Shure announces the completion of its acquisition of Ab Wavemark Oy. The move adds Wavemark’s software products to Shure’s professional audio portfolio, equipping audio technicians in theatre, film, TV, broadcast, and content streaming applications with innovative tools.
WAVETOOL was showcased at the Shure booth #502 at AES-NY Wednesday, October 25 – Friday, October 27 at the Javits Convention Center.
WAVETOOL is an audio and listening application that provides critical, comprehensive monitoring for audio professionals. WAVETOOL’s early detection of potential audio problems, streamlined communication capabilities with the sound team, and its centralization of monitoring functionalities, helps professionals monitor high-stakes productions with confidence. This robust software tool seamlessly combines mic monitoring and RF quality monitoring for all audio sources into a single, efficient view, tailored to meet your needs, the company says.
“What I really like about WAVETOOL is how instant it is to see problems and an overview of the RF system,” says Vicky Hill, front of house engineer. “It’s also brilliant with the outsourcing help that we need to deal with our system and make the show run more smoothly. I also enjoyed the SCP function. It means that teams are able to find out what that noise is that’s happening backstage, even if maybe they weren’t at the rack when it happened.”
Hill continues, “Using WAVETOOL has really streamlined the way that we work as a team; it means that we can really get the most out of the people that we have working here in the theater. It means that my job, Front of House, is made easier and more consistent by streamlining the workflow of the people backstage. We can be working at the radio rack or we can be working on an iPad, doesn’t matter, because we are still achieving great results.”
WAVETOOL is compatible with several Shure systems, including Axient Digital, ULX-D, SLX-D, Axient Analog, and UHF-R. It also works with other RF receivers from third-party brands.
In addition, the WTAUTOMIXER V2 plug-in offers seamless sound-mixing capabilities and automatically balances volume across multiple microphones while intuitively turning down non-active microphones for crystal-clear audio.
