Genex Audio announced three new accessories for the GX9000 8-track and GX9048 48-track high-resolution multiformat digital multitrack systems, which both provide 192/24 PCM and Direct Stream Digital capabilities.
The GXR948 Remote Controller (MSRP: $2,500) for the GX9000 and GX9048 allows individual, direct control of up to 48 channels of record-arming and monitoring with no bank switching. The large, ergonomically designed control surface features dedicated buttons for each function, plus dedicated displays for critical parameters, including sample rate and input source. The unit outputs industry-standard P2 control protocol with full "Go To," memory, cycle and related functions, and is similar in layout to the Sony PCM-3348 digital multitrack remote.
The GXPC Edit ($500) is a plug-in waveform editor for Genex' GXR PC control software that enables cut, copy, paste and erase operations on up to 48 channels of audio data. "GXPC Edit is the only cost-effective solution that provides sample-accurate edits across 48 DSD data channels," commented Genex' president Kevin Brown. "And there is no conversion to PCM involved in the editing process." The GUI-based application features an intuitive, user-friendly interface that allows single element or block moves between tracks. Connection to the GX9000 or GX9048 is via a USB 2.0 port. The program is currently Windows XP-compatible; a Macintosh OS X version is under development.
Lastly, the GX9MB Meter Bridge ($1,000) provides up to 48 channels of 24-segment level metering, organized as two rows of 24 channels. The 19-inch 4U chassis features a brushed anodized construction, and can be freestanding, rackmounted or mounted on to the GXR948 remote controller. Features include integral timecode display, recorder status and signal-present LEDs. Meter dynamics, fine-scale calibration and oversensitivity can be controlled remotely from the GXR PC software or the GXR948 remote. A single BNC cable connects to the GX9000 or GX9048, passing control and PPM data. The unit includes a 110 to 240-volt universal power supply.
