Prism Sound's new Titan multi-channel audio interface is designed to offer recording professionals quality analogue and digital I/O for Mac or Windows PC at sample rates up to 192kHz via a simple USB interface.
“As with every product we release, Titan came about as a direct result of customer feedback,” says Graham Boswell, sales and marketing director of Prism Sound. “For some time now, customers using external hardware devices such as Pro Tools™ have wanted easy access to Prism Sound’s high quality audio interfaces, but at an affordable price. Titan is our answer. It offers all the award-winning features of the competitively priced Orpheus but with the USB functionality that users want.”
In addition to the USB host interface, Titan is the first Prism Sound device to feature the new MDIO interface expansion slot, which can be used to expand Titan’s connectivity, for example by adding a direct connection to Pro Tools|HDX systems.
The unit offers eight analogue inputs, eight analogue outputs plus S/PDIF and TOSLINK optical digital I/O ports. The optical ports can also be used for ADAT, giving Titan a maximum capability of 18 concurrent input and output channels plus dual stereo headphones.
Titan also features high quality digitally-controlled preamplifiers – four for microphones and two for instruments, which are automatically selected when the respective sources are plugged in. An assignable rotary control is provided for monitoring or output level control, which can be applied to any desired set of output channels.
Titan has a powerful built-in DSP engine which provides high precision input and output conditioning functions, as well as a fully-featured mixer for every output channel, including ADAT channels. Each output can be driven with its own zero-latency mix of input channels and DAW feeds, allowing flexible performers’ foldback feeds to be created, as well as stereo or 5.1/7.1 surround monitoring feeds, controlled by the front-panel rotary control if desired. Titan’s high quality analogue outputs are ideally suited for use with analogue summing boxes.
All of Titan’s functions, aside from the front panel monitor and headphone level controls, are controlled from the Titan Control Panel app, which opens on-screen as a separate panel alongside the user’s existing editing software.
