Groundbreaking Audio I/O and processing by SSL...
MX4 delivers outstanding performance to demanding ‘inside the box’ users who refuse to compromise on quality. It combines three central system elements; a very high channel count/high quality audio interface – an extremely versatile Software Mixer – and DSP powered plug-ins that provide console grade precision processing with legendary SSL audio characteristics.
* 128 channel MADI Digital Audio Interface
* Multi-client SSL Software Mixer
* DSP Powered SSL processing plug-ins
MX4 is the ideal solution for audio professionals seeking solutions for complex recording and mixing environments. The 128 channel MADI I/O can be combined with SSL Alpha-Link audio format converters, connected directly to suitably equipped consoles, or integrated with Broadcast Routers to deliver a very high channel count alongside uncompromising audio quality. The MX4 flexible mixer architecture, true multi client operation and stunning ‘near zero’ latency creates a powerful system with the versatility to create multiple (or duplicate) multi channel record feeds, to create multiple headphone/artist monitor feeds or to build Mix Minus monitor feeds in Broadcast applications. SSL console grade plug-ins ensure that any system has the precision, power and quality to meet all processing requirements.
The Audio Interface :
* 128 channels of digital audio I/O over fibre optic MADI
* Mac or PC compatible SSL ‘PCIe-Core Audio Pipeline’ drivers
* Multi client divers – multiple audio applications appear in the mixer and access the I/O simultaneously
* Very high channel count, high sample rate recording & playback
* 2 x 64 channel optical MADI ports on half-length PCIe card
* 1x Wordclock Connector (Software controlled as Input or Output)
* Near Zero (4 samples) latency delivers ideal monitoring environment
