Knoxville, TN (April 30, 2018)—Waves Audio’s MultiRack plug-in host is now available in a configuration that integrates with DiGiCo SD-series consoles.
As a result, MultiRack will now allow users to mix with Waves and third-party SoundGrid-compatible plug-ins on DiGiCo SD-series consoles. A a SoundGrid-certified network switch and Waves I/O Card for DiGiCo SD Consoles, available from DiGiCo, will be required.
The MultiRack plug-in host software is on a computer connected to the console. Processing is handled by a Waves SoundGrid server, which handles processing capabilities at a latency low enough to allow plug-ins to run in real time on the live mixing console. The plug-ins can be controlled directly from the console, including touch-and-turn plug-in parameter adjustments and the ability to manage sessions and snapshots.
Console mirroring is supported, allowing a fully mirrored MultiRack setup to be used across redundant console setups, reflecting any setting and parameter changes.
Integrated remote control of Waves MultiRack and SoundGrid-compatible plug-ins is also now supported on DiGiCo’s SD12 Console, using DiGiCo’s DMI Waves I/O card.
Mick Olesh, Waves EVP of Sales & Marketing, noted, “With Waves MultiRack and SoundGrid technology, we are happy to be able to offer DiGiCo SD-users the ultimate tools in order to achieve a highly professional and creative live mixing experience.”
James Gordon, DiGiCo managing director, added, “It’s almost ten years since we first started working closely with Waves, and it's important for us to be part of their new vision on future integration. This will allow DiGiCo SD consoles to control an external Waves MultiRack system, while maintaining the high level of integration both companies’ clients have come to rely on.”
