Horus might be one of the world’s most sonically transparent Mic Pre’s.
Horus might also be one of the most phenomenal AD/DA boxes on the market.
Horus could very well be the ultimate answer to anyone wanting Analogue/AES/MADI interconnectivity in the room they work in. It is a revolution in “bang for buck” technology and is set to become the defacto audio I/O device for the media industries...
But in reality Horus is much, much more:
Using RAVENNA technology, Horus brings to the table the possibility to interconnect your entire facility using nothing more than a standard RJ45 connector. Once in RAVENNA mode, the Horus box simply becomes a node on a network, one that can be instantly called to be an input, an output, or a combination of both. Whether you are in broadcast, TV and film, CD/SACD mastering, studio or live music recording, live events, theatres, museums, cruise ships, or any industry where you need audio to get from A to B (or A to B and C, or C to A and part of D, E, and F!).
Using standard network connections, switches and connectors, Horus and other RAVENNA-enabled devices can be placed on a network and interconnected in any way you want.

Features of Interest
The ability to choose the amount of I/O that each Horus unit is capable of saves money without diminishing the level of quality. Choose to add any of the option modules to your Horus and create the ultimate audio interface for your studio, whatever the size. Once the Horus is fully loaded with option cards, it is capable of achieving an astonishing, simultaneous 176 inputs and 178 outputs @1FS.
Horus has been designed so that any input can be routed to any amount of outputs as required.. at the same time. With comprehensive routing pages accessible both locally on the touchscreen and by remote access using a standard web browser, Horus is your answer to signal flow management in your studio.
Pyramix users are of course our first love, but we are offering any DAW/NLE user the opportunity to take advantage of RAVENNA by using the ASIO (PC) / CoreAudio (MAC) drivers bundled with Horus. So, even if your tool of choice was not RAVENNA ready, it is now.
For power-conscious users, Horus has been meticulously designed in order to keep consumption at an incredible minimum. A fully loaded Horus running all channels of phantom power will only draw about 60W, making it more affordable to run than your kitchen lights.
The RAVENNA RJ45 connection on the Horus allows for not only audio, but also control and sync information to flow through as well. Send timecodes, wordclock and even GPIO directly to the Horus unit over the same network as your audio. The Ravenna port even provides for the remote control access to the configuration and entire routing of the unit itself!
Support for: LTC/MIDI/Video Ref/WCK
Option Cards available:
Separate input and output cards allow you to customize your interface to exactly what you need for each application. Choose from standard, 192kHz capable or extended use DXD/DSD capable Inputs and outputs to make sure you capture every sound with the greatest accuracy.
These remotely controlled Mic/Line Input cards have set a new benchmark in analogue circuitry design. Available in models that work up to 192kHz (AD8D) and DXD/DSD256 (AD8DP)
The DA8 (up to 192kz) and the DA8P (up to DSD) have consistently shown in testing to be the quietest multichannel D/A conversion modules available anywhere.
The MADI Expansion card (MADM - Multimode / MADS - Singlemode) doubles the total MADI channel count to 128 inputs and 128 outputs @1FSIOM-HORUS-RSGP (In Development)
For installations where extended control is needed, Horus owners can add 8xGPIO and RS-422 (Sony 9pin) connectivity with this easy to install option
