Digital Detangler pro series is based on the same technology as the z-8.8
digital detangler, without the optical format capability (they're AES/EBU
or S/PDIF only), but with the added convenience of remote/computer control.
The digital detangler pro series offers a solution to all of these problems. Unlike the z-8.8, however, the digital detangler pros use multi-pin breakout cables for their AES/EBU connections. This is because of the high density of interconnect needed to establish up to 64 source and destination connections. The breakout cables are identical in pinout to those used by TASCAM for the DA88 eight-track DAT recorder. We supply the pinout so you can make your own cables, or we can supply you with extremely high-quality AES/EBU breakout cables.
Hook up all of your digital audio sources and destinations to the digital detangler pro's rear panel. The connection pattern is then simply established by the touch of a few buttons on the unit's remote control or a couple of keystrokes on the computer. Furthermore, both the remote control and the computer interfaces allow the creation of multiple presets, or "salvos" which can later be recalled for instant reconfiguration on the fly.
As with the z-8.8, the detangler pros are fully asynchronous, which allows them to handle multiple sample rates at the same time. For the real do-it-yourselfer, we also supply the control protocol so you can build your own control interface (software or hardware). Other manufacturers have written their own control interfaces for the digital detangler pro so it can be used with their products. See, for example, Sonic Science.
Quotes From Satisfied Users
to the Z-Systems 16.16, my digital workstation is complete. I am impressed
with the ease in which the system works both with the remote and the control
sound effects creation for our latest Cincinnati Pops album (Symphonic
Star Trek - Telarc CD-80383) required us to set up a special surround
sound control room from scratch. We had three DAWs, two 8-tracks, a sampler,
a digital console, and numerous special effects. The 16.16 tied it all
together and saved us many trips behind the racks to repatch our gear.
We were constantly altering our configuration, and the 16.16 and its companion
software made that almost effortless."
Z-Systems units give our facility flexible digital switching interfaces
in compact, affordable packages."
