The Solid State Logic Xlogic Alpha-Link Audio I/O Product Range is a new collection of flexible and fully featured multi-channel Audio Converters for Studio, Live and Broadcast Applications.
There are three Alpha Link models in the initial product release; all featuring high quality 24-channel SSL enhanced AD/DA converter circuitry and offering a choice of digital audio format options. The Alpha Link MADI SX is a MADI & AES/EBU based converter, whilst the Alpha Link AX & Alpha Link MADI AX are ADAT Lightpipe based converters.
The XLogic Alpha-Link series of Audio Converters are stylishly designed, 2U-high rack-mountable units with deceptively simple front panel controls. Each offers a comprehensive input/output routing matrix used to set up global connections between the various I/O connections that makes all combinations possible. There is also a handy front panel headphone connection and a metering section for the analogue inputs and outputs with an AD/DA selection button, mode indicator LEDs and 24 tri-colour level LEDs.
All Alpha-Link units can be used as standalone format converters, but used in combination with a Soundscape Mixpander PCI card they provide a powerful, highly flexible IO solution for native PC-based audio workstations. When the unit is connected to a Mixpander the inputs and outputs can be routed individually from the PC using the Soundscape Mixer software.
The XLogic Alpha Link range will be shipping worldwide in November.
