Aphex is now shipping the new USB 500 Rack, a USB computer audio interface and analog rack for up to four 500 series modules.
The USB 500 Rack facilitates the use favorite 500 Series mic preamps as inputs to a DAW, individually or chained to form a channel strip. In addition, processor modules such as EQs and compressors can be routed in a DAW as hardware inserts.
In addition, the USB 500 Rack can act as an analog 500 Series rack via its balanced XLR connectors.
“We expect our USB 500 Rack to really open up people’s 500 series workflows by connecting traditionally analog modules directly to the computer,” says Aphex chairman David Wiener. “When we showed it at AES, a number of 500 series makers told us how excited they are that we are releasing such a revolutionary unit.”
Other features of the USB 500 Rack are its Monitor section (with Mono and Dim controls), high output headphone amps (based on those of our acclaimed HeadPod 4), MIDI I/O, and up to 96 kHz operation.
