Waves Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain - Electronic Delivery

Modular mastering chain plug-in modeled after the EMI TG12410 Transfer Console used in all Abbey Road's mastering suites since the early '70s to this day
MFR# ABRDTGMC

Product Description

Waves Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain is a modular mastering chain plug-in modeled after the EMI TG12410 Transfer Console used in all Abbey Road's mastering suites since the early '70s to this day. Use the Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain to create custom processing chains with a flexible flow and the TG magic on the master bus, or on individual tracks/groups in a mixing session.

The distinct solid-state transistor-based sound of the TG12410 has proven itself time and again over many decades. Whether it's used for mastering as a complete console, or for mixing with only select modules, the TG brings nothing less than magic — the same magic heard on albums like Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon, Nirvana's In Utero, Radiohead's OK Computer and Ed Sheeran's "+". Thanks to this Waves/Abbey Road collaboration, the TG12410 is available outside of Abbey Road Studios and you can now bring the very same magic to your own productions.

Just like the original console, the TG Mastering Chain plug-in is made out of modules (or cassettes):

  • TG12411 Input Module
  • TG12412 Tone Module (EQ)
  • TG12413 Compressor/Limiter Module
  • TG12414 Filter Module
  • TG12416 V.A.L (Spread) Module (stereo component only) incorporated into the Output Module.

Modules can be interchanged (except for input/output modules) and switched on/off to allow for a flexible processing flow and creating custom chains. Individual modules can be used on different tracks and group buses in a mixing session, as well as on the master bus in mastering sessions.

The compressor/limiter module offers two flavors — Original and Modern — and is coupled with 48 dB/Oct linear-phase sidechain filters to help you take complete control over your sound.

Original — aggressive and "dirty" just like the '70s and exactly how we modeled it.Modern — an original Waves and Abbey Road design based on the TG topology, that will help you get pristine sound with higher levels of perceived loudness.

Alongside the TG Mastering Chain is the Meter Bridge component (separate plug-in), offering 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.

With different processing modes (Stereo/Duo/MS) and monitoring modes (Stereo/Mono/L/R/M/S), the Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain plug-in is truly a powerful tool. Use it in the studio or for live sound with a dedicated Live component.

Features:

  • Integral part of the Abbey Road sound since the early 1970s to the present day
  • 5 modules that can be used independently
  • Use in mastering or in mixing sessions
  • 48 dB/Oct linear-phase sidechain filters
  • Meter Bridge component provides a new approach to metering
  • More than just the original sound (with a new compressor design, SC filters and the meter bridge)
  • Stereo/Duo/MS processing modes
  • Stereo/Mono/L/R/M/S monitoring modes
  • Live component

An ultimate tool for my studio.

By Bob M on January 12, 2021

I don't go to it for any mastering although I'm sure I could but as a bus tool I'm glad I got it.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
