Prism Sound will be exhibiting at AES Amsterdam with its newly upgraded Orpheus Firewire interface, which they say now allows users to convert their audio inputs to ADAT outputs and vice versa.


We're told that users will be able to connect the new and improved Orpheus directly to a variety of DAWs, including Pro Tools LE.

According to Prism Sound, the upgraded Orpheus units incorporate an AV/C model that behaves as ADAT Send & Return, but also works when the Firewire cable is connected. This apparently provides users operating in DAW mode with pure audio conversion.

Launched in 2007, Orpheus is a 1U, 19-inch rackmount 192kHz-capable unit, offering eight simultaneous balanced analogue inputs, four line-level jack ins and four auto-sensing mic/line Neutrik combo jacks that will accept either jack or XLR connectors. Built-in mic preamps allow the signal at the mic-level inputs to be boosted by up to 60dB (in 1dB increments), and each analogue input has its own adjustable patented Prism Sound Overkiller built in, to prevent signal overloads before the A-D conversion stage.
