Prism Sound: Titan and Atlas support a world of sound12 September 2014
Multichannel audio interfaces Titan and Atlas are making their European debut at IBC.
Via a USB interface, Titan and Atlas offer analogue and digital I/O for Mac or Windows at sample rates up to 192kHz. In addition, both units feature the new MDIO interface expansion slot, which can be used to expand its connectivity, for example by adding a direct connection to Pro Tools|HDX systems.
Titan has four microphone inputs, while Atlas has eight and is aimed at multitrack recording applications. Each offers eight analogue output channels, up to 10 digital output channels and stereo headphone outputs, to play 20 different channels. For low-latency foldback or monitoring to headphones or main outputs, each output pair can optionally be driven from the built-in digital signal processing mixer with an individual local mix of any selection of inputs through the supplied controller applet.
Atlas and Titan can also operate in standalone mode using their ADAT or co-axial digital I/O connections. Once set up using the Atlas or Titan controller applet, each unit can be disconnected from the host computer and used independently. The units retain all settings when powered down. On both units the co-axial digital I/O port can also be switched in the controller applet between S/PDIF and AES3 formats.
Both Atlas and Titan are designed with Prism Sound’s latest CleverClox clocking technology, designed to remove jitter from any reference sync source before it is used as a conversion timebase.
