DSP and SHARC processors
Looking for enlightenment on these. I know what they do.
A Digital Signal Processor, or DSP, is a specialized microprocessor that has an architecture which is optimized for the fast operational needs of digital signal processing. A Digital Signal Processor (DSP) can process data in real time, making it ideal for applications that can’t tolerate delays. Digital signal processors take a digital signal and process it to improve the signal into clearer sound, faster data or sharper images. Digital Signal Processors use video, voice, audio, temperature or position signals that have been digitized and mathematically manipulate them. A digital signal processor is designed to perform these mathematical functions rapidly. The signals are processed so the information contained in them can be displayed or converted to another type of signal.
MY QUESTION IS: Will something like
Universal Audio Apollo Twin MKII SOLO Desktop Interface with Realtime UAD Processing for Mac and Windows work with only UAD or other plugins like Slate, WAVE, Reaper and other plugins? What about others with the SHARC processors? Apollo, etc? GO! I'm hungry!
