Hebden Bridge, U.K. (September 21, 2015)—Calrec Audio has unveiled an integrated Waves SoundGrid solution for its consoles that uses a new SoundGrid interface module on Calrec's Hydra2 network.
The module provides direct connection between Hydra2 and the Waves SoundGrid network, allowing integration and fewer parts in the chain.
Calrec customers can control Waves software, such as MultiRack, from the integrated touch display in Apollo and Artemis surfaces, allowing direct control of Waves plugins from the mix position. This capability gives Calrec users access to Waves plug-ins and broadcast tools, such as the new UM225/226 stereo-to-surround upmixers, WNS noise reduction tools and more.
All Calrec/SoundGrid I/Os sport the Hydra2 feature set, which includes source and destination protection, Hydra Patchbays, aliases, access rights, and redundancy. The module features two SoundGrid ports, allowing direct connection of two SoundGrid products, or expansion via a SoundGrid certified switch.
