Pyramix is a digital audio workstation used by professional studios and engineers the world over for music production, mastering, TV and film post-production. Pyramix, in combination with its networked audio interfaces offers the only end to end solution on the market to produce music digitally with an audio format that sounds like analog to humans.
It enables music producers to give no compromise to their music throughout the whole production chain, and give them all the tools needed for a broad outreach including latest Next Generation Audio streaming formats such as Dolby Atmos.
Merging Technologies has worked with companies such as Flux Audio to bring into Pyramix astounding plugins available in any resolution and at near zero latencies.
Did you think it wasn't possible to have low latency in a computer?
Analog sound isn't just about sonic character, but also about immediacy. Electricity travels at 300 million meters per second and this is what you need to provide a musician with for a great performance. Merging Technologies developed the MassCore engine which allows your DAW to behave in real time. MassCore can be added to any Pyramix or Ovation system and brings in massive extra power, I/Os and ultra low latency.
Pyramix not only provides the most transparent analog-like DAW, it also provides you with cutting edge editing tools, such as the very unique source/destination mode which allows editing of huge multi track recordings at the speed of light just like it was a simple mono track.
REFERENCE MASTERING TOOL
Pyramix has rightfully earned its place as one of the only solutions for quality mastering for every format. The ability to process and deliver almost any file format, advanced album publishing features, Hepta SRC algorithm, full ISRC code editing, full CD/SACD authoring toolkits and Dolby Atmos® are just a few of the reasons why the world's top mastering suites use Pyramix every day.
MISSION CRITICAL RECORDING AND PLAYBACK
Live recording of unique occasions can be a stressful business so it is reassuring to know that many of the leading location recording specialists use Pyramix. Major sporting events or one-off gigs have to be captured without loss and Pyramix has a host of features that ensure a quick result, as well as eliminating many of the risk factors associated with using DAWs on location. RAVENNA/AES67 connectivity makes back-up recording easy to set up and the high track count makes sure that all the sources can be managed.
INTUITIVE, STATE OF THE ART CLASSICAL MUSIC EDITING
Musicians demand perfection in their recorded performances, so the fact that the vast majority of concert halls and opera houses have Pyramix in-house tells a story. Countless Grammy Awards have gone to classical engineers and producers who demand the very best editing features. Take logging on the session is only one of the items that speeds up the process of assembling multiple takes, but source and destination editing, crossfade tools and a comprehensive DSD workflow makes Pyramix the only practical choice.
ULTRA HIGH COUNT RECORD/PLAYBACK
Complex recording projects may require a lot of tracks to ensure that everything is captured perfectly. Higher sample rates reduce the number of tracks available but if you use Pyramix, you are ahead of the game. The performance of Pyramix Native is impressive but MassCore takes it far beyond the competition with 384 ins/outs at 1FS and 48 at DSD and DXD rates.
ULTRA HIGH RESOLUTION MIXING/RECORDING
There is no substitute for recording at the highest possible resolution. Even if the final delivery format is at a different rate, having a pristine recording for posterity should be the goal. Pyramix has been pushing the boundaries since the beginning. DSD has been one of the options since the earliest days of SACD and now the adoption of RAVENNA has made DSD256 a reality. DXD was jointly developed by Merging and Philips so they understand the technology. The best Sample Rate Converter in the business ensures that your recording will sound magnificent at whatever rate you want.
Latency is unavoidable in digital audio processing but keeping it to the minimum is an essential part of the design process. Pyramix Native performs impressively with our ASIO driver and one of Merging's Networked Audio Interface units. MassCore take this to another level with low to extra-low latencies from Live in to Live out. That is the Merging difference.
COMPACT RECORDING SOLUTIONS - PACK AND GO
Recording on location used to involve truck loads of gear. Recording devices have progressively shrunk over time but other items remained just as large. Capturing the recording on a laptop computer is a normal thing now, but you still have a ton of cable and microphone stands to carry around. Or you did until AoIP came to the rescue. Merging was one of the first to introduce powerful, but portable I/O solutions that just needed one Cat 5e cable. That meant the dream of carrying a whole recording rig on a plane or in a car became reality. RAVENNA ensures that the highest quality can be recorded easily on a portable rig. You still have the microphone stands but the rest of it fits in your suitcase!
