When used in _TITAN only ADAT sockets are in use.


Unfortunately _TITAN is so packed - Digital recall (internal digital connectors to module), rear XLR, IAC connector with relay switches (to select source, either back XLR or IAC), USB and Ethernet, that I fear that putting anything else inside is very risky.


Well, those are of course very good ideas, but I fear that 500 series enclosure is very challenging when it comes to size.



In general there is no additional routing inside. So _CALYPSO is "statically" connected to each slot, so e.g. "channel 1 DA -> slot 1 -> channel 1 AD". However using frong panel DB-25, you can go out from digital domain to whatever you would like, and then go back through the chassis (XLR), process audio through 500 series modules and return to digital domain. There will be also easy way to link modules using XLR cables, and based on need use those separately or linked (Advantage of digitally controlled relay switches which toggle between back XLR and internal IAC). In upcomming weeks we will explain all possibilities.


Apologies Sir for confusion. Yes, it is a converter, however in my dictionary this is still audio interface but with ADAT "interface" instead of USB or Thunderbolt. We will try to clarify this so it is perfectly clear!


Oh no, this is entirely different design, with very different sound! Tubes in original pultec are part of the circuit for particular purpose, in our design this section is just implemented using other components, however this is still fully passive design with "pultec" sound!

-Michal
Very much appreciate the thorough response! Look forward to hearing about all the possibilities So nearly persuaded... Would love internal routing but didn't really think about all the additional relay switches required.. Sure it's already packed as is.. Maybe one day!!

We will start to ship units to dealers at the beginning of April, which means that in EU it will be available right after, in USA about 1 month later (beginning of May).

I'm curious about something: I assume that we can only use one plugin instance per HW unit in our projects, is this correct? For instance, if we want to use _PROMETHEUS in the master bus AND our drum bus we would need two HW units, right?

Yes correct, 1 plug in connects to one HW unit.

As far as I'm concerned, WesAudio represents the absolute cutting edge of pro audio hardware design at the moment. There is no other company out there (Bettermaker aside) making anything that is even attempting to compete with the critical workflow advantages WesAudio's Titan and ng500 modules are bringing to the table.

Every product has been extremely well thought out, offering world class analog circuits with unprecedented flexibility, DAW integration, intuitive UIs, comprehensive feature sets, and beautiful compact designs, all at price points that are highly competitive with or lower than their non-digitally controlled counterparts. When you see WesAudio's stuff, it's hard not to feel like you are looking at the future of the entire pro audio industry. The features just make too much sense not to become the norm

Any reviews out?

I'm considering a Calypso as the form factor and connections suit my new workflow.

However a big leap of faith moving from my tried and tested Lynx.

Are there any real-world user opinions on this yet?

I thought the calypso could be a good solution to expanding an apollo twin for people who need that. I no longer have a twin, but it still crossed my mind as an option to keep outboard gear and ADAT expansion to a single 10 spacek 500 rack. I'd be interested in real world experience/opinions as well.
