Bittree Launches ProStudio Patchbay Series for Pro Audio

Bittree has introduced its new ProStudio series of audio patchbays, aimed at making the company’s products affordable to everyone from hobbyist musicians to top-tier studio engineers.

Bittree said the first offering in the new line, the front-programmable ProStudio 4825F, is the first patchbay designed specifically for pairing with transportable 500 Series modular chassis such as the API Lunchbox, Rupert Neve Designs R6 and Radial Six-Pack.

Designed to fit perfectly on portable 500 Series racks or under computer monitors in fixed or temporary installations, the desktop PS4825F ($625.00) enables users to define and alter their audio signal flow between equipment or around the studio.

The PS4825F offers 48 TT (bantam) connectors in a 2x24 configuration, with DB25 rear connectors for interfacing with Avid ProTools and Tascam gear.

Eschewing the plastic construction typical of many low-cost patchbays, the PS4825F features a metal front panel rather than breakage-prone phenolic material. The same robust and carefully-engineered design also eliminates the noise associated with lower-end alternatives.

Solid- gold switching contacts are welded and electrically bonded to the spring leaves, providing superior durability and higher electrical current ratings than competing solutions’ pressed-on foil approach.

Professional-grade shunts, protected from dust and other elements including EMI and RFI by the PS4825F’s removable front stainless steel designation strips, enable easy reconfiguration of circuit normalling, grounding and bussing. Meanwhile, the designation strips themselves provide ample space for three lines of print, enabling easy labelling and quick identification.
