FOH Staff • New Gear • October 22, 2019

At AES 2019, Waves Audio launched the eMotion LV1 Proton 16-Channel Live Mixing System. Priced under $5,000, this is Waves’ most affordable complete live mixing system, ideal for portable and smaller-venue 16-channel live setups that aspire to deliver pristine world-class sound quality. This complete system includes the eMotion LV1 16-channel live software mixer, a SoundStudio STG-1608 SoundGrid-compatible stagebox, a SoundGrid Proton server, the Axis Proton Waves-optimized computer, a 24-inch Dell touch screen, a 1U rack shelf, an 8-port network switch and network cables, plus three plug-ins specifically designed and optimized for live sound: eMo F2 Filter, eMo D5 Dynamics and eMo Q4 Equalizer.

The touch-optimized eMotion LV1 software mixer features 16 mono/stereo channels, each with a plug-in rack that can host up to eight SoundGrid-compatible plug-ins for real-time processing. The included SoundStudio STG-1608 is a sturdy SoundGrid stage box, featuring 16 mic/line inputs with high-end preamps that can be controlled directly from the LV1 mixer.

All audio coming from the stage and through the plug-ins is processed on the included super-compact SoundGrid Proton server. Send processed audio out to the P.A. system and back to the stage via eight line outputs at lightning speed: Only 0.8 ms at 48 kHz.

For rock-solid stability, the Axis Proton computer is optimized to handle eMotion LV1’s processing power and perform reliably in the most challenging environments. It features an Intel Celeron processor, 4 GB of DDR4 RAM, one HDMI port, one display port, three USB ports, and a rugged 1U half-rack chassis.

Complete with a 24-inch Dell touch screen, an eight-port SoundGrid switch, CAT6 Ethernet cables, and a 1U rack shelf, this combo gives you everything you need to run 16-channel live shows with big, pristine, studio-grade sound at an affordable price.
