Lexicon IïONIX FW810S FireWire Audio Interface

Wednesday October 22, 2008. 10:58 AM, by Nantho Computer Hardware > Lexicon
Computer Hardware : Lexicon I•ONIX FW810S FireWire Audio Interface - macmusicLexicon, a Harman International Company, is introducing its I•ONIX FW810S FireWire Audio Interface with integrated channel strip processing.

This new recording interface offers the highest quality 96kHz sampling, coupled with dbx high-voltage, ultra-low noise mic pre's and dynamics. Featuring built in dbx Type IV conversion; the I•ONIX FW810S will preserve the wide dynamic range of the analog recording even when input levels get too high. This allows for more headroom, capturing the subtle details in high-level signals instead of hard-clipping them.

The I•ONIX FW810S's software mixer includes a dbx compressor, limiter, gate, and EQ on each channel, and lets users adjust levels and apply dbx dynamics for mixing and fine-tuning recordings in real time with zero latency. The unit also has the ability to save and load up to five monitor mixes one for the main mix, and up to four for individual band members. The mixer outputs can also be used to incorporate external effects gear.

The unit also features the new Pantheon II reverb plug-in which continues this legacy and delivers that "Lexicon Sound" Also included is a hardware monitor reverb for zero latency monitor mixing. This allows the performer to put a monitor reverb on their monitor mix without having the latency of monitoring through a reverb plug-in in the DAW.

The software suite operates on Windows and Mac platforms and includes Steinberg's Cubase, Toontrack EZdrummer Lite, and Lexicon Pantheon II reverb plug-in.

Features :

- dbx high-voltage, ultra-low noise mic pre's on all eight channels
- dbx dynamics (compressor, limiter, gate, EQ) on all eight analog input channels
- Two front panel XLR + 14" combi-jacks for mic/line or instrument inputs
