SQ Waves provides any SQ mixer with a 64×64, 96kHz or 48kHz interface to a Waves SoundGrid network using the I/O Port. Engineers can now fit the Waves card to any SQ mixer for Waves plugin processing, multitrack recording (at 96kHz or 48kHz), virtual soundcheck and audio distribution applications.
Waves SoundGrid is an Audio-over-Ethernet protocol developed by Waves for real-time professional audio applications. The card also enables the use of existing Waves plugins at a very low latency, using standard Gigabit Ethernet networks rather than a USB connection.
An integrated Ethernet switch with two EtherCon and one RJ45 SoundGrid ports is provided on the M-Waves module to allow connection of multiple devices.
SoundGrid is an Audio-over-Ethernet networking protocol developed by Waves for real-time professional audio applications. It provides an extremely low latency environment using standard Gigabit Ethernet networks. Audio processing can be performed natively on a computer or on dedicated servers. Audio is streamed from an iLive MixRack or GLD mixer to the computer or server, and back to the iLive/GLD after being processed by a multitude of Waves reverbs, equalizers, compressors and more.
