New firmware upgrade ver. 1.3 for AX32 now supporting 48 analogue channels.
The AX32 is now available with version 1.3 firmware which accommodates up to a total of 48 channels of analogue inputs or analogue outputs or a combination thereof. The AX32 can thus have 48 microphone preamplifier and converter inputs or e.g. a combination of 32 input channels and 16 output channels.
A total of six analogue cards can be housed in the AX32. Each card slot accepts an eight-channel line-level A/D converter, eight-channel microphone input or eight-channel D/A converter with analogue line output. The cards can be combined in any permutation.
Version 1.3 also adds the ability to control the sampling rate of the IP audio interface powered by Dante (TM), and full support for redundant IP audio connection plus a word clock output feature supporting all the sample rate frequencies (44.1 to 192 kilohertz) or just the base sample rate of 44.1 or 48 kilohertz.
All the functionality is controlled from the DADman 4.0 with new comprehensive features for channel strip management of all the channels, as well as an improved router matrix configuration.
Existing AX32 units can be upgraded with the new firmware and DADman control software. New firmware for the Dante Brooklyn II IP Audio card is also available. System configuration is highly flexible and includes IP Layer 3 Ethernet-based audio networking powered by Dante.
