The Timeless Quality of Tubes and Transformers

  • The Holy Grail of Tube Compressors

    The Fairchild 660 and 670 compressors are incredibly rare—just finding one is almost impossible. Waves was especially fortunate to model these expertly maintained and calibrated units from JJP’s personal collection.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • Natural Tube Dynamics

    Whether used as a compressor or limiter, the 660/670’s fast attack, natural release, and lack of the “thumps” that often plague compressor attacks make these units ideal for all instruments, voice, and as master bus “glue.”

  • Sleek, Honeyed Passive EQ Tone

    With their gentle, yet effective, tone-shaping talents, the EQP-1A (high and low frequencies) and MEQ-5 (midrange frequencies) set a standard for passive EQs that has endured for over half a century.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • The EQP-1A’s Secret Sound

    Even though boost and attenuation are centered on the same frequency, applying them simultaneously creates a unique resonant shelf—not cancellation. Many hits have used this quirk to great effect.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
  • Midrange Mastery

    Savor the MEQ-5’s smooth midrange tonality for voice, acoustic guitar, piano, and more—not just mastering—with low-mid boost at 5 frequencies, mid dip at 11 frequencies, and high-mid boost at 5 frequencies.

    Features: Multiple Modes Fit Different Material
  • Rigorous Attention to Detail

    These models embody the richness and texture of the originals—the warmth of transformers, the sweetness of harmonic distortion, and even an optional hint of hum for period-accurate authenticity.

    Features: Precision Modeled Transformers
