  • requirements:
    processor
  • Texas Instruments TMS320C30 @ 40 MHz DSP
    • 20 MIPS, 40 MFLOPS
    memory
  • 256 kB SRAM audio sample memory expandable up to 4 MB with two SIMMs
  • 32 kB high speed dual ported SRAM program memory
    audio support
  • Crystal CS4225 16 bit audio codec (quad channel version of the CS4215)
  • 16 internal 16 bit audio channels (with at least 2 MB SRAM)
  • sample rates: 32, 44.1, 48 kHz
  • realtime volume envelope control (i.e. no rendering)
  • realtime pan control - place sound anywhere in the room
  • audio effects: compression, noise gating, reverb
  • audio scrubbing
    video effects support
  • also serves as a transition and CG rendering accelerator
  • accelerates transition rendering times to 4-10× faster over a stock A4000
  • more complex transitions and video effects such as 3D page turns with realistic rendering time
    I/O
  • inputs
    • 2 balanced +4 dBu XLR analog inputs
    • 1 (stereo pair) digital input (AES / EBU format)
  • outputs
    • 4 balanced +4 dBu XLR analog outputs (ie. surround capable)
    • 1 (stereo pair) digital output (AES / EBU format)
  • digital I/O also supports the SP/DIF standard
