The Klark Teknik DN32-WSG expansion card allows Midas M32 and Behringer X32 console users to mix, record and play back multichannel audio using plug-ins hosted on Waves SoundGrid servers. DN32-WSG supports live use of processing tool chain from a studio environment.

Klark Teknik DN32-WSG expansion cardWaves plug-ins can be run anywhere on the SoundGrid network, either on dedicated SoundGrid servers or as native plug-ins on connected personal computers. Native processing offers the flexibility of using standard audio computers, while SoundGrid plug-in servers ensure minimal I/O latency, which is essential for live monitoring.

DN32-WSG offers full-duplex audio streaming for 32 I/O channels, with 48kHz or 44.1kHz sample rates and 24-bit resolution. Round-trip network latencies down to 0.8ms are possible, depending on complexity of the network infrastructure.

Once audio routes have been configured in a SoundGrid network using PC applications such as Waves MultiRack or StudioRack, the audio paths will be re-established at every startup automatically. There are no network specific settings to be configured in the mixing console. Just route your send signals to the card outs and return the processed signals where needed.

There are two ways of using external processing in Midas M32 and Behringer X32 mixing consoles. Up to six Channel Inserts can be assigned on Aux 1-6, when Aux outputs are in Insert mode.
Alternatively, up to four blocks of eight, or 32 external plug-ins can be inserted by routing all the input signals directly to the card outputs. All processed return signals are then routed back to the input/home by selecting Card 1-32.

The DN32-WSG comes bundled with Tracks Live multitrack recording software for SoundGrid systems, designed to capture live performances of any kind, from the smallest gig to the largest production. Tracks Live enables switching between stereo out and multi out modes to toggle between recording and virtual soundcheck. The automatic multichannel re-routing engine also adapts to any changes made on the fly.
