Discover What Your Vocals Can Really Do

  • Perform with Creative Vocal Tuning in Real Time

    Wave Tune Real-Time frees you from having to apply vocal tuning on playback. Thanks to breakthrough low-latency technology, now you can hear the results of pitch correction as you sing, in real times—and tailor the performance to the effect.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • Create Lush Harmonies and Background Vocals

    Waves Harmony is a real-time vocal harmony playground: Auto-generate creative harmony lines from a solo vocal—or craft wild 8-part harmonies with detailed control over the precise textures, pitch and character of each voice.

  • Everybody’s Favorite Vocal Compressor

    Drake’s producer Noah “40” Shebib says “R-Vox is one of the most important vocal plugins ever made.” Beyonce’s engineer Stu White says it’s on every vocal she records: “When it’s off, she asks ‘What’s missing?’” They’re right. R-Vox’s acclaimed compression puts vocals upfront, instantly—without squashing them.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • Mix Perfect Vocal Levels—Automatically

    Vocal Rider is the world’s only plugin that adjusts fluctuating vocal levels automatically, to help the vocal sit perfectly in the mix. No need for over-compression that crushes the vocal, or for time-consuming manual drawing of automation levels. Set a target level for your vocal—Vocal Rider will take care of the rest.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
  • Bend Vocal Pitch and Formant in Real Time

    Manipulate your vocals in real time for the most popular sounds in hip hop, pop, R&B and electronic genres. Transform any vocal into Travis Scott-style deep-voiced ad-libs, Billie Eilish-type other-worldly vocal doubles, Frank Ocean-style pitch-shifted lead vocals, or the high-pitched vocal topline in every EDM drop.

    Features: Multiple Modes Fit Different Material
  • Turn Your Voice into an Instrument

    The OVox vocal synthesizer takes your vocal apart, and puts it back together again—as a talk box, vocoder, bass, and more. Arpeggiate your voice, trigger harmonies, apply up to 6 effects, modulate with LFOs and envelopes, control with MIDI—stretch your vocal to infinity.

    Features: Precision Modeled Transformers
  • Tune Vocals Surgically

    It’s heartbreaking to record a great vocal, only to have it marred by some out-of-tune notes. But don’t start over: use Waves Tune to save that once-in-a-lifetime performance. Fix errant notes—naturally and transparently, with surgical control.

    Features: Multiple Modes Fit Different Material
  • Minimize Vocal Glitches and Tame Harsh Vocals

    Tame “ess” sounds with the AI-driven Sibilance plugin. Or choose from Waves’ other de-essers—DeEsser, Renaissance DeEsser—to pick the sound and workflow you prefer. For consistent vocals, reduce level variations with Vocal Rider. Then, remove as much or as little breath noise as you want with DeBreath. Yes, you really can fix it in the mix.
