New Waves SoundGrid Extreme Server-C DSP Server

by Waves
Original price $2,499.00
Current price $1,999.00

Updated with 9th-generation Intel® Core Coffee Lake i7 8 Core CPU, this powerful yet light and compact DSP unit can effortlessly process hundreds of SoundGrid-compatible plugins in real time, live or in the studio — taking only half the width of a standard rack.

The SoundGrid Extreme Server-C allows you to mix live shows or track overdubs in the studio with real-time plugin processing. This is possible thanks to its ultra-low latency: as low as 0.8 ms at 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96 kHz.

With a robust 2U chassis, Extreme Server-C is only half the width of a standard 19-inch rack. You can rack-mount one server using rack ears, or double up for redundancy and mount two units side-by-side using a rack shelf.

The Extreme Server-C fits right inside your carry-on, so you can easily take your mixing to the extreme wherever you go.
