Taking advantage of the latest FireWire technology, the IF-FW/DM is a computer interface card for the TEC award-winning DM-24 Digital Mixer. Using this card, studios can connect their DAW directly to the DM-24 with a single FireWire connection, adding powerful mixing, automation and processing capabilities to virtually any computer recording system.

For recording engineers and musicians who are comfortable working on a mixing console, using the DM-24 to control their recording software is an extension of the way they work. Already equipped with HUI emulation for DAW control, the IF-FW/DM allows the DM-24 to patch 24 channels into and 24 channels out of most DAW applications, bypassing the need for expensive audio interfaces. The DM-24 offers 32 input channels - 60 inputs during mixdown - allowing DAW users to incorporate the synthesizers, effects processors and recorders they've learned to rely on in their DAW sessions.

The processing capabilities of the DM-24 free the computer's CPU to add tracks and plug-ins to the recording project. As recording software continues to add tracks and plug-ins get more complex, you can use the DM-24 to handle the mixing, EQ, compression and other processing tasks it excels at. The powerful automation system of the DM-24 also alleviates the processing pressure on the DAW, and many users prefer the DM-24's automation system over even very high-end consoles.

A second FireWire jack allows other FireWire devices to be daisy-chained on the same IEEE-1394 buss. There's even a MIDI Input and Output for controlling synths and other devices from your DAW software, or for controlling your DAW with the DM-24's HUI emulation.

The IF-FW/DM replaces thousands of dollars worth of computer audio interfaces with a simple, integrated solution. Your studio gets the editing and plug-in power that DAW systems deliver while keeping the flexibility and speed that recording consoles provide. Professional recording facilities know that using a mixing console with their DAW is often a more efficient, flexible and better-sounding solution than working with virtual mixers. By adding the DM-24 with an IF-FW/DM installed to your DAW system, you allow the DAW to do what it does best.
