Pure Analyzer System – The Next Generation RTA (Real Time Analyzer) System

 

The Flux:: Pure Analyzer System is a network-driven modular RTA-system providing an extensive range of analyzer options for any imaginable audio analysis and measurement applications.

 

For maximum flexibility and efficiency, Pure Analyzer presents the option to separate the signal acquisition from the analysis utilizing a Sample grabber plug-in, and in addition to the Sample grabber plug-in, Pure Analyzer also provide I/O support for ASIO and Core Audio.

 

Sample Grabber

 

Sample grabber is a standard DAW plug-in available in all common formats (VST, AU, RTAS and TDM) that acquires the source and response signals and sends the signal through the network using the ZeroConf/Apple Bonjour protocol.

 

You can insert as many instances of Sample grabber plug-ins as required, on the same DAW, different DAWs, and even different computers altogether, and the Sample grabber also support surround configurations. The network configuration setup for the Pure Analyzer System is entirely automatic and transparent to the user.

 

The audio transport requires approximately 1.4Mbps for each channel at a sample rate of 44.1kHz, so a properly configured standard Ethernet 100Mbps network should be more than sufficient to handle most cases. A 5.1 configuration at 96kHz demands a little less than 20Mbps. Naturally these requirements do not apply when using both Sample grabber and analyzer on the same hardware.

 

Pure Analyzer Essential

 

The foundation of the Pure Analyzer System is a standalone application, Pure Analyzer Essential, which can be extended with modules for Live, Metering/Loudness and Surround analysis, performing the graphic analysis rendering using a GPU-efficient 2D/3D graphic engine. The engine is based on the OpenGL standard optimizing the audio-to-visual experience utilizing the GPU on the built in graphics card.

 

The Pure Analyzer Essential application receives the sample feeds from the Sample grabber and analyzes them in real time. The Pure Analyzer provides the option to receive data from several different Sample grabber plug-ins on the network, and analyze the received data in parallel by selecting the actual corresponding Sample grabber to be the current source for the analysis with a simple button click. In addition to this, the input streams from the physical ASIO/Core Audio I/O can also be selected as the current source for the analysis in the same simplistic fashion.

 

Add-on Modules

 

As a complement to the Pure Analyzer Essential, three different add-on modules, all providing specific tools for their actual field of usage, are currently available. In order to use any of the add-on modules, the Pure Analyzer Essential is required.

 

Available add-on modules are:

  • Pure Analyzer Metering
  • Pure Analyzer Live
  • Pure Analyzer Multichannel

 

  ITU-R BS.1770 / EBU R128 Compliant

 

Basic Requirement (Mandatory!)

System requirements

 

The Python scripting engine is used by the Pure Analyzer System and is required prior to installing the Pure Analyzer System installer. Mac OS X 10.6 may require manual installation of Python 2.7.3 or later, with OS X 10.7 and 10.8 this is installed with the system per default. You can download the installer below:

 

http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.7.3/python-2.7.3-macosx10.6.dmg

 

Pure Analyzer is built around Flux::'s new 2D/3D efficient graphic engine, which employs full GPU-acceleration utilizing an OpenGL-compliant graphics card.

 

In order to experience the outstanding graphical response in Pure Analyzer and to fully take advantage of the software's analysis capabilities, using a modern nVidia or ATI Radeon graphics card is recommended.
Older, and other less efficient graphics cards do not have the required performance and specifications, and will offload too much work to the CPU.

 

The processor is an important factor as well, and we recommend using at least and Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i5 or newer architecture processor. AMD processors are also supported, but might exhibit lower performance, as they do not offer the same capabilities and optimizations as Intel CPUs.

 

System recommendations

 

  GPU: AMD/ATI Radeon or nVidia video-card. Intel integrated graphics are tested and works, but with limited capabilites, thus should be avoided.

Minimum requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 1.6 GHz
  • GPU: OpenGL 2.0 or superior compatible, with pixel-shader support
Recommended configuration
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 @ 1.7 - 2.2 GHz or better
  • GPU: AMD/ATI Radeon or nVidia. Intel integrated graphic-cards are tested and works, but with limited capabilites.
Common requirements
  • A free USB port to connect the Flux:: or iLok dongle.

 

Notes
Please make sure that the latest version of vendor-provided optimized drivers are installed for your graphics card. Generic drivers may contain bugs and are in general less up-to-date with optimizations presented in drivers specific to your particular graphics card model.
