WINTER NAMM SHOW, ANAHEIM, CA, January 18, 2010 – Waves Audio, a leading provider of digital signal processing software and hardware solutions, and DiGiCo, the UK-based manufacturer of some of the world’s most popular, successful and groundbreaking digital mixing consoles, have announced a technology agreement which sees the development of breakthrough products for the live sound industry.
The joint announcement was made at the Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, by Mick Olesh, Waves Executive VP, Sales and Marketing, DiGiCo Managing Director James Gordon and DiGiCo Marketing Director David Webster. Waves and DiGiCo have agreed to work together to integrate Waves new SoundGrid technology into DiGiCo’s single FPGA Stealth Digital Processing products for the live sound industry. Further details about this strategic alliance are to be unveiled during 2010.
Commenting on the agreement, Olesh stated, “DiGiCo has always been at the forefront of digital mixing technology. Its consoles have been acknowledged as an industry leader, and everyone at Waves is extremely excited to be able to work with its R&D team. We look forward to a close working relationship.”
“The arrival of Waves SoundGrid is a big step in the plug in world. Its impressive lack of latency and access to existing plug ins made it the only choice for DiGiCo,” added Gordon. “When you think of plug ins, you think of Waves. In the future, we hope that DiGiCo control will be the next name that comes to mind.” For more information, please visit http://www.waves.com.
