Xonar D-KARAX Sound Card Released by ASUS
Gabriel Roşu / 4 years ago
ASUS has released the Xonar D-KARAX Sound Card. It is based on PCI-Express interface and offers 96KHz/24-bit playback, real-time audio processing, 7.1 audio and a 106dB SNR. You can also apply and hear audio effects in real-time with no playback lag, a sophisticated feature previously used only by professional recording studios.
The ASUS Xonar D-KARAX has a lot of features, such as studio-grade vocal effects that help aspiring singers immerse themselves in a professional performance environment. The clear and simple user interface lets users set up and start singing in just three simple steps, while studio-grade sound effects help singers sound like stars. Vocal effects such as high- and low-pass filters, voice equalization, dynamic boost, reverb and compression can be applied with a single mouse click, along with ready-made master profiles tuned by music engineers to suit different music genres.
A hardware-based Cirrus Logic CS47028C DSP means Xonar D-KARAX has extremely low microphone latency, so the voice stays in perfect time with the backing track. By comparison, sound cards that lack a hardware DSP can introduce input lag of up to 500ms.
Xonar D-KARAX also benefits from exclusive ASUS Hyper Grounding technology with a multi-layer PCB that eliminates noise by separating the power supply and digital signals from sensitive analog signals.
