16 channels of I/O with variable trim
Aurora rocks pro I/O interfaces for ease of installation in most studios and live sound jobs. The Aurora 16-VT's analog I/O is electronically balanced and supports both +4dBU and -10dBV nominal levels. And, this newest version of the Aurora - the Aurora 16-VT - lets you manually set the analog input and out levels within a range of +8.5dBu to +24dBu, via 32 miniature trim pots , which are mounted on the primary circuit board. The Aurora 16-VT's AES digital I/O is transformer coupled and is capable of driving 500 feet of cable at 192kHz. Both dual and single-wire AES channel modes are supported.
The Aurora 16-VT's ergonomically designed front panel provides really simple access to important controls and signal status. One-of-a-kind to this product class, Aurora also offers lots of remote control capability. All front panel features plus other low-level options can be controlled from the Lynx AES16 digital interface card on Windows and Macintosh platforms; a Pocket PC or laptop via infrared; MIDI; or an LSlot interface card. Multiple remote set-up configurations can be stored and recalled.
Built-in 32-channel Mixer
The built-in 32-channel digital mixer rocks lots of routing and mixing options. Acting as a bulletproof patch bay style digital router, Aurora 16-VT can easily route signals between analog and digital ins on a channel-by-channel basis. Mixing capability on each output also rocks flexible zero latency monitoring.
LSlot for Expansion
The Aurora 16-VT's LSlot expansion port works with cards that provide compatibility with current and emerging digital interface standards, including ADAT and others.
