M-audio DELTA 101010x10 PCI Based Digital Audio System
Just keeping things up-to-date at Dancetech by adding this new product from MIDIMAN/D-MAN in Germany... Previously for multiple I/O use MIDIMAN offered their 4 In X 4 OUT card the 2044 whuich used a cluster cable breakout with 8 1/4 jack sockets.... Well now here's MIDIMANS entry to the 8 channel In/OUT marketplace, The DELTA-IOIO, slated for a SEPTEMBER 99 release, and it has to be said... MIDIMAN usually deliver well-spec'd, no-frills quality kit, so this should be a very interesting product...
The new DELTA offers MIDIMANS own rack I/O converter as opposed to going with ADAT compatible output... personally, I think I'd buy into ADAT complient interfaces now as they offer so many possible add-on devices/routing... You can go with any of the currect ADAT complient interfaces, or route digital outputs to ADAT complient mixers for direct digital mixing... whatever... The upside to non-ADAT kit is that manufacturers who offer 'All-in-one' solutions can control the whole design process for complete compatibility... Anyways, that is the route MIDIMAN have choosen.. and the DELTA-IOIO comes with an external rack-unit converter offering 8 X (24bit/96k compatible) balanced or unbalanced analog In/OUT & word-clock on the main rack-unit, as well as S/PDIF connectors on the card... the whole lot links up with a multi-pin connector cable like the Event cards and is Full-Duplex, meaning you can playback say 8 analog outputs, whilst recording IN to a track from your S/PDIF source or say record analog streo in off 2 inputs whilst also sending out a master from the S/PDIF OUT to DAT - whatever... Full-Duplex......
Having Full duplex with say a Cubase VST or Logic system means you can allocate say one output pair to your main analog monitor out, S/PDIF to say the DAT, and you could also allocate I/O channles to feed external FX processors etc...
You also get MIDI IN/OUT on the main rack unit with handy MIDI activity lights for IN/OUT signal testing... Nice touch, cos it means there is no possible sync probelms which you might get using a multi-I/O system with sepearte MIDI port....
Finally to round things off, the main unit has an extrnal isolated power supply, (read: wall-wart) which MIDIMAN claim helps to isolate power noise problems from the main unit... Well, here's the spec's as quoted by MIDIMAN... Looks like a nice unit, fully complient with the currect bandwidths offered by the latest sequencer/audio programmes & editors...
