“The World’s Best Analog Section and Converters... Full Stop.

After hundreds of comparison tests made by some of the world’s most “golden eared” engineers, we can say this with a strong sense of confidence.

The Networked Audio range of converters brings Swiss-precision and un-ending attention to detail in every single component and signal path and results in the most astonishing of record and reproduction signal paths of any audio interface or converter available today.”

“Horus immediately impressed me with the build quality and ease of integration with my DAW. The routing, the control, plus the on-board I/O just make a stunning package which is equally at home in my studio or on the road. It’s a perfect partner for my Pro Tools system, but it all wouldn’t matter if it didn’t sound right. No question, this is the very best front-end I’ve used and it will be a part of many, many projects to come!”

Get the Basic Overview

Whether you are using a portable Pro Tools Native or a full blown HD|X system from AVID, The Networked Audio range of interfaces (Horus & Hapi for the uninitiated) is the ultimate front end to one of the most common DAW’s on the market.

What is The Networked Audio Family?

In very small boxes (2U and 1U respectively), the members of this family of products provide some of the most sonically pristine audio I/O, professional-grade synchronisation I/O and a flexible and intuitive routing matrix and digital format converter all wrapped together in an interface which can be accessed from any web-enabled device.

All of these boxes also come standard with RAVENNA / AES67 connectivity. In the most basic of terms, what this means for the end user is that once you plug a Horus or Hapi into your studio network, you can then pick up any input and output from the unit on any other DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) on that same network.

Why is it so good for Pro Tools users?

Sync over Ethernet

Our Networked Audio interfaces carry I/O for LTC (SMPTE), MTC and a video reference (Black & Burst), which are distributed using the RAVENNA/AES67 connection; this means that with any Networked Audio model, sync for your studio can run to any number of DAW’s across the network with ease!
