What is it? An alternative version of the ICE-16 multi-track recorder offering balanced I/O. Details Housed in a compact 1U rack design, the 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 as .wav files drives to a USB hard drive or memory stick at up to 24-bit/48kHz resolution. 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. And another thing... The ICE-16D is expandable, allowing units to be linked together and facilitating synchronised recordings of many channels.
