Tony Maserati is one of the kings when it comes to things like R&B and pop music. He's helped produce and engineer stuff from Destiny's Child to Tupac, and he knows this genre inside and out. Considering how famous he is, it's no wonder he got his own signature plugins. This one is for the bass buss. To use this, simply enable it on your bass buss inside of your DAW, and you're good to go. The plugin itself is laid out in a very easy to utilize manner, so there should be no issues when it comes time to use this. The plugin has knobs for sensitivity, bass, treble, output, fx, tone and fx out. There are also buttons to select between different settings and whatnot.


Waves is, by far, one of the best software companies out there when it comes to things like performance and stability. First of all, this plugin is cross platform compatible. That means that nearly anybody can use this without any issues. As a Mac user, that's a huge plus for me. The plugin itself is rock solid, and I've never experienced a single crash directly related to utilizing this plugin inside of my DAW. There is one one issue that I did experience, and it's why I rated it a 9 instead of a 10. This plugin is a 32 bit plugin inside of OS X. Today, we're mostly living in a 64 bit world. For Logic Pro to utilize this plugin, it needs to run a special bridge application so I can have my higher RAM limit inside the actual DAW. I realize that the plugin is kinda old, but I'm hoping Waves will update this for 64 bit operation in future updates. I've been using the Mercury bundle for the past half a year or so, and it's been a wonderful experience.


Bass doesn't usually need a ton of attention compared to, say, drums. However, it's very easy for bass to totally destroy a mix if you don't know what you're doing. I find that a heavy hi-pass and lo-pass filter to solidify where the bass will sit tends to work the best. This plugin has helped me in a few ways for rock productions, but I wouldn't really use this on a metal mix. Worth checking out for sure, though.
