Waves Audio has integrated Waves MultiRack and Waves plugins in the KN-DSP100 Kramer Network Server from pro AV firm Kramer Electronics
Waves MultiRack is a software host used by FOH and monitor engineers to run multiple simultaneous instances of the same award-winning plugins used in recording studios and mixing rooms the world over.
The Kramer Network Server, with Kramer Network and DSP functionality for large-scale audio deployments, provides DSP-over-IP and enables simultaneous processing of 64 of its more than 1000 input channels – and distribution to over 1000 outputs. The unit is fully compatible with any Dante audio signal and provides auto-detection of all Kramer devices and their functionality. The KN-DSP100’s processing is powered by Waves and seamlessly integrates with all standard IT infrastructures.
With Waves MultiRack and plugins now integrated, the KN-DSP100 brings the same tools that live sound engineers rely upon daily to AV professionals at large-scale system deployments such as airports, hotels, courtrooms and hospitals, providing seamless processing of up to 64 channels over a Dante network. Bundled with top Waves plugins – the WNS Noise Suppressor, GEQ Graphic Equalizer, Q10 Graphic Equalizer, C1 Compressor, MaxxVolume, L1 Ultramaximizer, Renaissance Compressor, X-FDBK, MaxxBass, OneKnob Louder, OneKnob Phatter and the eMo Generator – the KN-DSP100 covers a vast array of beneficial processing needs.
“As a music producer and sound engineer, I realise the significance of audio in our everyday lives. From that understanding, the KN-DSP100 was born,” said Yuval Kramer, director of audio at Kramer.
“That’s why partnering with Waves, a powerhouse in professional audio who share this view, seemed natural. KN-DSP100 marks the beginning of an audio revolution in the pro-AV industry,” added Kramer.
Mick Olesh, Waves EVP of sales & marketing, said: “We are pleased to collaborate with Kramer and to have our technology power the KN-DSP100. With our software at the core of its processing capabilities, it significantly enhances its user’s workflow and overall sound shaping and control.”
