New York, NY (September 20, 2018)—Allen & Heath has introduced another new networking card with the addition of its new SQ Waves card, intended for use with a Waves SoundGrid network.
The card lets any SQ mixer with a 64×64 96 kHz or 48 kHz interface connect to a Waves SoundGrid network using the I/O port, allowing engineers to access Waves plug-in processing, multitrack recording (at 96 kHz or 48 kHz), virtual soundcheck and audio distribution applications.
Waves SoundGrid is an Audio-over-Ethernet protocol developed by Waves for real-time professional audio applications. The card also enables the use of existing Waves plug-ins at a low latency, using standard Gigabit Ethernet networks rather than a USB connection.
“Waves SoundGrid has been a very popular option among our dLive users, with many systems on tour deploying a Waves card on recording duties,” commented Allen & Heath’s Head of Product, Nicola Beretta.
“Since the launch of SQ we’ve received requests for the same technology to be made available here and following the release of our Dante and SLink cards, we’re very happy to tick another box in the list of protocols and standards SQ supports.”
The SQ Waves card is shipping with an MSRP of $699.
