Waves Audio Introduces SoundGrid Axis Proton

At AES, Waves Audio introduced SoundGrid Axis Proton, a custom-designed computer, optimized through a selection of components to run Waves audio applications such as the 16-channel eMotion LV1 live mixer and Waves SuperRack live plugin rack.

Waves said the plugin rack allows users to run up to 128 audio channels through multiple instances of Waves plugins with near-zero latency. It offers users endless customization options.

With its Waves SoundGrid connectivity, Axis Proton integrates with SoundGrid I/Os and servers, acting as the “brain” of a SoundGrid system. Designed to perform with stability, Axis Proton is optimized for use in live setups of up to 16 stereo channels.

Also available from Waves is a half-rack 1U slick aluminum casing that fits perfectly in a 1U rack shelf when paired with the Proton Server. These devices can be combined with the eMotion LV1 live 16-channel mixer.
