Waves Announces New eMotion LV1 Live Mixer Features and v11 Updates

LV1 V11

Waves Audio, the world’s leading developer of professional audio signal processing technologies and leading maker of audio plugins for mixing, music production, mastering, sound design, broadcast, post-production and live sound, announces eMotion LV1 v11, a new updated version of the innovative eMotion LV1 live software mixer, with major updates and user-requested new features, including the new MyMon Personal Monitor Mixing App.

Based on Waves SoundGrid® technology, the eMotion LV1 delivers the superior sound quality for which Waves is renowned, as well as a quick workflow needed in demanding environments. To offer unprecedented control over every aspect of your live sound, each of the mixer’s channels has its own plugin rack capable of running up to eight Waves and third-party plugins. Subsequently, you can mix live with hundreds of your favorite plugins, all running inside the mixer itself, adding the power and versatility of Waves plugins to the arsenals of engineers everywhere, while shrinking the form factor of a full mixing system down to a portable carry-on size.

This revolutionary digital mixing console for front-of-house, monitor and broadcast engineers has now been updated to v11, with new exciting features. These include Waves MyMon, a personal monitor mixing app for mobile devices, which communicates remotely with eMotion LV1 and gives musicians on stage direct control of their monitor mix: they can adjust input levels; mute and pan; apply post-mix EQ; and link channels to custom single-fader groups.

eMotion LV1 v11 also increases the aux and matrix channel-count of each of the LV1’s three configurations. The 64-channel LV1 now features 16 monitor auxes; the 32-channel LV1 now features 16 monitor auxes and 8 matrix mix busses; and the 16-channel LV1 now features 8 matrix mix busses.

In addition, eMotion LV1 v11 expands the mixer’s I/O sharing abilities within a Waves SoundGrid network: Now, computers, DAWs and hardware I/O devices can be shared between multiple eMotion LV1 systems. Other new features in eMotion LV1 v11 include improved store & recall of sessions, scenes and snapshots; tap tempo on main toolbar; full integration with Waves’ award-winning v11 plugins; and full compatibility with Windows 10 & macOS 10.15 Catalina.

The mixer’s channel strip – its standard EQ, filters and dynamics processing – is provided by Waves eMo plugins: eMo D5 Dynamics, eMo F2 Filter and eMo Q4 Equalizer, designed for maximum clarity and efficiency in a live environment. The eMotion LV1 also integrates smoothly with the Dugan Speech and Dugan Automixer plugins (purchased separately), which are easily accessible from each LV1 channel.

You can control eMotion LV1 using industry-standard hardware controllers, multi-touch screens and diverse portable devices, from four touchscreens to a single laptop or tablet. Whichever device you are using, the LV1 has the same intuitive workflow, with a user interface built for flexibility and speed. Waves eMotion LV1 uses the Waves SoundGrid infrastructure for audio networking. It can be configured as a portable or stationary setup and can connect to any SoundGrid-compatible I/O or server. This means you can easily carry your mixer with you and run it anytime, anywhere – at home, in your hotel room, on the tour bus, or at the live venue. This way you can have all the time you need to work on your sessions, whether offline or with full-on audio, and make sure you are 100% ready for your show.

With the Waves eMotion LV1 v11 update, engineers experience pristine audio quality, detailed control over the sound, quick and easy setup and operation, a minimal footprint and convenient portability.
