Featuring 16-in/16-out audio interfaces, ICE-16D allows audio engineers to easily capture high quality multi-track recordings direct to a USB drive or interface to a computer. Additionally, it has balanced I/O and is fitted into a compact 1RU design. ICE-16D is capable of studio quality interfacing, converting and bi-directional streaming of 16 channels over high-speed USB or FireWire at 24-bit, 96kHz resolution. Alternatively, 16 channels can be simultaneously recorded straight to a USB hard drive or memory stick at up to 24-bit 48kHz resolution as a WAV file. The unit is expandable, so you can link units together and synchronize recording of many channels. Signal and peak metering is provided for each channel and can be switched to show input or output. Headphone monitoring is also included and switches on each channel enable checking of individual or multiple channels. ASIO drivers and Core Audio compliance ensure full compatibility with all the main DAWs, including Logic, Sonar, Cubase and Pro Tools.
