Pyramix Native, the software-only version of the acclaimed Pyramix Virtual Studio DAW, has increased in specification and functionality with its new Version 5.0. The Standard Native system grows from 2 to 4 inputs and outputs, and the more advanced Native Media Bundle grows to eight inputs and outputs. Both versions have increased from 8 to 24-track editing, mixing and processing. In addition, Native and Media Bundle now contain all the increased functionality of the Pyramix Virtual Studio V5.0 software with the option of 96kHz sample rate.
Pyramix Native is designed to operate on any Windows® XP-based desktop or laptop PC using the computer’s on-board audio engine or ASIO compatible audio card. It offers all of the real-time editing and mixing capabilities of Merging’s Pyramix Virtual Studio (VS) system and supports the same audio formats, including .WAV, BWF, AIFF, SD2 and more. All audio formats can be mixed within the same project with no conversion necessary. The new AAF import and export option also allows project interchange with other mainstream DAW systems.
Pyramix ‘Native’ has a maximum of eight inputs and outputs and up to 24 editing tracks and does not require Merging’s Mykerinos DSP hardware technology. With a streamlined Pyramix user interface, Native uses Windows “drag’n’drop” and double click methodology.
Pyramix Native retains all the real-time editing and mixing capabilities of the main Pyramix VS system with real time factory plug-ins for EQ, Dynamics, Metering, etc. A range of third party Plug-ins is also available, including Reverb, Audio restoration, Time Compress/Expand with Direct-X and VST compatibility.
Activated by a USB Dongle, Native can be installed on a PC and/or a laptop and the dongle transferred to the required machine at any time. As both Pyramix Native and Pyramix Virtual Studio are easily networked as standard, using any windows-based network protocol makes accessing and transferring files between working machines extremely simple.
