The APA is a hardware solution that lets you easily run multiples of Waves' most CPU-intensive plug-ins. For example, the APA44-M lets you run 6 IR-1 Reverbs, or 9 Linear Phase Equalizers, or 20 C4 Multiband Parametric Processors at 44.1KHz, giving you up to 30% more plug-in power than the APA32. What's more, the APA unit doesnyt require a PCI card or a Firewire or USB connection. You simply connect them to a standard Ethernet port, install the new NetShell software, and cut loose.

What if you need even more power? Easy: add another APA. You can connect up to 8 APA units to a single host computer using a standard Ethernet switch. Mix and match the APA32 and APA44-M units if you like. Because APA units use standard Ethernet hardware, you can expand your Waves power easily, without the need for proprietary gear.

If you have more than one workstation, you can also distribute your Waves power among them. With each machine authorized and using NetShell, all you need is a V-LAN switching system to assign any combination of APA units to whoever needs the most power—up to 8 APA units per workstation. For example, with 16 APA units and 4 workstations, you could allot 4 APAs to each computer. But if the next job requires two machines each running 8 APAs, you can make the change in minutes without even unplugging a single cable.
