Meet ORIA, the world’s first audio interface and monitor controller designed specifically with immersive audio in mind. Built for creating immersive audio mixes for formats such as Dolby Atmos, ORIA lets you calibrate, control and monitor multi-channel speaker arrays from stereo up to 9.1.6 and everything in between. Perfect for music, film, TV, game and VR production. Designed with a dual purpose, ORIA not only excels as a powerful USB-C audio interface providing 16 outputs for up to 9.1.6 mixing workflows, but can also effortlessly integrate into your existing studio setup as a standalone monitor controller via its ADAT Inputs. Flexibility where you need it. Working with multi-channel speaker setups requires a precisely calibrated room but let’s face it, calibrating your room is a difficult and time consuming process. But what if it didn’t have to be?
ORIA’s Advanced Speaker Processing lets you calibrate your room and create custom onboard calibration Profiles (presets) for any monitoring format from stereo to surround to 9.1.6 immersive setups, making reference checking your mix in different formats a breeze. Adjust the level of every speaker individually to ensure a balanced soundfield. Make sure audio from every speaker arrives at the mix position precisely at the same time. Accurately hear ALL of the bass and low end frequencies in your mix with ORIA’s bass management controls, featuring a per channel configurable crossover filter. Deal with unwanted acoustic issues and colouration to ensure a flat and consistent translation of your audio.
Add to that the ability to calibrate your room in one of two ways. Either create a Profile by manually taking room measurements and dialling in the calibration settings or take advantage of upgrading to SoundID Reference. Audient have teamed up with room calibration heavyweights Sonarworks to bring you a seamless integration with SoundID Reference letting you accurately measure and calibrate multi-channel setups in less than an hour. With a SoundID Reference Microphone and 60 day free trial of SoundID Reference for Multichannel software included, ORIA lets you create custom SoundID Profiles for different monitoring formats and target modes, load them into ORIA and take advantage of consistently accurate and low latency immersive audio.
An automated and user friendly guide helps you measure and calibrate your studio speakers using the microphone provided. Choose your calibration Profile and correct for the Dolby Atmos Music curve, flat frequency response or create custom profiles. Export up to 32 unique Profiles directly to ORIA’s internal memory, watch as your settings are automatically adjusted. Sit back and enjoy a consistent translation of your audio no matter what format you are working in. And the best part is, ALL of ORIA’s Advanced Speaker Processing, whether using manual or SoundID calibrations, runs directly off its lightning fast onboard DSP Dual Processor Architecture. Delivering low latency audio and freeing up your computer’s CPU for bigger and more demanding sessions. Unlock better performance and be more productive.
Easy to navigate, easy to control. ORIA gives you powerful new ways to truly take control of any stereo, surround or immersive environment courtesy of its beautifully simple software. Use Profiles to quickly switch between speakers, listening levels and target curves. Imagine instantly switching from your perfectly calibrated stereo nearfield speakers to a 9.1.6 immersive setup with Dolby X-Curve. Now, you can with a touch of a button. Fly around your session at high speeds with true immersive monitor control. Featuring colour coded speaker groups, individual & group speaker mute/solo, global Volume Control, Cut & Dim and a Global Delay (Lip-sync) for post production workflows. Keep an eye on your metering from multiple locations including ORIA’s front panel LCD screen, desktop software or iPad remote. Still need more detail? Expand ORIA’s desktop metering via an independent window, unlocking additional visual feedback.
ORIA integrates with the Dolby Renderer, letting you take control of the down mix functionality directly from ORIA’s user interface. Ideal for quickly checking your mix in different monitoring layouts, such as 7.1, 5.1, stereo and more. Never miss a beat with ORIA’s iPad Control App. The power of touch grants you remote access to all of ORIA’s control features from one centralised control hub. Adjust levels, audition speakers, switch profiles and monitor your metering – all directly from your desktop. Precise control without the complexity (coming soon to the App Store).
With a huge array of connectivity options, ORIA provides more than enough I/O to take on professional multi channel setups. Plug in your surround speakers via the line or AES outputs. Connect your nearfield speakers to the dedicated Stereo Outputs. And easily integrate an external interface or preamp using the ADAT inputs. Integrate into AoIP workflows with the optional Dante Card. BNC connections for integration into larger installations. 8 pairs of AES Digital Outputs for interfacing with Digital Speakers. 16 ADAT input channels for use as an external 9.1.6 monitor controller or traditional multi-channel recording. 16 Balanced Analog Outputs for up to 9.1.6 monitoring. Dedicated stereo outputs for non-immersive integrated near fields. Connecting via a high-speed USB connection, ORIA offers ultra low latency monitoring, and rock solid driver performance for both macOS and Windows. Providing up to 16 input channels over AoIP, ORIA’s optional Dante Card lets you quickly integrate with new or existing AoIP networks, making your move to immersive seamless. Ideal for large studio complexes and educational facilities.
