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

Knoxville, TN, June 25, 2020 — Waves Audio, the world’s leading developer of professional audio signal processing technologies and leading maker of audio plugins for mixing, music production, mastering, sound design, broadcast, post-production and live sound, announces the Waves FIT Controller for the eMotion LV1 Live Mixer.

FIT is the ultimate hands-on control unit for the Waves eMotion LV1 live software mixer. Developed specifically for the LV1, the FIT controller helps you combine the best of both worlds: the pristine sound quality, unparalleled digital workflow, plugin integration, portability and space-saving small footprint of the eMotion LV1 mixer — together with all the convenience of a robust, feature-rich tactile controller.

Waves FIT has been co-engineered by Waves Audio and expert MIDI control manufacturer MIDIPLUS to offer live sound engineers quick and efficient operation and intuitive tactile control of the world’s best live software mixer, with all the advantages of a high-quality robust controller, including tactile response of faders, knobs and buttons for console operations.

FIT is designed to function as a fully integrated 16-fader bank with the LV1 mixer. This is made possible with 16 + 1 motorized 100mm faders, each featuring Mute, Solo and Select buttons, a multi-function rotary control and a bright 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 audio engineers with a 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 compact controller weighs only 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.

With Waves’ FIT, eMotion LV1 users enjoy the integration of the world’s best digital live sound mixer with a compact, intuitive control surface, for an unprecedented tactile hands-on experience that goes with you, wherever you need it.

Price: $1,200

If this doesn't work as a DAW controller as well, they're missing out on a HUGE opportunity...

Here for the gear
 

Honestly, the hardware looks pretty solid. I'd want to see it in person, but if it does, I'd absolutely be tempted, even at that price.

This basically. It looks good and has basically everything to be a HUI controller. Waves, are you listening?

I don’t think this have transport buttons, to start with..
It’s meant for their live mixer..
So the feature set is a little bit different..
But they could “modify” this and do a studio version..

Although what everybody is missing is a user programmable interface for controlling eq’s and comps, with faders, banks, User definable buttons and transport..

I wish Allen&Heath could come up with something like that based on their SQ or dLive range.

This product looks great, but the resolution of midi is quite low, how will this mitigate this issue?

Not if they are using SysEx hexadecimal which I’m sure they are.
