Waves Audio Plugins And MaxxBCL Hardware Utilized At Montreux Jazz Festival
+- Print Email Share RSS RSS

Held each July in Switzerland, the Montreux Jazz Festival is one of the world’s most famous annual music festivals, hosting top talent in jazz, blues, rock, pop, world music and more.

This year’s festival was bigger than ever, and world-class sound was the rule, thanks to expert sound engineers, great equipment and digital signal processing from Waves Audio.

DiGiCo consoles, coupled with Waves plugins and Waves MaxxBCL hardware, provided the ultimate sonic experience for the audience and indispensible solutions for resident and visiting live engineers.

Bernard Natier worked as resident front-of-house engineer at the festival’s Stravinsky Hall venue. 

“The Waves MaxxBCL was connected permanently to the FOH feeds in Stravinsky Hall,” he recalls. “The visiting engineers had an excellent experience with it. MaxxBCL proved itself in keeping control of the overall level and dynamics. The ‘low end’ management was effectively very soft, efficient and discrete. As mastering tools for live situations, Waves tools are top.”

Jose Gaudin served as FOH at the Jazz LAB venue. He added, “I absolutely love SoundGrid’s capability to work in real time and add plugins on the fly with no audio interruption. There are a lot of great Waves plugins like the C4 Multiband Compressor and the C6 Multiband Compressor that make it easy to achieve the sound you want.

“InPhase is a great tool that gives the touring engineer much more control than polarity or delay. And Waves H-Comp Hybrid Compressor and H-Delay Hybrid Delay are very innovative.”
