The Beatles productions have an amazing sonic quality. A lot of it is attributed to the custom gear they used at Abbey Road Studios. Learn about that gear and how to use Waves' authentic Abbey Road plugins in this Beatles-worthy course by Joe Albano.
When Waves collaborates with the folks at Abbey Road Studios to recreate the sound of the gear that helped create The Beatles' sound, well... you've got to pay attention. We did, and that's why we brought in audio expert Joe Albano to explain just how these powerful plugins work.
Joe takes you through the whole Abbey Road Collection one plugin at a time. He explains the history behind each one. He demystifies the hardware that they're modeled after. He explains the nature of each piece of analog circuitry, with all its subtle characteristics, that shape the unique sonics that passes through it. From there, he dives into the Waves versions. He explains how to use them and how the folks at Waves created powerful enhancements to meet the needs of the digital world.
This course, filled with tons of audio examples, gets you up-to-speed on these amazing Waves plugins while teaching you a lot about how to get that coveted Beatles/Abbey Road Studios sound. So think of this as your very own "Ticket To Ride" as trainer Joe Albano brings the powerful sound of the analog past into the digital present and future!
A very informative course! Happy to have found it and it really helped me understand how to use the Abbey Road plugins (some of them at least!).

Abbey Road is for me The Place of Good Sound.
This studio gave us Beatles and Pink Floyd.
The quality and unique sound was, and is, marvellous.
So how did they do it, and can it be done today in our digital world?
Watch and learn.

I have finished about 30 or so courses on here thus far, and have learned something from and enjoyed all of them. But this course was something special. Not only did i learn these plugins inside out, but there was so much amazing history revealed and the whole thing was just such a joy. I can't recommend this course enough. If you want to learn about these amazing plugins, and you also want to learn about the history of Abbey Road studios, the Beatles' recording techniques, tape recording, ADT, etc then you will LOVE this.

I recently got into using Waves Gold plugins, and I would say that they are marvellous. I haven't quite got into the Abbey Road Collection, but after this tutorial, I am really considering it. The tutorial really goes into the inner workings of these plugs and showcases how well they sound. A 5-star tutorial.

This is a good way of heaping to decide what to invest in. Full accurate reviews of any/all software is very helpful. Much appreciated.

Watching a full review of software helps you decide if it is something you require or just have in your DAW
I always take a long time to decide what is best for me.
