Germany (February 10, 2015)—Mutec is shipping its new MC-1.2, a USB audio converter intended for professional and home recording studios.
According to the manufacturer, the MC-1.2 enables for the first time bi-directional conversions between USB audio streams, AES3, AES3id and S/P-DIF signals. Signals received at the USB port are converted to five digital audio outputs simultaneously, which allows the connection of multiple receivers at the computer. When selecting one of the digital audio inputs, the signal received is converted to an USB audio stream and sent into the computer. This enables the connection of bi-directional signal exchanging devices to the computer.
The MC-1.2 also works as USB isolator to decouple noisy computers or music servers from audio equipment. Multiple stages of independent ultra-low noise power supplies drive individual sections of the circuitry in order to improve isolation.
The MC-1.2 can be run with its internal power supply for stationary use or alternatively powered through the USB port when on the go.
