FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WAVES RELEASES WAVESLIVE MULTIRACK NATIVE

— Waves Audio changes the face of the live sound industry with the introduction of WavesLive MultiRack Native —

— One-of-a-kind software host is designed especially for live sound, making it perfect for concert, touring bands, club and house-of-worship applications —

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, December 1, 2009Waves Audio is now shipping WavesLive MultiRack Native, the first-ever software application designed to run Waves plug-ins with live analog and digital mixing consoles. A true breakthrough, MultiRack Native is a software host that lets FOH and Monitor engineers run multiple simultaneous instances of the same Native Waves plug-ins used in recording studios and mixing rooms the world over. Armed only with a laptop, an I/O box, MultiRack Native and Waves plug-ins, users now have the power to shape their live sound with unprecedented precision, and do away with rack after rack of heavy effects units. The world’s best-sounding reverbs, equalizers, compressors, limiters and delays are now at users’ fingertips, without the limitations of hardware, and at a fraction of the cost, making it perfect for concert, touring bands, club and house-of-worship applications.

WavesLive MultiRack Native features easy setup with advanced preset capabilities and an intuitive workflow which facilitates a smooth transition from traditional hardware-based systems to the live digital realm. There are four basic components in a MultiRack Native setup: Plug-ins, which process the audio, including compressors, EQs, delays, etc.; Racks (Virtual Racks, like hardware, hold multiple Waves plug-in processors); Snapshots (already familiar to some users as “scenes”), that store plug-in and Rack settings; and Sessions, which store the settings for all Waves plug-ins, Racks, and Snapshots, as well as information about the setup design and signal flow. Users can create up to 64 racks that host up to eight plug-ins each.

WavesLive MultiRack Native key features include:
- Allows users to take their studio sound to the stage and back again
- Complements hardware outboard gear
- Quick and simple setup
- A fraction of the cost of hardware
- Reduces the need for cartage of heavy rack-mounted devices
- Simple routing with less cabling
- Full snapshot automation with total recall — set and save presets and snapshots per song and song sections
- ASIO and Core Audio I/O compatible
- Windows 7 and Mac® OS X compatible

WavesLive MultiRack Native is now available from authorized Waves dealers and online. For more information, please visit www.waveslive.com.
