Waves Audio, the world’s leading developer of professional audio signal processing technologies and plugins, has announced the new version, V13, of all Waves SoundGrid applications.
This release includes two brand-new applications: Waves MyFOH, a tablet app for remote control of the Waves eMotion LV1 live mixer; and Waves mRecall, a mobile app for remote snapshot/scene recall of Waves live sound (eMotion LV1 & SuperRack) and Waves Commercial Audio systems. Additionally, V13 includes updated versions of the following Waves SoundGrid applications: eMotion LV1 live mixer, SuperRack live plugin rack, MyMon personal monitor mixing app, SoundGrid QRec app for live recording and playback, and SoundGrid Studio.
The new Waves MyFOH tablet app has been the #1 most-requested feature by live sound engineers using the Waves eMotion LV1 live mixer. MyFOH allows front-of-house engineers to control the LV1 over WiFi, from any iPad or Android tablet, and shape the live mix from anywhere in the venue. With MyFOH, engineers can evaluate their mix from the vantage point of the audience and adjust levels, panning and much more, for individual channels as well as groups, auxes, FX groups, DCAs and matrixes. MyFOH also allows to correct levels for front fills and delays, which are almost impossible to judge confidently from the static FOH position. If you are handling both FOH and monitor duties at the same show, you can also use MyFOH next to the musicians on stage (rather than attempting effective communication from across the venue), creating a more personal, nuanced and professional experience for all involved.
The new Waves mRecall is an iOS/Android app for quickly recalling scenes and snapshots created on Waves’ live systems and Waves’ Commercial Audio systems. Working over WiFi on both mobile phones and tablets, mRecall is a quick way to recall preprogrammed audio settings, both in live shows and in AV installations. In live shows, mRecall allows to remotely recall snapshots created on the Waves eMotion LV1 live mixer or the Waves SuperRack live plugin rack. On installed Waves Commercial Audio systems, mRecall allows end users to recall preprogrammed snapshots, without needing access to the equipment rack.
In addition, V13 features updates to Waves’ existing SoundGrid applications:
- The Waves SuperRack live plugin rack now supports up to four active and four redundant Waves SoundGrid servers, running together on one Waves SoundGrid live processing system. This allows live sound engineers to massively expand their processing power for live shows.
- The Waves eMotion LV1 live mixer now supports the aforementioned MyFOH and mRecall remote apps. The new V13 update also adds several more features requested by users, including new routing and channel selection options.
- All Waves SoundGrid applications, including the MyMon personal monitor mixing app and the SoundGrid QRec app for live recording and playback, feature additional bug fixes and performance improvements.
Waves Audio devotes major efforts and software development resources to ensure that Waves plugins and applications continue to enhance users’ workflow and remain compatible with all systems. Waves SoundGrid V13 is the latest in Waves’ ongoing updates, allowing engineers, musicians and all audio personnel to continuously focus on creating the best sound they possibly can, now and in the future.
