Solid State Logic Alpha Link MX 16-4 Description

Scalable high performance DAW I/O for the pro project studio

Alpha-Link MX is the first of a new generation of SSL A-D/D-A converters that deliver superb audio quality and outstanding value. Building on the reputation of the Alpha-Link SX and AX models the new MX range consists of two 1 U units that can be used individually or combined to create larger systems. Each unit features Fibre Optic MADI In/Out connections which can be used to connect to SSL's own MadiXtreme, MX4 or Delta-Link computer interfaces or to cascade multiple MX units. The Alpha-Link MX 16-4 has 16 analogue inputs and 4 analogue outputs, making it an ideal 16 channel capture device with 4 outputs for artist and studio monitoring. 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 can be created. MX units have a switchable reference level to enable matching with the rest of your studio system, with front panel selection of a range of settings between +24dB and +14dB.
