Anyone know if these newly announced plugins will be included with Mercury? I would think so, but I don't want to assume ...

The delay looks pretty cool. And, the Triple D sounds interesting. Actually everything with a D could be interesting (distortion, too).

No AAX DSP Period. This Digi thing is not even new just a computer without a screen. Very disappointed in this crap.

Smoke and mirrors.

Waves and their signature series.......mmmmm.........am I the only one who finds all this a bit gimmicky? IMHO, the previous incarnations sounded ok to good, but not brilliant.

Agreed. Signature series stuff is marketed to novices who don't know how to sculp their own sounds. Sure there might be some times when one of these is useful but it's a gimmick IMO.

The whole point of the sig series stuff IMO is I am guessing, about exploration. I have not been the least interested in them, as everything is available and more controllable in the individual processors within the WAVES bundles themselves.
I have nothing bad to say about WAVES. They've been great for me, as has the support on the few occasions I've needed it over the past ... is it really nearly 20 years?!!!
I can still pull up sessions on many of my chosen DAWs from the past and the new versions still pull the settings from the past. This can't be said for many of the newer companies and their plugs.
NI have only just got that sorted with Kontakt 5!

the signature series aren't used here for mix ..but when i produce on the fly for an artist and record him , as you knwo he want's to go out with his stuff and , bam signature CLA on vocals to make them sit quik ...puigchild on buss +LA2A for choruses ...and voila , print and give ...


Those are damn good for those kinda of purpose ...or just put one during tracking on the vocal bus , when you do overdubs and each previous take is then sitting well ...

i never went deep into the FX ones but from what i heard on the first contact , it's quite really good ....

Not for everybody , but for sure i could mix with only those ...if i had no choice

People brush off these signature series as "beginner toys" but I will say that CLA Guitars is used by many professional engineers in my circle including myself. They did an excellent job on that one. Can't say that about many of the others in the Signature Series.

I feel no shame in saying that most of the signature bundles are really useful!

You're right, sometimes it's just what you need. Stick it on a track & dial in a sound quickly.

Nailed it on the head there!!! I can't tell you how many times I throw on the sauce with the Maserati or CLA stuff after a day of tracking when a new client starts to act nervous and says things like, will it sound more together later? Then I do a quick dirty with these bundles and all is well be cause they start to see what things could be at the end. However, when I get to the real mix I use them soaringly and opt fir what they di usual needs, but as you says in your list they are very helpful in certain situations

No man, actually I don't want more - I want better quality.
For me, Waves is just settling on mediocrity - that new synth for instance: If you set out to create a new virtual analog synth it better be good. Like 4 oscillator + sub osc, creative effects, really good filters etc.

But that "Element"? Or REDD? Hmm, not convinced.

It seems to me they rather release something new every few months than to come up with something really good (like the CLA comps or the PuigChild 660 was).
I would also love if they updated existing bundles. E.g. the SSL collection could be augmented by an SSL 9000 channel strip. The V-Series could use a 33609 emulation etc.

Stop discounting everything like crazy and releasing stuff we already have.

Sorry to vent.

Yeah... gonna have to disagree with you. These folks work pretty hard and make - arguably - the best Native plugins out there. They just released REDD, remember? (That's a helluva set of plugins.)

People who bash Waves for not doing exactly what they want - when they want it - never cease to amaze me.

anyways, are there any videos/audio or at least photo/specs on MM series? especially the triple D?

Not going to complain at all and will check these out but still desperately hope the next release (and included in Mercury!!!) will be an algorithmic reverb on par with the current flock of great reverbs available.
Pretty sure I'm not alone in this either
