Crest Audio has partnered with Waves to create the Tactus Digital Mixing System. The Tactus Digital Mixing System provides a simple, customizable touch-screen operating interface that puts all of the audio routing, processing and mixing tools within easy and immediate reach.
Designed to work with the new Waves eMotion Mixer for SoundGrid, the Tactus Digital Mixing System offers a full complement of professional features and allows the use of Waves audio processing plug-ins for live events.
The Tactus hardware is comprised of the Tactus.FOH, the audio processing core for the system, the Tactus.Stage, a 32-in/16-out remote stage box, and the Tactus.Control, a dedicated hardware control surface .
The modular capability of the Tactus Digital Mixing System, which interconnects via standard Gigabit Ethernet cabling and an internal Gigabit switch, allows multiple configurations in a range of channel counts to best suit each application.
The Tactus.FOH is powered by the Waves SoundGrid audio processing/networking platform, ensuring extremely low latency with precision audio processing.The Tactus.FOH frame provides 8 local microphone/line inputs and 8 line outputs, and serves as the audio signal processing engine.
The Tactus.Stage includes 32 microphone/line inputs and 16 line outputs. The digitally controlled high-quality mic preamps feature ultra-low input noise, high slew rate, very low THD, and 66dB adjustment range in 1dB steps to maximize dynamic range. An integrated gigabit Ethernet switch allows for easy networking. Users also benefit from the option of combining Tactus.Stage I/O interfaces for a total of 64 stereo inputs by 32 stereo outputs.
