Prism Audio Atlas Audio Interface with 8 Mic Pres, MIDI, and Digital Expansion Slot
Atlas is a world class multi-track interface which offers flexible expansion and unsurpassable sonic clarity. Using the latest generation of Prism Sounds trusted conversion, Atlas provides more preamps than Titan making it suitable for a wider range of recording scenarios.
UNSURPASSED CLOCKING AND JITTER REJECTION Prism Sounds history in developing test and measurement equipment for the audio industry has allowed our engineers to get a much deeper understanding of digital clocking and its associated issues.
DIGITAL MIXER WITH FLEXIBLE MONITORING Atlas has a powerful built-in digital mixer that can be configured to provide a multitude of ultra low latency feeds, Including foldback to performers, stereo and surround outputs.
MIC PREAMPS The Atlas boasts 8 ultra-clean, low-noise microphone preamps that perfectly compliment its transparent A/D conversion (with software controllable phantom power, -20dB pad and Overkiller limiter switches on each channel.)
FUTURE PROOF CONNECTIVITY With a standard USB connection Atlas can connect to the widest range of computers today and for the foreseeable future. Add to this the option of ProTools HDX and Dante modules for the most flexible and professional solution.
MDIO MULTI-CHANNEL I/O EXPANSION Atlas & Titan support Prism Sound’s MDIO expansion cards, which provide alternative “host” connections. The “host” is usually a computer and the Atlas or Titan interface provides a means of connection between the host and the external analogue and digital audio I/O ports.
The MDIO expansion slot provides an alternative host connection. It does not necessarily disable the USB port, but in the case of the Pro Tools interface MDIO-PTHDX, the USB port is switched off when the Pro Tools interface is to be used.
SOFTWARE Atlas’ front panel gives continuous visual indication of the unit’s main settings and levels, but in-depth control is managed from the Atlas Controller applet. This runs on the DAW computer, and can be popped up whenever adjustments are needed.
The upper area of the applet shows a panel of ‘Global’ settings for the entire group of connected interfaces, and a panel of ‘Unit’ settings which is assignable to each connected unit in turn, using the enclosed drop-list. These settings are concerned with general parameters such as sync source and sample rate selection, metering and buffering modes. An ‘Identify’ button causes all the LEDs on the selected box to light, to assist with identification in multi-unit systems. To the right, there are large buttons for loading and saving setups, and for on-line help.
