Waves DiGiGrid Modular Products for Audio Recording


The renowned plug-in company Waves, and digital console manufacturer DiGiCo, have teamed up to craft a modular solution for tying together headphone amplifiers, audio interfaces of various channel configurations, and fixed Ethernet power sources. Indeed, if you’re looking for any of the aforementioned items, you should really check out these products, which integrate with each other seamlessly by means of an onboard Cat5 SoundGrid network port.

The DigiGrid M is a two-channel recording interface with simultaneous monitoring and recording capabilities, 48V phantom power, an onboard high-pass filter, and an analog control path. The D module is similar in functionality but delivers four inputs, six outputs, and 96 kHz support. Both interfaces can be networked up to 75 meters apart and can even connect to multiple DAWs and computers at the same time.

The Q is a module headphone amplifier with 1/4" and 1/8" (3.5mm) outputs, an XLR connection carrying AES/EBU digital signal, and Bluetooth capability. It’s able to accommodate 600-Ohms headphones while simultaneously improving the fidelity of your computer’s built-in headphone output.

Both the interfaces and the headphone amplifier sport their own power twist-lock 12 VDC supply; however, utilizing Power over Ethernet (PoE), you can hook all of these items into the DiGiGrid S and, thus, eliminate the need for overstuffed surge protectors. Check one out, or try them all!
