Delta 66

Professional 6-In/6-Out Audio Card with Digital I/O

The Delta 66 delivers 24-bit/96kHz to your desktop, complete with digital I/O for pristine file transfers and surround sound passthrough. The rugged external breakout box gives you the convenience of making connections to the four 1/4” TRS analog inputs and outputs right on your desktop—no more fumbling behind the computer.

36-bit Embedded DSP

All Delta cards contain a 36-bit embedded DSP enabling a software-driven patchbay/router for all analog and digital I/O—all with extremely fast throughput for low-latency software monitoring. A single unified control panel provides settings for clock and sample rates, buffer sizes, individual signal levels for every input and output, adjustable +4dBu/-10dBV pad controls and digital I/O control on up to four installed Delta cards. All controls are also easily accessible through most professional audio software applications for seamless integration and operation.
