Roland’s Professional A/V Division has released the XI-WSG Waves SoundGrid Expansion Card, expanding the system possibilities of its M-5000 Series consoles.

Roland XI-WSG Waves SoundGrid Expansion CardTaking advantage of Waves’ SoundGrid networking, the XI-WSG has three ports for connection to Waves SoundGrid Servers, allowing low-latency, redundant audio connection and direct connection to a PC for MultiRack SoundGrid control without the need for an external network hub. The XI-WSG accommodates 64 inputs and 64 outputs for integrating Waves’ high-precision plug-in processing, multitrack recording and playback with an M-5000 Series Console.

‘The XI-WSG Waves SoundGrid Expansion Card gives M-5000 users the ability to use the incredible collection of Waves plug-ins that many audio professionals find indispensable and further builds the M-5000’s reputation as the most complete integrated live audio system available,’ says Roland VP of Professional A/V, Christian Delfino. ‘The M-5000’s OHRCA platform takes the guesswork out of live audio system integration, seamlessly integrating 128 channels of configurable audio mixing with a wide range of digital snake options, 40-channel customisable M-48 Personal Mixers, stand-alone multichannel hardware recording with virtual rehearsal, and now our fourth XI Series Expansion Card, which adds direct Waves SoundGrid integration alongside the Dante, Madi and REAC options already available.’

‘We are excited to join forces with Roland, enabling the use of Waves compressors, EQs, reverbs, delays and other audio plug-ins directly from a Roland M-5000 live sound console,’ says Mick Olesh, Waves EVP of Sales & Marketing. ‘Used in leading recording studios, mixing rooms and mastering houses the world over, Waves’ industry-standard plug-ins are now at your fingertips behind your Roland FOH or monitor desk.’
