Here's the AES/EBU Interface You've Been Looking for!The Lynx Studio Technology AES16 multi-channel interface is the ideal way to combine digital mixers, multi-channel A/D and D/A converters, and hard disk recorders with computer-based workstations.
Lynx Studio Technology AES16 192kHz Multi-channel AES/EBU Interface at a Glance:
- Low-latency performance and reduced CPU load
- Exclusive SynchroLock technology assures jitter-free performance
- Built-in digital mixer
- Supports up to 16 channels of 192kHz audio I/O
- Mastering-grade sample rate conversion
Supports up to 16 channels of 192kHz audio I/O
The AES16 offers unprecedented AES/EBU channel capacity and routing flexibility in one PCI card format. With support for up to 16 channels of input and out at sample rates up to 192kHz, the AES16 turns your computer into a intense digital router or patchbay with lots of flexibility with minimal cabling. Most importantly, the AES16 supports the emerging single-wire 192kHz standard and is compatible with existing dual-wire AES/EBU devices. Up to four AES16s can be installed in one computer.
Exclusive SynchroLock technology assures jitter-free performance
Offering a solution for jitter problems in AES signals, the AES16 incorporates a new Lynx technology called SynchroLock that has extreme jitter tolerance at all inputs. By coupling statistical analysis with low-noise clock generation techniques, SynchroLock is able to pull out a completely clean clock from AES signals affected by long cable lengths and other noise sources. The clock output of SynchroLock can also be used as a completely accurate word clock source for other studio devices.
Low-latency performance and reduced CPU load
Glitch-free recording and playback is assured due to the AES16's large built-in buffers and extremely efficient zero-wait state DMA engine. These features provide tolerance to rig latencies and significantly reduce load on the host CPU. Data transfer hardware and software are highly optimized to provide extremely low latencies for ASIO and other real-time jobs.
Mastering-grade sample rate conversion
The AES16-SRC model offers eight channels of mastering quality sample rate conversion to accommodate studios running multiple samples rates or signals not locked to "house sync".
Built-in digital mixer
The built-in digital mixer offers flexible patch-bay style routing and digital mixing. It rocks zero-latency 32-channel/32-bit digital mixing with 16 sub outputs. Multiple dither algorithms per channel are available.
