Allen & Heath has introduced an alternative option to its ICE-16 multitrack recorder in the form of the ICE-16D.

Allen & Heath ICE-16DWhile both units are 16-input/16-output audio interfaces for the capture of high-quality multitrack recordings direct to a USB drive or interface to a computer, the ICE-16D adds balanced I/O on AES59 standard D-Sub connectors for use in a studio environment.

The compact 1U-high ICE-16 and ICE-16D are capable of studio quality interfacing, converting and bi-directional streaming of 16 channels over high-speed USB or FireWire at 24 bit, 96kHz resolution. Alternatively, 16 channels can be simultaneously recorded to a USB hard drive or memory stick at up to 24bit 48kHz resolution as a .wav file. The unit is expandable, allowing units to be linked and synchronised for recording of many channels.

Signal and peak metering is provided for each channel, and can be switched to show input or output. Headphone monitoring is also included and switches on each channel enable checking of individual or multiple channels. ASIO drivers and Core Audio compliance ensure compatibility with all main DAWs, including Logic, Sonar, Cubase and Pro Tools.

‘We listened to customers who prefer balanced connections to interface with their studio equipment or perhaps want to run longer cable runs,’ says R&D designer, Mike Griffin. ‘D-Sub connectors provide a convenient way to connect multiple channels, with easily available cables from music stores or cable suppliers.’

The Ice-16D carries a SRP of £825 + VAT.
