"Wavetool has been crucial in the monitoring of the My Fair Lady tour 2016/2017. We have 42 channels of RF and having software you can monitor with both your eyes and ears is just a less stressful way than plugging in and out of receivers. Wavetool is such a nice piece of software to have in your kit."

- A2 for My Fair Lady -production, AL Bremner

 


What is Wavetool?

Wavetool is a professional audio monitoring application for audio engineers. With Wavetool can you quickly find microphones with problems, low battery or no signal. Walk freely around the stage while streaming to your iOS device with the Wavetool Remote app.

Version 2 of Wavetool brings the tools of the sound team together in one application. The SCP algorithm helps you find weird noises in your sources before they can be heard in the mix.

Wavetool brings monitoring functions of different radio microphone brands together under one roof with integration of the most used RF receivers. Togehter with the Chat Plugin can you now communicate tranmitter problems between stage and FOH easier than ever!

 

Why did we create Wavetool?

We have been in your shoes with lots of signals going in different directions and no room for error. All microphones must work at all times. You need to rush away from your monitor desk or RF city in order to catch an actor with a broken microphone engaged in a quick change on the opposite end of the stage. When the hands are on the console you need an easy way to communicate your needs to your A2.

We created the tool that we ourselves needed in order to do our job. Wavetool uses an easy iOS app remote to help you to route the right audio channels to your IEM cue. In addition, Wavetool also highlights potentially problematic channels using our own SCP algorithm. With version 2 there is even more enhancements added with chat and snapshot functions.
