The Instant Upgrade for More Plugin Processing Power


Add plugin processing power in the studio or live, with Waves’ most affordable DSP server yet. Small enough to fit in your backpack, you can take Proton anywhere and supercharge your mixing sessions wherever you go.

In the studio, use the Proton server with the audio interface and DAW you already have in order to free up your computer’s CPU and offload plugin processing to the server. Or use the Proton server with a SoundGrid audio interface to record through plugins without latency.

In live shows, use the Proton server with a SoundGrid audio interface and any compatible mixing console to process audio using Waves plugins at ultra-low latency. The Proton server is ideal for use with 32-channel live sound hardware consoles (via the SuperRack plugin rack), or with the 16-channel configuration of the Waves eMotion LV1 software mixer.
