Marian Seraph D4 Product Details
Uncompromising digital audio world
The central of the professional fully digital audio studio has been created. With the best components available and only the finest sample rate converters in the circuit, the SERAPH D4 offers an incredible 140dB of dynamics at any point in the signal flow and at any sample rate up to 192kHz. Equipped with a modern PCIe interface and transfer routines that have been specially developed and optimized for high-speed transmission of the best 32-bit audio quality, this sound system can transform a computer into an extremely solid digital recorder - but also into a signal converter or digital mixer. This 16-channel AES/EBU sound system offers a fully MIDI controllable DSP mixer with 64 virtual channels, up to 5 pre/post switchable aux sums, 4 EQs in each channel and a super flexible routing - ideal for a continuous digital and latency-free signal flow.
Thanks to its 4 AES/EBU inputs and outputs and an additional 8 signals via the TDM SyncBus, the SERAPH D4 will be a reliable partner and the right choice for a studio working with many digital signals.
Flexible and Expandable: The TDM SyncBus
Using the TDM SyncBus, you can upgrade the SERAPH D4 with up to 3 more of its kind or with any other SyncBus compatible MARIAN sound systems. E.g. with an 8 channel AES/EBU or analog system. The SyncBus allows all connected clock signals and start/stop information to be exchanged. This unique solution ensures reliable recording of all signals from all participating sound systems. And even more: TDM SyncBus-compatible systems also allow the transfer of up to 8 channels thanks to intelligent bus management. The signals will appear in each mixer of each connected card. But even without another sound system, the TDM SyncBus is a very useful tool. EQs on mix sums> can be realized or signals of a software application can be recorded again. (re-recording)
Fast and reliable: The Multi-client Driver Suite
Each SERAPH system offers support for WindowsTM 7/Vista/XP/Server2003/2000. The true multi-client and continuously improved driver includes ASIO 2 -, GSIF 2 -, WDM with kernel streaming and true, non-emulated DirectSound support for lowest latencies in all software environments. Unlike competing products, the driver allows multiple audio applications to access the sound system simultaneously using the same or different driver interfaces.
Well-structured driver menus and dialogs combined with an easy-to-read and practical-orientated printed manual make this system extremely easy to set up and adapt to the specific needs of the studio. Of course, all settings and even the MIDI assignments as well as the signal flow from mixer and routing can be saved in one file. (Totall Recall)
Powerful and Future-Proof: The Right Decision
The SERAPH D4 is available in 2 versions. For easy integration, the SERAPH D4 with its word clock input will work perfectly in all recording situations. The SERAPH D4 MWX contains an additional board which is equipped with 2 MIDI inputs and outputs as well as a word clock synchronization output. It is automatically recognized after connecting and does not require any extra software installation. The advantages of the MWX are obvious: For example, the 2 MIDI inputs can be used directly for MIDI control of the BEAST by your preferred MIDI controller.
The word clock connectors, on the other hand, are ideal for extended clock circuits that allow independence from the clock signal of the AES/EBU inputs. This means that all external equipment with word clock input can also be synchronized by the SERAPH D4 MWX as clock master. In addition, the high quality sample rate converters of the audio inputs allow unparalleled flexibility when setting up the digital studio. Of course, the SRCs can also be deactivated - for a signal path that is beyond doubt truly pure. A good tool to control the clock signals is the included software status window. This clearly displays all sample rates, the lock status, the status of the sample rate converters and, if applicable, all synchronization errors of all digital input signals. Like every MARIAN sound system, the SERAPH D4 impresses with its simple installation and constantly controlled highest manufacturing quality. Furthermore the SAMPLITUDE PRO X2 Silver Software is included for free with this product.
