Premium-quality AES/EBU Audio InterfaceThe Lynx Studio Technology AES16e multi-channel interface is the ideal way to integrate digital consoles, multi-channel A/D and D/A converters, and hard disk recorders with PCI Express-equipped computer-based workstations. Using exclusive SynchroLock technology, jitter is eliminated for the purest conversions possible, and the AES16 supports sample-rates up to 192kHz. Large, on-board buffers ensure glitch-free recording and playback, aided by an extremely efficient zero-wait state DMA engine. These features provide tolerance to system latencies and significantly reduce load on the host CPU. The AES16e is a great centerpiece of a digital studio.
Lynx Studio Technology AES16e 192kHz Multi-channel AES/EBU PCI Express Interface at a Glance:
Supports up to 16 channels of 192kHz audio I/O
The AES16e offers unprecedented AES/EBU channel capacity and routing flexibility in a single PCIe card format. With support for up to 16 channels of input and output at sample rates up to 192kHz, the AES16e turns your computer into a powerful digital router or patch bay with extensive flexibility with minimal cabling. Most importantly, the AES16e supports the single-wire 192kHz standard and is compatible with existing dual-wire AES/EBU devices. Up to four AES16es can be installed in a single computer. (Windows)
Exclusive SynchroLock technology assures jitter-free performance
Offering a solution for jitter problems in AES signals, the AES16e incorporates a new Lynx technology called SynchroLock that provides extreme jitter tolerance at all inputs. By coupling statistical analysis with low-noise clock generation techniques, SynchroLock is able to extract a very clean clock from AES signals affected by long cable lengths and other noise sources. The clock output of SynchroLock can also be used as a very accurate word clock source for other studio devices.
Low-latency performance and reduced CPU load
Glitch-free recording and playback is assured due to the AES16e's large onboard buffers and extremely efficient zero-wait state DMA engine. These features provide tolerance to system latencies and significantly reduce load on the host CPU. Data transfer hardware and software are highly optimized to provide extremely low latencies for ASIO and other real-time applications.
Mastering-grade sample rate conversion
The AES16e-SRC model offers 16 channels of mastering quality sample rate conversion to accommodate studios running multiple samples rates or signals not locked to "house sync".
Onboard digital mixer
The onboard digital mixer offers flexible patch-bay style routing and digital mixing. It provides zero-latency 32-channel/32-bit digital mixing with 16 sub outputs. Multiple dither algorithms per channel are available.

by Tom Altman from Phila. PAIn combination with the Lynx Aurora 16 this is an amazing card. The only limitation is the number of tracks recording at once, but for us, recording more than 16 at a time almost never happens. The so... read more [+]und is amazing. As good as I've heard. The Lynx clock makes this sound as good as ProTools HD. Highly recommended. close [-]

by abdul from ky/tnWorks great with aurora converters. you can record with absolutely no latency with the lynx software. I also had this hook up to the cpu with a apogee rosetta 200 with aes cables from lynx and it work... read more [+]ed like a dream. No more firewire issues because it hooks directly in cpu via pci-e slot.. I will never go back to firewire interfaces. I use this card with studio one pro and it works like a dream. Remember absolutely no latency when recording using lynx mixer software. I can use buffer settings at 64 or larger and it doesn't matter because you can track with no latency. close [-]
