CEDAR Audio Phase Corrector for Cambridge – No Longer Available

Eliminating timing errors and the resulting audio degradations for Cambridge Host System
MFR# CAM9

Product Description

The Problem:
Timing errors can occur whenever multiple signal paths are inconsistent with each other.  The resulting distortion of the phase relationships between the signals and the consequent filtering effect cause many problems including loss of high frequencies, muddy bass, poor mono compatibility, and a general smearing of the image. Worse still, if the timing error is not constant, you can hear a flanging effect.

Audio engineers have traditionally employed a range of processors to hide these deficiencies: equalisers, stereo enhancers, dynamics processors and reverb units. However, none of these attack the heart of the problem - the small but significant timing errors between the channels.

The Solution:
The Phase Corrector corrects these problems not by masking them, but by eliminating them.  It does this by identifying any monophonic component(s) common to a reference channel and the channel(s) being corrected, and then measuring the timing differences between them.  If any such errors are detected, the system recreates the signals so that they are accurately aligned.  It will track any changes in the error, dynamically updating the amount of correction it applies at any given moment.  A manual mode allows you to shift a signal by as little as 0.01 samples - an offset of just 0.1 microseconds at 96kHz.

A sophisticated filter minimises the chance that the detector will be fooled by unusual signals that contain little or no monophonic components, so that CEDAR Cambridge should never generate false corrections and introduce phase/time errors of its own.

The Phase Corrector allows you to select which tracks are shifted automatically, which are shifted manually, and which (if any) are left unaffected.  You can select any channel to be the Master Channel, and the module will calculate the independent timing errors of all the others, thus allowing you to lock-up the imaging for multitrack, 5.1 and 7.1 material.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
