Waves DigiGrid IOC

The Waves DiGiGrid IOC Control Room I/O for SoundGrid Systems is the 'Swiss Army Knife' of the DiGiGrid range, providing a multitude of valuable I/O capabilities needed either in the studio control room, or at the Front Of House position for a system running Waves eMotion LV1. Make sure that you leave a place for the IOC in your DiGiGrid system!

Perfect for the control room, the DiGiGrid IOC audio interface offers a range of connectivity options, including 2 mic/line inputs with broadcast-grade preamps, 8 line inputs/outputs, and 16 AES and ADAT inputs/outputs, plus two powerful headphone outputs. With the IOC and a dedicated SoundGrid DSP server on your network, you will be able to run up to hundreds of SoundGrid-compatible Waves and third-party plugins, all fully integrated within your DAW of choice. Plug into the SoundGrid network using a single Ethernet cable, and the IOC will open up a world of real-time tracking, mixing and monitoring, with super-low latency of only 0.8 milliseconds. With the DiGiGrid IOC and a SoundGrid DSP server, you can run hundreds of SoundGrid-compatible plugins from Waves and other developers, all fully integrated within your DAW.

About DiGiGrid
DiGiGrid audio interfaces give you the freedom to connect all your DAWs and hardware devices quickly and easily, and the power to run up to hundreds of plugins in real time. Waves, the world’s leading developer of audio plugins, and DiGiCo, the world’s leading manufacturer of professional mixing consoles, have joined forces to create the most advanced audio interfaces on the market, with award-winning preamps and superior networking and processing capabilities.

DiGiGrid is a network audio system using Cat5/Cat6 Ethernet connectivity in conjunction with a Waves SoundGrid Server to deliver real-time processing of Waves and 3rd Party SoundGrid compatible plug-ins in a totally configurable and expandable format. The DiGiCo built hardware features super-low latency of only 0.8 milliseconds, top-flight microphone preamplifiers and conversion, built-in network switches, and the capability to connect multiple DAWs, including Pro Tools | HD / HDX systems, MADI, and connectivity with premiere digital live sound consoles from Yamaha, DiGiCo, and more. And the DiGiGrid hardware all work in conjunction with the Waves eMotion LV1 live mixing system to create an incredibly powerful, compact touchscreen mixer with DiGiCo quality input/output.

What We Think

The Waves DiGiGrid IOC Control Room I/O for SoundGrid Systems is the 'Swiss Army Knife' of the DiGiGrid range, providing a multitude of valuable I/O capabilities (16 x AES I/O, 8-channel ADC/DAC, 1 x ADAT) needed either in the studio control room, or at the Front Of House position for a system running Waves eMotion LV1. The IOC makes a perfect mate for engineers/studios already running a 16-channel AD/DA converter with AES/EBU I/O connectivity (Lynx Aurora 16, Apogee Symphony I/O, Mytek 8x192, for example), and provides an additional 8-channels of strong AD/DA converter design courtesy of famed British digital console manufacturer DiGiCo.

With DiGiGrid getting audio onto the network is the important consideration. And the IOC makes integration of a SoundGrid server for increased mixing horsepower an easy integration, as well giving you ultra-fast connectivity and system latency of 0.8ms! So, DiGiGrid makes recording a rock-solid experience together with the eMotion ST Mixer and SoundGrid Studio architecture.

The IOC becomes a Front Of House mixer's best friend in an eMotion LV1 rig as it gives them 2 x microphone preamps for talk-back, and 2 x headphone amplifiers at the mix position while a couple of DiGiGrid IOX at the stage handle all of the needed input mic-preamps and outputs for monitors, mains and fills. The 8x8 ADC/DAC on a pair of DB25 connectors, allows the FOH to integrate analog gear in the driverack for processing vocals and more. And for special boutique preamps at the stage, an IOC at that location will be a handy helper, as well. There's even an ADAT I/O for anyone looking to integrate that into a live or studio scenario. Definitely a problem solver, for sure!

So, when you're designing your dream DiGiGrid SoundGrid system, be sure to have at least an IOC in the plans as they'll be some of the most used pieces, for sure.

Rock solid and versatile. February 5, 2017
Reviewer: J Constantopoulos from Johnson City, TN United States  
Great piece of gear. It just works. IOC sounds great, and plays well with my mac AND pc... at the same time! I'm using as my FOH io box in an lv1 setup, as a dedicated monitor io in my studio rig, and as the main io in a simple mobile recording rig.

Digigrid: To me, networked audio is the only way to go. Sound quality is great, the system is infinitely scalable, and it is scary fast. I'll never go back to fw, USB, or thunderbolt interfaces.
