Waves has launched SoundGrid Studio System, a real-time processing and networking platform designed to bring your studio up to light speed.
It allows your DAW to offload its plugin processing and enables your devices to communicate with one another and with the devices of the people you work with.
The SoundGrid Studio system integrates seamlessly with all DAWs and SoundGrid-compatible I/Os, providing endless possibilities for setups of every size—from a single DAW with one SoundGrid I/O, to an entire network of host computers, I/Os, and SoundGrid DSP servers.
