In 1967, the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, a revolutionary masterpiece that forever changed music, music recording, and music production.

George Martin’s production at Abbey Road Studios, and the sounds the legendary producer was able to create using Abbey Road’s gear, were an essential part of the song’s magic.

60 years later, producer Ricardo Salvador set out to faithfully recreate the album's final track, "A Day in The Life," using the Waves Abbey Road plugins to emulate the song’s precise vocal, drum, piano, bass and guitar sounds.
