Collaboration is easy with a SoundGrid equipped Symphony I/O MKII at the center of your studio. Simply connect any additional computers via ethernet cable to effortlessly route audio digitally between multiple computers and your main Symphony I/O, using any combination of DAWs.

Let’s say you have a great drum beat started in Logic Pro X and a collaborator comes to your studio with their laptop and Ableton Live. You can simply connect the laptop to your host computer with an ethernet cable, download the Waves SoundGrid connect audio driver on your guest’s computer and you’re ready to collaborate. Transport controls will be synced between the two computers and you can play all tracks through your Symphony I/O MKII.

Record with Real-Time Plug-ins.Mix with Unlimited Power.

Add a Waves SoundGrid server to your Symphony I/O MKII to supercharge your workstation and be able to record with plug-ins, with near zero latency. The SoundGrid Server handles plug-in processing so your computer can handle other demanding tasks while mixing or editing. Use more plug-ins than ever by spreading the load between your computer and the server. When you are away from your studio, these plug-ins can continue to run natively on whatever computer you’re on – no hardware or dongle required.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
