Waves' new collection of plug-ins is based on vintage pieces of gear owned by Grammy Award-winning producer/mix engineer Jack Joseph Puig (JJP; pictured). The Jack Joseph Puig Collection is the culmination of Waves' ongoing research and development project that has lasted for more than three years. The new collection debuts following the June introduction of free downloadable Waves presets from Puig.

When Waves decided to model rare studio hardware—the Fairchild 670, Pultec EQP-1A and the Pultec MEQ-5—Puig shared his knowledge and expertise on these devices, and also gave Waves exclusive access to model his most prized processors (which have been acknowledged by leading artists and producers as the finest examples of these units).

The Jack Joseph Puig Collection includes the PuigChild 660 & 670 compressor/limiter, the PuigTec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, and the PuigTec MEQ-5.

Working in Puig’s personal recording space, located in Los Angeles’ legendary Ocean Way Recording Studios, Waves’ R&D team painstakingly analyzed and modeled each processor’s every attribute, replicating its sound and behavior. Puig became an indispensable part of the development process, greatly assisting the Waves team by testing and fine-tuning the software models of his hardware, as well as contributing an extensive library of his personal presets.

“As time goes by, there are fewer and fewer examples of these heirloom processors for artists, engineers or producers to have access to,” Puig says. “Not every studio or engineer has had the luxury that I have had to be in the same creative space as some of these magnificent pieces of equipment. The three vintage processors that Waves and I have modeled are reference standard pieces of what that particular processor is supposed to sound and feel like. Now, through the Waves Puig Collection, users around the world have the beautiful benefit of actually being able to use a piece of equipment that they might never have had the opportunity to work with. In a way, we are helping to preserve a piece of audio history.”

The JJP Collection is currently available separately as well as part of the Waves Mercury bundle. For more information, visit www.waves.com.
