imgNew York, NY (February 4, 2014)—Waves Audio has introduced the SoundGrid Studio System. According to the company, the open platform integrates with all DAWs and SoundGrid-compatible I/Os, and allows users to run a nearly unlimited amount of plug-ins, track and rehearse with full-on effects and near-zero latency, and connect everything through a centralized hub.

The SoundGrid Studio System includes the SoundGrid Studio Application, which integrates with all DAWs and SoundGrid-compatible I/Os, allowing setups to range from a single DAW with one SoundGrid I/O, to a network of host computers, I/Os and SoundGrid DSP servers.

The mixer component of the SoundGrid System, eMotion ST, integrates with StudioRack and lets users run SoundGrid plug-ins for low-latency monitoring and rehearsing outside of their DAW.

Finally, the StudioRack Virtual Plugin Rack—a virtual plug-in rack designed to run plug-in chains and offload plug-in processing to a SoundGrid DSP server—opens as an insert on any channel, letting users run chains of up to eight plug-ins per rack, with the option of directing the processing to a host computer CPU or a SoundGrid DSP server.
