Shure broadens audio portfolio with advanced tools

Shure has announced the completion of its acquisition of Ab Wavemark. The move adds Wavemark’s software products to Shure’s professional audio portfolio, equipping audio technicians in theater, film, TV, broadcast, and content streaming applications with innovative tools. These tools aim to inspire confidence and minimize guesswork in real–time applications.

WAVETOOL is an audio and listening application that provides critical, comprehensive monitoring for audio professionals.

Vicky Hill, Front of House Engineer, stated: “What I really like about WAVETOOL is how instant it is to see problems and an overview of the RF system. I 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 continued: “Using WAVETOOL has really streamlined the way that we work as a team; 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 popular 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.
