USA - 2020 sees Merging Technologies celebrate its 30th anniversary. The company has revealed it has a number of plans in the works to "celebrate Merging’s achievements in improving the recording and listening experiences for clients across the globe", with a series of special events set to be announced in the coming months.
Claude Cellier, Merging’s founder and president comments: “The spotlight is now on Anubis and we could not be more pleased with its reception, but there are many landmarks during those years of which our team can be justly proud. Innovation has been the key to our continued success.”
NAMM 2020 (Anaheim, 16-19 January) will see Merging+Anubis exhibit for the first time. Launched in time for AES Dublin, Prolight+Sound and NAB 2019, Anubis arrives in Anaheim on the back of several months of record sales and with several significant feature enhancements.
For Mac users, a new Virtual Audio Device is available that is compatible with later Mojave 10.14.5/10.14.6 and the new Catalina 10.15.x OS. This ensures that the top performance can be maintained with the enhanced features of the new operating systems, says the company. The ability to control the PreAmps remotely from any web browser is also a major convenience for many Anubis users and this is also available on the latest version of firmware.
Merging+Anubis Premium has been DXD compatible for some months but there were some challenges in completing a full DSD workflow. This is now available as a free of charge firmware update The relevance of Anubis to the NAMM attendee is obvious but other products from Merging should not be forgotten. Pyramix 12 is also nominated for TEC Award and offers the only practical DSD workflow available. Pyramix is additionally much favoured by the mastering community and the improvements to authoring and album publishing reflect that. The latest version also addresses immersive audio workflows that are increasingly important in gaming and live situations, with up to 7th Order Ambisonics options available. Improvements to the internal mixer and VS3 plug-in support for some popular FLUX products are also significant improvements.
Other Merging networked audio components continue to sell well and offer users of any DAW the way into AES67 and RAVENNA networks. The importance of IP networks to the professional world are well documented, but it is not always recognized how easy it is to gain the advantages in a home studio environment. Anubis is the affordable entry point, but adding Hapi or Horus can offer tremendous opportunities for easy network control and resource sharing in a larger facility, says the company.
