Superior, WI (February 7, 2005)–Crane Song’s new Egret is an 8 channel D/A converter with a stereo mixer, expected to ship in late spring 2005. The stereo mixer has level, cue send, and a pan control on each channel. Each channel also contains a solo and mute button. Egret has a master level control, a master cue send control and a headphone output with it’s own level control.
Each channel on the Egret has a TRS insert and direct balanced outputs. The D/A converters support sample rates up to 192K and have sample rate converters on each channel for input jitter reduction. There is a front panel switch to disable the SRC for cases where low latency is required. The converters can also be used independently, even at different sample rates.
