The SoundGrid Studio System is 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 sizefrom a single DAW with one SoundGrid I/O, to an entire network of host computers, I/Os, and SoundGrid DSP servers.
The SoundGrid Studio Application runs on your host computer and manages all software and hardware connected to the SoundGrid network. The SoundGrid Studio System is an open platform that seamlessly integrates with most popular DAWs and SoundGrid- compatible I/Os, providing endless possibilities for setups of every size from a single DAW with one SoundGrid I/O, to a whole network of host computers, I/Os, and SoundGrid DSP servers. With its dynamic I/O mapping ability, the SoundGrid Studio Application lets you configure your SoundGrid network, manage its various components, and set up any combination of SoundGrid-compatible devices. Its configuration module lets you assign and route drivers and hardware devices. The SoundGrid Studio Application also enables I/O sharing between several computers whose resources are managed from the designated host computer.
MultiRack is a software host that lets FOH and monitor engineers run multiple, simultaneous instances of the same award-winning Waves plugins used in recording studios and mixing rooms the world over. The world's best-sounding reverbs, equalizers, compressors, limiters and delays are at your fingertips, without the limitations of hardware and at a fraction of the cost.
StudioRack is a software rack designed to run plugin chains, giving you the choice of directing the processing to a SoundGrid DSP server or to your host computer's CPU. When processing your plugin chains on SoundGrid, StudioRack lets you monitor your tracks in low latency via the eMotion ST Mixer. Compatible with most popular hosts, StudioRack has a dedicated component for Pro Tools TDM and HDX systems, giving you access to both Avid and Waves offload capabilities.
eMotion ST is the mixer part of the SoundGrid Studio system. Combined with StudioRack, it lets you run SoundGrid plugins for low- latency monitoring, giving you complex monitor mixing options while recording with your DAW.
eMotion ST is a high-quality mixer with 8 multi-purpose inputs, 64 additional StudioRack input channels, 2 FX busses, 6 mix busses, and a main stereo mix. Since the mixer operates within the SoundGrid network, any available SoundGrid-compatible I/O device, whether hardware or driver-based, can provide it with inputs and outputs.
The eMotion ST mixer can run hundreds of Waves and third-party SoundGrid-compatible plugins in low latency, replacing in this respect the external mixer traditionally used to create monitor mixes for studios and headphones.
Developed in association with renowned pro audio inventor Dan Dugan, the Waves Dugan Automixer is a groundbreaking software version of the popular Dugan Speech System Automatic Mixing Controllers used the world over.
Incorporating Dugan's proprietary voice-activated process, the Waves Dugan Automixer plugin automatically controls the gains of multiple microphones in real time, dramatically reducing feedback, studio noise and comb filtering from adjacent microphones. It maintains a consistent system gain, even when multiple speakers are talking simultaneously, and makes perfectly matched crossfades, without any signal compression, and without a noise gate that may cause unwanted sonic artifacts.
Available for virtually any console, the Dugan Automixer is the ultimate solution for broadcast news panels, talk shows, houses of worship, film and television dialog recording, and any other discussion panel or conference scenario involving multiple microphones and participants.
