Waves Audio has announced that Plugin Alliance will now be SoundGrid-compatible with the release of its 100% SoundGrid Bundle V1.0.
Waves SoundGrid technology is an innovative networking and processing platform for real-time professional audio applications. Ideal for studios, live sound, broadcast, post-production and more, Waves SoundGrid provides an extremely low-latency environment for high-precision audio processing. SoundGrid uses standard computers, switches and servers; it integrates with analog and digital mixing consoles and provides a complete redundancy & recovery system. Together with a server, a Mac or PC host computer and an I/O, SoundGrid lets you run, in real time, a multitude of Waves award-winning reverbs, equalizers, compressors, and other mixing tools by Waves, as well as any other SoundGrid-compatible third-party plugins.
This carefully curated package delivers five precision processors from four of the most respected names in the business: Brainworx, SPL, elysia and Mäag Audio. Each plugin has been tuned and tested to run perfectly on SoundGrid to give FOH and monitor engineers their most valuable go-to devices.
“We’re really pleased to be able to bring products from key Plugin Alliance member companies like Brainworx, SPL, elysia and Mäag Audio to the Waves SoundGrid platform,” said Plugin Alliance CEO Matt Ward. “We have had many users from the enormous SoundGrid user base ask us when we will have plugins for them, and we couldn’t be happier to be able to say, ‘now!’”
Mick Olesh, Waves EVP Sales & Marketing adds: “As Waves is dedicated to providing our customers the freedom to use their plugin products anywhere and everywhere, we are happy to announce that Plugin Alliance has released the 100% SoundGrid bundle. Now users can have Plugin Alliance processors right alongside their Waves plugins in the SoundGrid environment, enabling a workflow of ultimate creative freedom and flexibility.”
