Waves Audio in Knoxville, Tenn., announces SoundGrid Connect, a new feature of the SoundGrid driver. With SoundGrid Connect, users can connect any ASIO/Core Audio-compatible audio interface to SoundGrid technology and dramatically boost the capacity of a system—for example, run hundreds of plug-ins at once; stream audio; record and mix from multiple computers and DAWs at the same time; and more.
SoundGrid Connect lets users add massive processing power to a system by connecting any ASIO/Core Audio interface to a SoundGrid DSP server and processing SoundGrid-compatible Waves and third-party plug-ins on the server instead of on a computer. By offloading plug-in processing to the server, users can smoothly run hundreds of plug-ins on their sessions and free up a computer’s CPU for other tasks.
SoundGrid Connect also allows users to connect any ASIO/Core Audio interface to the SoundGrid network, which lets them stream audio, record and mix from many different computers and DAWs at once using simple Ethernet connections.
Users who already have a SoundGrid I/O can also use SoundGrid Connect to expand a SoundGrid network and add to it any ASIO/Core Audio interface.
SoundGrid Connect is available free of charge to any owner of at least one Waves software product.
