PRISM SOUND LYRA1 Interface Description

PRISM SOUND is probably best known for a d and converters such as the venerable Ada-8xr Orpheus, which already provides solution those needing fire wire interface. It is the result of years research and development into digital audio conversion extensive dialogue with PRISM Sounds customers. They are based on the Orpheus audio path and clock circuitry, but in a smaller package for those who don't need eight channels of analogue I o. Items may be subject to a restocking fee up with this in mind, we have taken great care make sure that not only is the RMS Thad n figure very good, but lyra noise and distortion spectrum beyond reproach provides most transparent listening experience.

We will then either accept, decline, or counter accordingly. For low-latency fold back or monitoring to headphone main outputs, each output pair 1-2, 3-4, digital out the can optionally be driven from built-in DPs mixer with an individual local mix of any selection inputs through controller applet. Signal path analogue and digital input channels are available as inputs for your audio workstation software through the host computers driver. We are confident that customers using the new lyra converter will agree it Sounds as good looks.

This experience means that lyra is well-behaved both as a computer peripheral and an audio processor. Lyra offers up to four monitoring outputs, digital inputs and outputs as stereo aes3 IRS pdif 8 channels of I o on the ad at optical format, plus headphones. 1 networking standard. However, with the low-latency PRISM SOUND DPs mixer, worst-case delay through a d and path is only 0.

The optical digital I o ports on lyra 2 can also be configured as ad at. Unsurpassed jitter rejection in the 1990s PRISM SOUND pioneered testing of sampling and interface as a result our digital audio products deliver. Since lyra also includes the full suite of famous PRISM SOUND 'Sn's' noise shape rs, you can reduce to 16-bits for CD at mastering-house quality. Alto music will only ship to the address Paypal, and must be a Paypal confirmed.

Other connections include word clock sync I o on NBC connectors lyra 2 only. There are two models lyra 1 and 2. The design team has gone to great lengths minimise noise and interference, in particular hum. The over killer threshold automatically follows operating line-up level selection 4dbu or -10dbv.

This control changes the operating voltage and channel status format is complemented by two in-line adaptor leads that provide external XLR connections for aes3 devices. Lyra 1 supports sample rate conversion on the input only. The lyra family of audio interfaces offers PRISM SOUND performance at its most affordable ever.

Lyra provides 'console quality' local mixing - each output has its own independent mixer, with channel strips for all inputs and workstation feeds, complete fad er, pan balance pot, solo mute buttons, full metering. Please see photos. Lyra is based on the new arm cortex-based processor design which offers class-compliant usb and Ethernet AB interfacing, plus DPs local mixing capacity beyond that of present Orpheus platform. If a specific listing of ours does not include the make an offer button, we are then currently accepting anything less than bin price for that particular item.

We will consider your offer as soon it is received. We accept Paypal. The last word we believe that lyra delivers exactly what our personal studio customers have asked for - all performance of a PRISM SOUND product in dedicated usb unit handles line, microphone and instrument inputs with good fold back monitoring capabilities, yet at an even more accessible price tag. Sample rate conversion and noise shaping the digital output is equipped with four PRISM SOUND Sn's noise-shaping curves includes Sounds renowned synchronous sample-rate lyra 2, allowing outputs to various external devices at other sampling rates.

Another aspect of the traditional PRISM SOUND converter that is retained was clocking - its just as important analogue-path considerations SOUND -wise. The controller software opens on-screen as a separate panel alongside your existing editing. Lyra has the same excellent mic amps as Orpheus with software-controlled gain in 1db steps, switchable phantom power, a 20db pad - and very low noise distortion. On lyra 2, inputs 1 and 2 can be microphone, instrument or line.

Level is maintained if one leg grounded. PRISM SOUND has always made extensive use of precise software calibration techniques in its converters - pots and tweaks are unreliable, so there none. Lyra draws on PRISM Sounds years of experience in developing digital audio products, including its range test equipment, adopted by a wide variety clients across the industry from pro-audio to consumer electronics. 99 prior to shipping charges and or sales tax when applicable will require a recipient signature upon delivery.

Flexible inputs and outputs our professional users wanted a highly integrated solution with stereo serving as line, instrument or microphone inputs, line that could be used for monitoring, mastering fold back to performers. For an additional charge, overnight or upgraded shipping may be available to buyers in the USA. Please do not send a message or call alto music in regards to best offers. Support over the years, PRISM Sounds reputation for audio quality has been matched by its after-sales and technical advice.

Lyra's analogue inputs support various capabilities. Shipping policy buyer pays shipping-we ship via FedEx or ups if shipped to NYSE we must charge sales tax. For windows users Asia and edm drivers are provided, while mac OS x 10. Digital mixer our customers also identified a need for unit that could provide low latency fold back to performers, particularly when tracking and overdubbing.

Lyra is easy to connect your computer and outboard gear. Contact details return policy refunds are issued within 30 days of the date customers order is received. Alto music reserves the right to refuse any return if it appears item has been used. There is a very small residual delay through the d and conversion process in fold back path, mostly from filters used for decimation interpolation.

In answer to this need, lyra has a built-in digital mixer that can be configured from the host computer provide fold back feeds performers, each with their own stereo mix of workstation playback and any inputs. Reliability is vitally important in professional recording. 4 or later, lyra interfaces directly to core audio. The co-axial digital I o port can be switched in lyra 2 controller applet bet weens pdif and aes3 formats.

Similarly, analogue and digital outputs stereo headphone can be played independently. No-compromise, full PRISM SOUND audio quality lyra makes no compromises on. 5ms and is significantly less at higher sampling rates - to put this into perspective, its equivalent standing approximately 15cm 6 inches further from a speaker generally reckoned be small enough not problematic. There are no warranties for the following items: strings drum heads drum sticks best offer policy offers - please submit directly using make an button.

There are absolutely no refunds for the following items: software if unsealed or registered sheet music books DVDs videos Cd's harmonicas, mouthpieces, ear buds earphones headphones, any item that may come in contact with mouth, ears nose. These inputs are auto-sensing with software over-ride. The only answer is to provide local fold back mixing in interface. Obviously there are situations where the round-trip latency needs to be really short, like in overdubbing.

Looking to the future, low-latency synchronised networked audio and video is now becoming a reality with implementation of AB bridging, an Eire analogue inputs have individually-selectable PRISM SOUND over killer peak limiters built in, just as on higher-priced Ada-8xr Orpheus, catch those fast transients. However, the flexibility and versatility of Ada-8xr comes with a higher price tag, reflecting fact that no other interface provides such exceptional audio performance or can work directly into pro tools core processing cards, as well running concurrent DDS processor fire wire. Lyra has the same no-compromise analogue front and back ends as its brother Orpheus, with fully-balanced-throughout architecture isolation barriers protecting from digital computer interference. All of the analogue circuits have galvanic isolation, while units electronically balanced I o allows it to handle common mode interference sources as well enabling trouble-free connection unbalanced equipment.

New merchandise carries the original warranty issued by manufacturer. Aside from the monitor and headphone level controls, everything else is operated solely lyra controller application. Any items purchased at a total exceeding for both mac and PC platforms, there is controller application to configure the unit control its built-in mixer other functions. All analogue inputs are electronically balanced with automatic unbalanced operation.

PRISM SOUND digital audio products lock up fast and re-generate ultra-stable clock outputs. The question of latency in computer interfaces, especially usb and fire wire boxes, is an important one. Over killers are ideal for percussive SOUND s, particularly drums, where headroom can be a problem. Although the units outputs will mainly be used for monitoring or fold back, fact that they are of such high quality makes them suitable a range other applications as insertion points, analogue summing driving mastering chains.
