The Alpha-Link MADI AX is a 2U 24-bit, standalone, digital audio converter with 64 channels of MADI optical connection at 48kHz (32 channels when used at 96kHz),with 24 channels of analogue-to-digital conversion and 24 channels of ADAT I/O.
The MADI connections on the Alpha-Link AX not only allows you to connect to other SSL equipment, but they can also integrate with any other MADI based systems. Since it is a standalone device, the Alpha-Link AX is designed to be compatible with almost any DAW.
The front panel controls are clear and well laid out and give easy conversion between formats. Unlike similar units, the Alpha-Link MADI also allows you to access all digital and analogue I/Os simultaneously - a very useful feature that means you don't have to disable one, to check the other, thus achieving maximum flexibility.
The MADI AX also has Word Clock I/O, letting you sync to video, as well as allowing the AX to be the master clock for a number of other devices. Equipped with MIDI I/O, the SSL Alpha-Link MADI AX also has a TDM multipin port on the back and a front-panel headphone jack socket.
