Prism Sound attended the 118th AES Convention in Barcelona, introducing a range of new products for the recording and test and measurement markets.
The company debuted the ADA-8XR multichannel converter and processor, which operates at sampling rates up to 192kHz and boasts great analog performance. Existing ADA-8s can be economically upgraded to XR specification. Prism Sound is offering a 10-percent discount to any customer ordering an upgrade before May 31, 2005.
Also shown was Prism Sound’s new FireWire Interface Module that enables ADA-8 and XR units to interface directly with Mac and PC workstations. This option seamlessly integrates the ADA-8 and ADA-8XR to any Core-Audio compliant Mac program, or WDM or ASIO compliant Windows program, allowing the user to plug-and-play the ADA-8 and ADA-8XR with a variety of systems including Steinberg Nuendo, Cubase, Apple Logic Pro 7 and Cakewalk Sonar.
Prism Sound also offered European test and measurement audiences the first chance to see it’s new dS-NET VSIO (Versatile Serial I/O) Adapter, a dS-NET peripheral that is designed to interface to a DUT at chip level via configurable serial audio and control interfaces. The company is also showing the dS-LPF, a passive lowpass filter designed for applications such as digital power amplifier testing where out-of-band noise must be controlled.
Rounding out its AES line-up was new software for the dScope III, which will be ready to ship at the beginning of June. The new software incorporates a number of previously unavailable features including regulation, which controls one parameter to meet a target value of another parameter; nested sweeps, which allows a sweep to be repeated over a range of values of another parameter; highpass and lowpass filters that can now have user defined cut-off frequencies and FFT detectors that can now have brickwall highpass and lowpass filters. Dscope also now provides sliders on often used controls such as generator amplitude and frequency. Many other useful features are available, including a start-up wizard for configuring the dScope to user preferences.
