MERGING+ANUBIS

Flexibility, power and quality at your fingertips whatever your challenge.

Merging’s 30 years of developments are all concentrated into the Anubis. This compact AD/DA is unique in its configurability to perform your mission without changing the hardware. Included is our new 32bit dual PreAmp topology, incredible headphone amps, D/A converters derived from our years of audiophile experience, all combined with a powerful low-latency mixing engine evolved from our 25 years of DAW design.
Uniquely Modular by Software, Anubis is truly ONE OF A KIND.

A small but astonishingly powerful system controller and interface, [...] with stunningly impressive preamps.

MERGING+ANUBIS – Discover the Anubis hardware with the introductionary video.

Anubis has two variants: MERGING+ANUBIS and MERGING+ANUBIS SPS. SPS offers an additional network connection for either redundancy or to eliminate an external switch, while Anubis offers an EtherCon connector for extra connectivity reliability. Your choice of model depends on your usage profile. As with other Merging products, both versions are offered in Pro or Premium. If 192kHz is the limit for you, go for Pro. If you are into true Hi-Res Audio and work in DXD/384kHz or in DSD, you will need Premium.

Whichever flavor you choose, you get the same beautiful unibody case crafted from a single piece of aluminium with the same multi-touch display with all the same control possibilities. ONE OF A KIND – whatever the flavor


MISSIONS - MODULAR APPLICATIONS

From the initial recording through to the final master, there are specific ‘missions’ that require precision and control. MERGING+ANUBIS gives you complete control to choose the ‘mission’ application to accomplish each stage - effortlessly.

If your mission of the day is to create a great mix, you need to be in complete control of your monitoring: reference monitors, nearfields, headphones, sources, surround mix, downmix, etc., so you will be in the Monitor Mission. If your mission is to record the band or rehearse for the next gig, you will be in the Music Mission controlling the extraordinarily powerful ultra-low-latency mixer and feeding individual cue mixes to each musician. Anubis gives you that “Mission Control” in a single, compact device that has unrivalled capabilities defined by the software application. MERGING+ANUBIS allows the user to choose the Mission Controller app that fits the task. ONE OF A KIND

USE CASES

Example setups with MERGING+ANUBIS

The Monitor Mission mode can be configured according to your needs. Here are some diagram examples typically used in a professional studio setup. Anubis small size also means you can bring your control room with you when on location.

Device Connectivity.

The Anubis interface has two analog high quality combo connectors, and an additional two front line/instrument analog inputs. On the output side, you get two gold plated XLR and two TRS jacks. In addition, there are two independent stereo headphone jacks with the best quality amplification we have ever done. There is also MIDI I/O or GPIO and the all-important AES67/RAVENNA connector.
