The Waves Ltd. Kramer Guitar Channel is one of the plug-ins found in the Eddie Kramer Collection of plug-ins. If you're looking at this, you probably already know all about Eddie Kramer, but for those who don't, you've certainly heard his work on Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin albums. Each of the plug-ins in this bundle pertain to a particular application, with this one obviously focusing on guitar processing. The plug-in has a similar interface to the others in the bundle, and it's overall pretty easy to use. There are three main modes to choose from - rhythm 1, rhythm 2, and lead. Once you've chosen which mode suits you best, it gives you a pretty good number of parameters to work with, including those for sensitivity, compression, treble and mid EQ, FX level, flange mix, depth, verb mix, delay, delay mix, and overall output level. As you can tell, there's definitely a lot to work with here as this is quite a versatile guitar plug-in. I haven't yet had a need to look at a manual for this plug-in...

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The system that I'm running the Waves Ltd. Kramer Guitar Channel on is Pro Tools 9 based, as I was previously running Pro Tools LE 8 with it. I've got a Mac Book Pro computer that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I'll either run Pro Tools as a standalone piece of software or in tandem with a Digi 002R audio interface if I'm recording or working at home. I've only tried running a few instances of this plug-in at once within a single session, and haven't encountered any performance issues with it as of yet.

OVERALL OPINION

Although I usually use individual processing plug-ins for true mixing, the Waves Ltd. Kramer Guitar Channel is the perfect way to get a quick and easy guitar sound in the box. It's really easy to use while at the same time gives you a ton of parameters and control to work with, as it's sort of a Swiss army knife of plug-ins for guitar. In fact, all of the plug-ins in the Kramer bundle work this way, as it's definitely a bundle worth considering adding to any DAW. I've only printed a couple of mixes with this plug-in on it so far, but have used it a lot for getting out quick rough mixes since it's so easy to get a sound with it. I don't know that I'd recommend this bundle over something like the Renaissance Maxx bundle, but if you've already got most of the Waves essential plug-ins, the Guitar Channel and Eddie Kramer bundle are definitely some plug-ins worth trying out a demo for!
