German pro audio manufacturer DirectOut will be presenting its new compact audio processor, PRODIGY.MP at ISE 2020.
PRODIGY.MP is designed to address many applications in live sound, broadcast, installation, and recording. DirectOut has combined the modular design of the PRODIGY series with FPGA-based signal processing, giving users access to matrix mixers, summing busses and flex channels with EQ, dynamics, delay, and external plugins. Flex channels can be configured as input/pre faders or output/post faders.
The product can simultaneously host two network audio modules that support Dante, RAVENNA/AES67 or SoundGrid, allowing for seamless interoperability between different network formats. For example, channel-by-channel connections between a Dante and a RAVENNA network are possible.
Two MADI slots can be equipped with BNC, SC or SFP modules. Four eight-channel converter slots complete the audio I/Os with analogue line level, microphone and AES3 module options and increase the channel capacity to a total of 416 inputs/420 outputs. It also includes comprehensive sync management and sample rate conversion for MADI I/Os and AES3 I/Os.
The globcon control software offers full control of the PRODIGY series and many other DirectOut devices, featuring snapshot management with selective recall scope-sets. It also supports trigger management which includes OSC and MIDI for control e.g. from a tablet device. The power of PRODIGY.MP is extended by accessing Smaart from Rational Acoustics via API.
The PRODIGY series and globcon will be shown at the DirectOut stand 7-V224 at the ISE show.
