TerraTec Producer has unveiled PHASE X24 FW, the professional version of PHASE 24 FW and a studio interface featuring FireWire technology. Housed in a stand-alone aluminum chassis, the device features two analog inputs (line, hi-Z or mic in with 48V phantom power), four outputs, digital I/O, MIDI I/O, insert jacks and gain knobs.
The two combination jacks on the front panel of the external housing accept 6.3 mm (1/4-inch) jack plugs for instruments such as electric guitars and basses, as well as XLR connectors for microphones. Equipped with status and clip LEDs, these inputs’ levels are individually adjustable using two dedicated gain knobs. On demand, 48-volt phantom power can assigned separately to each channel.
With four line outs, the PHASE X 24 FW’s crystal-clear signals are sent loss-free to outboard devices. The unit also offers 24-bit /192 kHz signal processing and 111dB signal-to-noise ratio. An adjustable headphones output, a digital interface (optical) for S/PDIF, AC3 and DTS formats, and a MIDI I/O round out the range of connection options. Data can be sent via a FireWire-enabled link to users’ computers. MSRP: 359 Euros. The unit hits stores in May 2005.
