— Waves Audio live sound division, WavesLive, begins ongoing hands-on live sound training series —
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, July 1, 2013 — Waves Audio, the leading provider of audio DSP solutions for the professional, live sound, broadcast and consumer electronics markets, recently held an event – the first in a planned series from WavesLive, the live sound division of the company – featuring mixing workshops at Maryland Sound International (MSI), one of the world’s leading production firms. FOH engineers Greg Price (Ozzy Osbourne) and Ken “Pooch” Van Druten (Linkin Park) were on hand, showing local live sound, monitor and broadcast engineers how to integrate Waves plugins into live mixing consoles. Price and Van Druten presented an up-close look at plugin “problem-solvers” and a demonstration of how they use and benefit from using Waves plugins in their live mixing duties.
The presentation was followed by an open Q&A session, with the opportunity for hands-on mixing using various consoles and Waves plugins. Waves Product Specialists Luke Smith, Johnny Mann, Michael Pearson-Adams and Noam Raz were also on the floor, providing in-depth information on Waves plugins and the Waves SoundGrid® audio networking and processing platform. This included a presentation of DiGiGrid MGO and MGB MADI-to-SoundGrid interfaces on a Soundcraft Vi4 console, which showed playback of multitrack audio and real-time low-latency processing (running multiple plugins) via the MultiRack SoundGrid plugin host.
WavesLive is pleased to sponsor these events, which provide the opportunity for attendees to experience the world of live mixing with Waves plugins and to receive tips and tricks directly from mixing legends Price and Van Druten.
“Maryland Sound was proud to host the latest Waves event,” commented Bob Goldstein, owner of Maryland Sound. “MSI has a long history of cutting-edge technology married to the best-sounding gear. Our clients know that we are concerned about the end user. Your audience matters at MSI, and that’s why hosting this event partnered with an industry leader like Waves made for a very successful day.”
