The quest for a budget balanced digital to analog converter has been an on going for quiet some time. The benefits on an external DAC for a stereo application are well known in the audio industry, it just comes down to how much one is willing to spend and what features they are looking for. The first balanced DAC that I was able to get my ears on was the great Neko Audio D100. This piece of equipment is basically flawless, but since it lacks a USB input, may not be perfectly suited for some PC audio listeners. After many hours on the internet looking at countless balanced DAC from many manufactures, I happened upon the Matrix mini-i DAC sold by Tam’s Audio on eBay. read more…

Solid State Logic Matrix

Solid State Logic Matrix

Giant consoles are certainly not extinct. They remain an invaluable resource to making certain kinds of productions and to making certain stages of productions.

Sometimes the most innovative products are at first the most misunderstood. Through my process of reviewing the new small-format SSL Matrix console, I realized what a gaping hole of functionality there has been in project studio land ever since the diminutive DAW replaced the console as the producer’s production centerpiece. SSL calls Matrix “the new standard in project studio integration,” and I agree. There are other audiophile-quality analog/digital hybrid systems that interface with DAWs to a finite degree of repeatability and automation, as are there a multitude of dedicated digital audio workstation controllers. Matrix is the first offering from a top console manufacturer surgically aimed at the professional project-studio-based producer whose analog gear and DAW are equally integral to making records.

Matrix will most immediately appeal to those who aspire to use or have used fullfeatured control surfaces or mixing consoles, but it might just convert some serious mouse draggers, too. read more…
