Cranborne Audio 500R8 500-Series Rack
The Cranborne Audio 500R8 500-Series Rack is the new home for 8 of your favorite 500-Series modules. It's also your new 26/28 channel USB audio interface, monitor controller, ADAT interface, and discrete analogue summing mixer.
The Cranborne Audio 500R8 500-Series Rack takes analogue electronics and USB integration to the next level by allowing you to utilise your favourite 500 series modules as your very own customisable tracking front-end directly into your DAW. Dedicated USB source selects for each slot and a discrete analogue summing mixer with it's own USB send allows you to bring your 500 series modules- such as EQs, compressors, and saturation devices -into your mixing process and bring analogue sound back into your workflow.
500R8 features reference-class analogue-to-digital conversion with 121dB (unweighted) signal-to-noise ratio and a master-reference grade internal digital clock with ultra-low jitter (
USB Audio Interface
Build your dream studio around 500R8's built-in 26-in/28-out channel USB audio interface that provides recording/playback of analogue and ADAT sources as well as connectivity via MIDI and clock distribution via Word-clock.
Control all aspects of your control room and artist monitoring setup by utilising 500R8's built-in monitor controller that includes options for Speaker A & B switching, Mono sum, Mute, Dim, and Talkback facilities.
Zero-Latency Artist Mixer
Move away from clunky software mixers and get your hands back onto the mix by using 500R8's analogue summing mixer to create artist mixes that can be blended with the DAW playback, and sent to your musicians with zero-latency.
Discrete Summing Mixer
Give your mix the final bit of analogue character and send instrument groups and stems back-through your 500 series modules, into the discrete analogue summing mixer, summed, and sent into your DAW via USB.
The implementation of the ADCs result in 121dB (unweighted) signal-to-noise ratio and - 112dB THD+N whilst our DACs achieve 127dB (unweighted) signal-to-noise and -115dB THD+N. Our analogue design stages operate at between 0.0002-0.0004% THD+N to ensure that the only factors influencing the converters' dynamic range are the converters themselves and not the supporting analogue circuity.
Master Reference-Quality Clock
A/D and D/A numbers don't tell the whole story. Converters are only as good as the clocks that are governing them. Our internal digital clock reaches atomic-clock level accuracy, for master reference-quality with < 0.5 picoseconds of jitter. Our designs feature isolated analogue and digital ground planes and power rails so that our digital elements receive accurate clocks and our analogue signals are noise- and distortion-free.
