Waves Announces CA3000-MX Commercial Audio Mixer for A/V System Integrators and Installers

Waves Audio expands its Commercial Audio line with the introduction of the CA3000-MX commercial audio mixer.

Waves CA3000-MX is a new ready-to-install audio mixing and processing engine that delivers stellar sound quality for a wide range of single-room and multi-zone AV setups. CA3000-MX offers powerful onboard mixing and processing capabilities that can enhance the sound of any installed audio system; it also provides the ability to extend processing, adding plugins from Waves’ massive catalog. The CA3000-MX system is compatible with standard ASIO or Dante® network audio configurations.

CA3000-MX is ideal for any corporate, commercial, government, educational or house of worship installation that demands a high level of audio quality and advanced processing flexibility. Housed in a compact, half-width 2U rackmount chassis, the CA3000-MX combines a powerful digital audio processing engine with an installation-ready version of the proven Waves eMotion LV1 mixer, supporting up to 32 stereo inputs , 24 stereo aux mix outputs plus L/R/C/M outputs and a 12×8 stereo matrix.

System integration and configuration is simple: the CA3000-MX easily integrates with standard ASIO audio device drivers or Dante® Virtual Soundcard (DVS) audio networking.

Integrators can add any Waves plugins they want to the CA3000-MX, to customize processing to their specific needs. Waves offers a wide selection of audio processing plug-ins to solve feedback cancellation, dynamics control, source leveling, noise reduction, acoustic response, streaming optimization , etc.

Installations that require automatic mixing of multiple live microphones (such as corporate and government chat panels) can also add the Waves Dugan Speech plug-in as an optional purchase. Powered by Dan Dugan’s patented voice activation process, Dugan Speech controls the gains of multiple microphones automatically and in real time, dramatically reducing noise, feedback and comb filtering from adjacent microphones. This capability provides integrators with a superior solution for panel discussions, faith-based services and events, conferences, and any other event involving multiple microphones and multiple attendees.

End users can easily control preconfigured and fully customized audio settings, using the Waves mRecall audio scene recall app, to deliver superior sound quality to any commercial space.

Also new are updated versions of the Waves CA1000 and CA2000 commercial audio DSP engines, now offering more integration options: in addition to Dante compatibility, these units are now also ASIO compatible. Additionally, you can now remotely control custom CA1000 and CA2000 parameters with the Waves mRecall Audio Scene & Snapshot app.
