Multichannel Sound Card with SRC

LoLa881 and LoLa881-SRC

LoLa881 and LoLa881-SRC are the queens of radio broadcast applications. We have designed these PCI Express linear (PCM) multichannel stereo sound cards to excel with professional systems either Windows or Linux based that require up to four stereo AES/EBU input and output channels. Because we know that reliability is paramount for radio broadcast applications such as multichannel audio ingest, play-out, and production, LoLa cards come with ultra robust signature drivers that will deliver. LoLa881 and LoLa881-SRC are hands down the reference for professional audio workstations and their operators.


Keep calm and carry on. Our hardware and software are designed for 365/24/7 mission-critical applications.

Made for multi-channel digital recording.

Up to 5 synchronized cards in a workstation

Versatile and hands-on

Delivered with standard and robust audio drivers for Windows and Linux, don’t mind the adaptability: LoLa can be used with a large panel of audio applications.

    Sound cards

    Which Linux Distribution are supported for sound cards ?

    LoLa soundcards and multichannels VX/PCX series are supported on every Linux distribution, as the ALSA driver is part of the kernel.

    The VX and PCX stereo cards have precompiled versions for Debian, Ubuntu, CentOs, Fedora, and OpenSuse-based distributions. For the LX series, the following distributions are supported: Ubuntu LTS / Debian LTS / CentOS 7.

    For other Linux distributions, we propose a service for providing an adequate compiled and installable driver package. UAX and Cancun series will work on every Linux distribution.

    Make sure that you downloaded the lasted driver on our website. Indeed, from time to time we have to make component updates that require a new driver.
