Waves Audio introduces the eMotion LV1 Proton 16-Channel Live Mixing System. This is Waves’ most affordable complete live mixing system, ideal for 16-channel live setups that aspire to deliver pristine world-class sound quality.


October 24, 2019

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-optimised computer, a 24-inch Dell touchscreen, a 1U rack shelf, an 8-port network switch and network cables, plus three plugins specifically designed and optimised for live sound: eMo F2 Filter, eMo D5 Dynamics and eMo Q4 Equaliser. 

The touchscreen eMotion LV1 software mixer features 16 mono/stereo channels, each with a plugin rack that can host up to eight SoundGrid-compatible plugins 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 plugins is processed on the included super-compact SoundGrid Proton server. Processed audio is sent out to the PA system and back to the stage via eight line outputs with minimal latency: Only 0.8 ms at 48 kHz. 

For rock-solid stability, the Axis Proton computer is optimised 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 touchscreen, 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.
