The new Impulse core is Calrec's next generation audio processing platform. The Impulse core is a very powerful audio processing and routing engine with AES67 and SMPTE 2110 connectivity. The Impulse core is compatible with existing Apollo and Artemis control surfaces, providing a simple upgrade path for existing Calrec customers.
Type R is a brand new, modular, expandable, IP-based radio system from Calrec Audio. It utilises standard networking hardware and soft panels which can be tailored to operator needs. With a simple 2U core with integrated I/O resources, a single core can power up to three independent mixing environments. Whether used as independent studio consoles, microphone processors or utility mixing, the ability to use multiple mixing engines combined with the flexibility of the AES67 compatible network, provide all the power you will ever need.
