What is Horus? Horus might be one of the worlds most sonically transparent mic pres. Horus might also be one of the most phenomenal AD/DA boxes on the market. Horus could very well be the ultimate answer to anyone wanting analog/AES/MADI interconnectivity in the room they work in. It is a revolution in bang-for-buck technology and is set to become the de-facto audio I/O device for the media industries.

But, in reality, Horus is much, much more. Using Ravenna technology, Horus brings to the table the possibility to interconnect your entire facility using nothing more than a standard RJ45 connector. Once in Ravenna mode, the Horus box simply becomes a node on a network, one that can be instantly called to be an input, an output, or a combination of both.

Using standard network connections, switches and connectors, Horus and other Ravenna-enabled devices can be placed on a network and interconnected in any way you can imagine.

The Horus Base Unit

Modular by Design

The ability to choose the amount of I/O that each Horus unit is capable of saves money without diminishing the level of quality. Choose to add any of the option modules to your Horus and create the ultimate audio interface for your studio, whatever the size. Once the Horus is fully loaded with option cards, it is capable of achieving an astonishing 200 inputs and 202 outputs @1FS.

Route Signal Anywhere

Horus has been designed so that any input can be routed to any amount of outputs as required... or at the same time. With comprehensive routing pages accessible both locally on the touchscreen and by remote access using a standard web browser, Horus is your answer to signal flow management in your studio.

Your RAVENNA passport, no matter where you come from

Pyramix users are of course our first love, but we are offering any DAW/NLE user the opportunity to take advantage of RAVENNA by using the ASIO (PC) / CoreAudio (Mac) drivers bundled with Horus. So, even if your tool of choice was not RAVENNA already, it is now.

Green Built

For power-conscious users, Horus has been meticulously designed in order to keep consumption at an incredible minimum. A Horus running 24 channels of phantom power enabled preamps will only draw about 60W, making it more affordable to run than your kitchen lights. A Horus with a full complement of AD8D pre-amps will be closer to 120W.

• 8 x exceptionally transparent, Swiss designed pre-amplifiers
• Remote/Local switch to Line Level on a per channel basis
• Completely remote accessible for all parameter changes
• Phantom Power/Phase/Low Cut switchable per channel
• Analog direct output signal path, post-mic pre, pre A/D
• Better than 120dB dynamic range

Key Features
Combines 8 channels of A/D and 8 channels of D/A on a single card (up to 192kHz)
• 8 x exceptionally transparent, Swiss designed pre-amplifiers
• Remote/Local switch to Line Level on a per channel basis
• Completely accessible remotely for all parameter changes
• Phantom Power/Phase/Low Cut/Impedance switchable per channel
