DiGiCo and Waves Audio team up for DiGiGrid

At Winter NAMM 2013, Anaheim, DiGiCo along with its studio sound sister company Soundtracs and Waves Audio launched DiGiGrid - 'the perfect partnership of audio hardware and software'. From the studio to the stage and back again, today’s digital productions are getting more and more complex, with higher track counts, CPU-hungrier plugins and increasingly demanding real-time requirements – not to mention portability, expandability and connectivity issues. Waves, DiGiCo and Soundtracs have joined forces to create hardware and software processing solutions to address these needs with DiGiGrid, which enables users of Native DAWs, Pro Tools and MADI-enabled live and broadcast mixing consoles to have access to Waves SoundGrid audio networking and real-time processing. DiGiGrid offers a full line of SoundGrid I/Os, Pro Tools-to-SoundGrid I/Os and MADI-to-SoundGrid I/Os. DiGiGrid was showcased at Waves' booth at InfoComm 2013, Orlando, Florida. Waves introduces DiGiGrid at 135th AES, New York City, booth 2839.
In the studio, DiGiGrid systems provide the power and performance needed to meet the most taxing mixing challenges. DiGiGrid systems are expandable and designed for users of all levels, from budget-minded audio enthusiasts to full-fledged multi-studio facilities. And because they use Intel-based SoundGrid DSP Servers to perform audio processing, DiGiGrid systems ensure versatility and compatibility.
Live on stage, DiGiGrid MADI-to-SoundGrid interfaces enable users of any MADI-enabled console to take advantage of low-latency networking and processing, perfect for both FOH and monitor applications. Live processing and recording has never been easier, thanks to the flexibility and simplicity of DiGiGrid systems.
DiGiGrid systems were also showcased at ISE 2013 in Amsterdam and Prolight + Sound show 2013 in Frankfurt.
