The HEDD may just be the best analogue to digital converter around. Audiophile grade signal path. Clean or sound changing – the sound is yours.
The Crane Song HEDD192 may just be the best analogue to digital converter available. Audiophile grade signal path. Clean or sound changing – the choice is yours.
HEDD – Harmonically Enhanced Digital Device, is a technological breakthrough in signal processing. It is engineered to provide the most musically pleasing sound with the capability of generating Tube, Analog and Tape characteristics in the digital domain. The Crane Song HEDD192 allows any user working digitally the ability to sound less digital, and more Analog in approach.
The front panel controls allow the user to select input source, sample rate, and continuously variable Triode and Pentode sounds. The Crane Song HEDD192 can operate as an independent effects processor or as separate A/D and D/A convertor with the harmonic generation process applied to either the A/D or D/A converter. The signal processor performs 24 Bit Processing on a digital or analogue source.
With the developent of the new Dave Hill 5th generation Quantum D/A conversion technology (which is featured in the new Solaris D/A Converter) this is now fitted as standard as the D/A. It has transformerless balanced analogue inputs and outputs, transformer isolated digital inputs and outputs, and uses separate power transformers and supplies for the analog and digital sections. The HEDD 192 will operate at sample rates from 44.1k to 192k. Applications include:
CD format preparation, DAW input and output, Mastering A/D and D/A converter replacement, tracking effects generation and mixing – warming or changing sounds in the digital domain.
