  • eMotion LV1 16 Stereo Channels - Live Mixer Software (Download)

    Waves eMotion LV1 16 Stereo Channels is a digital software mixer with 16 stereo/mono input channels designed for front-of-house, foldback, and broadcast live sound mixing applications. It employs the SoundGrid infrastructure for audio networking and a 32-bit floating point mix engine to deliver pristine audio at sample rates up to 96 kHz and with latency as low as 0.8 ms, along with an intuitive, flexible, and fast workflow, ideal for demanding live environments.

    eMotion LV1 gives you precise control over your live sound mixing with eight aux channels (stereo/mono), L/R panning, and up to eight SoundGrid-compatible plug-ins directly on each channel (Waves or third-party plug-ins). All saved plug-in presets and chains can be shared with the Waves MultiRack and StudioRack plug-in hosts, enabling you to move seamlessly between live and studio environments.

    The main mixer window gives you the most important info you need at a glance including all channel inputs and parameters, routing, plug-in inserts, and more. Additional windows provide more detailed views. You can use the channel window for focused control of your plug-ins, including a Touch-and-Slide slider for quick and easy control of all plug-in parameters.

    The software can be configured as a portable or stationary setup, and can connect to any SoundGrid-compatible I/O or server, allowing you to work on your sessions online or offline, at home, in your hotel room, on the tour bus, or at the live venue.

    eMotion LV1 provides support for up to four multitouch screens, as well as diverse industry-standard control surfaces. It ships with the eMo D5 Dynamics, eMo F2 Filter, eMo Generator, and eMo Q4 Equalizer plug-ins, optimized for live environments.

    Note: Purchase includes software only. For online operation, eMotion LV1 must be connected to a SoundGrid I/O and a SoundGrid server (both available separately).
