Waves Audio announces the upcoming release of the WSG-Y16 mini-YGDAI SoundGrid I/O card for Yamaha mixing consoles. Together with a Waves SoundGrid Server (SGS), a Control PC, and an authorized iLok with SoundGrid-compatible Waves plug-ins, the WSG-Y16 enables Yamaha consoles to process 16 channels of audio with Waves plug-ins. Users connect a SoundGrid-compatible PC to the mixing console, route a channel to a WSG-Y16 channel, and then process the channel signal with Waves plug-ins on the SoundGrid server. Additionally, the WSG-Y16 supports MIDI input, for remote plug-in control directly from the console or external control surface. Waves Audio SoundGrid technology gives users the ability to run large numbers of Waves' award-winning audio processors with low latency, using standard PCs via Ethernet, far surpassing the specs of dedicated DSP-based platforms.
