Waves Audio Adds MOTU Support to Its BR1 AVB-to-SoundGrid Bridge, Enabling Waves’ Real-Time Plugin Processing in MOTU-Based AVB Networks




Waves Audio, a leading developer of professional audio signal processing technologies and leading maker of audio plugins for mixing, music production, mastering, sound design, broadcast, post-production and live sound, announced the addition of MOTU support to its Waves SoundGrid BR1, a device bridging AVB and Waves SoundGrid networks. This now enables Waves real-time plugin processing on any MOTU-based AVB network with MOTU’s AVB-enabled audio interfaces.

The Waves SoundGrid BR1 is an AVB-to-SoundGrid bridge that adds real-time audio processing capabilities to AVB networks and improved sound quality in AVB setups. Until now, the Waves SoundGrid BR1 was compatible with PreSonus AVB networks only. Now, BR1 is compatible with MOTU AVB systems.

Waves SoundGrid BR1 allows to integrate the power of Waves’ plugins into the AVB network. This rack-mountable unit enables streaming up to 64 audio channels between Waves SoundGrid and AVB protocols. It provides improved synchronization, audio processing at ultra-low latency, and reliability for switched Ethernet networks.

Suited for studio or live use, SoundGrid is an audio protocol for real-time audio processing and networking at near-zero latency. It gives you access to an impressive catalog of audio plugins that will enhance your sound production. From solving audio issues to adding vibe and character, introducing Waves plugins to your network will give your sound clarity, color and impact.

Waves SoundGrid BR1 features:

  • Up to 64 SoundGrid audio channels
  • Up to 64 AVB channels
  • Supported sample rates: 44.1-96 kHz (MOTU)
  • Clock source: SoundGrid/AVB
  • 1U half-rack (rack ears included)
  • Now supports MOTU and PreSonus AVB networks

Jim Cooper, MOTU Director of Marketing, comments, “As we did with Thunderbolt and other connectivity standards over the years, MOTU spearheaded the widespread adoption of AVB networking technology in the pro audio industry with a complete line of groundbreaking AVB-equipped audio interfaces, such as our popular 16A, 828es and 8pre-es models. We are thrilled that Waves has brought their renowned processing to MOTU’s high-performance, extremely low-latency AVB ecosystem.”

Mick Olesh, Waves EVP of Sales and Marketing, adds, “Waves is delighted to collaborate with MOTU, extending our SoundGrid technology for real-time audio processing and networking to now accommodate MOTU’s line of AVB audio interfaces. This cooperation continues Waves’ mission to improve sound quality in any environment, and our commitment to empower users with smooth operational single networks, for easy and stable networking via audio-over-Ethernet.”
