Anaheim, CA (January 20, 2009)–Waves Audio has formed Waves Live Division, a dedicated branch aimed at the live sound market sector; its first product is the D-Show Enabler, which reportedly makes more than 50 Waves TDM plug-ins compatible with Digidesign’s D-Show live mixing consoles.
“Waves has an unwavering commitment to great sound and to offering performers and engineers the tools they need,” stated Gilad Keren, CEO of Waves. “With the Waves Live Division, Waves can now offer more formal, dedicated efforts to serving the needs of this substantial group of professional audio engineers.” Asher Bitansky, Waves Director of Business Development, has been appointed by Waves to oversee the business side of the Live Division’s formation.
As part of the new Division’s product initiatives, more than 50 of Waves’ plug-ins are now compatible with Digidesign’s D-Show platform, using the new Waves D-Show Enabler. Award-winning Waves TDM plug-in bundles like the SSL 4000 Collection, V-Series, The API Collection, MaxxVolume, and more are now available for use in live sound.
Waves has an interesting history in the live sound market. MaxxBCL was the first Waves product to help deliver more bass out of PA systems, including line arrays, and since its introduction over three years ago, it has been used by sound companies, live venues, and places of worship around the world. Also, since its release in November 2006, the Waves Live Bundle for Digidesign’s Venue consoles has been adopted by FOH engineers such as “Big Mick” Hughes (Metallica, Led Zeppelin), Ken “Pooch” Van Druten (Linkin Park, System of a Down), Phil Strong (Kanye West), Cirque du Soleil’s Jonathan Deans and Leon Rothenberg.
