All Waves Cloud MX Audio Mixer packages come with cloud-licensed Waves eMo plugins — eMo D5 Dynamics, eMo F2 Filter, and eMo Q4 Equalizer — that form the mixer’s channel strip.

Operators may chain up to eight cloud-licensed plug-ins directly on any channel.

Audio capabilities may be expanded by upgrading to Cloud MX Audio Mixer Plus, with 11 extra cloud-licensed plug-ins such as the Primary Source Expander for automatic mic bleed elimination, the Renaissance Vox vocal compressor, the surgical F6 floating-band dynamic EQ, MaxxBass, the L2 UltraMaximizer and more. The Premium edition adds more than 150 cloud-licensed plug-ins, including the Dugan Speech plug-in for real-time automatic mixing of multiple mics.

The Mixer’s control options include support of up to four touchscreens, plus tactile mixing with the Waves FIT controller and/or Mackie/MIDI controllers.
