UK: Highly influential engineer/producer Eddie Kramer (pictured) is to promote the new Waves plug-in bundle, The Eddie Kramer Collection, writes David Davies. Best-known for his long association with Jimi Hendrix and legendary sessions with The Beatles and Led Zeppelin, Kramer will visit London's Strongroom Studio on October 6 as part of a multi-city US/European discussion tour.

In addition to presenting the eponymously-titled new Waves plug-in bundle, Kramer will discuss recording techniques, vintage analogue gear and today's plug-in models, as well as sharing anecdotes from his lengthy recording career.

The result of a close collaboration between Kramer and Waves' R&D team, The Eddie Kramer Collection comprises five application-specific plug-ins, with dedicated tools for guitar, drums, vocals, bass and effects. According to Waves, the collection gives producers and engineers "access to Kramer's personalised processing chains".

"As a producer/engineer, my main function is to interpret the artist's vision, and give them the sonic palette to help realise their dreams," said Kramer. "If I can make that happen, then I've done my job. I look forward to spreading that message through these Waves events."

Kramer will appear at the Strongroom Bar on Tuesday October 6 from 6.30pm. Entrance is free, but would-be attendees do need to register. More information via the second link below.
