Waves Audio’s SoundGrid Rack for Venue enables live sound engineers to run Waves plug-ins directly within Avid’s Venue S6L mixing console with control from the console’s surface knobs and integration in the Venue software.

Waves Audio SoundGrid Rack for VenueEliminating the need for a computer host or an external network switch, SoundGrid Rack can load up to eight SoundGrid-compatible Waves plug-ins per instance. All standard Venue plug-in features apply, including Config and Show modes, delay compensation, snapshot automation and tactile control of plug-in parameters.

Up to 128 mono or 64 stereo SoundGrid Racks can be run within the S6L, each containing up to eight plug-ins. The included SoundGrid Inventory component (also available as a separate download from Waves Central) manages the SoundGrid network and allows monitoring of its status.
