Dual-Cabinet and Dual-Mic Options
Playing through two cabinets or recording with two different microphones are great ways to get a great guitar sound in the studio. Waves Amp gives you these options in every configuration, providing six different microphones to choose from, with each either on or off axis. You can also reverse the phase of either cabinet for even more tonal options. Cabinet sounds can be blended together easily using the Gain controls, or panned separately when used in stereo.

GTR features 23 Stomps, with everything you need to custom shape your sound for any musical situation. From Distortions, Delays, EQs, Compressors, and Reverbs to Phaser, Flanger, WahWah, Chorus, and more, GTR has got you covered. And with features like sync-to-host BPM, drag-and-drop simplicity, and MIDI control, it’s never been easier to dial up your sound.
Automation and MIDI Control
The PedalBoard and Stomps are fully automatable, letting you create dramatic effects that change over time.
You can also use an outboard MIDI controller such as an expression pedal for real time control of any Stomp parameter.
In fact, using a MIDI foot controller, you can control nearly every function of the Waves PedalBoard, switching Stomp effects in and out or calling up entire chains with ease. This lets you program effects for an entire song and make the changes in real time, just as you would with a real pedal board.
In keeping with the goal of achieving pro sounds quickly, the Waves PedalBoard comes with dozens of carefully designed presets. These include entire chains of Stomps that have been tweaked to produce stunning effects.
There are 23 Stomps, including everything from basic EQ, Compression and Gating to modulation effects such as Flanger, Phaser, Wah, Octaver and Chorus, to various delays and reverbs as well as several flavors of distortion. Many stomps that have time based controls such as LFO rate or Delay Time can be synced to the host BPM.
Also included is the Waves Tuner, which can be set to Chromatic or Alternate tunings. A lit arrow lets you know which way to tune, while a highlighted note tells you which note you’re tuning to. The tuning reference can be adjusted plus or minus 6 Hertz from 440.
Just plug in GTR’s custom hardware and you’re ready to rock.
Electric guitars produce high impedance signals with an extremely wide range of frequencies and dynamics. But most recording systems don’t offer guitar-compatible inputs. This incompatibility isn’t addressed by most amp modeling solutions, and the result is irretrievable tone loss.
Waves and PRS Guitars developed a hardware interface which retains the guitar’s full range of dynamics and fidelity as it transforms the signal to low impedance, converting the guitar’s unbalanced signal to a balanced signal for better hum control. The result is superior fidelity at the most critical point in the signal path.
Waves/PRS GTR Hardware Interface features:
- Transparent preamplifier circuit for a wide range of inputs and pickups
- Custom-designed circuitry
- Audiophile-quality components
- Studio-grade jacks
- Superior wiring
