Axis Proton

Axis Proton is a custom-designed computer, optimized through meticulous selection of components to run Waves audio applications such as the 16-channel eMotion LV1 live mixer and SuperRack live plugin rack.

With its SoundGrid connectivity, it integrates seamlessly with SoundGrid I/Os and servers, acting as the “brain” of a SoundGrid system. Designed to perform with maximum stability, Axis Proton is optimized for use in live setups of up to 16 stereo channels.

The half-rack 1U slick aluminum casing fits perfectly in a 1U rack shelf when paired with the SoundGrid Proton Server. Combine these two devices with the eMotion LV1 live 16-channel mixer, to build the ultimate compact live mixing system for a 16-channel live sound setup.
