BURL Audio B16 Mothership with B22-ALPS ORCA and B4 Mic Pre Daughter Cards
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. This complete B16 Mothership package includes the BMB1 Digilink Motherboard for Pro Tools connectivity along with the B22-ALPS Orca 4-channel DAC control room monitor and B4 4-channel mic/line input ADC daughter cards.
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.
- 2 Digilink ports for 64 channel operation
- 2 BNC Word Clock outputs
- 1 BNC Word Clock input
BURL AUDIO B22-ALPS ORCA DAUGHTER CARD
Building on the reputation of the B26 ORCA for sonic superiority, BURL Audio introduces the ultimate in control room monitoring for the B16 Mothership, the Burl B22 ORCA Control Room Monitor daughter card. The B22 ORCA utilizes the same analog, all-discrete circuit path philosophy as other BURL Audio products with an emphasis on the ultimate in sonic transparency and 3D stereo imaging. The ALPS version includes an ALPS audiophile potentiometer.
Featuring the BURL NextGen BOPA14 op-amps, the B22 delivers tight bass and high definition throughout the audio spectrum. Instruments and mixes have a more real, 3D sound, with wider stereo image and even more depth while preserving the original shape and harmonic balance of the source.
The B22 ORCA employs 4 DAC channels. The first two are mix/mastering grade DAC channels with switchable BX5 output transformers. These channels can be used to feed a separate headphone amp or a mix/mastering chain. You can also use these channels to send out tracks for analog processing. The second two DAC channels feed the main monitor section which features two stereo speaker outputs and one stereo headphone output.
The B22 ORCA Control Room Monitor daughter card coupled with the B16 Mothership and the B4 MIC/LINE input card provides an amazing audiophile desktop recording rig.
