New Mod, Ploytec Revival, Brings USB 2.0 Compatibility To Legacy Devices

Audio specialist Ploytec has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its latest USB audio format converter, Ploytec Revival.

Ploytec Revival promises to being modern USB 2.0 compatibility to legacy audio devices. Here’s what they have to say about it:

“How many practical devices – mixing consoles, DJ decks, controllers, and many others that sound great and provide exciting performances and creative workflows, unfortunately, fall out of their computer-based application when suddenly the USB protocol is no longer supported by new computers.

Ploytec Revival provides a good connection again.”

The first version of Ploytec Revival will support the DJ mixing consoles XONE:2D, XONE:4D, and XONE:DB4. Other products with USB protocols that no longer work on current computers will follow in the future; Ploytec Revival can be updated via USB.

Pricing and Availability:

Production of Ploytec Revival is being funded via a Kickstarter Campaign, and it’s available to project backers for about $206 USD.

Note: Crowdfunding projects can involve risk. See the project site for details.

  1. Terrible video, I have no idea what the device actually does after watching it. Why waste time playing music in your demo.

    1. It’s an USB 2.0 Audio bridge, between devices that are not supported anymore (unsigned proprietary drivers) and class compliant USB Audio (or signed Ploytec drivers) on newer OSes.
      Which means they have to reverse engineer the old drivers, per product, to build a compatible firmware for the bridge card.
