Live recording for large scale events is all about reliability, so for us Pyramix was the only choice

Mike Hatch, Floating Earth - UK

Pyramix MassCore + Horus

When reliability and sonic quality are an absolute requirement, choose the system that the most respected and busy live recordists in the industry are using. Pyramix MassCore + Horus deliver the perfect combination of quality, flexibility, cost and footprint that bring users an unparalleled ability to capture a performance that will only happen once.

Pyramix Native Backup Recorder

For the ultimate in security, use Pyramix Native as backup to the main system. Using the native RAVENNA AoIP connection, Pyramix Native can receive a completely redundant multi-track stream of your event by simply plugging all the devices into a standard, off the shelf switch! Once appearing as a node on a RAVENNA network, Pyramix Native can make sure you don’t lose your chance at capturing the performance, even if the unthinkable happens.

We know this is the cleanest mic preamplifier and the most discriminating converter we have ever designed.
