Ashly Audio's new ne4400, ne4800 and ne8800 digital signal processors bring user-friendly setup and control to networked audio systems using Ashly's PC-hosted Protea NE Software via standard 10/100 Ethernet and RS-232 protocol. These latest additions to the company's NE (Network Enabled) Series offer a multi-channel routing matrix with microphone input, network audio and digital audio hardware options, plus an extensive menu of 32-bit/96kHz SHARC-based DSP that supports hot-plug software control.

The three standard units offer 4x4, 4x8, and 8x8 analog line input/output formats with 24-bit A-to-D and D-to-A converters and a high-performance analog audio path that provides a dynamic range of better than 114dB. Hardware options include four-channel mic/line inputs with software controllable gain and phantom power, CobraNet network audio input and output, EtherSound network audio I/O and AES/EBU digital audio I/O.

Running on multiple SHARC 32-bit processors at 48KHz or 96KHz sample rates, the comprehensive DSP library offers a menu of processing blocks that include an 8x8 matrix mixer; a full array of variable Q graphic and parametric equalization; crossover filters to 8th-order Butterworth, Bessel, Linkwitz and Notched-Linkwitz with up to 48dB/octave slopes; an extremely advanced automatic feedback suppressor; auto-levelers; compressors; matrix duckers; limiters; frequency-keyed noise gates; time delay up to 1,365 ms on every channel; and sine wave, pink noise and white noise generators. Ashly's Protea NE Software, running on the PC platform, permits hot-plugging any function into any channel block while running live audio with no latency or recompiling necessary. Computer or supported third party device interface is via 10/100 Ethernet and RS-232 protocol.
