Analog Sound For Sonic Core
FB5

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).

    Wow, I never knew this site was well versed in the world of DSP DAW's. Cool. I use these mixers live now instead of my old rack mounted Crest. The Crest sounded so much better to me when I was running all of my signals ( 16 ) out of an A16 Ultra into it. But I was using a stock Creamware DSP mixer, and believe me once I heard the FB5 I quickly shrunk my rack space down and sold the mixer. The FB5's big advantage is also the way it handles MIDI. I can leave effects inserted into the channels/AUX's and have presets that can be recalled that have the effects bypassed/muted, all from a KS88 MIDI controller. So the extra controls and level of quality these mixers bring to the stage are 2 fold. Sure I love quality hardware also, but only when I detect an audible difference. Since I can still route our hardware effects into the DSP projects it was an easy decision for us.
