Waves Audio announces the availability of the Cloud MX Audio Mixer, a 100% cloud-based audio mixer with “superior sound quality for cloud broadcast environments”. Cloud MX Audio Mixer delivers pristine audio, high-precision mix control, and creative processing capabilities with full Waves plugin integration – all in a scalable, remotely operated, broadcast-ready cloud workflow.
Broadcasters and media organizations can now add state-of-the-art audio mixing and processing to their flexible professional cloud-based workflows, thanks to Cloud MX Audio Mixer’s crystal-clear double-precision 32-bit-float mixing engine, augmented by Waves’ industry-leading arsenal of cloud-licensed audio plugins.
Waves’ Cloud MX Audio Mixer is deployed by customers on Amazon Web Services (AWS) using Waves Central, a comprehensive software installation and license management application for Waves software. Customers can deploy the mixer in any available Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) geographical location to optimize network performance between the cloud, remote operators, and on-premise equipment.
Waves Cloud MX is NDI®-compatible, fitting easily into NDI-based cloud production environments, with simple patching and routing of NDI audio streams. Broadcasters using any NDI-compatible cloud-based production systems can now integrate studio-quality audio processing and mixing functionality to their cloud workflows.
Cloud MX Audio Mixer opens your live production workflows to more creative possibilities, with finer control over your audio streams. You can run chains of up to eight cloud-licensed plugins directly on any channel inside the mixer itself – helping you mix any event, in the cloud, with unmatched processing power.
All Waves Cloud MX Audio Mixer packages come with the powerful cloud-licensed Waves eMo plugins (eMo D5 Dynamics, eMo F2 Filter, and eMo Q4 Equalizer), which form the mixer’s channel strip for a fast, efficient workflow. You can expand your audio capabilities even further by upgrading to Cloud MX Audio Mixer Plus, with 11 extra cloud-licensed plugins such as the Primary Source Expander for automatic mic bleed elimination, the legendary Renaissance Vox vocal compressor, the surgical F6 Floating-Band Dynamic EQ, MaxxBass, the L2 UltraMaximizer and more; or to, Cloud MX Audio Mixer Premium which adds over 150 cloud-licensed plugins covering every audio need, including the Dugan Speech plugin for real-time automatic mixing of multiple mics.
With Cloud MX Audio Mixer, you and your team can bring a new level of audio fidelity, flexibility, and control to your broadcast production—with easy deployment and superior uncompromising sound quality.
