Audio processing Blade
Part of the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network, the IP-88VE occupies a single rack space, but packs an impressive complement of eight fully independent Vorsis Embedded three-band stereo audio processors. Each processing chain consists of a four-band parametric equalizer followed by a crossover and three bands of compression. The compressors each feed their own limiters, whose outputs are then fed to a broadband lookahead limiter for tight peak control. The Blade has its own local I/O, with eight stereo pairs of AES digital audio in and out, and can function as a standalone processing engine. Because it's a Blade, it can also instantly configure itself as part of a new or existing WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network, making its processing power available throughout that network. The IP-88VE is configured and controlled over Ethernet using a computer.
