We are delighted to announce the release of the Abbey Road REDD consoles plugins, created in conjunction with Waves Audio.
During the 1960s, Abbey Road Studios were at the epicentre of a seismic shift that rocked the world of music and changed the course of popular culture forever. The Beatles, The Hollies, Pink Floyd and countless other luminaries made musical history at the studios, trailblazing a revolution that resonates to this day.
At the heart of it all were the REDD consoles, custom-designed, built by and named after Abbey Road Studios' in-house Record Engineering Development Department. Renowned for their silky smooth EQ curves, extraordinary warmth and lush stereo imagery, there’s something magical about the REDDs that sound like no other consoles.
Waves meticulously recreated the colour, character and tonal complexity of the original desks: the REDD.17, which still belongs to Abbey Road Studios, and the REDD.37 console now owned by Lenny Kravitz. The result is an impressive pair of plugins that deliver the dimension, depth and richness of these console classics.
The Abbey Road REDD consoles plugins are out now – click here to purchase from Waves' website.
