Waves Scheps 73


Colorful EQ with Mic PreampModeled from the Classic 1073 Console


The only way a preamp and EQ can remain coveted for over half-a-century is by checking all the boxes: a sonic character that still stands alone, strategic control and design choices that prioritize results over complexity, and reverence—that persists to this day—from world-class engineers.

The 1073’s EQ and preamp by themselves embody excellence, but combining the two creates magic. The way the EQ processes the fat, warm, inviting preamp sound is the key to the 1073’s enduring success.

With precision analog modeling of the original’s behavior—tweaked to perfection by Grammy-winning mixing engineer Andrew Scheps (Adele, Metallica, Jay Z)—Scheps 73 keeps the legend alive.
