• Waves Audio Announces the FIT Controller for the eMotion LV1 Live Mixer

    Waves Audio, developer of audio signal processing technologies and audio plugins, announces the Waves FIT Controller for the eMotion LV1 Live Mixer.

    FIT is a hands-on control unit for the Waves eMotion LV1 live software mixer. Developed specifically for the LV1, the FIT Controller helps you combine the digital workflow, plugin integration, portability and space-saving footprint of the eMotion LV1 mixer with the convenience of a robust, feature-rich tactile controller, according to the company.

    Waves FIT has been co-engineered by Waves Audio and MIDI control manufacturer MIDIPLUS to offer live sound engineers quick and efficient operation. It is designed to function as a fully integrated 16-fader bank with the LV1 mixer, with 16 + 1 motorized 100mm faders, each featuring Mute, Solo and Select buttons, a multi-function rotary control and a display for each channel. Fader banks are controlled using eight dedicated layer switches for toggling between the eight factory or custom layers in the Waves eMotion LV1 Live Mixer. The channel rotary controls can be set to adjust preamp gain or pan per channel with the corresponding function label shown in the display. In addition, the 16 Select channel toggles can be set to “USER” mode to provide easy access to Mute Groups and user-assignable keys.

    The FIT Controller also provides Tap Tempo pad and a “Touch & Turn” knob for controlling any parameter selected on the eMotion LV1 screen. Additionally, common LV1 functions and modes can be controlled from the UTILITY section, where some of the controlled functions be customized by the user.

    This controller weighs 2 kg (4.5lb) and can be fitted with rack ears to mount into a 19-inch 7U rack space. Rear panel connections include a USB Type B port for computer connection, 12V 2A DC power input, and two 5v 0.5A USB outlets for external LED lighting.

    US Price: $1,200+tax. It should become available within Q3.

    Loudspeaker impedance

    Measured in ohms (symbol, Ω, upper case Greek letter omega), electrical impedance is defined as the opposition to the flow of alternating current by means of presenting an electrical load. In a loudspeaker, impedance varies with frequency, so manufacturers often publish "impedance curves" showing impedance with frequency for passive units. These curves give us... Read more

    Balanced and unbalanced connections

    There are two basic ways to carry an electrical audio signal.


    • The first one is unbalanced. The signal is carried on a two-conductor cable. Unbalanced signal connectors have two pins, such as the RCA (also called Phono and Cinch, commonly used by home hi-fi equipment) and the unbalanced 1/4" (used in musical instruments and semi-professional audio). Multi-pin connectors can also carry
