Cambridge-based Prism Sound have just annouced the latest in their Orpheus-derived interfaces, the Titan. Keeping the familiar Greek lettering on the faceplate, the Titan is a multi-channel USB interface with a DSP engine and MDIO interface expansion slot for use with Pro Tools HDX systems.
More information follows from Prism Sound.
Press Release: Internationally renowned manufacturer Prism Sound is expanding its family of audio interfaces with the launch of Titan, which will be on show for the first time at the 135th AES Convention in New York (Booth 3032).
Prism Sound’s new Titan multi-channel audio interface offers recording professionals ultimate quality analogue and digital I/O for Mac or Windows PC at sample rates up to 192kHz via a simple USB interface.
“As with every product we release, Titan came about as a direct result of customer feedback,” says Graham Boswell, sales and marketing director of Prism Sound. “For some time now, customers using external hardware devices such as Pro Tools™ have wanted easy access to Prism Sound’s high quality audio interfaces, but at an affordable price. Titan is our answer. It offers all the award-winning features of the competitively priced Orpheus but with the USB functionality that users want.”
In addition to the USB host interface, Titan is the first Prism Sound device to feature the new MDIO interface expansion slot. This miniature expansion slot can be used to expand Titan’s connectivity, for example by adding a direct connection to Pro Tools|HDX systems.
Titan draws on Prism Sound's conversion and clocking expertise developed over many years in products such as the AD-2 and DA-2 and the popular ADA-8XR modular converter family. It offers eight analogue inputs, eight analogue outputs plus S/PDIF and TOSLINK optical digital I/O ports. The optical ports can also be used for ADAT, giving Titan a maximum capability of 18 concurrent input and output channels plus dual stereo headphones.
Titan also features high quality digitally-controlled preamplifiers – four for microphones and two for instruments, which are automatically select when the respective sources are plugged in. An assignable rotary control is provided for monitoring or output level control, which can be applied to any desired set of output channels. In addition, dual stereo headphone outputs are provided, each with its own volume control.
Building on the versatile DSP features of the Prism Sound Orpheus interface, Titan has a powerful built-in DSP engine which provides high precision input and output conditioning functions, as well as a fully-featured mixer for every Titan output channel, including ADAT channels. Each output can be driven with its own zero-latency mix of input channels and DAW feeds, allowing flexible performers’ foldback feeds to be created, as well as stereo or 5.1/7.1 surround monitoring feeds, controlled by the front-panel rotary control if desired. Titan’s high quality analogue outputs are ideally suited for use with analogue summing boxes.
All of Titan’s functions, aside from the front panel monitor and headphone level controls, are controlled from the Titan Control Panel app, which opens on-screen as a separate panel alongside the user’s existing editing software.
Titan will be officially unveiled at AES New York, which runs from October 17th – 20th, 2013. For more information please visit www.prismsound.com or visit Prism Sound’s AES Booth 3032 for a demo.
