More Inputs, More Outputs, and SoundGrid Compatibility
The DiGiGrid IOX advanced audio interface delivers high-resolution monitoring in the studio and control room alike, with 12 mic/line inputs that feature broadcast/studio-quality preamps, 6 line outputs, and 4 powerful headphone outputs to provide independent mixes for each musician.
Connect the IOX to a SoundGrid server, and run up to hundreds of SoundGrid-compatible plugins with ultra-low, 0.8 millisecond latency—all integrated in your DAW of choice.
Native DAW with a DiGiGrid IOX
This setup shows a typical studio setup that includes a host computer with a Native DAW and a single I/O interface connecting mics, instruments, headphones and monitors.
One host computer, DiGiGrid IOX and a SoundGrid DSP server
You probably want to run more plugins. Perhaps you want to record small ensembles and then mix with a large number of plugins, or record and monitor with very low latency.
By adding a SoundGrid DSP server to your SoundGrid network you can offload your audio processing. This greatly increases the number of plugins you can use simultaneously. Plus, it enables you to use the eMotion ST mixer, which lets you create personalized monitor mixes from your DAW mix and from outside sources, and also allows you to open 64 StudioRacks and use them for low-latency monitoring.
One Host Computer, One I/O with a DSP Server, One Expansion I/O Unit, One DAW
Need more I/O channels? Need to run more plugins? need super-low latency recording with plugins in real time?
By adding the IOS's built-in DSP server to your SoundGrid network you can offload your audio processing. This greatly increases the number of plugins you can use simultaneously. Plus, it enables you to use the eMotion ST mixer, which lets you create personalized monitor mixes from your DAW mix and from outside sources, and also allows you to open 64 StudioRacks and use them for low-latency monitoring.
One host computer, DiGiGrid IOX and a DiGiGrid IOC
Add a DiGiGrid IOC and you pick up another 2 mic inputs, 16 AES inputs and outputs, 8 line inputs and outputs ADAT I/O, and 2more individual headphone outputs. Connect the IOC to the built-in Ethernet switch on the rear of the IOX. You can add up to eightSoundGrid I/O devices to a single host. Each of these can be accessed by any computer on the network.
Audio and clock pass through the same Ethernet cable. This means of distributing clock is called “Sync over Ethernet” (SoE) and isused between all SoundGrid devices. To clock the entire network to an external clock source such as house sync, use Word Clock or Digital In as clock master for the IOX. If the IOX is the SoE master, then the entire network will be locked to this external source.
Running Various DAWs Simultaneously Using a Single DiGiGrid IOX
This configuration is for running audio from multiple DAWs simultaneously and mixing them in real time.
Each of the four computers is connected to the DiGiGrid IOX via a 1 GB network switch using a single Cat 5e or Cat 6 Ethernet cables.
Every computer in a SoundGrid network uses the SoundGrid driver to stream audio into the SoundGrid network. In this setup the main host computer running the SoundGrid Studio Application patches between all host computers within the network and configures their ASIO/Core Audio driver ins and outs.
