ASHLY SIMPLIFIES INTEGRATION WITH NEW NE SERIES PROCESSORS

ne_series_processors.JPGWEBSTER, NEW YORK – MAY 2009: Ashly Audio’s new ne4400, ne4800 and ne8800 digital signal processors bring user-friendly setup and control to networked audio systems using Ashly’s PC-hosted Protea NE Software via standard 10/100 Ethernet and RS-232 protocol. These latest additions to the company’s NE (Network Enabled) Series offer a multi-channel routing matrix with microphone input, network audio and digital audio hardware options, plus an extensive menu of 32-bit/96kHz SHARC-based DSP that supports hot-plug software control.

The three standard units offer 4×4 (4400), 4×8 (4800) and 8×8 (8800) analog line input/output formats with 24-bit A-to-D and D-to-A converters and a high-performance analog audio path that provides a dynamic range of better than 114dB. Hardware options include four-channel mic/line inputs with software controllable gain and phantom power, CobraNet network audio input and output, EtherSound network audio I/O and AES/EBU digital audio I/O.

Running on multiple SHARC 32-bit processors at 48KHz or 96KHz sample rates, the comprehensive DSP library offers a menu of processing blocks that include an 8×8 matrix mixer; a full array of variable Q graphic and parametric equalization; crossover filters to 8th-order Butterworth, Bessel, Linkwitz and Notched-Linkwitz with up to 48dB/octave slopes; an extremely advanced automatic feedback suppressor; auto-levelers; compressors; matrix duckers; limiters; frequency-keyed noise gates; time delay up to 1,365 ms on every channel; and sine wave, pink noise and white noise generators. Ashly’s Protea NE Software, running on the PC platform, permits hot-plugging any function into any channel block while running live audio with no latency or recompiling necessary. Computer or supported third party device interface is via 10/100 Ethernet and RS-232 protocol.

Automatic DHCP network IP configuration ensures quick and easy setup. Limited front panel controls and multiple levels of multi-user password-enabled software ensure tamperproof security.

All three models feature word clock input and output, and automatic master clock switchover between network, word clock, AES/EBU and internal clock with front panel source indicators. The front panel also features input and output metering with individual channel mutes, plus input source (analog, digital, network) and sample rate indicators.

Additional features include: network audio routing at matrix mixer to inputs from outputs, or in/out of matrix mixer, eight link groups on most functions, a high-performance analog audio path (dynamic range exceeding 114dB), support of Ashly digital remote controls, and a front panel full meter bridge with mute keys.

Rear panel connectors include Euroblock connectors for audio, preset recall, DC remote level control and data in/out. Programmable eight-channel 5V logic input or output control and eight channels of 0 to 5V analog level, BNC word clock input and output and RS-232. An optional output module offers eight-channel, general-purpose logic control-to-control room lighting, projection screens or other controllable devices.

Accessories include four dedicated remote controls for level, logic I/O and programmable functions, including Ashly’s wall-mounting WR-1 2-ch level control, WR-2 four-position switch and WR-5 programmable selector, plus the desktop/wall-mount RD/RW8C 8-ch level control panel.
