The Waves Ltd. Maserati Collection is a bundle of high quality audio plug-ins designed in tandem by famed producer Tony Maserati. Waves would like you to believe that having this bundle equals having the Maserati sound, which of course simply isn’t the case. However, this is a very powerful bunch of plug-ins nonetheless. It consists of six plug-ins in total (with a seventh just added). Included are the GTi Guitar Toner, VX1 Vocal Enhancer, DRM Drum Slammer, B72 Bass Phattener, ACG Acoustic Guitar Designer, and HMX Harmonics Generator. They also just recently added a Group Processor plug-in to the bundle. You’ll install the bundle all at once along with, which is a simple step by step process that shouldn’t give anyone any problems. I’d also say it’s fairly easy to learn how to use the plug-in, with user friendliness varying a little bit from plug-in to plug-in. If you think you might need it, have the manual on had as it can most likely answer any questions you might have specifically related to the parameters given.



SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I’ve got the Waves Ltd. Maserati Collection on my home system, and the studio I work at has it on theirs as well. I mostly use it at home since that’s where I do most of my in the box processing, where I’ve got Pro Tools 9 and a Digi 002R audio interface. My computer is a Mac Book Pro laptop that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I don’t use multiple instances of these plug-ins all that often, but have yet to have any problems running any of them either on my home system or at the pro studio where I work.


OVERALL OPINION

The Waves Ltd. Maserati Collection is a great set of plug-ins to have as it makes for very high quality processing right inside your computer. Each plug-in in the bundle corresponds to a particular application, making it easy for new users and experienced ones alike. My favorites in the bundle would have to the B72 Bass Phattener, HMX Harmonics Generator, and VX1 Vocal Enhancer, but all of the plug-ins are at a high level and worthy of use. Again, it’s not going to give you an instant Tony Maserati sound by any means, but it’s cool that he had something to do with them and the fact that they’re awesome plug-ins really makes them worth using regardless. They’re definitely going to be best suited for pop tracks, so if you’re looking for something a bit grittier for rock, I’d recommend the Eddie Kramer bundle.
