Hermes

Mastering Router with dual Parallel Mix

Hermes revolutionizes mastering. Now it is possible to have an audio signal processed by up to eight 2-channel processors in any order that can be stored. At the push of a button you can compare up to four complex processing chains.

Connect, route, store, compare

Hermes accelerates mastering workflows in an unprecedented achievable way. The time-consuming replugging of the patchbay alone had made true comparison almost impossible.

Now you can change, store and compare processing chains in seconds. All with real buttons, relays and without additional software.

Simply push the processor buttons A to H in the order in which the audio signal should pass through the processors and store it. 

All processors can be named for a better overview. The name always appears briefly in the display when an insert button is pressed.

Free routing of two parallel mix stages

Hermes has two parallel mix stages that can be freely assigned to each of the eight processors and stored with a processing chain.

This means that even two compressors with different parallel mix settings can be compared quickly and easily.

The routing is completely passive with gas-encapsulated and gold-plated high-end relays.

All active stages, such as the input/output stages and the parallel mix stages work in 120V technology.

Sends & Returns

The stereo channels are strictly separated on two boards to achieve the highest possible channel separation.

The inserts are connected with XLRs for the first four stereo processors and with DB25 for the second four stereo processors.
