Hopewell Junction, NY (May 18, 2009)–Metric Halo has launched its ULN-8, an audio processing converter and interface.
The unit features archival-grade converters, digitally controlled ULN (ultra low-noise, high-headroom) preamps, dedicated analog-domain sends and returns, analog domain 7.1 monitor controller, AES interfacing, front-panel control with metering all built atop Metric Halo’s 5th-generation 2d processing, mixing and FireWire interfacing.
By implementing all the functions of a complete audio front end in a single package, the ULN-8 reportedly is able to provide power and quality in a lightweight, low-power consumption, single RU hardware unit. This integration provides benefits to the owner in the form of reduced cabling (lower cost, weight and less opportunity for failure), weight, power consumption and cost.
With everything needed to record, mix, process and master audio (just add a DAW of choice and transducers), the ULN-8 is a one-stop solution for recording, editing, mixing and mastering suites. Even if you are using a DAW or recording system that does not support the ULN-8 FireWire interface, the unit’s standalone operation and standard AES and analog interface allow one to use it as the Audio Front End and Monitor Controller for Pro Tools, standalone and PC-based recording systems.
