Sound Engineering, Sonic Excellence. New Products for 2011 Hono™ CobraNet Fixed AudioScience’s Hono™ CobraNet® Fixed series has 12 pre-configured devices for the most popular I/O combinations. These networked audio interfaces are built in a 1U rackmount format and provide up to 16 channels of CobraNet receive and transmit. See page 4 for details.

Hono™ CobraNet Mini AudioScience’s Hono™ CobraNet Mini series has 4 “smaller” channel count devices. These units are perfect for applications requiring a small quantity of additional inputs or outputs to an existing CobraNet system. See page 9 for details.

Macintosh OS X Drivers AudioScience’s Macintosh® driver supports low latency multichannel recording and playback on a selected number of adapter models, and makes these features available to any Mac OS X application that supports Core Audio. The AudioScience Macintosh driver is compatible with Mac OS X releases starting from Snow Leopard® onwards, including the upcoming Lion® and later releases.

ASI5211 Production Sound Card The ASI5211 is the PCI Express (PCIe) version of our ASI5111 adapter. The ASI5211 is designed for use in radio broadcast production, and offers two stereo record streams from either a balanced analog input or an AES/EBU digital input and four stereo play streams mixed to both a balanced analog output and an AES/EBU digital output. Also included is a microphone input with low noise pre-amp and a 48V phantom supply. Additionally, the ASI5211 makes available two opto inputs and two relay outputs via a second bracket attached to the ASI5211 using a 10-pin ribbon cable. See page 16 for details.

2011 Hono™ CobraNet 12 new products for networked audio

2011


– Network Audio Interfaces In today’s networked audio transport systems, there are numerous requirements for various input and output combinations. One location of your audio network may need to capture 16 microphone signals, while another area may only require that 2, 4 or possibly 8 channels of audio be converted back to the analog world. There may be locations in your networked audio system where AES/EBU inputs and outputs are the ticket. Whatever your need, the Hono™ CobraNet™ Series from AudioScience provides the largest variety of I/O combinations in the networked audio transport industry today, period.

These devices have been purposely designed to compliment and fully integrate with all of today’s CobraNet compatible DSP products. In addition, this is the ideal solution for many situations where a project requires numerous channels of digital audio routed throughout a facility, but doesn’t require a large dedicated DSP product. The Hono™ CobraNet™ Series from AudioScience: Networked audio transport technology in a powerful and versatile package at a very attractive price.


Cobranet Fixed

AudioScience’s Hono™ CobraNet Fixed Series has 12 pre-configured devices for the most popular I/O combinations. These networked audio interfaces are built in a 1U rackmount format and provide up to 16 channels of CobraNet receive and transmit. These units feature a powerful Texas Instruments 32bit floating point DSP that allows sophisticated switching/mixing. A graphics display on the unit’s front panel shows peak meters and CobraNet status. AudioScience provides application software that may be used to set up all of the Hono™ Series units. ASIControl sets up all internal features of the unit and allows CobraNet routing connections to be set up between the Hono™ Series units and any other CobraNet device on the network.

CobraNet Custom/ASI2416

AudioScience also provides unique custom configurations with our Hono™ CobraNet Custom/ASI2416. From our website’s configuration tool, you can easily and quickly design the exact I/O combination that your application requires. You can even specify the connector types: Terminal Blocks, XLR on breakout cable, RJ-45, or ¼ inch jacks (mic-line only). These custom audio interfaces are built in a 1U rackmount format and provide up to 16 channels of CobraNet receive and transmit. The units can be populated with up to four function specific modules, allowing up to 32 channels of analog or AES/EBU I/O. Each module has an interchangeable connector that may be configured with either a pluggable terminalblock, StudioHub+®, 50pin Centronics connector with XLR breakout cables, or ¼ inch jacks. Each Hono™ CobraNet “custom” device features a powerful Texas Instruments 32bit floating point DSP

that allows sophisticated switching/mixing. A graphics display on the unit’s front panel shows peak meters and CobraNet status.

Accessories and Cables BREAK-OUT BOXES

Front view of BOB1024

The BOB1024 and BOB1025 are 1U rackmount break boxes that terminate the analog or AES/EBU connectors on supported AudioScience adapters. BOB1024 provides balanced I/O on XLR connectors. Connections to the audio adapter are via a 50-pin high density SCSI type connector for analog and a 26pin high density connector for digital (AES/EBU). Two BOB1024s can be ganged together to provide 4 stereo inputs and 8 stereo outputs in analog mode. Rear view of BOB1024 BOB1025 provides balanced I/O on StudioHub (RJ45) connectors. It can be operated as either an analog breakout (4 stereo in and 8 stereo out) or AES/EBU digital breakout (4 stereo in, 6 stereo out and sync in/out). Connections to the audio adapter are via a 50-pin high density SCSI type connector for analog and a 26-pin high density connector for digital (AES/EBU). Both breakout boxes include the necessary cables to connect to AudioScience sound cards.

CABLES AudioScience provides a variety of broadcast-quality cables that provide XLR terminations for both the analog and AES/EBU connectors on our sound cards. Connections include DB-9, Mini DB50 and Centronics 50-pin. Description

Software Drivers and Applications Software Drivers

NEW

AudioScience offers a complete range of audio driver interfaces for all of our audio adapters. Operating system support includes Windows 7, XP, Server 2008/2003, Linux and Macintosh. The sections below outline the specific interfaces supported.

Macintosh OS X ®

The AudioScience Macintosh® driver supports low latency multichannel recording and playback on a selected number of adapter models, and makes these features available to any OS X application that supports Core Audio. The AudioScience Macintosh driver is compatible with OS X releases starting from Snow Leopard® onwards, including the upcoming Lion® and later releases.

Windows WAVE, WDM and Combo The AudioScience Microsoft Windows drivers enable multi-stream recording, reproduction and mixing of digital audio on a PC platform. The Microsoft multimedia wave and mixer APIs are supported under Windows 7, XP, and Server 2008/2003. The drivers utilize large adapter buffers to provide high performance, glitch-free audio under all operating conditions. There are 3 versions of the Windows driver. The WAVE driver supports the waveOut, waveIn and mixer interfaces. It communicates directly with the hardware to support compressed audio playback/recording/mixing using the on-board DSP. The WDM driver supports the DirectSound interface for low-latency PCM only recording and playback. The Combo driver contains both the WAVE and WDM interfaces; a 64bit version is available. All drivers support AudioScience’s ASX and HPI APIs, TSX™ time scaling, and SSX™/SSX2™ extensions.

ASIO The AudioScience Audio Stream In/Out (ASIO) 2.0 driver enables multi-track recording, reproduction, and mixing of PCM digital audio on a PC platform under the Windows 7, XP, and Server 2008/2003 OS. This driver follows the ASIO philosophy of providing a simple low latency PCM audio pass-through from the hardware to the application. The ASIO driver interface is integrated into the AudioScience Windows WAVE, WDM or Combo drivers; it’s built in and installs automatically when one of our drivers is installed. As such, ASIO applications may share the audio hardware’s resources with other audio applications that use WAVE, DirectSound,® or the HPI interfaces. Copyright notice: ASIO is a trademark and software of Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH

Linux ALSA/HPI The AudioScience Linux drivers enable multi-stream recording, reproduction, and mixing of multi-stream digital audio on a PC running the Linux operating system. The AudioScience HPI and ASX audio APIs are supported under various kernel versions and distributions including kernel 2.6. Additionally ALSA supports AudioScience cards with the “snd-asihpi” module. The driver is released under GPL, the libraries under a modified BSD style license.

Software Applications AudioScience supplies several applications that enable the configuration of our sound cards. For a current list, visit www.AudioScience.com.

ASIControl This application is used to used to configure your audio adapter when running the WDM driver. It runs under Windows 7, XP, and Server 2008/2003. It can be used to: > Set
