Essential Sounds for All Types of Music Production

  • Luxurious Grand Piano

    Grand Rhapsody captures the Fazioli F228 piano’s sublime tone, balanced touch, superb clarity, and powerful bass. Multi-miked with 8 pairs of world-class mics, and with ten acoustic environments, the sound is breathtaking.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • Your Voice is Now an Instrument

    With both Ovox, your voice can generate chords, harmonize, vocode, synthesize, re-tune, arpeggiate, modulate, trigger MIDI instruments, do sound design, and more. There’s nothing like OVox for vocals.

    CR8 makes sampling easy and fun, with an inviting UI that lets you stretch, loop, sync, layer, freeze, reverse, and modulate your samples quickly and creatively. For an ideal workflow, pair CR8 with the AI-powered COSMOS Sample Finder, so you can search & find any sample on your computer in seconds. CR8 and COSMOS also come with over 2500 royalty-free samples!

  • Vintage Keys of the 60s and 70s

    Take the clav’s twang, an electric grand, and the funk of two iconic electric pianos. Add the effects and amps used with these classics, then multisample for the ideal dynamic response—and end up with the ultimate electric pianos.

  • Electric Bass with Maximum Articulation

    Bass Fingers and Bass Slapper nail the sound of electric bass, with the kind of expressiveness that’s possible only with thousands of unlooped multisamples, amp/cab emulations, keyswitching, and Waves’ sampling expertise.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
  • The Smooth Sound of Analog Synthesis

    There’s a reason the sound of analog synthesis has not only survived, but grown over the past half-century: It sounds wonderful. Element 2.0 uses cutting-edge technology to capture the silky, responsive sound of analog synthesis.

    Features: Multiple Modes Fit Different Material
  • Digital Synthesis, Reinvented

    Flow Motion rejuvenates FM synthesis with easier programming and greater versatility, while Codex transports the wavetable synth from its 80s beginnings into the 21st century. Both bring the sounds of tomorrow to today.

    Features: Precision Modeled Transformers
  • Thousands of Presets

    All of these virtual instruments come with a generous collection of presets, created by top musicians and sound designers. Dive in and start playing, or dive deep and start programming—it’s your choice.
