Track and Mix with Plugin in Real Time
Perfect for control rooms, the DiGiGrid IOC audio interface offers 2 mic/line ins, 8 line ins/outs, 16 AES and ADAT ins/outs, and 2 stereo headphone outs. Connect a dedicated SoundGrid DSP server, and integrate hundreds of SoundGrid-compatible Waves and 3rd-party plugins with your DAW.
Just plug the IOC into your SoundGrid network using a single Ethernet cable, and enter a world of real-time tracking, mixing and monitoring—with extremely low latency of only 0.8 milliseconds.
Native DAW with a DiGiGrid IOC
This is a typical studio setup that includes a host computer with a Native DAW and a single I/O interface connecting mics, instruments, headphones and monitors.
One Host Computer, a DiGiGrid IOC and a SoundGrid DSP Server
You probably want to run more plugins. Perhaps you want to record small ensembles and then mix with a large number of plugins, or record and monitor with very low latency.
By adding a SoundGrid DSP server to your SoundGrid network. you can offload your audio processing. This greatly increases the number of plugins you can use simultaneously. Plus, it enables you to use the eMotion ST mixer, which lets you create personalized monitor mixes from your DAW mix and from outside sources, and also allows you to open 64 StudioRacks and use them for low-latency monitoring.
One Host Computer, a DiGiGrid IOC and a DiGiGrid IOX
Need more I/O channels? Need more headphone outputs?
Add a DiGiGrid IOX, and you get 12 more mic/line inputs with broadcast/studio-quality preamps and 4 more individual headphone outputs. Connect the IOX to the built-in Ethernet switch on the rear of the IOC. You can add up to 8 SoundGrid I/O devices to a single host. Each of these can be accessed by any computer on the network.
Audio and clock pass through the same Ethernet cable. This way of distributing clock is called “Sync over Ethernet” (SoE) and is used between all SoundGrid devices. To clock the entire network to an external clock source such as house sync, use Word Clock or Digital In as clock master for the IOC. If the IOC is the SoE master, the entire network will be locked to this external source.
Running Various DAWs Simultaneously Using a Single DiGiGrid IOC
This configuration is for running audio from multiple DAWs simultaneously and mixing them in real time.
Each of the four computers is connected to the DiGiGrid IOC via a 1 GB network switch, using a single Cat 5e or Cat 6 Ethernet cable.
Every computer in a SoundGrid network uses the SoundGrid driver to stream audio into the SoundGrid network. In this setup, the main host computer running the SoundGrid Studio Application patches between all host computers within the network and configures their ASIO/Core Audio driver’s ins and outs.
