Hints & Tipps

When connected to a MADI-Card in your host computer you can do a full 48 I/O, using the internal 32 AD/DA’s of the Orion and additionally hooking further 16 I/O’s to the ADAT ports.

In such a setup the Orion will act both as a AD/DA converter as well as digital format converter – at the same time!

Btw, such format onverters (from MADI to ADAT) tend to cost roughly the same than the Orion … which first and formeost offers you 32 AD/DA’s.

Its quite amazing if you think about it.

dB says

There is no other Multi-Channel on the market today that sounds half as good as the Orion.

Period.

The various features it offers, such as MADI, ADAT, a brilliant clock, USB Interface, etc. – all these are amazing add ons.

If the Orion had none of these – it would still be a hell of a bargain.
