Designed for 16-channel setups that aspire to deliver superior sound quality, the SoundGrid Proton Server is Waves’ most affordable SoundGrid server yet.

Waves ProtonServer 400pxThis small but mighty unit is compatible with the Waves eMotion LV1 16-stereo-channel live mixer and is ideal for adding processing power to any live environment – whether in a fixed setup or on the road.
