Prism Titan - Premium USB 2.0 Audio Interface
The Prism Titan is a USB2 audio interface for both Mac and PC featuring 8 analogue and ten digital inputs, 10 analogue and digital outputs, 4 high-end microphone preamps, low-latency monitoring, dual headphone amps and premium AD/DA throughout.
The 4 Mic preamps are software controlled with 1dB gain steps, switchable phantom power and 20dB pads, and each of the analogue inputs feature Prism Overkillers, a soft limiter to control transient overloads. There are also two high-impedance instrument inputs of the first two channels.
- Channels 1 & 2: Microphone, instrument or line
- Channels 3 & 4: Microphone or line
- Channels 5 - 8: Line inputs
Digital connections are on both RCA/phono and TOSLINK. The RCA can handle stereo S/PDIF and AES3 via an adapter. The TOSLINK connector provides optical 8 channel ADAT.
The Titan features ten analogue line outputs, the first eight are found on the rear whilst the final two outputs function as a dedicated stereo headphone output which is shared by two headphone amps, each with their own front panel volume control. All these outputs mean the Titan can be fully integrated into your studio set up allowing the use of outboard processing or even setting up for 7.1 surround monitoring.
The DSP driven digital mixer provides users with an ultra low-latency monitoring solution. Artists can monitor direct trough this mixer when tracking and avoid any of the latency incurred by monitoring via the DAW.
The Prism Sound Titan also has an MDIO expansion slot enabling it to accommodate other digital interfaces such as Pro Tools HDX and AES multichannel options.
