Having recently teamed up to create The King’s Microphones plug-in, Waves and Abbey Road have confirmed their intention to continue the collaboration.

Launched earlier this year, The King’s Microphones plug-in based on three historic microphones now held by the EMI Archive Trust and formerly used by members of the Royal Family in public addresses.

Now, commenting on the strategic partnership between the two organisations, Waves CEO Gilad Keren remarked: “Abbey Road Studios is without a doubt the most famous recording complex in the world. We are thrilled to be able to continue our collaboration with them on what is sure to be an outstanding series of audio plug-ins.”

Jonathan Smith, SVP at Abbey Road Studios, added: “Since the early 1990s, Waves has been developing groundbreaking plug-ins for the audio industry. We are very proud to be working closely with Waves in the creation of exciting new products based on Abbey Road Studios’ legendary equipment and expertise.”

Abbey Road repeats MWA triumph

Repeating its category success of 2010, Abbey Road was again named Studio of the Year at the latest edition of the Music Week Awards, which took place at The Roundhouse in London on 24 April.

No plans to sell Abbey Road, says EMI

UK: The announcement follows a global outcry about the rumoured sale of the iconic London studio, writes David Davies. Little more than a year after EMI Group closed its other celebrated London recording facility, Olympic, 16 February saw a spate of reports suggesting that the label was about to offload what is arguably the greatest jewel in its crown: Abbey Road Studios.

Abbey Road Studios given listed building status

UK: UK culture minister Margaret Hodge granted the site Grade II status the week after EMI announced it was not planning to sell the iconic facility, writes David Davies. English Heritage originally called for Abbey Road Studios to be protected from radical alteration in 2003, but it was only after rumours of a possible sale began to circulate that the UK Government announced it would devote "urgent attention" to the proposal.
