Waves wants you to ditch the mouse and get more involved with your plug-ins, with Waves SuperRack. Designed for FOH technicians and broadcast engineers, SuperRack is the next generation of MultiRack, a virtual platform that incorporates plug-ins into mixing consoles. Waves have designed this platform with a touch screen that is multi-touch friendly, getting users more involved in the mix in realtime.
SuperRack features improved workflows, allowing up to four screens to enhance flexibility in mixing, as well as 128 audio channels, with near zero-latency. It provides for quick access for up to 12 plug-ins per snapshot via the ‘Hot Plugins’ panel. A Touch & Slide fader controls parameters for plug-ins, for easy tweaking on the go, and MIDI mapping for any external controllers you may have. The ‘Linking’ function gives you the power to adjust multiple racks simultaneously.
The platform operates in a SoundGrid Audio-over-Ethernet network, processing the audio on a dedicated SoundGrid DSP server. This is designed to move the processing from a host computer to an external DSP server, guaranteed to reduce CPU and minimize latency. You can configure the system and monitor the network and devices to keep an eye on things where necessary.
Waves SuperRack is now available to order and costs $599. A demo version is available from Waves should you wish to try it out before purchase.
