Waves Announces FIT Controller For The eMotion LV1 Live Mixer

Waves Audio has announced the Waves FIT Controller for the eMotion LV1 Live Mixer. FIT is an intuitive control surface that delivers operation of the eMotion LV1 mixer to live sound engineers who prefer the tactile response of faders, knobs and buttons for console operations. 

Engineered by Waves and MIDI controller manufacturers MIDIPLUS, FIT is a hands-on control unit for the eMotion LV1 Live Mixer. It is designed to function as an integrated 16-fader bank with the LV1 mixer. This is made possible with 16 + 1 motorized 100mm faders, each featuring mute, solo and select buttons, a multi-function rotary control and a bright display for each channel.

Fader banks are controlled using eight dedicated layer switches for toggling between the eight factory or custom layers in the LV1 Live Mixer. The channel rotary controls can be set to adjust preamp gain or pan per channel with the corresponding function label shown in the display.

In addition, the 16 select channel toggles can be set to “USER” mode to provide easy access to mute groups and user-assignable keys.

The controller weighs 4.5 pounds (10Kg) and can be fitted with rack ears to mount into a 19-inch 7U rack space. Rear panel connections include a USB Type B port for computer connection, 12V 2A DC power input and two 5V 0.5A USB outlets for external LED lighting.
