Guess what has just landed in Australia? The new and very cool DiGiGrid MGB and MGO’s! Unassuming yet very powerful. Check this out…
Compact and portable, the DiGiGrid MGB interface lets you plug any coaxial MADI-enabled device into the power of the Waves SoundGrid networking and processing platform. Record, process and playback up to 128 audio channels, using literally hundreds of Waves and third-party plugins, with super-low latency, clocking in at only 0.8 milliseconds! You can even record to two computers simultaneously: One for virtual sound check, the other for backup. So if you’re on the tour bus, in your hotel room, at the airport – wherever – you can quickly and conveniently setup your next show, using only your laptop.
With a DiGiGrid MGB MADI-to-SoundGrid interface, real-time low-latency networking and processing is only an Ethernet cable away.
In its most basic mode, connect the MGB straight to your laptop or desktop via single Cat5e or Cat6 cable. Install the driver and you can now record up to 128 channels through your computer’s 1GB Ethernet port, with simultaneous playback of 128 channels. The device just appears as a CORE or ASIO Soundgrid device in your favourite DAW software.
Add a SoundGrid DSP server via an SWI 1GB switch plus the Waves Multi-Rack SoundGrid host application, and now any MADI-compatible live or broadcast console has instant access to real-time low-latency processing.
Want to record to two PC’s at the same time? Easy. Connect the MGB or MGO to an SWI 1GB switch, then connect two PC’s to the switch. You’re now able to record up 128 channels of the same source to different computers simultaneously.
Does your application demand a higher level of audio quality? A simple configuration change switches the unit over to 96kHz, with 64 channels of recording and 64 channels of simultaneous playback.
And for MGO users who need optical fibre cable runs, simply upgrade either or both of the MGO’s standard dual mode transceivers to optional single mode transceivers.
