Availability: In stock

The perfect upgrade for your Pro Tools system, the DiGiGrid DLS interface is a comprehensive, all-in-one processing and networking hub. With two DigiLink ports delivering up to 64 inputs and outputs, a built-in SoundGrid DSP server and a network switch, the DLS is designed to give you more processing power by bridging Pro Tools systems with SoundGrid.

DLS works in one of two modes, I/O and SGP:

  • In I/O mode, the DLS is designed to act as a bridge between Pro Tools systems and the DLS's built-in DSP server. In this mode, the HD/HDX or HD Native system remains your playback engine, while the DLS appears as individual I/O units from which you can expand your studio by offloading your plugin processing to the built-in server and by connecting to additional SoundGrid I/Os.
  • In SGP mode, the DLS enables you to control a variety of DigiLink enabled I/Os, bridge your favorite DAW (Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Ableton, Pro Tools Native, etc.) with SoundGrid applications and ASIO/Core Audio drivers, and offload your plugin processing to the built-in DSP server.

In both modes, you can connect additional SoundGrid-compatible components to your system with a single Cat 5e/Cat 6 Ethernet cable.

DiGiGrid DLS comes with the complete SoundGrid Studio System software (the SoundGrid Studio Application, StudioRack, and the eMotion ST mixer).

  • Built-in SoundGrid DSP server and network switch
  • Dual DigiLink ports providing up to 64 digital inputs/outputs
