Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

A Revolution in Live Sound Processing!

Note: This is an offer from Waves allowing approved educational facilities to purchase this software at a special discounted price. A school Purchase Order (PO) is required to order this product.

Waves MultiRack is the live sound breakthrough we've all been waiting for. Finally, there's a streamlined, ultra-stable way to use your favorite plugins as live signal processors. MultiRack delivers the same power to run multiple simultaneous instances of the same, awesome native Waves plug-ins that revolutionized the studio recording world. With a laptop computer and a multi-channel audio interface, you can replace dozens of rack spaces worth of equalizers and dynamics processors just by running MultiRack. But beyond merely replacing hardware, you can also save and recall all of your processors' settings instantly with MultiRack, just as you can with any DAW.

What MultiRack offers you is access to world of the finest reverbs, equalizers, compressors, limiters, and delays without the limitations, hassles, or expense of hardware. There's no need to drag around all of the bulky cables or towering stacks of rack gear anymore! Waves designed MultiRack to be simple yet impressively powerful, allowing you the same advanced routing options as hardware, but with none of the cumbersome cabling or fumbling around in the dark for proper inputs and outputs.

Each input and output or pairs of inputs and outputs act as a separate "rack" within Multirack. Next, you plug into your interface the same way you would plug into an effects unit or processing chain. You can have up to 64 racks, with eight effects/processors each. It's that easy! To keep things organized, you can easily group like racks. Any processing can cause latency, but you can align MultiRacks negligible latency per group. Full session and session snapshot recall with total parameter control via a single monitor make MultiRack one of the most exciting technological advancements that the live sound world had seen!

  • Use your favorite waves plug-ins, live!
  • Take studio sound to the stage and back again
  • Quick and simple setup
