Waves Audio SoundGrid® Platform Grows in Popularity, Opens Up to Third-Party Plugin Developers
NAMM SHOW, ANAHEIM, CA, January 24, 2013 — In late 2010, Waves Audio (booth 6824) introduced its SoundGrid® platform, which offers Waves Audio-over-Ethernet networking and processing for low-latency real-time professional audio applications. Rapidly growing in popularity since its release, the SoundGrid platform now is used to provide live sound processing for many of the biggest names in entertainment, including Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen, Maroon 5, Ozzy Osbourne and many more. Beyond the world of live sound, SoundGrid is scheduled for full compliance with the IEEE’s latest AVB (Audio Video Bridge), in addition to Waves AEB (Audio Exclusive Broadcast) protocols.
Waves recently celebrated the sale of their one thousandth SoundGrid DSP Server. Simultaneously, Waves has announced that it is releasing its API (application programming interface) for third-party developers. This means that in the very near future, Waves SoundGrid platform will support not only Waves plugins, but plugins from other developers as well, beginning with those associated with Plugin Alliance. Users will benefit from SoundGrid’s unparalleled power and performance over an ever-expanding range of professional audio tools.
"We are excited to see what Waves has developed with the SoundGrid technology, and will be looking into porting some of our real-time tools for SoundGrid in 2013", says Dirk Ulrich, CEO of Plugin Alliance USA and Brainworx Germany.
