The Beast

Analog-Style Mixing

In der Hardware jedes Seraph- und Clara- Soundsystems ist der Beast DSP Mixer integriert. Damit sind für alle Eingangssignale und auch die Wiedergabesignale der DAW wie bei einem analogen Mischpult latenz-freies Routing, EQ Bearbeitungen, Pre-/Post Aux Summen und viele weitere Funktionen realisiert.


Dank Transferroutinen die speziell für die Übertragung von HD Audio entwickelt und optimiert wurden, ist die Seraph 8 das ultimative Bindglied zwischen analogem Equipment und moderner DAW.

Für die nahtlose Integration dieses 16 Kanal Soundsystems in das Studio sorgen wahlweise symmetrische TRS oder XLR Anschlüsse. Masterkeyboards und externe Klangerzeuger können zudem an die 2 MIDI Ein- und Ausgänge der MWX Version angeschlossen werden. Mit Auflösungen von bis zu 24 bit und 192 kHz, Echtzeit DSP Funktionen sowie der Möglichkeit mehrere Systeme zu kaskadieren, ist die Seraph 8+ eine nachhaltige Investition für jedes Digitalstudio.

Realtime Mixing and EQ

Each input signal of the sound system can appear on up to 8 mix sums and be played back via any number of outputs without delay. The BEAST Mixer also adds playback signals from any DAW latency-free. Inside the hardware and for each signal, sonic processing is available with up to 4 parametric EQs.

Expansion options

If several Seraph 8 are installed in a computer, they appear as a combined sound system to an ASIO application. Depending on the performance of the computer, 128 high-quality analog channels can be realized in this way. In the Beast Mixer, up to 8 audio signals can be exchanged with other Seraph or Clara sound systems (e.g. Clara D) and thus also be integrated for the use with ASIO.

Fast and Reliable Multi-Client Treiber Suite

The continuously enhanced driver includes multi-client support for ASIO 2.2 as well as multi-channel WDM audio / WASAPI with the lowest latencies in all software environments. This ensures that multiple audio applications can access the sound system simultaneously via the same or different driver interfaces.

Powerful and Future-Proof

Every MARIAN sound system is a quality product developed 100% in Germany and manufactured according to DIN EN ISO 9001. This is guaranteed by its warranty period of 5 years.
