16-Channel AD/DA Converter
16 analog inputs and outputs, two ADAT interfaces,
two Z-Link interfaces for system interfacing
16 analog inputs and 16 analog outputs. Provided as fully-symmetrical balanced phone jacks. Switchable between -10 dBv and +4 dBu.
Two independent ADAT interfaces
Dual 8-channel I/Os, 24-bit, fully compatible with all devices which feature this digital interface.
S-Mux permits ADAT transfers of 96 kHz audio .Although the ADAT standard does not include sample rates above 48 kHz, the A16 Ultra can transfer audio at 96 kHz using S-Mux mode, in which pairs of ADAT channels are coupled, giving you a total of eight S-Mux channels.
Two independent Z-Link interfaces. This CreamWare-proprietary interface format, based upon FireWire technology, offers greater transfer bandwidth than ADAT. With Z-Link, simultaneous transfer of all 16 channels at 24 bits / 96 kHz is possible. Ideal for use with all CreamWare systems that are equipped with Z-Link.
BNC Wordclock I/O for synchronization of your complete digital setup. Functions both as master and as slave.
VU meters for precise level setting The 16 5-segment level indicators permit convenient, precise setting of signal levels and allow you to keep everything under visual control at all times.
Memory function .The A16 Ultra remembers all of its settings when you power it down, so that you can pick up where you left off in your next session.
Ultra-compact construction .The A16 Ultra packs concentrated technology into a single-height 19" rack.
Various expansion options
are planned to boost the performance of the converter
further. For example: add-in boards which permit the use of
S-Mux on all 16 ADAT channels or which render the A16 Ultra
a TDIF-1 compatible converter. A USB2 expansion, also in the
works, will permit the A16 Ultra to be used as a standalone
I/O interface with any computer system equipped with USB2,
and will also allow it to be remote-controlled via software,
making operation as an analog/digital patchbay.
