Please note: The LV1 Session Editor does not pass audio. Use it to configure your session before the show. Learn more about the full version of the eMotion LV1 live mixer here.

Come to the Show Prepared: Set Up Your LV1 Mixer Sessions Offline, Anytime, Anywhere.


This software is an offline Session Editor for the Waves eMotion LV1 live mixer. It helps you save time, and probably money, by allowing you to complete your most time-intensive prep tasks offline, before you arrive at the venue.

You can configure every aspect of the eMotion LV1 mixer session you’ll be using at your show, from any computer, anywhere. When you get to the venue, load the offline session file in your main LV1 software. All session information will be in place, so you’ll just need to connect I/Os and assign servers and controllers.

The LV1 Session Editor has the exact same interface as the main version of the LV1 software mixer, so moving a session between the two is transparent. You can save an LV1 session from the main LV1, edit it offline in the Session Editor, resave it, and reload it in the main mixer. If you already have presets, you can incorporate these into your offline session.

Now you can configure all of the following ahead of the show, with just a laptop:

  • Assign and configure offline I/O devices and I/O control panels
  • Configure plugin racks; set and save plugin parameters
  • Configure all mixer preferences, custom layers, etc.
  • Create routing to, from, and between devices
  • Name all channels, buses, devices, and delay groups
  • Save all scenes and user-assigned keys
