2U Rack Mount Chassis, Weight: 21 kg (45 lb), Depth: 66cm (26 in)


Model HLX 2000 - A Modular System
  • A server class rack mount computer with SoundMan-Server, ShowMan & E-Show software & industry standard audio and digital I/O cards from a huge variety of choices, and solid state or mechanical hard drives.
  • Add a variety of MOTU AVB audio interfaces for a huge number of inputs and outputs
  • Each matrix input can mix together three possible signal sources: playback and external audio. The output of this mix goes through overall EQ, delay and gain processing before going into the matrix itself.
  • Each matrix crosspoint has polarity and dynamic level and delay controls.
  • Each matrix output goes through overall EQ, delay and gain processing.

HLX Series Audio Specifications

  • PLAY/STOP/RESUME RANDOM PLAYBACK ACCESSIBILITY: Synchronous or asynchronous, 48000 samples per second. Plays any number of tracks at any time, triggered simultaneously or in sequence, overlapping or not. For example, at one moment the HLX Server can play up to 999 tracks, triggered independently or in multi channel combinations, all triggered simultaneously or independently and running in sync if desired.
  • AUDIO RECORDING CAPABILITY: Records any number of tracks, up to 64, at 48000 samples per second. Audio can be recorded at the inputs or at the outputs of the matrix, generating a multi-channel audio file on the internal disk drive. These multi-channel files may be played back at the full channel count immediately after the recording is ended. They can also be split into a set of single-channel files for playback in any combination with other audio selections on the disk drive, or transfered at high speed to a computer for editing and archiving. [future feature]
