Terratec EWS88MT, based on the technology used in the AudioSystem EWS88 MT, the "D" model provides 10 digital audio channels. The optical TOS-Link interface (light pipe) can handle either 8 channels in ADATTM format, or a stereo S/PDIF signal.

While based on the technology used in the AudioSystem EWS88 MT, the "D" model provides 10 digital audio channels. The optical TOS-Link interface (light pipe) can handle either 8 channels in ADAT format, or a stereo S/PDIF signal (up to 24-bit and 96kHz). In addition to standard 16- and 20-bit, state of the art 24-bit resolutions can also be transferred. Also, 2 independent MIDI ports and an S/PDIF interface with coaxial connections (up to 24-bit and 96 kHz) is available to which the ADAT signal can be routed or mixed - the EWS88 D can thus also serve as a converter and/or down-mixer.

Even cascading the EWS systems under one another is possible without a problem. The number of simultaneously available inputs and outputs can thus be increased by the use of up to 3 additional EWS systems with EWS-Connect. An internal connection guarantees the sample-exact synchronization of all the cards at any time.

Of course, the card can also be synchronized with a WordClock signal by the TerraTec EWS ClockWork module. This makes the AudioSystem EWS88 D an ideal complement to a digital project studio. The AudioSystem EWS88 D works straight away with all common audio applications under Windows 95/98 and NT. Drivers for these operating systems are included, as well as support for Steinberg's ASIO 2.0 technology, Microsoft's DirectSound, MME and Nemesys GigaSampler GSIF. And here, too, its uniqueness lies in the details, because the drivers are capable of transmitting 24-bit audio data to the audio software used as a 32-bit data stream. This feature noticeably unburdens the main processor, because unlike with the common packed-byte process, the 24-bit data does not have to first be stacked several times before being transmitted through the 32-bit wide bus.

The software provided leads you directly to the goal of your audio dreams: the expansive control panel permits the routing of the different signal sources and allows synchronization and driver settings. Included in the package: EMAGICs LOGIC 4 for creative music processing with the EWS. In addition, there is SEK'D's popular audio editor Samplitude in a specially adapted version - Mastering features like de-noiser, multiband-EQ, and hum compressor included!
