Waves Digigrid IO-Server-XL im Studio
Ike Age, 30.11.2020
Als Tonmann habe ich mir das Waves Digigrid IO-Server-XL zur Unterstützung meiner Studioarbeit gekauft, die aus Filmtonmischungen und Musikproduktion mit vielen Waves-Plugins besteht. Dabei leistet es mir gute Dienste. Zusammen mit dem Avid S3-Mixer bildet es den Kern meines Studios. Es bietet mehrere Features in einem Gerät, für die man bis dahin verschiedene Studiohardware benötigte.
Zum einen bietet es ein Audiointerface, das mit 8 Ein- und Ausgängen. Die Mikrofonvorverstärker und Wandler klingen hervorragend, ebenso die Ausgänge D/A - Referenz!
Zum Zweiten eine 4x Ethernetschiene, um die Studiogeräte -bei mir macbookpro, S3, Digigrid u.a.- miteinander zu verbinden.
Vor allem aber als DSP-Engine für mehr waves plug-in Instanzen, die ich über Studio Rack bequem in ProTools insertieren kann und die meinen Rechner spürbar entlasten. Durch die sehr geringe Latenz der Effektberechnung erzeugt das Gerät Hitze, die mit einem durchgehend vernehmbaren Lüfter abgeführt wird. Für diesbezüglich empfindliche Ohren empfiehlt sich ein Silent Rack.
Auch an sonstigen Features und Anschlüssen -Timecode, spdif / AES, MIDI usw. - ist kein Mangel. Auch für Liveproduktionen soll es gut funktionieren, was ich aber noch nicht testen konnte.
Nach einer eher komplizierten Einrichtungsphase -das Gerät ist vielfältig konfigurierbar- mit telefonischem support, der jedoch auch mittels teamviewer gut funktionierte, macht mir das IOS-XL viel Freude. Es klingt transparent, warm aber trotzdem neutral, einfach hervorragend!

Vor dem Kauf sollte man unbedingt die Kompatibilität checken, das digigrid IOS-XL ist relativ neu und funktioniert nicht mit allen älteren Computern und Betriebssystemen.

Vers une révolution du mixage live
Cbulard, 19.09.2019
J'utilise l'IOS-XL comme DSP et I/O en régie pour ma console E-motion LV1 de Waves. Ce produit a tout ce qu'il faut, AES/EBU, entrées/sorties analogiques, préamps DiGiCo, un switch compatible soundgrid et surtout un I7 pour faire tourner la console et les plugins. La solution parfaite pour cette configuration
