Merging Technologies Anubis Compact AD/DA Interface

  • $ 0.00


ONE OF A KIND.

Compact AD/DA interface with 4 analog inputs (2 MicPre/Line and 2 Instrument/Line), 4 analog outputs, 2 independent headphones, GPIO and MIDI.

Internal low latency mixing engine operated through a large touch monitor giving access to multiple upgradable software applications.

I/O expandable up to 256 inputs and 256 outputs through an AES67/RAVENNA network connection.

MERGING QUALITY.

This ultra-mobile and stylish unibody case offers astonishing A/D performance with a dynamic range of 139dB with equally impressive mic pres. Our pristine D/A technology ensures that you hear what your project deserves. Anubis come in two variants: Anubis Pro gives you exceptional performance up to 192kHz. If your mission is working in true high-resolution, Anubis Premium offers up to 384kHz and DXD plus DSD flavors up to 256. What else would you expect from Merging!

ULTIMATE SOUND QUALITY.

Killer headphone circuit! Merging has invested great efforts in designing our best ever headphone preamplifier, offering the precision you need to evaluate your mix whatever the sample rate.

Anubis is engineered with the latest generation converter technology, coupled with 28 years of experience in designing excellence reference quality. A 32bit signal path from input to output via the mixer, combined with the latest circuit design, its short audio signal path decreases the latency and improves the power distribution. Phenomenal performance at any sample rate!

DUAL GAIN 32BIT A/D CIRCUITRY.

Not only does this provide huge dynamic range with ample headroom, but you can control the gain independently for different circuits with clickless steps. It also allows for software add-ons. Creative innovation!

SPLIT CHANNEL ON ALL INPUTS.

Every input has a separate split gain control for sending them to different paths. Typically, one for the recording device and one for the FOH.

EXCEPTIONAL MECHANICS.

Anubis is not a piece of bent metal with a few knobs on the top. It may be a small desktop unit, but it is beautifully crafted from a single piece of aluminium. Inside is a miracle of production engineering under the guidance of masters of the miniature, Sonosax.

Swiss engineering at its best!

BACKPACK PORTABILITY.

Anubis is designed to go with you everywhere. Its rugged design and carry case with a weight of 950g and dimensions of 200 x 128 x 40mm, make it ideal for stuffing in a backpack. It fits easily on your desktop or can be mounted on a microphone stand.
