Waves SuperRack LiveBox M

Waves Audio, a developer of professional audio signal processing technologies and plugins, announces the addition of dedicated MADI-ready units to its new line of SuperRack LiveBox native live processing units. Waves’ SuperRack LiveBox enables access to the power of all your favorite studio-grade VST3 plugins, from Waves and all other manufacturers, all running natively in a simple and robust turnkey solution. The new SuperRack LiveBox MADI features unrivaled low latency, PSU redundancy, the reliable industry-standard SuperRack Performer audio plugin host, the Waves Live bundle with over 50 must-have plugins for state-of-the-art live mixing, and MADI connectivity - all in one 2U unit. The MADI I/O supports 128 channels: 64 MADI Coaxial & 64 MADI Optical. In addition, SuperRack LiveBox units with Dante connectivity, available for orders since earlier in 2024, are now shipping.

SuperRack LiveBox gives live sound engineers and creative artists access to all their favorite audio plugins, all running natively on a turnkey device that’s quick and easy to set up in any live or broadcast setting. LiveBox’s combination of hardware and software is carefully optimized to run plugins efficiently and reliably. Simply hook up the LiveBox to a console and start mixing - no complex setup needed. The inclusion of Dante and MADI connectivity options ensures that users are good to go in all popular live console setups. Optional dual power supply provides power redundancy for extra reliability in any setting.

The Waves SuperRack Performer plugin host included in SuperRack LiveBox is the same proven, rock-solid live plugin control software used by thousands of live sound engineers in shows and broadcasts of all sizes. With all the familiar features of SuperRack Performer in place, SuperRack LiveBox offers live and broadcast engineers convenient pinpoint control of all their VST3 plugins.

On this occasion, Waves is also releasing an updated version of SuperRack Performer software (both the version included in LiveBox, and the standalone software). This SuperRack Performer update includes Waves’ ProLink integration: a completely redesigned, forward-thinking protocol for integration with DiGiCo systems (LAWO coming soon as well). DiGiCo users will benefit from a faster, more powerful console integration of the SuperRack Performer system that includes session and snapshot integration, plugin control and tempo control.
