Product Description

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.

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
