New Release Merging Audio Device

New Release Merging Audio Device

The Merging Team is proud to announce the release of the new Merging Audio Device.

The Windows driver supplied with Merging interfaces was beginning to show its age and lacked some key features. The entirely new Merging Audio Device also referred as MAD for Windows computers offers new features and significant improvements to the free of charge version along with an additional Infrastructure package for broadcasters.

MAD MORE THAN JUST A DRIVER

This new ASIO RAVENNA/AES67 device supports Multi ASIO Clients, integrates WDM Support and includes a device discovery view. With this new Device Driver multiple applications running ASIO can be launched in parallel on a same system, sharing the same sampling rate and at the same time multiple applications running WDM can be launched in parallel and have their own sampling rate automatically converted to the ASIO sampling rate. This allows monitoring the Windows system sound and any application (such as Spotify, YouTube, PC Sounds files,…) along with any ASIO applications.

ROUTE OR BRIDGE IO's 

The new Merging Audio Device brings more flexibility to your workflows, share ASIO Inputs or ASIO Outputs (outputs of each client are mixed together on given channels) and bridge clients through the MAD bridge channels. Typically, WDM channels can either be sent and mixed to the same Outputs as ASIO, or redirected to the Bridge Channels so they can be routed (and recorded) to any ASIO applications.

THE INFRASTRUCTURE PACK

The addition of the low-cost Infrastructure option offers broadcasters extremely cost-effective, controllable solutions to both the start and end points of any centralised IP network. The opening to data centers and server based installations with Virtual Machine support, the enhanced security provided by ST2022-7 and the additional discovery and control possibilities created by the inclusion of NMOS, reinforce Merging Technologies’ position as a key solution provider for the broadcast and installation industries.

Merging provides the RAVENNA/AES67 solution for the new studio facility

Given a reputation for producing award winning products and with a majority of employees being keen musicians, setting up a recording facility in the new headquarters in Cambridge, MA was a serious endeavour.  To support its purpose as both a testing facility and as a not-for-profit recording and mastering studio, careful equipment choice was paramount.   That task fell to iZotope’s Chief Engineer and Education Director, Jonathan Wyner and renowned acoustician, Francis Manzella.  Critical components in the listening chain are the mic pres and the A/D and D/A converters. The final choice was Merging’s Horus Networked Converters partnered with PMC monitors, Avid S3 EUCON Controllers with an IHSE Draco Tera KVM Matrix, Dangerous Audio compressors and Grace Monitor Controllers.
