Or use the Proton server with a SoundGrid audio interface to record with plugins without latency.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWhen mixing live, use the Proton server with a SoundGrid audio interface and any compatible mixing console to process audio using Waves plugins at ultra-low latency. The Proton server is ideal for use with 32-channel live sound hardware consoles (via the SuperRack plugin rack), or with the 32-channel configuration of the Waves eMotion LV1 software mixer.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWith sleek industrial design for elegance and durability, the half-rack 1U slick aluminum casing can be easily mounted using rack ears or placed side-by-side with an additional half-rack 1U device within a rack mounting system. It can be paired with the Axis Proton Waves-optimized computer. Combine the two with the eMotion LV1 32-stereo-channel mixer to build the ultimate compact live mixing system for a 32-stereo-channel setup.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eSmall enough to fit in your backpack, you can easily take the Proton server with you and supercharge your mixing power anywhere you go.\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"custom-menu\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eGet more processing power for running Waves plugins\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eAffordable price and exceptional performance\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eNEW: Sleek industrial design\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUltra-low latency: as low as 0.8 milliseconds at 48 kHz\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eIntel® Celeron® CPU\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e4GB RAM\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e1 x 1GbE Ethernet ports\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e1 x HDMI port\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e2 x USB ports\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUse with any SoundGrid interface (including DiGiGrid I\/Os)\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUse with non-SoundGrid I\/Os (ASIO\/Core Audio) via SoundGrid Connect: See complete instructions\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eCan be racked in a 1U rack shelf accessory\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eFree 6-month warranty\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eTech Specs\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv data-name=\"tab-tech-specs\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv fa-style=\"arrow\"\u003e\n\u003cp id=\"venue-first\" hash-target=\"venue-first\" collapse-target=\"collapsible-1\" collapse-dv=\"dv-collapsible-1\"\u003eSuperRack Benchmarks\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBenchmarks listed as per devices sold prior to Feb 2022.

Or use the Proton server with a SoundGrid audio interface to record with plugins without latency.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWhen mixing live, use the Proton server with a SoundGrid audio interface and any compatible mixing console to process audio using Waves plugins at ultra-low latency. The Proton server is ideal for use with 32-channel live sound hardware consoles (via the SuperRack plugin rack), or with the 32-channel configuration of the Waves eMotion LV1 software mixer.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWith sleek industrial design for elegance and durability, the half-rack 1U slick aluminum casing can be easily mounted using rack ears or placed side-by-side with an additional half-rack 1U device within a rack mounting system. It can be paired with the Axis Proton Waves-optimized computer. Combine the two with the eMotion LV1 32-stereo-channel mixer to build the ultimate compact live mixing system for a 32-stereo-channel setup.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eSmall enough to fit in your backpack, you can easily take the Proton server with you and supercharge your mixing power anywhere you go.\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"custom-menu\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eGet more processing power for running Waves plugins\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eAffordable price and exceptional performance\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eNEW: Sleek industrial design\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUltra-low latency: as low as 0.8 milliseconds at 48 kHz\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eIntel® Celeron® CPU\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e4GB RAM\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e1 x 1GbE Ethernet ports\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e1 x HDMI port\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e2 x USB ports\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUse with any SoundGrid interface (including DiGiGrid I\/Os)\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUse with non-SoundGrid I\/Os (ASIO\/Core Audio) via SoundGrid Connect: See complete instructions\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eCan be racked in a 1U rack shelf accessory\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eFree 6-month warranty\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eTech Specs\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv data-name=\"tab-tech-specs\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv fa-style=\"arrow\"\u003e\n\u003cp id=\"venue-first\" hash-target=\"venue-first\" collapse-target=\"collapsible-1\" collapse-dv=\"dv-collapsible-1\"\u003eSuperRack Benchmarks\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBenchmarks listed as per devices sold prior to Feb 2022.

Waves | Proton SoundGrid Server

Product Description
$849.00
Maximum quantity available reached.

Waves' most affordable DSP server yet, the Proton SoundGrid Server takes the load off your computer and gives you more plugin processing power when mixing in the studio or live.

In the studio, use the Proton server with the audio interface and DAW you already have in order to free up your computer’s CPU and offload plugin processing to the server. Or use the Proton server with a SoundGrid audio interface to record with plugins without latency.

When mixing live, use the Proton server with a SoundGrid audio interface and any compatible mixing console to process audio using Waves plugins at ultra-low latency. The Proton server is ideal for use with 32-channel live sound hardware consoles (via the SuperRack plugin rack), or with the 32-channel configuration of the Waves eMotion LV1 software mixer.

With sleek industrial design for elegance and durability, the half-rack 1U slick aluminum casing can be easily mounted using rack ears or placed side-by-side with an additional half-rack 1U device within a rack mounting system. It can be paired with the Axis Proton Waves-optimized computer. Combine the two with the eMotion LV1 32-stereo-channel mixer to build the ultimate compact live mixing system for a 32-stereo-channel setup.

Small enough to fit in your backpack, you can easily take the Proton server with you and supercharge your mixing power anywhere you go.
