Waves Audio has released the Waves Abbey Road Chambers plug-in, replicating the echo chamber used by Abbey Road’s pop engineers, to create reverbs, delays and spatial effects.

Waves Abbey Road Chambers plug-inDeveloped in collaboration with Abbey Road Studios, Waves’ Abbey Road Chambers is a simulation of the Studio Two echo chamber, complete with the original valve Neumann KM53 microphones and Altec 605 speaker, as used at Abbey Road throughout the 1960s. Also featured is a recreation of Abbey Road Studios’ original Steed (Send. Tape. Echo. Echo. Delay) set-up – a system designed to extend the chamber’s natural palette into new territories, by splitting the signal and creating a feedback loop from the studio’s EMI Redd desk, through a dedicated tape delay, via the RS106 and RS127 filters and then to the chamber and back.

Abbey Road Chambers also has an additional set of the original filters going into the chamber – EMI’s RS106 hi/low pass filter and the EMI RS127 Presence EQ – to further sculpt the perfect chamber sound. The plug-in also includes Abbey Road’s famed Mirror Room, and the Stone Room at Olympic Studios, London.

The Abbey Road Chambers plug-in is designed in a modular fashion – send tracks just to the chamber, isolate just the Steed effect, or combine both for the full range of sonic possibilities offered by the original Abbey Road set-up.
