Waves Audio, a leading provider of digital signal processing solutions, introduces the SoundGrid® Extreme Server-C, a plugin processing beast for the studio and live. Compact and powerful, light and robust, this DSP unit can effortlessly process hundreds of SoundGrid-compatible plugins in real time, live or in the studio – taking only half the width of a standard rack.
The Waves SoundGrid Extreme Server-C allows you to mix live shows or track overdubs in the studio with real-time plugin processing. This is possible thanks to its ultra-low latency: as low as 0.8 ms at 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96 kHz. With a robust 2U chassis, the Extreme Server-C is only half the width of a standard 19-inch rack. You can rack-mount one server using rack ears, or double up for redundancy and mount two units side-by-side using a rack shelf. Additionally, the Extreme Server-C fits right inside your carry-on, so you can easily take your mixing to the extreme wherever you go.
