A marvel

Prism Sound Lyra 2Published on 11/13/14 at 03:35

I used to mix ITB and do mastering.

It is connected via USB to a core i7 iMac mid-2011 (ref 12.2).

I needed a card that has the best possible sound, and including a minimum of unnecessary options.

I was attracted by its technical characteristics, and the fact that it has the bare minimum I need 2 inputs line / inst / mic pre-amps with copies, which occasionally allow me to connect directly to a vinyl turntable to sample and archive. 4 outputs: 2 for 2 for the monitoring and analog processing chain.

I use the Toslink input to listen to music through the sound output of the iMac. I still am using I / O ADAT but I know that they allow me to add 8 tracks to 44.1kHz for send /...…

I used to mix ITB and do mastering.

It is connected via USB to a core i7 iMac mid-2011 (ref 12.2).

I needed a card that has the best possible sound, and including a minimum of unnecessary options.

I was attracted by its technical characteristics, and the fact that it has the bare minimum I need 2 inputs line / inst / mic pre-amps with copies, which occasionally allow me to connect directly to a vinyl turntable to sample and archive. 4 outputs: 2 for 2 for the monitoring and analog processing chain.

I use the Toslink input to listen to music through the sound output of the iMac. I still am using I / O ADAT but I know that they allow me to add 8 tracks to 44.1kHz for send / return, for example, or an analog adder with its own converters.

UTILIZATION

Latency by using VSTi is very low.

The return of the AD-DA conversion latency is 25 samples.

I use it mainly with Pro Tools 11 Ableton Live 9 and Logic Pro X.

The drivers are very stable. I had a few bugs with the console at first, but they were quickly resolved. No problems at all since. Prism support is impeccable.

GETTING STARTED

Installation is a breeze. Setup is easy. Mixer in a very simple appearance is absolutely dreadful and allows complete flexibility of routing.

The documentation is comprehensive and clear.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for over a year. I love the ergonomics and its apparent simplicity.

But mostly I love the sound. The record is very clear, detailed and accurate in all the frequency range.

What struck me the most was the rendering of surgical stereo image. placement of elements of a mix is ​​now unambiguous. These mixes are also very well rendered on other delivery systems.

The price / quality ratio is consistent. I tried other cards Advent me decide: RME Fireface and UAD Apollo. Lyra is clearly in the category above. In its range I have not compared with the Apogee Symphony, the Lynx Hilo, or Lavry Blue, but I think it's more so a matter of taste than performance.

As long as the card is placed in a treaty environment, and broadcast on the monitor speakers to choose from, we get an audio record of the highest quality.

This is exactly what I expected. I certainly would do this choice today because I think there is no better now and that Lyra meets my needs perfectly.

Preamps and high-end converters used with Protools 10 in the studio with an Imac, a TC FINALIZER connected AES EBU to sleep sound in Protools, a TC Reverb 4000 ADAT and EVENTDE ECLIPSE back online for other effects. Great to have a hell of a setup.

UTILIZATION

Extra stability with Protools cubase mac and PC are not easily put into a buffer 32 ac current iMac for recording and there is a monitoring system that reduces latency even more thanks to the internal DSP card. This card will have to changed very easily.

GETTING STARTED

Installing the driver on the site DOWNLOADED Prism Sound moves with classic ease the configuration logic, well done, the manual is in pdf (trees are saved)...…

GETTING STARTED

Installing the driver on the site DOWNLOADED Prism Sound moves with classic ease the configuration logic, well done, the manual is in pdf (trees are saved) The mixer for various routing is super nice to use i / o ADAT 8 digit cannaux or AES, SPDIF, activation 48v, low cut, selection LINE, MIC, etc. INS ... we just save the settings used for each session that is performed.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 days before the machine I worked with Alphalink Madi SSL, RME DS8 Pro, Lynx Aurora 16 Lynx Hilo ... This machine is a marvel of musicianship, deep and warm bass clarity with a huge stereo! I took my foot to listen to my favorite songs and I rediscovered, I did not know more than my headphones sound as good ... But what sound! Above the machine that I mentioned above is undeniable to mix ITB or to mastering ...
Not only did I do it again this choice, but I'll do it again because I have three small studios and I do not want to work with it. For now anyway ... The machine's weight (there's gear is on) the LED VU meter for are gorgeous we would have liked it to be more of course ... The machine is a great strength.

Small bémole the big wheel and pretty can not be used to adjust the level of inputs (outputs only)

With this machine it is about to take pleasure in this mix is ​​really a feast for the ears. With a good headset and / or good speakers and good sound insulation we fly!
