BURL Audio B16 Mothership BMB1 - DigiLink

2U, 2-slot version of the B80 Mothership AD/DA - empty chassis with internal power supply and BMB1 Mini-DigiLink motherboard for direct hookup to Pro Tools - cards sold separately
MFR# B16-BMB1

Product Description

The Burl Audio B16 Mothership is a compact, portable, 2-slot version of the revolutionary B80 Mothership. This versatile digital audio interface provides up to 16 channels of Class A circuitry for adding analog color and character to sterile digital productions. With support for Digilink, MADI, Dante or SoundGrid connectivity, the B16 offers industry-leading IO. The B16 Mothership BMB1 - DigiLink includes a BMB1 Digilink Motherboard.

Customized Configurations

The B16 offers unparalleled flexibility in any recording facility—from music studios to broadcast stations to post-production houses. By utilizing swappable daughter cards, the B16 can be configured to meet your needs.

Each daughter card is equipped with transformers in the input stage and op-amps in the output stage, combining the flexibility and pristine sound of digital audio with the character and attitude of an all Class A discrete signal path.

Create a 16-input tracking system for a world-class mobile recording rig. Set up a 16-output portable mix rig and give your tracks the analog treatment no matter where you go. Configure B16 as an 8-in/8-out hybrid system for the best of both worlds. Create a non-traditional setup using the BAES4 card with 4 channels of AES in and out per card. Distribute up to eight word clock outputs per BCLK card for advanced post production projects.

Each B16 Mothership is equipped with a swappable Motherboard for advanced digital connectivity. Choose from four versatile Motherboards for a wide array of digital connection options.

BMB1 DIGILINK MOTHERBOARD

The BMB1 comes standard with two DigiLink connectors for direct hookup to Avid Pro Tools. BURL AUDIO does away with the expansion port, making both primary ports. That means you can play 64 ADC or DAC channels straight out of Pro Tools with one unit! With 6 BAD8s and 4 BDA8s a 48x32 IO can be achieved. With 2 BAD8s and 8 BDA8s a 16x64 IO can be achieved. With the configurability of the MOTHERHSHIP the IO possibilities are limitless.

Features:

  • 2U main chassis

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
