Analog Sound For Sonic Core

SpaceF Devices have been in touch to tell us that they have released the FB5 and V82 Valve mixers for the Sonic Core DSP soundcards (formerly known as “Scope�). They say that the mixers are for large DSP set-ups and bring a strong analog feel to any digital sound source connected to their channels. Included is the “FAT� algorithm that gives body and warmth to any sound and enhances the way compressor and filter plug-ins work, by feeding them with subtle harmonics and natural transients.
A spokesperson had this to say, “Filters and modulation features will let users experiment with live effects in the easiest way ever offered by a mixer, while the DSP management will bring air each time room is needed. Serious performers will appreciate the design and the separate preset lists for mute and mix, auxiliary and master effects, or insert load state. Users of BlackBox II can load the filters inside the mixers and modulate them with signals such as audio, external modulator plug-ins, or user-made Modular Patches.�
The FB5 and V82 Valve mixers are part of an expanding modular mixing ensemble that allows users to build big DSP-based mixing systems, and is delivered with a light version of “MB4�, a 4 stereo bus extension and auxiliary effects adder, LFOs and envelope followers to load, when needed, side-chain compressor and other specialized extensions.
All parameters can be assigned to a MIDI CC compatible hardware controller and support parameter feedback or midi output of assigned controls.
The sound quality of the mixer is that of the Scope and Sonic Core platforms, (Analog Device Sharc DSP , 32-bit floating-point processing, 44.1/48/96 KHz, latency-free real time operation and monitoring, and hardware i/o depending on the soundcard and ADDA converters (audio to ADAT).
