"We have created a distinctive brand image for our flagship audio interfaces, so bringing Lyra into the fold was a natural next step," says Mark Evans, Prism Sound’s Sales Director. "Lyra is already very cool because it gives recording professionals easy access to Prism Sound's high quality audio conversion at a very cost effective price. The new look makes it even more desirable, while having the ability to control Lyra via our software app makes the unit much simpler to operate. The app provides a clearer, more user-friendly presentation in a re-sizeable window, making it easy to read on the latest 4K screens as well as on older computers."
Based on Prism Sounds awarded Orpheus interface, Lyra allows music recording professionals to access the power and sophistication of the Orpheus audio path and clock circuitry, but in a smaller package and at a much improved price point.
The Lyra 1 interface has two analogue input channels – one for instrument/line and one for mic/line – plus two DA output channels and optical-only digital I/O. Lyra 2 includes two AD input channels with switchable microphone, instrument or line input modes and four DA output channels. Both versions incorporate a new ARM Cortex processor design offering class-compliant USB interfacing that allows for seamless integration with both Macs and PCs. Both versions also offer digital volume control, a low latency ‘console-quality’ digital mixer for foldback monitoring and optical SPDIF capability.
Since June 2019, Prism Sound is now a part of Audio Squadron Ltd. Seattle-based companies Tracktion Corporation and 2JW Design joined forces with Prism Sound studio products and SADiE through the acquisition of these brands and created a new umbrella pro audio company for the group, now trading as Audio Squadron Ltd.
