Serenade DSD/DXD/ High-Resolution music Workstation is designed for high resolution music production. It is a complete package consisting of Serenade 384kHz USB 2.0 Audio Interface, a Digital Audio Workstation, a DSD/DXD Effect Plugin Bundle and a DSD&PCM Bi-directional Converter software.

Back in 1999, The "Next Generation" Audio Format was introduced by Sony and Philips as a successor to the standard audio CD technology (PCM). It was called Digital Stream Data - formally known as Super Audio Compact Disc. DXD (which stands for the Digital Extreme Definition and has a 24-bit/352.8kHz resolution) is an alternative encoding scheme developed to aid in editing DSD. Neither format became as popular as they were expected to for 3 main reasons:

DSD is a format which is very difficult to edit and process directly.

Most professional audio interfaces are at 24-bit/192kHz, and cannot support higher resolution (such as 24-bit/352.8kHz), nor do they have native playback support for the DSD format.

The workstation which can make DSD/DXD formats are far too expensive for most musicians.

Serenade Workstation managed to solve these issues by:

Providing a USB audio interface which supports up to 32-bit/384kHz (which can playback DXD) and native playback support for 4 kinds DSD resolutions: DSD64, DSD128, DSD256 and DSD512.

Providing a DAW and plug-ins that work at 32-bit/352.8kHz and 32-bit/384kHz resolution, allowing for nearly lossless conversion to DSD. This makes DSD an editable format, allowing for mixing and mastering.

Providing the entire solution at a very affordable price of $999, far less than any other DSD/DXD workstation - and even lower than a lot of common mixing/mastering solutions.

The Portable Solution, Hi-Res Music Production Everywhere - With Your Laptop
Serenade Workstation features a USB audio interface which is very small in size (12cm*12cm*3cm), and can be directly powered by USB or battery powered. This makes the whole workstation very portable. Your laptop is the entire workstation - no need to carry extra equipment or an over-sized computer.

What's more, the Plug-in Bundle is also designed with portability in mind. As we all know, laptop's CPUs normally have less computing power than desktop PCs, and when running higher resolutions such as 32-bit/352.8kHz, the cost of computing power can be nearly 10 times as as much as when working with16-bit/44.1kHz resolutions. The Serenade Workstation has specially designed plugins which not only work well under 32-bit/384kHz, they create far less of a load for your CPU. Our Testing Labs have shown that modern laptops with a quad core CPUs can mix 32 tracks in the DXD/DSD format with no problems.
