NEUTRON can simultaneously process up to 24 internal multi-channel effects and its 40 bit floating-point audio processing hosts a wide choice of virtual effects devices, which range from dual-mono delay units, stereo modulation and numerous diverse reverberation simulations, multi-band compression, dynamic EQ and multi-channel dual-function dynamics processing. Up to 36 1⁄3 octave KLARK TEKNIK DN370 Graphic Equalisers (GEQs) are provided, which can be patched into any output.
The oversampled digital signal processing algorithms, combined with the fully interpolated and touch sensitive user controls, result in the smooth continuous response and immediacy of working on an analogue console. Parameter adjustment becomes fast and easy, and the continuous phase shift of a swept frequency control is heard without the quantisation artefacts exhibited by competing digital consoles.
NEUTRON provides comprehensive automatic latency management of all internal routing and processing delays – and also includes compensation for external analogue inserts. All audio samples are synchronised before summing, resulting in absolute phase coherence at the outputs, without the comb filtering effects of competing products that often result in specific frequencies being cancelled out completely.
All effects processors and GEQs are custom-designed to function within this automatic latency compensation system. This ensures a phase-coherent, sample-accurate mix regardless of whether the devices are used as channel inserts or on auxiliary buses.
N+1 Redundant DSP Processing
NEUTRON is fitted with 4 DSP cards as standard for N+1 redundant operation, as only 3 DSP cards are required for full operation. In the very rare event that one of the DSP cards should experience an execution fault, the spare idle card is loaded with that card’s profile under the control of the PRO X Control Centre.
NEUTRON is future-proofed in the evolving world of digital audio networking technology by being able to support new and emerging protocols via its expansion card slot.
