Allen & Heath has expanded its range networking cards with the addition of a Waves SoundGrid option, providing any SQ mixer with a 64x64 96kHz or 48kHz interface to a Waves SoundGrid network using the I/O port.

Allen & Heath SoundGrid SQ cardThe Waves card can be installed in any SQ mixer for Waves plug-in processing, multitrack recording (96kHz or 48kHz), virtual soundcheck and audio distribution applications.

Waves SoundGrid is an Audio-over-Ethernet protocol developed by Waves for real-time professional audio applications. The card also enables the use of existing Waves plug-ins at a very low latency, using standard Gigabit Ethernet networks rather than a USB connection.

‘Waves SoundGrid has been a very popular option among our dLive users, with many systems on tour deploying a Waves card on recording duties,’ says Allen & Heath Head of Product, Nicola Beretta. ‘Since the launch of SQ we’ve received requests for the same technology to be made available here and following the release of our Dante and SLink cards, we’re very happy to tick another box in the list of protocols and standards SQ supports.’

The SQ Waves card is shipping now, with a recommended retail price of US$699.
