Ashly Audio Releases DSP Option Cards for PE-Series Amplifiers

Webster, NY – Ashly Audio, Inc., announces the release of two DSP Option Cards for the PE-Series amplifiers. Proteane DSP Option Cards use a SHARC 200MHz, 32-bit floating-point processor and operate from 48 to 96kHz with a 24-bit AD/DA. The Proteane DSP-1 XLR version and Proteane DSP-2 Euroblock version offer both analog and digital (AES3) inputs and two additional processed output channels for driving two more amplifier channels.

Proteane DSP cards have an extensive DSP library including: graphic, parametric, notch and shelving equalization filter types, Bessel, Butterworth and Linkwitz/Riley high and low pass crossover filters with slopes of up to 48dB/octave and all pass filters for phase correction. Additional processing blocks include: signal delay, compressor/limiter, gate, matrix mixer, signal generators (sinewave, white and pink noise) and metering.

A “Click and Hot-Plug” user interface allows you to select any processing block and place it wherever required in your signal chain. The process is seamless and in real time, with no need to wait for your system to recalculate or recompile its settings.

By adding a Proteane DSP Option Card to your PE-Series amplifier, you have just simplified system implementation for many applications in live sound, commercial sound reinforcement and installations. Best of all, standard Ethernet protocol, a PC and Ashly’s easy to understand and navigate Proteane Software is used to control everything. Several layers of security control allow you to determine who can access system settings and also define the limitations of that access.

In addition to the Ethernet control, remote control via hard-wire and contact closure terminals to accommodate requirements for local operation is provided. These include remote level control, power standby/power down and recall of up to three presets.

Installation is quite simple. Or, PE amplifiers may be ordered direct from the factory with either DSP Option Card already installed.

— With over a thirty year history, Ashly Audio Inc. is recognized as a world leader in the design and manufacturing of quality signal processing equipment and power amplification for use in the commercial sound contracting and professional audio markets.
