Vuvuzela Suppressor plug-in developed and launched by Waves within a few days

Waves Audio quickly responded to the difficulties facing the 2010 FIFA World Cup telecasts by unveiling a solution that dramatically reduces the problematic sound of the omnipresent Vuvuzela trumpet favored by South African football (soccer) fans. In response to the widely publicized complaints from TV viewers and broadcasters about the continuous Vuvuzela blasts, Waves engineers feverishly began devising a solution to decrease the amount of noise.
Working in conjunction with a major television broadcaster, Waves crafted a real-time processing chain consisting of two plugins which proved effective in solving the task at hand: The WNS Waves Noise Suppressor and the Q10 Paragraphic Equalizer. These two audio plugins together not only reduce the Vuvuzela noise, they increase the intelligibility of the game announcers play-by-play action and colour commentary. Several major broadcast outlets started using the processing chain from its launch on June 15, 2010.
The processing chain for Vuvuzela noise reduction is available as load-and-use sessions for Pro Tools, Waves MultiRack, and Cubase.
