WAVES Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain

Waves Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain Plug-in is carefully modeled on the legendary Abbey Road EMI TG12410 Transfer Console used in all Abbey Road’s mastering suites since the early 1970s (and still in use today). As did the original transistor-based console, the TG Mastering Chain plug-in consists of modules — or “cassettes,” as EMI called them: the TG12411 Input Module, TG12412 Tone Module (EQ), TG12413 Compressor/Limiter Module, TG12414 Filter Module, and the TG12416 V.A.L (Spread) Module (stereo component only), incorporated into the Output Module.

Abbey Road’s Complete Mastering Chain
In Your Hands

From the 70s to today, from Pink Floyd to Ed Sheeran, the EMI TG12410 Transfer Console has defined the Abbey Road Studios sound. At long last, Waves has modeled this magical mastering chain down to the very last detail, and added modern touches designed with Abbey Road Studios.

With modular Input, Tone, Compression/Limiting, Filter/EQ, and Output/Stereo Spread sections—now you can give Abbey Road’s distinctive sonic flavoring and control to your masters, buses, groups, and even individual tracks.

If You Were Forced to Have
Only One Plugin for Mastering…

Magical Mystery Mastering

From Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon to Radiohead’s OK Computer and beyond—you know it when you hear it: gear with that special “something” that has proven itself over decades in the hands of top engineers, recording the world’s best-selling musicians. There’s nothing like the TG desk.


Timeless Tone

4 bands of EQ each have 5 carefully curated frequencies, chosen for maximum musical impact and usefulness. For each band, choose low shelf, high shelf, or three bell shapes: wide, medium, or narrow.


Limiting without Limits

In addition to the original, Zener diode-based compressor and limiter functions, TG Mastering Chain also includes a modern, VCA-style compressor, designed jointly by Waves and Abbey Road in the spirit of the TG.


First-Class Filters

The Filter module supplements the Tone module with 3 gentle, tone-shaping filters: High Pass (4 frequencies), Low Pass (5 frequencies), and Presence (8 frequencies, with medium bell).


Extensive Input Options

At the input, change balance, swap channels, apply historic tape EQs, flip phase, or change one channel’s phase relative to the other by 90 degrees—a simple, quick fix for stereo tracks with phase correlation issues.


Re-Order Your Chain: Complete Control

Re-order all modules, except input and output. EQ Filters before or after the Compressor/Limiter, Tone before or after EQ—you choose. Collapse a module to see fewer controls and link them, or expand to adjust Left and Right (or Mid and Sides) separately. Re-linking maintains any control offsets.


Keep Everything in Phase: Added Linear Phase Sidechains

Another modern feature enhances the original compressor/limiter with 3 bands of linear-phase sidechain filters. Linear-phase operation preserves the TG’s natural sound, and the dynamics’ attack/release characteristics.


The Final Touch:
Optimum Output

Widen (or narrow) your masters’ stereo image with the stereo spread enhancer, precision-modeled on the spreader from Abbey Road’s original EMI TG12416 unit. Plus monitor… well, pretty much anything: left, right, stereo, summed to mono, mid, and sides.


Meter Your Masters with
the TG Meter Bridge

The bonus TG Meter Bridge (a separate plugin) offers a new approach to metering. Open one Meter Bridge component on any channel and get access (via drop-down) to all Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain instances in the session. Get a clear reading of VU, PPM, Phase and Peak at a glance, and stay focused on the music.


170 Presets by Grammy-Winning Engineers

Launch your process with excellent starting points: 170 presets by top mixing and mastering engineers like Jacquire King, Joe Barresi, Piper Payne, Dave Pensado, Greg Wells, Lu Diaz, Drew Lavyne, and many more.
