The SoundGrid Server One-C provides ultra-low latency

Several new SoundGrid products have been introduced from Waves Audio, including the SoundGrid Server One-C, SoundGrid Extreme Server-C and the Sound Grid Mobile Server. The Extreme Server-C and Server One-C both handle real-time processing for SoundGrid-compatible plug-ins, and are able to process hundreds of plug-ins.

Both servers are stated to provide ultra-low latency: as low as 0.8ms at 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz and 96kHz. With a robust 2U chassis, users can rackmount one server using rack ears, or double up for redundancy and mount two units side-by-side using a rack shelf. Two units differ in the CPU they house: the SoundGrid Server One-C has an Intel Skylake i5 processor, while the SoundGrid Extreme Server-C packs a more powerful Intel Skylake i7.

The smaller SoundGrid Mobile Server has an Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of RAM, making it suitable to power plug-ins in small live shows as well as in the studio, while latency is the same 0.8ms at 44.1–96kHz. Paired with a SoundGrid audio interface, the Mobile server allows users to record and monitor through plug-ins in real-time. With a non-SoundGrid interface, it takes the plug-in processing load off the computer during mixing and editing sessions.


Away from hardware, two new processing plug-ins have been announced. Said to be the first plug-in of its kind, CLA MixHub captures the console workflow and analogue sound of Chris Lord-Alge’s mixes. Users can mix up to 64 tracks from the same plug-in window, using channel strips modelled from CLA’s personal console. Also new is Sibilance, a transparent vocal de-esser powered by the manufacturer’s Organic ReSynthesis technology. Waves says that unlike most de-essers, which act like narrow-band compressors, the Waves Sibilance plug-in uses Organic ReSynthesis spectral filters to identify undesirable bursts of sibilant energy, then separates the nuances of sibilance from the vocal signal, leaving the rest of the signal untouched.
