M Audio Releases Delta Series Bass Management

Multi-format surround playback is now supported from Delta control panel By DMN Staff Writer
M Audio, the pro audio division of Midiman, Inc., has announced a driver update for the Delta series of audio cards that includes bass management for surround playback. Delta audio cards that have eight analog outputs, such as the Delta 410, Delta 1010, and Delta 1010LT, can benefit from this new addition to the Delta Control Panel using any WDM compliant operating system, i.e., Windows XP, 2000, or ME.

Bass management is a function in every home theatre system, filtering the low end from the satellite speakers and summing it with the subwoofer (LFE) channel. Now, when playing back multi-channel audio from any CD/DVD player that decodes surround material such as Dolby Digital or DTS, the Delta Control Panel will handle this task with a variety of user controls, such as selectable crossover frequencies per speaker group, delay settings to compensate for speaker placement, bass boost/cut, and global volume control for the surround speaker setup. Users can now plug directly into powered speakers for a true surround experience.


The new Delta driver with bass management is available for download from www.midiman.com.

Pricing for the Delta multi-channel PCI audio cards ranges from an MSRP of $269 for the Delta 410, to $499 for the Delta 1010LT, and $799 for the Delta 1010. All Delta audio cards feature drivers for Windows XP, 2000, ME, 95/98, and NT, ASIO, ASIO2, Direct Sound, EASI, multi-client & multi-card drivers for all Windows OS, Gigasampler, Mac Sound Manager and Mac multi-client/multi-card ASIO.
