The Waves Ltd. Eddie Kramer Bass Channel is a software plug-in that comes in the Eddie Kramer Collection of plug-ins. Eddie Kramer I guess was involved with designing or approving these plug-ins, who of course is the famed engineered who was Jimi Hendrix's engineer for starters. I installed this plug-in along with the rest of the Waves Complete bundle, so there was anything different about installing this plug-in compared to the other Waves' plugs since it was done all at once. The interface of this plug-in looks just like the others in the bundle, and does share some similar characteristics, but of course as far as sound goes it's it's own beast. The parameters that are given to work with are knobs for sensitivity, bass, treble, compression, and output level. There are two different bass channels on here one of which will give you a bit more compression than the other. A manual shouldn't be something that is needed here.


The system that I'm running the Waves Ltd. Eddie Kramer Bass Channel on is Pro Tools LE based. It's my home recording studio and it consists of a Mac Book Pro lap top that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I'm using Pro Tools LE 8 with a Digi 002R audio interface. This system has definitely been powerful enough for me to run most plug-ins including the Eddie Kramer Bass Channel plug-in comfortably. I've only tried running it on an amp'd and a direct bass track at once, and I don't think that too many people will be needing it for much more than this within a single session.


For getting a quick bass guitar sounding happening, the Waves Ltd. Eddie Kramer Bass Channel is the perfect plug-in. It gives you the best of a few different worlds, as there is a lot that you can do with the plug-in between the EQ, compression, and two separate bass channels. When I'm doing a real mix down I'll usually run bass through some outboard gear to do the job that this would do, but if I'm working in the box this is usually a great place to get the bass started with. The Waves Eddie Kramer bundle is definitely one worth considering if you want a group of general instrument and vocal processing, as they'll pretty much give you everything you need to do a mix.
