DS2416 Digital Mixing Card:
At the heart of the DSP Factory is the breakthrough DS2416 Digital Mixing Card with powerful recording, mixing and sound processing engine built right in. The DS2416's mixer provides the power of the industry standard Yamaha 02R digital mixer - and much, much more - on a desktop platform. This includes 24 channels of digital mixing with a full range of on-board digital effects and dynamics processors, along with everything else professionals need, including a generous 16 tracks of 32-bit hard disk recording. A built-in audio-streaming engine provides 8-tracks of simultaneous recording and 16 tracks playback of up to 32-bit audio to and from the computer's disk drive. On-board effects include 12 reverb types, 11 modulation types, 2 distortion types, 3 dynamics types, and 12 special combination types. What's more, unlike most other audio cards, the DS2416 runs on its own power and not the computer's CPU, which ensures that all functions of the card are available simultaneously, to provide a level of flexibility and performance previously not possible. And certainly not at this price.
Easy installation and operation
The DS2416 Digital Mixing Card supports the Windows® 95/98 and Macintosh® platforms and quickly installs in the PCI card slot of a standard personal computer. Yamaha supports the Windows® NT platform. Operated from the CRT, keyboard and mouse using appropriate control software available from the world's leading developers of hard disk recording applications, the DS2416 system lets you either stay with the interface you're already familiar with, or select one which best suits your personal composing, recording and mixing style. The DS2416 card has stereo digital and 20-bit analog inputs and outputs which let you record and mix to and from a wide range of digital and analog two-channel sources. Two DS2416 cards can be linked to create a larger system, and expansion hardware components are separately available which permit multiple-channel digital and analog input and output options. All in all, the DS2416 is the most convenient and affordable way for musicians, sound designers and audio production professionals to add top-performance non-linear recording - with its inherent creative advantages of easy editing and instant access to audio data - to their systems. In fact, it's a truly viable replacement for conventional recorder, mixer and separate component systems
FEATURES & CAPABILITIES:
Full scope of DS2416 capabilities depends upon control software specifications.
The DS2416's mixer comes complete with literally all the professional effects and processing features you need. Relying on its own on-board processing power, all mixer functions are available simultaneously to provide unprecedented range and performance. Features include... • 24 channel, 32-bit digital mixer • 10 bus outputs and 6 aux sends • 4-band parametric EQ on each input and stereo out • Dynamics processors on each input and stereo out • Two effects processors equal in quality to the Yamaha REV500 • Channel delay on 20 channels • Comprehensive metering • Digital cross-patching for channel inputs and outputs • 2 channel analog input (20-bit AD) and output (20-bit DA) • Stereo DIGITAL (coaxial) input and output • Optional interface provides multi-channel analog & digital I/O
The DS2416's multi-track digital recorder is extremely powerful in its own right, including a built-in audio-streaming engine. Features include... • 8-track simultaneous recording with up to 32-bit resolution •16-track playback from hard disk with up to 32-bit resolution • Sample-accurate synchronization between tracks • Signals to and from recorder and mixer remain in digital domain • Synchronization to outside sources via the control software
Optional expansion units permit multiple-channel audio connections to and from the DS2416 to provide for connection of multi-channel digital equipment such as outboard digital multitrack recorders and signal processors. Currently existing possibilities include... • A single DS2416 card with up to two AX44s can provide up to 12 external inputs and outputs • The AX16-AT Audio Expansion card allows interface with digital multitrack recorders, external audio converters and digital recording consoles • Two DS2416 cards can be cascaded to create a larger system • Connection with other cards such as Yamaha XG PCI Sound Card SW1000XG
