Waves Announces Additional Processing Power For SoundGrid DSP Servers

Waves Audio has announced X9 version processors with more processing power for three SoundGrid DSP Servers. 

With X9, Waves said users will now get more processing power for the same price. Three units have been updated with 9th-generation Intel Core CPU, for processing audio through hundreds of plugins at ultra-low latency.

Waves said shipments start immediately for the Intel 9th-generation processors with the SoundGrid Extreme Server-C Server, a DSP unit that processes hundreds of SoundGrid-compatible plugins in real time, live or in the studio. It features eight Core Intel Coffee Lake i7-9700 CPU and 8GB RAM.

Shortly after, Waves will start shipping two more server models with the new 9th-generation processors: the full-rack SoundGrid Extreme Server (which offers the same specs as the half-rack SoundGrid Extreme Server-C in a full-rack profile); and the SoundGrid Server One-C, a DSP unit that relieves computers from plugin processing. It features four Core Intel Coffee lake i3-9100 CPU and 8GB RAM.
