Anybody using Pyramix?

Quote from the website http://www.merging.com/

""As an example of the immense processing power available in Pyramix, it has the capability to offer true record, editing and mixing capability in 32 bit floating point at 352.8 kHz operation. Pyramix is the only system in the world that can achieve this and therefore it is the only system capable of multi-track DSD/SACD recording, editing, mixing and mastering in 1 bit 2.8MHz DSD signals, and even in 5.1 surround sound. Whether it’s Multi-track music record/editing, Post-production for Film and Television, or CD, DVD, or SACD mastering, there is a configuration of Pyramix that will meet your specific needs."""



Today I had a call with my regular gear pimp and I asked him about the Motu 24 in/out ADA and we had a discussion about PT HD. He asked me, why don't you go with Pyramix?

My question to you, all the greatest and most experienced engineers of this very planet
Anybody out there using Pyramix? your opinion(s) please

Peace, Han

Despite it's a PC based system, i'm very interested in it. Has some cool PT-killing features

The only place where I've seen Pyramix used is The Cutting Room, Stockholm, and they do mastering.

Pyramix is primarily used in the Mastering and Post industries.... In both of those markets, it has pretty substantial use.

it looks to me like you can build a daw with the cards and just get something like a apogee 16x for conversion and you have a daw that will blow all the rest away.


check it out here.

Gotta call a dealer or Merging directly... They generally don't advertise prices... While cheaper than a PT HD rig, it is still a pretty pricey rig. Just the Mykerinos cards will run you close to $2K... When I looked into it a few years back (before I went Sequoia), the rigs started at about $7K or so for cards and software only. I don't know if those prices have changed recently.
