Waves MRSG overview

  • 1Description

Waves MultiRack SoundGrid is software that enables you to use Waves plug-ins and some third-party plug-ins in a concert setting. It allows you to run plug-ins at latencies low enough to meet the demanding needs of front-of-house audio engineers in live-sound scenarios.

Essentially, the software behaves like a hardware rack, letting you use effects and processors in mono, stereo, or mono-to-stereo configurations. You can insert such effects directly onto a track, run them in parallel, or even side-chain the effect of one track to another’s output. In MultiRack, each rack can house up to eight plug-ins, and you can use up to 64 software racks, with 128 channels of I/O, at any one time.

Where MultiRack excels is in giving you the benefits of well-regarded software in a live-sound context. Instead of necessitating space-consuming, often-expensive hardware with all the maintenance such a system would necessitate, MultiRack enables you to access revered Waves plug-ins for your live gig. With such a setup comes faster setup times as well as instant recall of effects for more efficiency in these mission-critical situations.

Waves MultiRack SoundGrid comes with a native license, so you can run it from your laptop and interface (so long as these devices support ASIO or Core Audio drivers). In that scenario, however, you’re a bit hamstrung by the CPU limit of your particular computer. When paired with a SoundGrid server, you’ll have more processing power at your disposal, and more leeway to load more plug-ins.

Waves MultiRack requires proprietary hardware to operate with consoles, but such hardware exists for Yamaha, Allen & Heath, DigiCo, and MADI-enabled consoles. Once all the pieces to the puzzle are procured, setup is relatively straightforward, giving you plenty of time for mixing and balancing the sound of the gig. 

Note: Please note: To run this software in SoundGrid mode, you must have both a SoundGrid server and a SoundGrid-enabled interface.
