Example Applications


Below are some example applications:

Broadcast Facility

Solid State Logic manufacturers MORSE; a completely modular. scalable Router and I/O system that can be configured to be completely redundant. SSL always recommends specifying MORSE for Broadcast facilities, however we also recognise that not all Broadcasters requirements or budgets support the power and sophistication of MORSE. The combination of MADI X-8 with Alpha-Link Live audio converters and MADI Xtreme audio interfaces, enables low cost audio distribution and audio asset sharing systems to be configured.

Film Composer

Scoring and mixing a large scale film soundtrack can involve hundreds of channels of audio. Workflow for a large scale film composer might involve using a main sequencer DAW and a main audio mix DAW simultaneously. Music elements, location sound, dialogue and Foley might all be delivered from high channel count sampler/DAW playback systems. SSL MADI I/O and Routing products can be combined to create an intelligent audio network which facilitates this workflow with transparent audio quality and near zero latency. An Alpha-Link audio converter provides local I/O, MadiXtreme & MX4 PCIe interfaces and Delta-Link MADI HD provide DAW I/O and the MADI-X8 provides a networked MADI Routing solution to control audio aggregation and distribution.

House of Worship Installation

Many Houses Of Worship present a sophisticated audio challenge. The main auditorium often has an installed Live Sound system but audio needs to be taken from this system and distributed to other areas where live to air audio and video broadcasts are prepared. Many also have sophisticated requirements for real time translation for re-broadcast around the world. The combination of MADI X-8 with Alpha-Link Live audio converters and MADI Xtreme audio interfaces, enables low cost audio distribution and audio asset sharing systems to be configured to meet these challenging requirements.

Multi Room Studio / Post Facility

Many multi-studio Film & TV audio production facilities have a main mix room and a series of smaller production rooms. Each room can be used individually to work on several projects in parallel or the main mix room can be used to combine all of the music, location sound, dialogue and Foley content created in the smaller rooms. All of the rooms also require access to a centrally stored library of audio content. In such situations it can be highly desirable to share audio between all of the various production areas in real time. SSL MADI I/O and Routing products can be combined to create an intelligent audio network which facilitates this workflow with transparent audio quality and near zero latency. Alpha-Link audio converters provide local I/O in each area, MadiXtreme & MX4 PCIe interfaces and Delta-Link MADI HD provide DAW I/O and the MADI-X8 provides a networked MADI Routing solution to control audio distribution and aggregation.
