At the Winter NAMM show in Anaheim Calif., Waves Audio, a leading provider of audio DSP solutions, and DiGiCo, a UK-based manufacturer of groundbreaking digital mixing consoles and FPGA designs, announced a technology agreement. Waves’ Executive VP, Sales and Marketing, Mick Olesh, DiGiCo Managing Director James Gordon and DiGiCo Marketing Director David Webster made the joint announcement.
Waves and DiGiCo have agreed to work together to integrate Waves’ new SoundGrid technology into DiGiCo’s single FPGA Stealth Digital Processing products for the live sound industry. Both companies state that further details about this strategic alliance are to be unveiled over 2010.
Commenting on the agreement, Olesh states, “DiGiCo has always been on the forefront in digital mixing technology. Their consoles have been acknowledged as an industry leader, and everyone at Waves is extremely excited to be able to work with their R&D team. We look forward to a close working relationship.”
“The arrival of Waves’ Sound Grid is a big step in the plug-in world. Its impressive lack of latency and access to existing plug-ins made it the only choice for DiGiCo,” adds DiGiCo managing director James Gordon. “When you think of plug-ins, you think of Waves. In the future, we hope that DiGiCo control will be the next name that comes to mind.”
