The Lynx Hilo ("Hee-lo") USB is an AD/DA Converter with 16 channels of mastering-quality I/O, monitor output, world-class headphone amp, plus connections for AES, S/PDIF & Optical I/O, all in one 1/2-rack space. Mac/PC compatible.Hilo is Lynx’s fourth generation converter and the product of thirty years of analog design experience. This experience, along with the latest components and design techniques result in stunning and verifiable specifications and audio quality.
Multiple Analog Outputs
The main Line outputs are supported by separate Monitor and Headphone outputs. Each output has a dedicated D/A converter to provide the best possible audio quality and the option of creating independent mixes. This is useful for vocal overdubbing, monitoring or pre- and post-effects mixing, and switching between monitors during mixing.
The included LT-USB LSlot card provides 16 digital I/O channels via USB 2.0. The optional LT-HD card (for Pro Tools|HD®) incorporates up to 32 digital I/O channels. Hilo offers AES/EBU via standard XLR connectors. S/PDIF I/O is available via coax or optical connections. The optical I/O can also be used for 8 channels of ADAT I/O. All Lynx interfaces work with both Mac and PC platforms.
Onboard 32 x 32 Digital Mixer
Each digital output is an independent signal generated by the on-board hardware-based low-latency 32 X 32 mixer. This mix engine provides the ability to mix any or all inputs to any output and provide real-time level status.
Flexibility via the LCD Touch Screen
In contrast to the concentrated and intricate back panel, Hilo’s front panel is elegant in its simplicity. It has a power switch, headphone jack, multipurpose control and a 480 x 272 pixel high resolution LCD touchscreen. This high-resolution screen does a lot more than simply replace the buttons on the front panel of most other converters. Of course it handles the basic settings and routing functions, clocking and level settings.
A second meter screen shows just two larger bar-graph style stereo bar meters. Any input or output set can be assigned to each meter. In addition to bar-graph meters common on most converters, Hilo’s touchscreen is able to show more traditional metering types, such as old style VU meters. Also in development are diagnostic screens, such as real time analyzer, phase meter and loudness meter. As with all other Lynx products, Hilo is FPGA based, meaning new features, capabilities and graphics can be added at any time with a simple download.
The 480 x 272 LCD touch screen offers control, monitoring and diagnostic tools never before available on a converter. As Hilo is FPGA-based and field upgradable, new screens and future options will be offered via a simple download. The multifunction rotary control provides quick control of headphone and monitor volume as well as other contextual functions.
