AudioScience, a kingpin of professional audio cards, has a new tuner card out.
The ASI8821 is a PCI Express slot card capable of handling up to eight tuner modules on one card. The card is available in four- or eight-tuner designs. FM tuners include RDS/RBDS monitoring as well.
Each tuner is independently operable so that multiple sample rates, 8–48 kHz, can be handled on each card. Recording formats are PCM, MPEG Layer II and MP3.
Drivers for Windows, XP, 7 and Server 2003/2008 are available along with Linux. An external antenna feed allows for improved reception.
The card is compatible with AudioScience’s ASIControl and ASIMixer card controller software.
