rates up to 96 kHz.

Sound Shifter (pictured) allows shaping of time and pitch with the ability to pitch-shift over an octave with a time ratio of 50% to 200%, allows users to fit music to any duration while maintaining fidelity, punch, groove and transients without smearing. A preset library provides presets for common time- and pitch-related applications.

The Doubler adds dimensions and fattens up tracks with double-tracking, exciter-style and harmonization-type effects. Two- or four-voice doubling is provided with 100-cent detune range, plus one octave downshift, and up to 200 cents of pitch modulation, providing a large range of effects with maximum control, including independent gain, pan, delay, feedback, detune and modulation settings for each voice.

TransX shapes attacks and transients, and controls and shapes dynamics for punch without artifacts. TransX includes wideband and multiband transient-contour shaping, automatic transient detection, and control over transient sensitivity, balance, release and threshold.

Morphoder expands upon the concept of a vocoder, but adds features such as formant shifting and compressor-enhanced filter-release dynamics and many others.

The Transform Bundle supports native and TDM systems via TDM, RTAS and AudioSuite for both Windows (including XP) and Mac (including OS X) systems. The Bundle is now available and is priced at $1,200 (native) and $2,400 (TDM).
