At the more expensive end of the interface market, the main thing you get for your money is, well, more of everything. More inputs, more routing flexibility and more outputs, but – most importantly of all – more clarity in your productions.
Prism Sound’s Titan – successor to the hugely popular Orpheus – must surely win the prize for packing the most features into a single rack space, but the feature list alone only tells a small part of the story. Prism’s interface have a reputation for ultra-clean converters, and that’s exactly what you get here. Only four of the inputs feature mic preamps (the assumption at this price point is that you’ll probably be working with standalone outboard mic pres), but with 18 inputs and 20 outputs, this is a hugely powerful tool.
Needless to say, the Titan is overkill for most of us, both in the sense that most dance music producers don’t need to record that many channels at once and in the sense that few of us will ever be able to justify the expense. Nevertheless, it must rank as one of the best choices as far as money-no-object interfaces go. We’d certainly recommend that you audition it against rivals like the Apogee Symphony I/O, but if you’re looking for the ultimate in clarity, the Titan has to be on your list of options.
