Enigma is for vocal or instrumental leads, re-mixing and extensive re-processing, sound design, subtle ghosting of effects, treatment of reverb sends, and more, but certainly not for purist audio! This is a processor that will give you some “how did they do that” power. All Waves processors have a central set of controls and functions called the WaveSystem. This gives you real power-use advantages not found in any other processors in the world, whether hardware or software. If you’re not familiar with WaveSystem, refer to the manual of WaveSystem so that you can take advantage of these amazing user-interface features. Once you learn them, they are available in every Waves software processor. The Engimatic Processor Enigma can create notches in the signal, somewhat as flangers and phasers do, but with some added twists: there is a reverb-type processor, a feedback loop, an LFO, filters in various places, and some hard-to-describe interac- tive controls (sometimes they work very differently, depending on the setup). That’s why we gave it the name Enigma. You can think of it as a very complex phaser/flanger with a reverb/feedback network with complex filtering, plus some modulation. All of these are optional, and of course this is what gives you so much flexibility. New feature For many native platforms, the Enigma can now be used with 88.2/96kHz sessions. This is dependent on your platform (application you are using) and your hardware (sound card).
