Merging is extremely proud to offer a native connection to RAVENNA networks for all of the audio software range. Whether you are running Pyramix Virtual Studio or the Ovation Media Server/Sequencer, MassCore or Native, users can now enjoy the power of audio over standard networks.

Overview

Horus & Hapi For Pyramix

No matter what your workflow, Horus & Hapi offer Pyramix users the possibility to improve the result in every aspect of their work. From sonic quality and flexibility to unbelievable portability and reliability, Horus & Hapi for Pyramix have set the new standard for DAW interfacing.

Horus & Hapi for Ovation

Any live event, AV installation, broadcast playout or theatre production will benefit from the power of Horus & Hapi. Connect multiple playout devices to a single Horus unit, or route a single playout device to multiple Horus or Hapi units, allowing for saved budget, increased flexibility and of course, the sonic precision that comes with every Horus and Hapi device.

How Horus & Hapi Connect to MassCore

To harness all of the power that MassCore provides, Merging had to fine tune a specific interface card to manage the job. Using the NET-MSC-GBEX1 card allows users of MassCore to gain access to every single channel of one or more Horus units and multiple Hapi units

Requirements

  • MassCore ready computer (see pc config here)
  • a Free PCIe slot (NET-MSC-GBEX card requires a x1 slot or bigger)
  • Gb Network Equipment which is PTP2 and QoS enabled

Features of the MassCore Connection

  • 256 I/O (256 inputs and 256 outputs) @ 1FS - 44.1 / 48 kHz
  • 96 I/O (96 inputs and 96 outputs) @ 4FS - 176.4 / 192 kHz
  • 32 I/O (32 inputs and 32 outputs) @ DXD and DSD256
  • embedded sync (LTC/MTC) information

How Horus & Hapi Connect to Native

Horus & Hapi connect to the Merging Native platform using ASIO technology. Providing 64 I/O and an astonishing sonic quality, using Horus & Hapi with Native solutions is a brilliant way to get all the power and precision of Horus in a more cost-effective solution.

Requirements

  • Minimum spec computer (see pc config here)
  • Mac OS 10.10.X or Windows 7 (64bit)
  • Application must be ASIO (PC) or CoreAudio (Mac) compliant
  • A free Gb Ethernet port
  • Or use the NET-INT-GBEX1 card using a free PCIe x1 slot
  • Gb Network Equipment which is PTP2 and QoS enabled

Features of the ASIO / Core Audio Connection

  • 128 I/O (128 inputs and 128 outputs) @ 1FS - 44.1 / 48 kHz
  • 64 I/O (64 inputs and 64 outputs) @ 2FS - 88.2 / 96 kHz
  • 32 I/O (32 inputs and 32 outputs) @ 4FS - 176.4 / 192 kHz
  • 16 I/O (16 inputs & 16 outputs) @ 8FS - DXD / DSD
