Hi all!

Is anyone using the Abbey Road Collection plug in's from Waves?

Just wondered if anyone has any templates or settings for use in Reason or Logic Pro for a real 'Beatles sound' from various stages of their recording careers?

Thanks in advance

Hi @sooper8 , welcome to the forum.

You might like to check out this video. They are not only using waves plugins, but also a bit of hardware and mics and amps used at those recordings (more or less).

There are also these guys that do a lot of Beatles covers videos, they did this video explaining how they get their sound closest to the original.

Hope it helps, though you probably have seen the videos already.

I would think the most authentic Abbey Road sound would be using actual Moog synthesizers and Hammond Organs with a Leslie speaker. The leslie can also be used for guitar on Octopus Garden. Since I don’t have thousands of dollars for that equipment  I’ll check this plugin out, it looks cool.

Thanks for the input guys.

I have the Strawberry Fields mellotron to a tee, but then again, that's not so hard considering it's just a case of experimenting on that. The tricky bit was finding a tape reverb that was good for it.(not sure if I can post an audio clip on here but will put Strawberry Fields intro if I can?)

More what I was after was a 4 or 8 track template for me, and later the band to use when we put some ideas down.

The Abbey Road plug in gives everything you need, from the reverb plates, to the analogue tape, the ADT and so on. It is pretty easy to approximate a single channel to sound very Beatlesey but the overall mix is somewhat harder

Once again, thanks for the welcome and the ideas!

Just one last shout-out on this to see if anyone has any Logic Pro or Propellerheads Reason templates for mixing a Beatles-y sounding track...(using audio input and the Abbey Road plug in's or anything at all really.

Thanks in advance
