Waves Greg Wells ToneCentric


ToneCentric is all about the sweet, “singing” overtones of tube-based analog gear. Simply turn the one knob to wrap your mix bus in warmth—or put it in small amounts on every individual track, for a beautiful cumulative effect.

ToneCentric captures the analog studio chain of Grammy®-winning producer/mixer Greg Wells (Adele, Dua Lipa, John Legend): “I’m always on the hunt for ways to pull more music out of the speakers,” Greg says. “I get a beautiful effect when I run audio through healthy vacuum tubes and transformers wound the right way, and record it to a great tape machine.”

“There are certain pieces of gear in my studio that consistently do this for me without fail: a holy-grail 1950s mono tube compressor, a tape machine, a custom-made vacuum tube console. In developing ToneCentric, I aimed to capture that wonderful analog footprint, while keeping things very full sonically, with an added depth of field.”“There is an enormous amount going on behind the simple one knob. Different dial positions home in on variations of the basic process, so you’ll find multiple sweet spots as you turn the knob. I hope you like it as much as I do!”—Greg Wells
