Pyramix Digital Audio Workstation

Pyramix is widely acknowledged as the professional audio industry’s most advanced digital audio workstation. Pyramix offers unsurpassed sonic quality and a level of flexibility proven by its suitability and acceptance in post production, multi-channel live music recording, broadcast radio and CD/DSD music mastering.

Pyramix

Running on Windows® 10  64 bit,  Pyramix retains all the real-time editing and mixing capabilities of Merging’s Masscore Pyramix system and supports all the same audio formats including PMF, WAV, BWF, AIFF, OMF and CD Image files that can be mixed within the same project.

Pyramix has been primarily designed for audio editing on laptop or desktop computers, using their on-board audio hardware. Pyramix is therefore designed to be compatible with many audio interfaces supporting ASIO and can also be compatible with Windows WDM Direct Sound / Direct Capture devices, typically portable PCs on-board audio cards. For performances and stability under heavy loads, we recommend the use of ASIO compatible equipment, with typical buffer settings of 512 to 1024 Samples or more.

Fully configured Laptop, Rackmount or Tower PC’s are available from emerging specifically optimised for Pyramix with a wide choice of recommended audio I/O card.

MassCore

Pyramix MassCore™ is a bolt-on that can be added to any Pyramix version. At it’s very heart it is a truly real-time engine that does not rely on the Windows operating system for the core mix-engine processing, thereby avoiding all the inherent restrictions and latencies introduced by a general purpose operating system. Pyramix MassCore can be configured from just 16 to an astonishing 384 simultaneous live input and output channels (768 I/O) at 48kHz with a massive 384 channel mix-bus structure. Retaining an almost infinite number of real-time editing (virtual) tracks and with latencies far lower than any other Windows or Mac based system. MassCore offers a level of power, sonic quality and flexibility that outperforms every other DAW on the market. The MassCore engine is as powerful and as capable as a large format standalone digital console.
