TiMax unleashes new SoundHub HARDCore FPGA dsp and TrackerD4 precision stagetracking
Out Board have released the latest evolutions of their unrivalled TiMax immersive audio and showcontrol systems, currently in use on several major productions worldwide.
The powerful new TiMax HARDCore FPGA dsp engine for the TiMax Soundhub platform adds extended delay-matrix memory and ultra-smooth dynamic delay-morphing algorithms to create totally transparent real-time localisation. HARDCore hugely expands sound designers’ capability to achieve superior panoramic spatial mix reinforcement and immersive 3D soundscapes. HARDCore has also paved the way for a next-generation interactive spatial reverb resource within TiMax, destined to deliver unrivalled immersive sound design tools and acoustic enhancement resources.
All-new TiMax TrackerD4 precision performer stagetracking is billed as affordable, dependable and portable, addressing a current price/performance gap in the market with enhanced levels of speed and precision at a range of cost levels offering serious ROI potential across a wide range of applications. With the legendary TiMax vocal-localisation processes now controlled and monitored entirely within the TiMax SoundHub’s PanSpace GUI via OSC, the responsiveness of the new D4 also opens up the reality of highly cost-effective lighting and multimedia stagetracking control. As well as OSC, a PosiStageNet interface is also available, and TiMax TrackerD4 interfaces to other spatial audio platforms are also being offered.
The versatile and elegantly simple new TiMax OSC interface allows generic tablet controllers such as TouchOSC and Lemur to be quickly mapped to TiMax spatialisation, system management and showcontrol functions to provide fully customised touchscreen interfaces tailored to individual performance, presentation and experiential applications.
