For recording, mastering, DVD-audio, post-production, audio for video, synchronization,
analog and digital broadcast, measurement.
The LynxTWO incorporates the latest generation converter technology to create an interface capable of
precision never before acheived in a PCI audio card. With performance that exceeds popular stand-alone
converters many times its price, the three LynxTWO models set new standards for signal purity, versatile
synchronization, powerful hardware mixing, and support for a variety of multichannel formats including
AES/EBU, S/PDIF and ADAT.
The three LynxTWO models are identical with the exception of their analog input output configurations.
The LynxTWO-A model has four analog inputs and four analog outputs, accessible via a custom cable
with balanced XLR connections. The LynxTWO-B, with two inputs and six outputs, is an ideal choice for
mixing and post-production, including 5.1 or 7.1 Surround audio. With six high quality inputs and two
outputs, the LynxTWO-C is a powerhouse that is ideal for location recording and multitracking of small
ensembles.
Designed with video and film post-production in mind, the
LynxTWO offers extensive SMPTE longitudinal time code
implementation. The LynxTWO also supports Dolby® AC-3
and DTS through the Digital In and Digital Out ports.
The LynxTWO Mixer provides software control and visual
reference for all aspects of the LynxTWO. Powerful routing
capabilities of all inputs and outputs are controlled from this
application, which also shows realtime level indicators on
inputs and outputs.
Up to four LynxTWO’s can be installed and synchronized in
Windows computers. Optional LStream cards also provide
up to 16 additional digital inputs and outputs in AES/EBU
and ADAT formats.
