The transform.engine Dante-connected server

UK - At last October’s AES Convention in New York City, Fourier Audio and DiGiCo announced that it would soon be releasing the transform.engine, a new Dante-connected server designed to run VST3-native software plugins in live environments.

Six months later, with positive reviews from touring professionals using beta test versions of the product, the two companies have announced that the transform.engine is now officially available for purchase through pro audio dealers worldwide.

“We are thrilled to have received wonderful feedback from our beta testers during the past few months and are eager to make the transform.engine available to engineers worldwide,” says Fourier Audio co-founder Henry Harrod. “We look forward to seeing how creatives utilize it effectively and harness the capabilities of the very best audio plugins for their projects.”

“The Fourier Audio and DiGiCo teams have eagerly anticipated the widespread release of the transform.engine, and we can’t wait for the live production communities to finally have the pleasure of reliably bringing their favorite studio processing to tours and events,” adds DiGiCo managing director Austin Freshwater. “The engineers that were given an early test drive of the product have all come back with fantastic compliments, and we know that this system is going to soon put smiles on a lot of faces at front of house.”

Housed in a 2U touring-grade chassis with dual redundant power supplies, the new transform.engine is a Dante-connected server designed to run VST3-native software plugins in a live environment, bringing premium studio software to live sound and broadcast applications. The new device gives engineers and creatives access to ‘the very best studio-grade processing on a robust platform that is specifically designed for the rigors and complexities of live productions.

The new Fourier Audio device is fully capable of operating in conjunction with virtually any professional digital console on the market via Dante, using the Windows/macOS application to control the engine. The transform.engine can also process audio standalone with no computer required.

Controlled remotely by a Windows/macOS application, with plugin user interfaces “teleported” and controlled in ultra-low-latency over the network, the product has been tuned to deliver the lowest-latency solution on the market for hosting VST3 plugins, while preserving the reliability and performance of the server.
