  • Waves vs.Logic Plug ins

    What do you think?

    Is there such a big difference in sound between the built in Logic plug ins and the Waves bundles?

    The price for waves is shocking!!!

    Obviously Waves have their own sound and are not comparable to sequencr plug ins.

    For my own purposes I did a shootout between Waves RenEq, Waves Q10 and Logic Channel Eq and easily preferred Logic's eq - I found it much smoother - it's a very obvious difference. Later I got Oxford EQ and preferred that over the Logic eq though. I still use the Logic Channel Eq a lot because it's very very quick to interact with. I haven't ried any of the SSL or API emulations that supposedly sound very good though I always wish they'd have modern interactive graphic dispays (like Logic eq) where you can change Q, freq and gain all at once, as opposed to mouse around 3 different virtual knobs.

    I still use RenComp, it has a brilliant interface and seems very flexible in terms of sound. However, fromwhat I hear the new Logic 8 compressor  is equally flexible now.
