Zen Tour Synergy Core makes a new case for how much connectivity and computing power desktop audio interfaces can wield. Think of it as a portable rival to a professional studio rackmount interface in terms of everything, from its sound quality and FX processing capabilities down to its build and materials.
With 4x DSP and 2x FPGA processors handling up to 112 FX instances, 8 analog inputs, 14 analog outputs, S/PDIF and ADAT digital connections, and stunning 130dB dynamic range AD/DA conversion, the new Zen Tour sets new performance and audio quality standards in its category.
Despite the unit's extensive touchscreen functionality and convenient top-panel controls, the software Control Panel is the ultimate “mediator” between the Zen Tour Synergy Core and your preferred DAW. To take complete advantage of the unit’s capabilities, you are meant to handle tasks like gain adjustments, signal routing, effects processing, initial mixing, and metering from its intuitive, single-window environment. The resulting audio is routed into your DAW for recording in formats of your choice, such as multi-track, stem, and two-channel stereo.
