Sound4 PULSE PCIe Card – 3-Band Processor

2.418 2.170 Με Φ.Π.Α

The SOUND4 PULSE is a three-band processor and the smallest device in the FM product line. It is particularly well-suited to the following uses:

For small radios, as a principal processor. It is fully compliant with radio broadcast standards while at the same time having a strong, clear, and balanced sound.
For transmitter finalization, with a SOUND4 PULSE located in the studio. All radio standards are met.

For radios seeking natural but powerful tonalities.
As a web radio processor, thanks to its algorithms, specially optimized for this kind of application. Furthermore, its low cost makes it affordable for any radio station wishing to set itself apart from other stations.

As a small standby processor.
The SOUND4 PULSE can thus be used as an audio broadcaster thanks to the PCIe entry driver, as a processor thanks to the processing functions and as an Audio streamer thanks to the streaming option.

Product Description

SOUND4 PULSE PCIe card

100% autonomous in terms of resources – the card only requires power from the PC.
4 inputs – AES from 32 to 192 kHz, analog, IP (Livewire or SOUND4 IP CONNECT), and PCI (audio driver).
Mixing of inputs and automatic safety function.
5 simultaneous and independent outputs – TX1, TX2, AES, Analog IP (Livewire or SOUND4 IP CONNECT), and PCI (audio driver).
Routing of signals for outputs.
Relay switch for automatic by-pass.
Digital AES/EBU synchronization input.
DSP computing power – 4 Giga Flops (Sharc 40 bits with floating point).
GUI and driver compatible 32 & 64 bits – Windows 7, Windows 8 & 8.1, Windows 10, 2008 R2, 2012 and Linux (Debian)
Multicard driver (the number of PCIe slots will be equal to the number of cards admissible in the same PC).
Start-up time of the SOUND4 PULSE card – 2 seconds max to being on air.
100% upgradeable to IMPACT. While updating the card, the sound is interrupted for only two seconds.

User-Friendly Control Interface

The sound setting from one single screen – you no longer need to open and close windows to go from one function to another.
Two modes – Basic and Advanced. Basic – provides simplicity and rapidity; Advanced – allows you to explore all of the processor functionalities. There are also ultra-rapid VU meters for true control over modulation.
Unlimited “Undo/Redo” versioning function for presets with the possibility of recall.
Innovative “compare” function with reference notion.
Log function for presets.
A readable and interactive diagram.
A remote connection manager to control several processors.
Works with the following operating systems – WXP SP3, W7 32&64 bits, W8 32&64 bits, WS 2008 R2, WS 2012, Linux (Debian).

Processing:

Input State
The SOUND4 PULSE has four inputs – Digital, Analog, IP (Livewire or SOUND4 IP Connect), and PCI.

On the software interface, the input currently in use is indicated by a triangle on the left side of its name.

2-Band AGC
With the SOUND4 PULSE, the first processing function is the 2-Band AGC – automatic gain control whose main purpose is to stabilize the loudness level applied to the input of the processor and prevent noticeable level differences between recent and old titles.

Tone FX
The Tone FX makes coloring of sound before dynamic processing possible. To do so, it groups together two types of processing functions:

A 4-band parametric equalizer;
An effect system making it possible to strengthen low frequencies and high frequencies.
The two functions offer results that are entirely different, which is why they are gathered on one single screen.

In Basic mode, use of the four parametric equalizers is simplified to the maximum. Only the gain for each correction is accessible. For FX Bass and FX Treble, the dosage of the effect is also made accessible.

In Advanced mode, users have access to all equalizer parameters (gain, frequency, and Q factor).

Stereo FX
SOUND4 PULSE has a true stereo enlarger, 100% mono-compatible. Its role is to sublimate the existing stereo image. It will thus never create stereo in mono sources.

In addition to embellishing the stereo image, it also has a 3-band stereo image limiter acting on the control of the energy transmitted by the stereo sub-porter at 38 kHz. This unique functionality limits issues currently caused by traditional enlargement processes. The stability of reception in areas disturbed by multiple routes is thus greatly optimized.

The 3-Band Process
The 3-band Process is the heart of dynamic processing. With SOUND4 PULSE, a single algorithm guarantees the gain in each of the bands in order to complete sound stabilization. “Coloring” is controlled by the Fidelity parameter. Thus, it is possible to have a purist and a colored sound texture.

The 3-band Process is achieved through the revolutionary algorithm S.I.S. (Sound Impact System), which makes it possible to maintain the authenticity of the original sound attacks.

The 3-Band Limiter
The main purpose of the 3-band Limiter is to prepare the work of the final limiter. It is also provided with a very powerful predictive algorithm, which has been simplified to the maximum so that it is not encumbered with useless parameters.

The Final Limiter
The Final Limiter comprises two sections – one for FM applications and one for HD applications.

The FM Section consists of a Bass Clipper, guaranteeing powerful bass without distortion, an FM limiter, and an MPX limiter.

The HD Section is specifically designed for high-quality digital applications (HD/DAB/DRM). This is a look-ahead type of limiter and in this mode, the outputs are not limited to 15 kHz.

Assignment of Outlets

The outlets of SOUND4 PULSE are fully assignable. For example, the analog outlet may replicate the signal which is applied to the analog input, the digital outlet delivers an HD signal, the TX1 outlet delivers the MPX signal and the TX2 outlet drives the 19-kHz pilot signal.
