Waves, DiGiCo & Soundtracs partner to bring DiGiGrid
Waves, DiGiCo, and Soundtracs have introduced DiGiGrid, a product range destined to provide the audio market with a new solution that delivers an open approach to audio, plugins, control and audio resource networking.
From the studio to the stage and back again, today’s digital productions are getting more and more complex, with higher track counts, CPU-hungrier plugins and increasingly demanding real-time requirements – not to mention portability, expandability and connectivity issues. Now, Waves, DiGiCo and Soundtracs have joined forces to create hardware and software processing solutions to address these needs with DiGiGrid, which enables users of Native DAWs, Pro Tools and MADI-enabled live and broadcast mixing consoles access to Waves SoundGrid audio networking and real-time processing. DiGiGrid offers a full line of SoundGrid I/Os, Pro Tools-to-SoundGrid I/Os and MADI-to-SoundGrid I/Os.
In the studio, DiGiGrid systems provide the power and performance needed to meet the most taxing mixing challenges. DiGiGrid systems are expandable and ideal for users of all levels, from budget-minded audio enthusiasts to full-fledged multi-studio facilities. And because they use Intel-based SoundGrid DSP Servers to perform audio processing, DiGiGrid systems ensure maximum versatility and compatibility today, tomorrow, and into the future.
Live on stage, DiGiGrid MADI-to-SoundGrid interfaces enable users of any MADI-enabled console to take advantage of low-latency networking and processing, perfect for both FOH and monitor applications. Live processing and recording has never been easier, thanks to the flexibility and simplicity of DiGiGrid systems.
