Dweezil Zappa: Making Music with Waves LV1

In this video, master musician Dweezil Zappa and his live sound crew show how the Waves eMotion LV1 Live Mixer mixing console helps them deliver a super-detailed live mix, and lets them get the most out of their performances. Check it out below...

So what is LV1?

The LV1 is a revolutionary digital mixing console for front-of-house, monitor, and broadcast engineers. Based on Waves SoundGrid technology, this software mixer delivers the superior sound quality for which Waves is renowned, as well as a quick workflow needed in demanding environments. It gives you unprecedented control over every aspect of the sound. Each of the mixer’s channels has its own plugin rack capable of running up to eight Waves and third-party plugins, meaning you can mix live with hundreds of your favourite plugins - all running inside the mixer itself. All plugin presets and chains saved in eMotion LV1 can be shared with the Waves MultiRack and StudioRack plugin hosts, enabling you to move seamlessly between live and studio environments.

The mixer’s channel strip - its standard EQ, filters and dynamics processing - is provided by Waves eMo plugins: eMo D5 Dynamics, eMo F2 Filter and eMo Q4 Equalizer, designed for maximum clarity and efficiency in a live environment.

You can control eMotion LV1 using industry-standard hardware controllers, multi-touch screens and diverse portable devices, from four touchscreens to a single laptop or tablet. Whichever device you are using, the LV1 has the same intuitive workflow, with a user interface built for flexibility and speed.
