INTRODUCING CORE 256 & AX64 WITH NEW THUNDER | CORE TECHNOLOGY
THUNDER | CORE
Are You Ready to Rumble!?
Our Thunder|Core technology is the direct link between pristine DAD audio conversion, flexible routing and your computers. At the core, USB-C / ThunderBolt 3 with up to 256 channels and near-zero latency connects to your Windows or macOS based computers, ensuring an effortless flow of audio channels between Dante, MADI and ADAT.
Your Thunder|Core reward? Streamlined and efficient workflows that saves you tons of valuable production time.
Prepare to get thunderstruck when you meet... Core 256 and AX64!
With Thunder|Core, you can run up to 256 bidirectional channels at 48 kHz, 256 channels at 88.2/96 kHz, 128 channels at 176.4/192 kHz or 64 channels at 352.8/384 kHz.
And you get absolute control of the audio channel routing matrix with the acclaimed – and included – DADman control software.
The Core Audio Thunder|Core driver for Apple Mac computers supports the use of Intel as well as Silicon (M1) CPU processors all the way down the highway to a buffer size of just 32 samples.
For Windows 10 computers, the same buffer size is supported, but due to Windows OS structures the actual minimum buffer size is 128 samples.
The Thunder|Core interface provides a fast Thunderbolt 3/PCIe connection and data transfer with 2 samples latency on the connection and a total of 9 samples in the digital interface, as total also includes EQ and summing processing within the unit.
The channel capacity is up to 256 audio channels at 48 and 96 kHz, and the latency at 96kHz is 95 microseconds.
The total round-trip latency with an audio software application will depend on the buffer size set for the application. With a buffer size of 32 samples, the latency is 670 microseconds at 96 kHz.
Full and Flexible Control
Thunder|Core taps directly into our DADman software that puts you completely in control of audio routing, conversion and workflows from top to bottom.
In total, the routing matrix supports a grid of no less than 4096 x 4096 audio channels.
