The Waves Doubler is a digital audio effects processor that replicates the incoming audio signal to another 2 or 4 voices. Each voice can be changed in Gain, Pan, Delay and Tune (Pitch). This achieves a wide range of colors of classic sounds that were popularized in the 1980’s by the use of digital hardware units that were designed to create harmonies but were more commonly used for pitch-shifted doubling. The main effect is “Enriching the sound.” Often it is used to double vocals or guitar tracks. For example, let’s say you have a vocal or instrument track that you want to “open up.” Take voice 1, detune it down four Cents and pan to the right. Take voice 2, detune it up four Cents and pan to the left. Setting the voice’s gain at about –12dB already makes a big difference; bringing it up to – 6dB should make it wide open. Changing the delay time of each voice and further offsetting and modulating the detune will further change the color of the sound. Running a track through the Doubler’s presets is a good way to get acquainted with the range of sounds of the Doubler. The essential difference between the Doubler and other pitch modulation and delay effects is mostly related to the Doubler’s ability to detune while preserving audio duration. In Phasers, Flangers and such, the modulation changes the delay and duration of the processed sound, producing a shifting comb-filtered effect. In the Doubler, the sound is decorrelated by the initial detune and the tuning can be further modulated. The effect resembles that of a doubled take rather than mixed with a modulated version of the source. The Doubler offers Two-Voice and Four-Voice components in: Mono to Mono Mono to Stereo Stereo to Stereo. The Doubler controls consist of per-voice control strips, direct signal controls, EQ, and global master controls. The basic Gain, Pan, Delay and Detune can be controlled using the Doubler’s Graphs.
