  • Web Player or DAW? Your Choice.

    Listening via the Waves Stream web player requires no license. Prefer to listen to incoming audio through your DAW? You can do that too, using the ‘Receiver’ plugin included in your Waves Stream license.

    Features: Web Player or DAW? Your Choice.
  • The Car Test. Simpler.

    Sometimes you need to get away from your studio to hear how things sound out there in the world. With Waves Stream it’s super-easy. Pull out your phone, scan the Waves Stream QR code, loop your audio—and go listen in your airpods, on your car speakers, or anywhere else.

    Features: The Car Test. Simpler.
  • Integrated Mic Control

    Waves Stream’s built-in Mic control allows you to comment on the song or mix you are sharing while you’re playing it—similar to a studio’s talkback function. This is especially helpful when you’re seeking approval or final sign-off from the person you’re collaborating with. Simply sidechain any channel that has a mic connected to it to Waves Stream, and comment away—complete with easy gain control.

    Features: Integrated Mic Control
  • 100% Private and Secure

    We’ve made sure your audio will reach only the right people. First, every Stream is a one-time, single-use link. Second, if someone doesn’t click on a link within 5 minutes of you sending it, the stream will terminate. Third, you have the option to easily password-protect your links.

    Features: 100% Private and Secure
