Product Description for the Waves J-37 Tape

Waves and Abbey Road Studios present the J37 tape saturation plugin, a precision model of the very machine used to record many of the greatest masterpieces in modern music. With a variety of user-adjustable controls including Tape Speed, Bias, Noise, Saturation, Wow and Flutter, the Waves: Abbey Road J37 faithfully recreates the inimitable sonic signature of the original machine. In addition to the J37 itself, three exclusive oxide tape formulas have been modeled. Specially developed by EMI during the ‘60s and ‘70s, each formula has its own unique frequency response and harmonic distortion behavior. In order to push the envelope even further, a comprehensive Tape Delay unit has been added to complement those warm tones.

The Waves: Abbey Road J37 tape emulation plugin will bring stunning analog warmth to your digital recordings, delivering a level of hardware realism never before experienced “in the box.”

Features

  • Tape saturation plugin
  • Created in association with Abbey Road Studios
  • Modeled on the machine used to create countless classic '60s tracks
  • Includes models of three exclusive tape formulas developed by EMI
  • Adds analog warmth to digital recordings
  • Controls for Bias, Wow, Flutter, Tape Speed and more
  • Comprehensive Tape Delay including three different delay types, Sync, LP and HP filter controls and more
  • Input level determines the level at which the signal hits the virtual tape. Higher levels result in
  • Increased harmonic distortion, saturation, and compression.
  • Range : - 18 – +18 db
  • Default : -9 db
  • Output level controls the total signal output level.
  • Range : -18 db – +18 db
  • Default : 9 db
  • Please note : default input and output level settings were chosen to accommodate contemporary
  • Signal loudness. Input and output level settings of 0 will result in the closest approximation of “the
  • Abbey road sound.”
  • Level link gangs the input and output level controls. The link relationship is inversely proportional,
  • So an increase in the input level results in a corresponding decrease in output level and vice versa.
  • Range : on, off
  • Default : on
  • Tape formula determines the type of modeled recording formula.
  • Range : 888, 811, 815
  • Default : 815
  • Speed selects the simulated tape speed.
  • Range : 7.5 ips, 15 ips
  • Default : 15 ips
  • When switching between the two speeds, the noise and frequency response will change accordingly. At
  • 15 ips, high frequency response is increased and noise is one octave higher than at 7.5 ips.
  • Bias controls the level of the ultrasonic bias signal.
  • Range : nominal, +3 db over bias, +5 db over bias
  • Default : nominal (+1.5 db bias)
  • Modeled tracks determines which modeled tracks are used for processing.
  • Waves / abbey road j37
  • mono component
  • Range : 2, 3
  • Default : 2
  • stereo component
  • Range:
    • 2 (track 2 processing applied to both left and right channels)
    • 2 + 3 (track 2 processing applied to left channel, track 3 processing applied to right Channel)
    • 3 (track 3 processing applied to both left and right channels)
  • Default : 2 + 3
  • Wow depth controls the amount of frequency modulation applied to the signal. Default setting is the
  • Average wow measured on the original j37. Negative range values lower the amount of wow effect;
  • Positive values raise it. Since wow varies according to tape speed, user-selected vales yield different
  • Results at 15 ips and 7.5 ips.
  • Range : off (-50) – +50
  • Default : 0
  • Wow rate controls the amount of deviation from the default wow frequency setting. Default setting is
  • The wow measured on the original j37. Negative range values lower the amount of wow effect;
  • Positive values raise it. Since wow varies according to tape speed, user-selected vales yield different
  • Results at 15 ips and 7.5 ips.
  • Range : -50 – +50
  • Default : 0
  • Flutter depth controls the amount of flutter effect applied to the signal. Default setting is the
  • Average flutter measured on the original j37. Negative range values lower the amount of flutter effect;
  • Positive values raise it. Since flutter varies according to tape speed, user-selected vales yield different
  • Results at 15 ips and 7.5 ips.
  • Range : off (-50) – +50
  • Default : 0
  • Waves / abbey road j37
  • Flutter rate controls the amount of deviation from the default flutter rate. Default setting is the
  • Average flutter measured on the original j37. Negative range values lower the amount of flutter effect;
  • Positive values raise it. Since flutter varies according to tape speed, user-selected vales yield different
  • Results at 15 ips and 7.5 ips.
  • Range : -50 – +50
  • Default : 0
  • Noise level controls the level of added modeled noise, including noise modulations and signal
  • Additive noise.
  • Range : - 24 db – +24 db
  • Default : off
  • Saturation level controls the amount of saturation applied to the signal. This results in a different
  • Type of saturation than that achieved by raising the input level and lowering the output level. Both
  • Types may be used simultaneously.
  • Range : 0 – 30
  • Default : 0
  • Delay type toggles between delay types.
  • Range : slap, feedback (all components), ping-pong (stereo component only)
  • Default : slap
  • Delay mode toggles between delay modes.
  • in insert mode, the delay is added to the direct signal.
  • in send/return mode, the direct signal is removed from the output and only the processed signal
  • Is sent to the output.
  • Range : insert, send/return
  • Default : insert
  • Delay level controls the amount of delay, depending on delay type. When using the slap type,
  • Delay is expressed in db, while in feedback and ping-pong delay types, delay is expressed as a
  • Percent. Perceived loudness level is preserved when moving between delay types. For example, if
  • Slap level is set to -6 db, then switching to feedback/ping-pong will change the level to 50%
  • (equivalent to -6 db).
  • Waves / abbey road j37
  • When using the slap type delay and changing from insert mode to send/return mode:
  • The level will default to 0 db.
  • slap level is represented in decibels.
  • Range : off (-40 db) – 0 db
  • Default : off
  • feedback/ping-pong level is represented as a percentage.
  • Range : off – 100
  • Default : off
  • Delay time controls the time of the tape delay effect.
  • Range : 1 ms – 2000 ms
  • Default : 184 ms (which reflects the distance between record and playback heads @ 7.5ips)
  • Delay link links the delay level and delay time controls. If there is an offset between them, this
  • Offset is preserved when delay link is activated.
  • Range : on, off
  • Default : on
  • Delay sync controls synchronization to the host tempo.
  • Range : 1/64t – 1/1 (whole note)
  • Default : off
Please note:
  • delay is limited to 2 seconds. Therefore, at tempos below 120 bpm, whole note duration is not available.
Please note
  • When delay level is set to 50% and above, there is a chance to create infinite feedback due to the tape's transfer function and the tonality of the input signal
  • Delay hp controls the high-pass cutoff frequency on the delay path only.
  • Range : 16.1 hz – 21357 hz
  • Waves / abbey road j37
  • Default : off (16 hz)
  • Delay lp controls the low-pass cutoff frequency on the delay path only.
  • Range : 21203.9 hz – 16 hz
  • Default : off (21357 hz)
  • Vu meter displays the input or output level, depending on your selection.
  • Range : -20 vu – +3 vu
  • Vu calibration controls the vu meter headroom calibration. It’s represented by the small screwhead
  • Below the vu meter display and does not have a visible label. For most users, the default
  • Headroom setting of 18 db should be the best choice. (on the stereo component, use the screw located
  • On the left to calibrate both meters.)
  • Range : 8 db – 24 db
  • Default : 18 db
  • Meter i/o determines the metering mode.
  • Range : input, output
  • Default : input
  • Clip indicator indicates peak clipping.
