Symetrix is now shipping the Orion 8x8 analog I/O DSP, the latest addition to its AirTools Studio Matrix series of modular audio DSP.
The Orion’s release coincides with the version 2.0 upgrade of the Studio Matrix Designer application (WIN) for design and real-time control of audio systems, also shipping now.
The Orion hardware is equipped with eight line-level analog inputs and outputs. It employs a pair of Analog Devices 66MHz SHARC processors. The Studio Matrix Designer application is used to create these signal routes and processing chains on a Windows PC. Parameter settings can be assigned to any of the 1,000 onboard preset locations and recalled on demand via RS-232 commands from the station's automation package.
Orion units can be used singly or in groups. Larger processing systems can be created by networking multiple units together. Audio routing between units is handled via the SymLink bus. This proprietary interconnect supports the free exchange of up to 64 channels of audio and control over CAT5 cable.
