Metric Halo has revealed its 3D Upgrade Expansion board. The new release is compatible with all existing Metric Halo interfaces and will be shipping in Q3 2018.
Hardware Improvements include:
USB Audio: Until now, MH interfaces have relied on Firewire connectivity for data transfer. With the 3D upgrade, the internal audio interfacing board is replaced with a brand new updated circuit, sporting the brand new state-of-the-art USB-C connector.
MH Link: Each 3D upgrade card comes equipped with MH Link technology, a new ultra-high bandwidth means of interconnection for daisy-chaining multiple Metric Halo interfaces with astonishingly low latency.
MH EdgeBus: Not only does Metric Halo understand that different users will have different connectivity requirements, they know that requirements can change – from venue to venue, studio to studio and year to year. With this in mind MH has developed a new 3D powered ‘EdgeBus’ programmable expansion slot capable of housing cards to extend your digital I/O in almost any fashion you desire. ADAT, MADI, SPDIF and MIDI all get a spot.
Software Improvements include:
MH EdgeBus: MH has developed a new 3D powered ‘EdgeBus’ programmable expansion slot capable of housing cards to extend your digital I/O in almost any fashion.

MH Mixer: Metric Halo’s indestructible software mixer capable of overseeing 128 input x 64 bus multi-box unified all at zero-latency.
