Recording sound card with 4 internal and 4 external AES/EBU inputs/outputs and word clock I/O

The Seraph D8-C MWX Marian is a professional sound card for recording and mixing with 4 internal and 4 external AES/EBU inputs/outputs & word clock I/O. It is designed for professional applications, where it provides the user with a digital mixer, but still offers high signal quality at up to 192 kHz sample rate, low latencies and numerous channels. In addition to the features of the D8, this MWX version has a word clock output, with which the interface can also serve as a clock generator for other devices. It also has two MIDI inputs/outputs. Thanks to the TDM SyncBus, the card can be expanded with three further identical interfaces. This makes it particularly useful for users who require a large number of channels and flexible expansion options. In contrast to the D8 MWX, the D8-C MWX has an additional internal D-Sub connector instead of just two external D-Sub connectors, the latter of which can be relocated inside the housing using a flex cable.

Finest sound processing

In the Marian Seraph D8 MWX, high-quality sample rate converters have been integrated into the circuit, so you can pick up a dynamic range of 140dB at any point of the signal, up to sample rates of 192kHz. The resolution of 24bit also meets high quality requirements.

In the heart a BEAST

The digital signal processor on which the sound system of the Seraph D8 MWX is based is not wrong to bear the sonorous name "BEAST". With 56 virtual channels, 8 mix sums and 224 EQs, it's basically a perfect digital mixer for your DAW, eliminating the need for a separate mixer. The creation of sub mixes with pre- and post switches is no problem here. The fully parametric EQs can be assigned to individual sub-mixes. So you can easily apply an EQ to the grand total, but exclude the headphone mix and the like. The fully parametric EQs are based on analog models, so each channel has one low shelf, two peak and one high shelf EQ. The DSP's flexible routing lets you redirect any signal to any output or back to the input, including signals from other application software. In addition, one stereo and three mono aux channels are available - the aux sums can be switched as pre/post and are designed for headphone mixes and effect loading. Various monitor functions complete the digital mixer package for absolutely latency-free mixing.

Not enough? No problem thanks to TDM SyncBus!

With the TDM SyncBus pins on top of the sound card, the interface can be extended with three additional SyncBus compatible Marian cards. This not only increases the number of channels and I/O options. In addition, the cards synchronize with each other via this bus with regard to clock and start/stop signals - via this mode, your D8 can then function as master clock even without word clock output.

Word clock output for even more flexibility

But what if you don't want to do without other devices in your Marian repertoire and still want to decide on the full range of clock circuits? Here you can use the MWX version of the D8, to which the word clock second module is internally connected via an extender cable. This allows you to synchronize the sample rates of other devices with the D8 MWX, either as clock generator (master) or as clock receiver (slave). In this way, devices outside the Marian product range can also be harmonized with the interface. Thanks to the WordClock signals, experimental circuits are also possible, which only work with an independent clock. The clearly arranged clock software allows you to keep track of all clock signals. Sample rates, lock Status and any sync errors can be read out at each clock signal. The second module also contains the MIDI D-Sub interface, which can be used to connect two MIDI inputs/outputs to a MIDI controller of your choice using the supplied adapter cable.

The Multiclient Driver Suite

With the help of the multiclient driver suite from (with Marian software support for ASIO 2 -, GSIF 2 -, WDM with kernel streaming and real, non-emulated DirectSound) the simultaneous control of the DSP from different audio applications is no longer a problem. This is ensured by multiple and better managed driver interfaces, so you can work latency-free and error-free from any software environment. The user interface is clear and intuitive, so that you can set up your sound system effectively and easily with the easy-to-read manual at the latest. The driver suite comes with proven fail-safe technology, which automatically resets the firmware to the latest version if an error occurs during driver updates. This makes the maintenance of the software foolproof.

Highest manufacturing quality

With the German manufacturer Marian , you not only support the offices of the Leipzig IT engineers - the production of the modules also takes place in German plants. This ensures continuous product control with low error tolerances. Marian Therefore, 5 years warranty is promised for their products.
