Waves are offering the Manny Marroquin Tone Shaper ($99 value) plugin as a free download for all registered users until September 15th, 2020.
Manny Marroquin Tone Shaper is a four-band linear-phase parallel compressor. It uses parallel compression and EQ to bring out the character of the processed audio signal in a musical way, without sounding harsh or artificial. It is intended for use as a “polish” effect for defining the space of individual tracks in a mix that already sounds good.
The plugin was developed by Waves, following the design ideas and guidelines provided by the Grammy-winning mixing engineer Manny Marroquin. It is intended for use as a “polish” effect for defining the space of individual tracks in a mix that already sounds good.
The interface features six sliders that control the level of the direct signal, the four frequency bands, and the widened signal. Located above the sliders are the mute switches for each band. The bottom row is where you’ll find the input and output volume controls, as well as the three-way switches that adjust the focus EQ curve of each frequency band.
