Anubis can be expanded to work with any other Ravenna/AES67 devices on the network
Anubis is described by Merging Technologies as a groundbreaking product that incorporates the manufacturer’s analogue and digital audio, networked audio and DSP/FPGA technologies. It is a monitor controller that controls the network; a music recording hub that allows users to network a whole band or orchestra; and a low-latency mixer and processor.
Currently armed with two ‘missions’, further plug-ins will be released to aid users with their workflows. Monitor Mission provides monitoring of control rooms, editing rooms, mastering rooms, location recording and OB vans, while Music Mission is suited for music studios, recording studios, live concerts and onstage monitoring.
Anubis can also be expanded to work with any other Ravenna/AES67 devices on the network. From the touchscreen, users are given access to I/Os from any other Merging device on the network plus the ability to connect the I/Os from any other compatible AES67 device. Pairing these devices is said to allow Anubis to extend its I/Os as if they were built in. With its internal DSP, Anubis can reportedly manage up to 256x256 signal paths. Anubis also integrates into existing ANEMAN controlled ecosystems. It is compliant with ST2110 and ST2022.
Anubis comes in two variants: Anubis Pro for up to 192kHz, while Anubis Premium offers up to 384kHz and DXD plus DSD flavours up to 256kHz. A 32-bit signal path from input to output via the mixer is said to decrease latency and improve power distribution. Every input has a separate split gain control for sending the inputs to different paths.
