4 I/O Broadcast/Mastering PCIe DSP Audio System
Marian - 'Seraph AD2'

Marian - Seraph AD2

Audio - as pure as it gets The perfect meeting point for analogue and digital audio signal has been engineered. Drawing its incredible power from the ‘BEAST’, a fully-fledged DSP mixing desk, Seraph’s AD2 offers 2 AES/EBU I/Os and 2 balanced analogue I/Os, for incredible adaptability.

The innovative circuit designed with customised I/O levels and using only the finest components hands you incredible sonic quality at any sample rate up to 192kHz. Using the ultra-modern PCIe interface alongside customised transfer functions, designed and optimised specifically for 32-bit high-quality and high-speed audio transfer, Seraph’s ‘AD2’ is set to a reliable partner for any professional studio which deals regularly with highly sensitive analogue/digital signals.

The new cockpit of your studio: The BEASTAs a member of the Seraph series, AD2 includes the new ‘BEAST’ Digital Signal Processor (DSP). This makes the purchase of an additional mixing console completely unnecessary. Even the purchase of a patchbay isn’t required, in the hardware of the AD2 is a full 44-2 channel mixer with one stereo and 3 further mono aux paths. These aux sums are all pre/post switchable and therefore predestined for use as a headphone mix/effect feed. Alongside all of this, each of the 44 channels offers an extensive filter section with one low shelf EQ, two peak EQs and one high shelf EQ.

In addition, the BEAST offers the most comprehensive total recall functionality: All mixer and routing settings is able to be quickly saved as "snapshots" and recalled with just one click. Alongside all audio settings, this also includes visual settings and labels that you have created for a better overview. Furthermore, all settings can be saved to a file, e.g. for a specific project, and read in again on other systems.

Flexible and Expandable

Marian - Seraph AD2

The TDM SyncBusUsing the TDM SyncBus the Seraph AD2 is a flexible basis for the realization of multichannel setups. Combinations with up to 3 more Seraphs or with any other SyncBus-compatible MARIAN sound system, allow setups with a number of channels according to your individual application or budget. The SyncBus enables all connected systems to share audio clock and start/stop information. This unique feature ensures reliable recording of all the signals of the sound systems involved. More than that: Thanks to an intelligent bus management, TDM SyncBus compatible systems allow the transfer and exchange of up to 8 audio signals. The signals shared will appear as input signal in each mixer of each card and are handled like every "normal" input signal.

Fast and Reliable: Multi-Client Driver SuiteEach Seraph system provides software support for Windows™ 7/8/10, Windows™ Server 2008/2008.R2/2012. The continuously enhanced driver software includes true multi-client support for ASIO 2.2 and multi-channel WDM Audio / WASAPI with lowest latencies in all software environments. In contrast to competing products, the driver allows multiple audio applications to access the sound system simultaneously via the same or different driver interfaces.

Well-structured driver menus and dialogs, combined with an easy-to-read and practical manual, make this system extremely easy to set up and to customize for the specific needs of your studio.

Powerful and Future-proof: A perfect choiceThe Seraph AD2 is available in two versions. For basic integration the SERAPH AD2 with its Wordclock input connector will serve perfectly in all recording situations. The Seraph AD2 MWX provides an additional daughter board featuring 2 MIDI in- and outputs as well as a wordclock synchronization output. The MWX will be automatically recognized upon connection with the main card and does not require additional software installation.

The wordclock ports are ideal for advanced clock setups that allow independence of the clock signals coming in on the AES/EBU inputs. That means, you can also synchronize all external equipment featuring a wordclock input simply by using the Seraph AD2 MWX as clock master. Additionally the high quality samplerate converters on the audio inputs allow a unsurpassed flexibility in the clock setup of the digital studio. But of course the SRCs can of course be deactivated to retain a signal path, that is beyond any doubt pure.
