Waves Content Creator Audio Toolkit bundle

Posted on: Sunday 10th of May 2020

The Waves Content Creator Audio Toolkit is a new bundle for podcasters, YouTubers and creators of live-streamed content. The bundle includes four easy-to-use plugins for content creators, including the new Waves Playlist Rider plug-in. 

Audio quality is known to be one of the main reasons viewers and listeners engage with – or abandon – videos, podcasts and live streams. With the Waves Content Creator Audio Toolkit bundle, you can quickly bring superior sound quality to your content, with tools that are incredibly intuitive even for content creators who are not audio professionals.  The Waves Content Creator Audio Toolkit includes four easy-to-use plug-ins that tackle the most common challenges facing content creators today:

NS1 Automatic Noise Suppressor for removing distracting background noise.

Greg Wells VoiceCentric, an intuitive, hugely effective tool that combines EQ, compression and de-essing into one smart control, to dramatically improve the quality of voice recordings.

Playlist Rider for automatically smoothing out the levels of multiple audio sources (host, guest, music, etc.) in the same podcast, live stream or video.

WLM Plus Loudness Meter to deliver the right loudness levels for YouTube, Spotify, Apple Podcasts and other major platforms. 

The plug-ins in the Waves Content Creator Audio Toolkit include presets for all major content platforms, including Spotify, YouTube, Apple Podcasts and Apple Music, and are compatible with major DAWs plus video and audio editing software.  

Also included in the Toolkit is the new Waves Playlist Rider plug-in, a set-and-forget volume management plugin that helps content creators balance the volume of multiple sources (host, guest, music playlist, audio clips), automatically and in real time. Achieve natural and consistent levels throughout a show. As a podcaster, live streamer or video creator, you often feature multiple audio sources in your content. Oftentimes, you cannot predict the levels of these sources, so you either need to ride the channel faders manually or write tedious volume automation slopes in post-production to ensure levels stay consistent throughout.  

Playlist Rider does all this work for you. It automatically adjusts the volume of multiple sources to a selected volume target – as if a mixing engineer were riding the faders for you. Unlike limiters, which crush your audio’s dynamic range, Playlist Rider preserves the natural dynamics of your sources by simply adjusting their volume in real time. To achieve super-smooth results, Playlist Rider can ignore low-volume parts, like background noise or music fade-ins and fade-outs, using a dedicated input detector threshold. It can also normalize your audio sources to pink tonal curves, to smooth out tonal differences between sources and further improve your program’s consistency. 

Playlist Rider is also ideal for live sound engineers and pro-audio tech personnel who want to automatically balance program sources (DJ background music, YouTube, Smartphone, VTR, etc.), before or after live shows and during corporate events. The Playlist Rider plugin runs in most major audio and video editing software, as well as in Waves’ eMotion LV1 Live Mixer and SuperRack plugin host – making it a must-have tool for podcasters, live streamers, video creators and live engineers who are not willing to accept less than perfectly smooth audio quality.
