Cobalt Saphira is an advanced harmonics shaping tool that lets you add rich harmonics to your tracks in order to give them analog musicality, depth and "glue."

A NEW LEVEL OF CONTROL
Cobalt Saphira gives you an unprecedented level of digital control over different aspects of the harmonics you are adding: Edge and Warmth – for separately controlling and balancing even and odd harmonics4-band EQ – for separately shaping the frequency spectrum of each type of harmonicsHarmonics modes – seven different modes, with graphical representation so you can see the changes in harmonic structureTape – five tape speeds for adding wow-and-flutter modulation in order to give your tracks extra musicality and depth

A NEW WAY TO GLUE YOUR TRACKS
We often use the term "glue" when touting the benefits of compression. But the "glue" we hear from a good compressor is many times the result of added harmonics. Cobalt Saphira lets you directly control your harmonics without compression, helping to glue your tracks and turn them into a more musical, cohesive mix.

ADDED DEPTH
Achieving balance and clarity in a mix is expected. Achieving real depth in a mix is where they single out the pros. Cobalt Saphira allows you to inject this sought-after quality into your mixes.

Excelling on groups and sub-mixes and in mastering situations, Cobalt Saphira gives you rich harmonic enhancement that can be creatively tailored exactly how you like it — a full palette of analog sound for you to pour all over your tracks.

Cobalt Saphira is the first in the new Cobalt line of Waves plugins.
