The Most Compact and PortableWaves Processing System Yet


The slim, elegant Proton Duo combines a Waves Proton SoundGrid server, an Axis Proton Waves-customized computer, and a built-in network switch. For the first time, you can add plugin processing power and run Waves applications such as eMotion LV1 or SuperRack using the same compact device, instead of two separate devices.

Preconfigured, wired, easily rack-mountable, and ready-to-go straight out of the box, Proton Duo is designed for quick setup: Just plug it into your I/O—anytime, anywhere—and you’re ready to mix with Waves’ world-class plugin processing.

In addition to boosting your DSP power, the compact, half-rack Proton Duo is optimized to run the Waves eMotion LV1 live mixer (16-channel configuration) or the 16-channel SuperRack SoundGrid live plugin host. With server, computer and switch all rolled into one, Proton Duo delivers true power and ease of use.
