The Waves DiGiGrid IOS-XL SoundGrid Audio Interface is a premium SoundGrid audio interface with award-winning preamps, ideal for professional and personal production studios. Features 8 ins, 8 outs, and a built-in SoundGrid DSP server for real-time plugin processing.

The Waves DigiGrid IOS-XL is the perfect centerpiece for the studio, featuring 8 mic/line inputs with premium preamps, 8 line outputs, 2 headphone outputs, MIDI I/O, S/PDIF and AES inputs and outputs and an integrated SoundGrid DSP server. Building on the popular DiGiGrid IOS, the Waves DiGiGrid IOS-XL comes with the complete SoundGrid Studio System software (the SoundGrid Studio Application, StudioRack, and the eMotion ST mixer). Used in combination with this software, the Waves GiGiGrid IOS-XL lets you mix and monitor in real time using up to hundreds of your favorite SoundGrid-compatible Waves and third-party plugins, with super-low latency of only 0.8 milliseconds.

Need more I/O? A single Ethernet cable is all you need to connect additional SoundGrid components to your network via the built-in network switch.

Setup Native DAW with a DiGiGrid IOS-XL
This setup allows offloading Audio Processing to the Waves DiGiGrid IOS-XL’s Built-In SoundGrid Server. This setup includes a typical studio that includes a host computer with a Native DAW and a single I/O interface connecting mics, instruments, headphones and monitors. By using a Waves DiGiGrid IOS-XL with its built-in SoundGrid DSP server, you can offload audio processing from the DAW. This affords much more processing power (up to 8 plugins per StudioRack insert). Plus, you can use StudioRack in conjunction with the eMotion ST mixer. This enables you to record and monitor with very low latency and increases the number of plugins you can use simultaneously.

Setup Daw PC Expansion I/O DSP
This setup includes one computer, one I/O with a DSP Server, one expansion I/O unit, and one DAW. Want to mix, record, and monitor with a large number of plugins in near-zero latency? By adding the Waves DiGiGrid IOS-XL’s built-in DSP server to your SoundGrid network you can offload your audio processing from your DAW to the server. This dramatically increases the number of plugins you can run simultaneously. In addition, it allows you to use the eMotion mixer, which lets you create personalized monitor mixes from your DAW mix and outside sources, and also allows you to open 64 StudioRacks. Need more I/Os? Just connect a Waves DiGiGrid IOX expansion unit to your Waves DiGiGrid IOS-XL via a single Cat 5e or Cat 6 Ethernet cable, and now you have 12 more top-quality input preamps, 6 line outs, and 4 more individual headphone outputs.

Setup Various DAWs Simultaneously
This setup allows running various DAWs simultaneously using a single Waves DiGiGrid IOS-XL. In this setup, a single Cat 5e or Cat 6 Ethernet cable connects each of the four computers to the Waves DiGiGrid IOS-XL’s Ethernet switch. Each computer that is part of a SoundGrid network uses the SoundGrid driver to stream audio into the network. In this setup configuration, the main host computer running the SoundGrid Studio Application patches between all host computers within the network and configures their ASIO/Core Audio driver inputs and outputs.
