Summa/Artemis Light coreCalrec Audio has announced a 4U-high console core for its Summa and Artemis Light consoles.

The new offers improved ‘green’ credentials – using faster and more efficient processors, it now operates with five per cent lower power consumption and fewer fans, which are more easily accessible for maintenance. The new fans also have automatic speed control and ambient temperature-sensing, which enable them to run 8dB quieter at 25°C. There is even less noise at lower temperatures, and the fans operate at lower, less noticeable frequencies.

The rack’s cleaner design also has clearer status LEDs and labelling, with the added functionality of the Control Processor LAN sockets being independently configurable via the user interface. This provides simpler configuration of third-party controllers such as Calrec’s Assist.

Calrec also has a new single-slot modular Thadi card that fits into the 3U modular Hydra2 box. Not only does the card offer 64 bidirectional channels, but it includes a sample-rate converter.
