SSL Alpha Link MX 4-16 PRODUCT FEATURES:
The Alpha-Link MX range consists of two different 1 U units (16-4 & 4-16) that can be used individually or combined to create larger systems. Each unit features 64 channel digital audio I/O via Fibre Optic MADI In/Out connections which can be used to connect to any suitably equipped MADI device including SSL's own MadiXtreme, MX4 and Delta-Link computer audio interfaces, or to cascade multiple MX units.
MadiXtreme is a family of multichannel PCIe audio cards for Mac and PC offering 64 or 128 channel digital audio interfaces using Fibre Optic MADI. MadiXtreme delivers digital audio input and output for your DAW, console or router via convenient and lossless optical MADI and is the perfect partner product for SSL’s Alpha-Link audio converters. Featuring our revolutionary PCIe-Core Audio Pipeline technology, MadiXtreme is one of the first audio devices to take full advantage of the high speeds and incredible bandwidth offered by the PCIe bus on modern computers. The drivers are fully multi-client capable (allowing several applications to simultaneously access the device) and allow multiple cards per system.
With one optical MADI connector for 64 simultaneous I/Os, the MADI Xtreme 64 is the ideal interface for the SSL Alpha-Link MADI AX or SSL Alpha-Link MADI SX. MADI Xtreme 64 is also the perfect partner for MADI equipped consoles, live recording, installations and broadcast servers.
Alpha-Link MX 4-16
The 'Alpha-Link MX 4-16' has 4 analogue inputs and 16 analogue outputs, making it an ideal solution for 16 channel analogue summing with 4 channels of audio capture. Up to four MX units can be cascaded in any combination in a daisy chain. In this way systems with up to 80 analogue connections which are routable to a single 64 channel MADI In/Out connection can be created. MX units have a switchable reference level to enable matching with the rest of your studio system, with a range of settings between +24dB and +14dB. Alpha-Link MX units are configured via a set of simple, intuitive front panel controls with status indicator LED's providing clear status and level information.
Alpha-Link MX units are available bundled with an SSL MadiXtreme 64 Mac or PC audio interface to provide the perfect high quality low cost pro DAW I/O solution.
