Waves Audio is now shipping WavesLive MultiRack Native, the first-ever software application designed to run Waves plug-ins with live analog and digital mixing consoles. A true breakthrough, MultiRack Native is a software host that lets FOH and Monitor engineers run multiple simultaneous instances of the same Native Waves plug-ins used in recording studios and mixing rooms the world over. Armed only with a laptop, an I/O box, MultiRack Native and Waves plug-ins, users now have the power to shape their live sound with unprecedented precision, and do away with rack after rack of heavy effects units. The world's best-sounding reverbs, equalizers, compressors, limiters and delays are now at users' fingertips, without the limitations of hardware, and at a fraction of the cost, making it perfect for concert, touring bands, club and house-of-worship applications. WavesLive MultiRack Native features easy setup with advanced preset capabilities and an intuitive workflow which facilitates a smooth transition from traditional hardware-based systems to the live digital realm. There are four basic components in a MultiRack Native setup: Plug-ins, which process the audio, including compressors, EQs, delays, etc.; Racks (Virtual Racks, like hardware, hold multiple Waves plug-in processors); Snapshots (already familiar to some users as "scenes"), that store plug-in and Rack settings; and Sessions, which store the settings for all Waves plug-ins, Racks, and Snapshots, as well as information about the setup design and signal flow. Users can create up to 64 racks that host up to eight plug-ins each. WavesLive MultiRack Native key features include:
  • Allows users to take their studio sound to the stage and back again
  • Complements hardware outboard gear
  • Quick and simple setup
  • A fraction of the cost of hardware
  • Reduces the need for cartage of heavy rack-mounted devices
  • Simple routing with less cabling
  • Full snapshot automation with total recall—set and save presets and snapshots per song and song sections
  • ASIO and Core Audio I/O compatible
  • Windows 7 and Mac¿¿ OS X compatible
