A major firmware update has been released for DirectOut’s Prodigy.MC modular audio converter and Prodigy.MP multifunction audio processor. Originally planned solely for Prodigy.MP, the update is said to considerably expand the potential application scenarios of Prodigy.MC by adding FastSRC and Enhanced Automatic Redundancy Switching (EARS), invaluable features in live sound applications and a “life-saver” in critical situations.

FastSRC is a bidirectional, low-latency asynchronous sample-rate converter for MADI and Network I/Os that allows two digital interfaces of a device to work in different clock domains. It combines good sound quality with very low latency of less than 0.15ms. Additional features in the firmware release include MIDI-Matrix, with support for MIDI-over-MADI tunnelling, sine wave, pink noise and white noise generators, an LTC to MTC converter and Levelmeter speed configuration.

“Besides finalising the already large feature set of Prodigy.MP, we even added a bunch of new functions,” said DirectOut CEO/CTO, Claudio Becker-Foss. “Some of them, like the Levelmeter speed configuration or the LTC-to-MTC converter, were implemented as an immediate response to the increased remote production requirements that have arisen from the COVID-19 pandemic. The new firmware makes the product unequalled on the market and ready to face those new challenges. The quality of the FastSRCs exceeded our expectations and we are thrilled to implement this outstanding feature also into Prodigy.MC.”

Alongside the firmware release, a new version of the globcon control software is also available for free download. This is required in order to manage all of the new functions brought to the Prodigy Series by the firmware update.
