Merging Technologies will come to the show Monday with version 5.1 of its Pyramix digital audio workstation.
It offers simultaneous playback and recording of audio tracks at resolutions ranging from 16-bit, 44.1 kHz to DXD (352 kHz) and DSD for SACD production. Recording and processing power are provided by the Mykerinos PCI-format DSP card, at least one of which lies at the center of non-native Pyramix systems, the company says.
Merging also is announcing the sixth generation of the Mykerinos line, the MYK-X series cards, with a range of associated I/O daughter cards.
The MYK-X30 offers 1.2 GFlops of peak processing power available with a memory bandwidth of 1600 megabytes per second. The company says it is suitable for supplying the DSP power required to drive the multi-channel recording and real-time mixing, panning and processing operations in typical Pyramix systems. It also is compact at half the length of a PCI Express card. With one of the its associated optional I/O daughter cards attached, it takes up one PCIe slot in the host PC.
Version 5.1 includes support for the new DSP hardware, allowing users running Pyramix systems based around the Mykerinos MYK-X series cards to record more simultaneous tracks of audio, while playing back others if required. Pyramix can now record PCM audio at any sample rate from 44.1 kHz to 384 kHz and 1-bit DSD audio at 2.82 MHz.
