Analogue outputs

Parent chapter  Previous page  Next page


Orpheus provides eight analogue output channels on TRS jacks, with dual switchable output level to allow connection to professional or consumer line-level equipment.  Connection to unbalanced equipment is automatically accommodated by a level-compensation 'bootstrapping' circuit.


In normal operation, the eight analogue outputs are fed directly with individual signals from the host PC or Mac; however, it is possible to feed the outputs from local digital mixers within the Orpheus hardware if desired - this is described in the Output mixers section below.


It is also possible to assign a level control to any desired outputs, primarily for use as a monitor volume control - this is described in the Assignable level control section below.


Setting of analogue output levels, as well as activation of output mixers and assignment of the level control are all managed in the Outputs Setup tab of the Orpheus Control Panel applet.
