Lawo and Waves are premiering the integration of Waves SoundGrid servers with Lawo mc² consoles at this year’s InfoComm 2015 show in Orlando. As a result, the Lawo mc²36 console now provides extensive real-time signal processing in addition to its internal processing engine.
The new Lawo mc²36 mixing console with the integration of SoundGrid is being showcased at InfoComm at the Technolgies for Worship Pavilion, booth 6878, and six additional consoles are being provided as part of the InfoComm Training Center.
The system gives operators access to Waves’ comprehensive plug-in library, allowing them to control reverbs, multi-tap delays, graphic equalizers and multiband compressors directly via the console’s keyboard and touch screen. No additional monitors or controls are needed, which results in a clean working space and less external hardware. All plug-in settings can be stored and recalled with the console’s snapshots.
Mick Olesh, Waves EVP sales & marketing, states: “Waves is delighted to collaborate with Lawo and is pleased to give their users easy access to Waves plug-ins on Lawo consoles. This cooperation with Lawo realizes our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with the freedom to use Waves plug-ins in all settings and environments.”
“The cooperation with Waves is very fruitful and also extremely enjoyable. Both companies are very focused and so our R&D teams were able to achieve the integration of Waves plug-ins with our consoles in very short time”, adds Christian Struck, senior product manager, audio production, Lawo. “Lawo mc² consoles are audio precision tools, and the Waves integration gives our customers access to Waves’ comprehensive plug-in collection. This is a perfect complement to our system, especially with regards to live and install sound applications.”
mc²36 consoles are designed for live, install and broadcast applications. Available configurations include 16, 24 and 40 fader models, all with built-in DSP and I/O that can be expanded with several stagebox configurations.
All consoles also include built-in AutoMix, dynamics processing, loudness metering, and snapshots with external offline and configuration control options, including remote connection of PCs, tablets or laptops to manage the setup and mix process. Designed to work in an IP-based environment, the consoles come equipped with the latest RAVENNA audio-over-IP technology as well as full support for AES67.
