The Prism Sound Atlas is a world-class multi-track interface offering flexible expansion and unsurpassable sonic clarity. Using the latest generation of Prism Sounds trusted conversion, Atlas provides more preamps than Titan making it suitable for a wider range of recording scenarios.

The Atlas is a USB multi-channel interface aimed at multi-tracking applications featuring a similar feature set to Titan (including the MDIO expansion slot for optional Pro Tools HDX, AES and potentially other digital cards), Atlas will be perfect in the project and multi-track studio for recording as well as for mixing, stereo and stem mastering. The Lyra, Titan and Atlas models feature a 20 dB pad on each mic channel to accommodate high sound pressure level (SPL) applications such as drums or close-miked guitars or brass.

Prism’s low-noise, low-distortion, extremely neutral mic preamp design has gained a cult popularity amongst existing Prism Sound users and we are pleased to be able to offer a single box 8-channel solution for producers, artists and engineers demanding high-quality front-end with the added benefits of Prism Sound A/D and D/A conversion.

UNSURPASSED CLOCKING AND JITTER REJECTION

Prism Sounds history in developing test and measurement equipment for the audio industry has allowed our engineers to get a much deeper understanding of digital clocking and its associated issues.

DIGITAL MIXER WITH FLEXIBLE MONITORING

Atlas has a powerful built-in digital mixer that can be configured to provide a multitude of ultra-low latency feeds, Including foldback to performers, stereo and surround outputs.

MIC PREAMPS

The Atlas boasts 8 ultra-clean, low-noise microphone preamps that perfectly complement its transparent A/D conversion (with software-controllable phantom power, -20 dB pad and Overkiller limiter switches on each channel.)

FUTURE PROOF CONNECTIVITY

With a standard USB connection, Atlas can connect to the widest range of computers today and for the foreseeable future. Add to this the option of ProTools HDX and Dante modules for the most flexible and professional solution.

MULTI-CHANNEL I/O EXPANSION

Atlas & Titan support Prism Sound’s MDIO expansion cards, which provide alternative “host” connections. The “host” is usually a computer and the Atlas or Titan interface provides a means of connection between the host and the external analog and digital audio I/O ports.

The MDIO expansion slot provides an alternative host connection. It does not necessarily disable the USB port, but in the case of the Pro Tools interface MDIO-PTHDX, the USB port is switched off when the Pro Tools interface is to be used.

SOFTWARE

Atlas’ front panel gives a continuous visual indication of the unit’s main settings and levels, but in-depth control is managed from the Atlas Controller applet. This runs on the DAW computer, and can be popped up whenever adjustments are needed. The upper area of the applet shows a panel of ‘Global’ settings for the entire group of connected interfaces, and a panel of ‘Unit’ settings which is assignable to each connected unit in turn, using the enclosed drop-list. These settings are concerned with general parameters such as sync source and sample rate selection, metering and buffering modes. An ‘Identify’ button causes all the LEDs on the selected box to light, to assist with identification in multi-unit systems. To the right, there are large buttons for loading and saving setups, and for on-line help.
