Tactus™ .Stage

32 In / 16 Out SoundGrid Stage Box


Built in partnership with Waves®, the Tactus™ Digital Mixing System puts high quality audio, custom configuration and class leading features at the operator’s fingertips. Built on the combination of the Waves eMotion™ LV1 mixer, SoundGrid® server technology and Crest Audio Tactus IO interfaces, the Tactus Digital Mixing System represents the next evolution in digital consoles- without the physical limitations of a console.
