Waves Ships Enhanced SoundGrid Studio

Latest software for real-time audio processing and networking is now available   28-May-20

Waves Audio is now shipping the new, enhanced version of its SoundGrid Studio software for real-time audio processing and networking. This is the story in their own words...

SoundGrid Studio is the software used to control a Waves SoundGrid®-powered system for real-time recording and monitoring, plugin DSP offload for mixing, and flexible audio networking.

SoundGrid allows producers, engineers and musicians to:

  • Record and monitor with plugins in real time, at ultra-low latency of only 0.8 ms, by combining SoundGrid Studio software with a SoundGrid audio interface and a SoundGrid DSP server.
  • Mix plugin-rich sessions, by offloading all plugin processing from your main computer to a SoundGrid DSP server.
  • Collaborate more easily with other producers and musicians, by easily connecting different computers, audio interfaces, hardware synths, and other studio devices in a flexible, scalable open system.  


The new SoundGrid Studio software includes significant updates to both the SoundGrid Studio control panel and the included eMotion ST studio mixer:

  • A new state-of-the-art Control Room section that allows you to toggle easily between multiple sources and multiple monitors.
  • New advanced headphone monitoring options, allowing you to create up to 16 personalized headphone mixes for musicians.
  • Newly added ability to stream audio between up to 14 audio interfaces, and to share the same audio interface between multiple computers.
  • Updated interface for both the SoundGrid Studio control panel and the eMotion ST mixer, with a new layered design, an updated patch bay, and more.
  • The ability to stream up to 128 plugin channels from the included StudioRack plugin chainer.
  • Full compatibility with the Waves Abbey Road Studio 3 and Nx plugins, for spatial 3D headphone monitoring.
  • Full compatibility with the latest V11 version of all Waves plugins.


SoundGrid Studio comes in four configurations: a free version with 8 channels of the eMotion ST mixer; and the option to upgrade to premium versions with 16, 32, and 64 channels.
