DiGiGrid is the result of an inspired technological collaboration between two audio giants, DiGiCo and Waves Audio, with a common aim to extend studio quality recording and processing to the broader audio industry.
The manufacturers first joined forces in 2010, and by 2013, had developed a series of high quality audio interfaces, fusing DiGiCo A/D conversion and mic pres, and simple connectivity to the Waves SoundGrid network and real-time processing platform. This enabled DiGiGrid users to gain easy access to the entire Waves plugin suite; and as SoundGrid is now supported by a growing number of third-party developers, DiGiGrid’s potential and value in the market is expanding.
Using a simple Audio-over-Ethernet connection, DiGiGrid is able to offer users in the studio and live fields a unique experience: audio productions require higher track counts than ever before, they need to be expandable, and today, plugins are as crucial out on the road as they are in the studio; live engineers are often required to replicate the exact sound of the record on the big stages, and DiGiGrid’s one-cable AoE solution makes that workflow so much more straightforward.
This initial line of DiGiGrid interfaces offered Native DAW, Pro Tools HD, and MADI enabled devices a simple and powerful solution; and in 2017, the Desktop Series arrived: a new range of compact, easy to use studio-based interfaces that would offer budding engineers, producers, and grass roots musicians, the ability to record, monitor, and mix music to a professional level, using just one Ethernet cable for connectivity.
Furthermore, that DiGiGrid AoE connectivity means recording across multiple rooms or systems becomes incredibly simple; you can daisy-chain devices using just Ethernet cables, which allows for a simpler, more powerful solution, with ultra low-latency, and ultimate flexibility.
DiGiGrid was one of the first to the table in terms of AoE, and part of the company ethos is to continue to build upon that: to educate audio professionals on the benefits of this smart approach to recording, and make their lives a lot easier in the process.DiGiGrid
