Waves Proton Duo Soundgrid Server

Waves qualified all in one host, server, and switch - compact 1U half rack device


Product Description

The Waves Proton Duo Soundgrid Server combines a Waves Proton SoundGrid server, an Axis Proton audio-optimized computer, and a built-in network switch – all in one compact device. For the first time ever, you can add more plugin processing power via a SoundGrid server, and run Waves applications on a customized computer designed for outstanding audio performance – all using one slim elegant unit, instead of two separate devices.

In addition to boosting your DSP power, Proton Duo is optimized through meticulous selection of components to run the Waves eMotion LV1 live mixer, the SuperRack live plugin host, and the SoundGrid Studio application, on systems of up to 32 channels.

With server, computer and switch all rolled into one, Proton Duo is the most compact and portable Waves processing unit yet. Preconfigured, wired, 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.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

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.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

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.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
