Professional audio interface with 2 coaxial MADI and WordClock inputs/outputs

The Marian Seraph M2 MWX is a professional PCIe audio interface with 2 coaxial MADI inputs/outputs and WordClock connectors. This PCIe card is particularly suitable for professional use in recording studios and DAWs where the number of signal channels can quickly exceed several dozen and where an independent clock is important. With this module up to 256 channels on each card are possible. In contrast to the F-version of the M2, this basic version has electrical coaxial BNC MADI connectors instead of optical SC connectors. If the 256 signal channels are not sufficient for you, the M2 can also be expanded with other Marian cards. 24-bit resolutions and a sampling rate of up to 384kHz are supported. The MWX version of the M2 is distinguished by an additional WordClock clock connector, with which sample rates can be synchronized. The Multi-Client Driver Suite ensures very short access times in different software environments without different drivers causing a data jam at the signal processor.

256 channels - MADI makes it possible

The basic version M2 differs from the Seraph M2-F product line by its coaxial MADI connectors instead of optical SCs. Thanks to the two coaxial (BNC) MADI interfaces, up to 64 channels per cable and thus up to 256 channels (64 inputs and 64 outputs per MADI connector) are possible on each card, depending on the sample rate. Using a dedicated digital signal processor, the M2 offers precisely adjustable routing options for each channel individually, such as the choice of either the computer's processed playback signal or a latency-free copy of the signal instead. Volume adjustment for each individual channel is also no problem. The clearly arranged software helps to set the channels.

Three more soundcards expandable with TDM SyncBus

Are the 256 channels per card not enough for you? At high sample rates, you often reach the channel limits faster. The Seraph M2 series can therefore be connected to up to three other cards of the same Marian type via the TDM SyncBus on the top of the module. Or you can use adapter cables to expand your system with other Marian sound systems. The SyncBus can also be used to synchronize sampling rates of connected devices and to exchange start and stop signals.
Exclusive in the MWX version: Perfectly synchronous sample rates thanks to WordClock

Only the MWX version of the Seraph M2 series includes a built-in WorldClock with coaxial BNC interfaces. These allow you to synchronize the sample rates of other devices with the Seraph M2 MWX, either as clock generator (master) or as clock receiver (slave). This means that devices outside the Marian product range can also be brought into line with the interface, whereas the versions of the M2 without WordClock connection can be adapted to the application with

Marian -devices must be restricted.

Thanks to the WordClock signals, experimental circuits are also possible, which only work with an independent clock of the MADI signals. The clearly arranged clock software allows you to keep track of all clock signals. Sample rates, lock Status and any sync errors can be read out at each clock signal. The WordClock / Superclock module is connected to the PCIe card inside the case and requires an additional slot bracket, but no additional PCI interface on the motherboard. The expansion module also comes with a MIDI Sub-D interface.

No data jams with different drivers: Multi-Client Driver Suite

The driver software of the Seraph M2 series guarantees very short latency times for you, no matter in which driver software the plug-in card is used. Without an appropriate multi-client suite as in the case of digital signal processors, they often Marian lock when two signals simultaneously control the same interface of the processor. This often results in unnecessary latency times or error messages. But thanks to several driver interfaces of the driver suite you are not exposed to any additional waiting times.

The product manual is written in an understandable way and offers even laymen a good insight into the operation of the module. Ergonomic user interfaces of the software also ensure frustration-free use. And even in the event of a failed update, the built-in fail-safe technology saves your skin by automatically resetting the firmware to the latest functional status.

Highest manufacturing quality

With the Leipziger manufacturer Marian not only the design, but also the production of the module is completely in German hands and was not outsourced to Asia. Where large service providers abroad often produce on mass and accept product defects, you can call Marian a product tested for quality your own. Their products Marian therefore come with a 5-year warranty.
