Emanate Audio - Cerberus 500 series Analog/Digital with MIDI Chassis [Kickstarter]

Hey everyone! We announced our 500 series analog and digital chassis at NAMM and are getting ready to release it. There was a thread started a few months back by another user with questions about Cerberus, our 8 slot 500 series chassis with analog and digital I/O. Emanate Audio wanted to give the audio community a chance to ask questions and in addition let people know that you'll be able to get one pre sale and it will be discounted below what you'll be able to get it for at dealers. We’re also kicking off a social media give away contest! Here's the details of the chassis. Also feel free to stop by Emanate Audio | 500 Series Rack to see it.

Cerberus is an 8 slot 500 series chassis that has selectable analog I/O and digital I/O via ADAT or SMUX. The AD converters are always active. It also has MIDI I/O to the first 4 channels (think control of analog hardware without needing a USB or MIDI cable hanging off the front panel). In addition to being able to choose either analog or digital inputs, there is a “CHAIN” option to select the previous module’s output. We don’t want to get to wordy here, just giving you the basics of what Cerberus is capable of. Check out the site for deeper details, application suggestions and more.

Social Media links are below the specs so make sure to connect with us. If there are questions or application ideas let us know here or there.

Sorry for the delay! I didn't see your post above until now. Yes, we are selling them on Kickstarter right now for $1000 instead of the $1299 MAP that they will sell for when we allow dealers to start selling and advertising them. Let me know what questions you may have about it.
