Waves Audio is now shipping the Waves eMotion LV1 Live Mixer for front-of-house, monitor and broadcast engineers. eMotion LV1 is Windows/Mac 64-bit compatible and comes in three configurations: 64- ($1,149), 32- ($949) or 16 ($749) stereo/mono input channels. Engineers can control the mixer using hardware control surfaces and multi-touch devices ranging from four touchscreens to a single laptop or tablet.
eMotion LV1 uses the SoundGrid infrastructure for audio networking. It can be configured as a portable or stationary setup, and can connect to any SoundGrid-compatible I/O or server.
Each of the eMotion LV1 mixer’s channels has its own plug-in rack capable of running up to eight Waves and third-party plug-ins, enabling engineers to mix live with hundreds of instances of plug-ins, all running inside the mixer itself. All plug-in presets and chains saved in eMotion LV1 can be shared with the Waves MultiRack and StudioRack plug-in hosts, allowing engineers to move seamlessly between live and studio environments.
The mixer’s channel strip (standard EQ, filters and dynamics processing) is provided by Waves' eMo plug-ins: eMo D5 Dynamics, eMo F2 Filter and eMo Q4 Equalizer. All eMo plug-ins are designed for maximum clarity and efficiency in a live environment.
