BURL Audio BAD4M-1111 4-Channel ADC Daughter Card for B80 Mothership

Mastering-grade 4-channel ADC card for B80 with NextGen Analog Circuit, switchable BX1 input transformer, BOPA11 proprietary op-amp, and front panel attenuation
MFR# B80-BAD4M-1111

Product Description

The BURL Audio BAD4M-1111 is a mastering grade, 4-channel ADC daughter card for the B80 and B16 MOTHERSHIP with stepped attenuators and switchable input transformers. Specifically designed for mixing and mastering, the BAD4M uses the latest BURL NextGen analog technology for superior fidelity and clarity.

The BAD4M is the result of over 25 years of R&D experience in pro audio digital and analog design. Following on the success of the B2 BOMBER ADC and the BAD8 for the MOTHERSHIP, the BAD4M utilizes BURL Audio’s NextGen Analog technology with the same BX1 transformer coupled circuit path as the BAD8 (no op-amps) and a transformerless analog front end using BOPA11 op-amp.

The BOPA11 is ideal for mastering, with maximum clarity, detail, and minimal distortion.

For years, engineers have taken their fully digital projects and run them through a 2-track analog tape machine to make them sound “less digital”. The BDA4M with the BX5 output transformer routed to a BAD4M with the BX1 input transformer does something very similar, but better. Using a BDA4M to BAD4M signal path will give you better performance than tape in that there is higher dynamic range, more headroom, and better frequency response with no tape hiss.

The BAD4M transformerless analog front end is perfect for situations where you want a pure capture of a mix or mastering chain where the signal is already warm and peak limited. The BOPA14 ensures a truly clear, faithful capture of the source material.

On the digital side, the BAD4M employs a couple of new features; a switchable ADC filter and AVID delay matching. Switching the ADC filter allows you to change the tone from the classic BURL sound to a more aggressive tone with a more forward mid-range. The AVID delay matching allows you to perfectly match the input delay of an AVID IO which is crucial for hardware inserts.

If you already own a B80 MOTHERSHIP or if you are buying a new B16 or B80 MOTHERSHIP, the BAD4M is awesome by itself or as a compliment to the mix and master DAC daughter card, the BDA4M. A B16 with a BAD4M and BDA4M is the ultimate 4 input, 4 output mastering solution. Adding even just one BAD4M to your MOTHERSHIP will be a big step up. The BAD4M is truly BURLY.

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!

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.

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.
