HEDD, short for Harmonically Enhanced Digital Device, is a technological breakthrough in signal processing. It is engineered to provide musically pleasing sound with the capability of generating tube/analog sounds in the digital domain. HEDD gives any user who works with digital the ability to sound less digital and more analog.
* High-quality 24-bit A/D and D/A Convertors
* 24-bit Processing
* Adjustable Triode, Pentode and Tape sounds
* Digital I/O, AES and S/PDIF
* External WC Sync Input and Output
* 22 Element VU Metering
* Analog Tape Compression
The front panel controls allow the user to select input source, sample rate, and continuously variable triode and pentode sounds. The HEDD can operate as an effects device or as separate A/D and D/A convertor with the harmonic generation process applied to either the A/D or D/A convertor.
The signal processor performs 24 Bit Processing on a digital or analog source.
HEDD has transformerless balanced analog 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 preparation, work station input and output, DAT machine A/D and D/A convertor replacement and effects generation (warming or changing sounds in the digital domain). HEDD can be used in tracking, mixing, and mastering.
Note: HEDD-192 has been replaced by HEDD Quantum
