*DiGiGrid, a collaboration between Waves and DiGiCo. Following implementation of Waves SoundGrid® for the DiGiCo SD consoles, DiGiCo recognized the potential and created SoundGrid-based studio hardware. In addition to integrated networking capabilities, upcoming DiGiGrid studio solutions will include a full line of I/Os with world-class converters, pre-amps, headphone amplification, built-in DSP Servers and network switches. With solutions for users of Native DAWs, Pro Tools and MADI-enabled consoles.

*The compact and portable DiGiGrid MGB coaxial and MGO optical MADI interfaces let you plug any MADI-enabled device into the power of the Waves SoundGrid networking and processing platform. Record, process and play back 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 soundcheck, 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 variety of user-adjustable controls including Tape Speed, Bias, Noise, Saturation, Wow and Flutter, the Waves: Abbey Road J37 faithfully recreates the inimitable sonic signature of the original machine. In addition to the J37 itself, three exclusive oxide tape formulas have been modeled.
