The DSPRO StageGrid 1000 is a compact I/O device designed to operate with Waves’ eMotion LV1 live mixing systems. Combining eight mic/line inputs, four analogue outputs and digitally controlled AES/EBU I/Os, the SoundGrid-compatible stagebox adds more I/Os for stage performers or at FOH and monitor mix positions. The 1U unit is powered by the same audio interface as the larger DSPRO StageGrid 4000. Fully compatible with Waves’ SoundGrid ecosystem, the unit interfaces with SoundGrid hosts and network components to make up a scalable audio distribution infrastructure for processing multichannel audio at ultra-low latency using Waves’ plug-ins.
Waves Audio is now shipping the WSG-HY128 card for Yamaha Rivage PM Series Consoles. The card is now available for HY slots, making it possible to run Waves plug-ins on Yamaha Rivage PM series consoles at ultra-low latency using Waves SoundGrid technology. Together with a SoundGrid DSP server, a Mac or PC and authorised Waves plug-ins, the WSG-HY128 transports up to 128 channels of audio at 44.1/48/88.2/96kHz using Waves’ reverbs, equalisers, compressors, limiters and delays. Additional SoundGrid I/O devices can also be assigned to a network, with the WSG-HY128 card using the Waves SoundGrid protocol to connect all I/O devices with the DSP server and the host computer. Multiple console synchronisation and digital splits are supported using clock Sync-over-Ethernet (SoE). The card can accept firmware changes and upgrades.
Adding new features to Waves’ catalogue of plug-ins, Waves V12 is available. Together with an ability to resize plug-ins, new additions include an accelerated preset search engine, sharp retina-ready graphics and plug-ins added to select premium bundles. A choice of five GUI sizes up to 200% of the original size are available when resizing plug-ins. Bypassing the need to manually browse preset menus, V12 presets can be instantly located and auditioned using the preset browser. With the addition of retina-ready graphics to all Waves plug-ins, the CPU load can be reduced by processing plug-in graphics on a graphics card.
