If you have an analog based system, the AD-24 Analog Input Rack Unit takes your analog signals and converts them to digital, for use in the Livemix system. It will most likely be installed near the analog source. If this is your mixer’s Direct Outs or Inserts, then the AD-24 will be near the mixer. If you use a snake with mic preamps, it might be near the snake.
The AD-24 receives your input signal via TRS or DB-25. The inputs pass through, so you can send your audio to the AD-24 via DB-25, and back out through the TRS if required.
The front panel interface indicates input signal levels by LED and allows selection of -10 dBV or +4 dBu line level, which are in stereo pairs.
|S/N Ratio||111 dB|
|Frequency Response||20 Hz – 22KHz ± .5dB|
|Maximum Input Level||+24 dBu (minor distortion above 23.5 dBu, hard clip at +24 dBu)|
|Input Impedance||20KΩ Balanced, 10KΩ Unbalanced|
|Max cable length to MIX-16/MIX32||100m CAT5e cable (shielded required)|
We recommend to make the Master clock the console or Dante card in the console. NOTE: There are two ways this can be done. 1) Set the console’s internal clock as Master, then using Dante Controller, set the console’s Dante card as Master clock (for the Dante Network) and also check box “Sync to External”. This will allow the card to stay synched to the console’s master clock. 2) Set the console’s internal clock to be slave of the console’s Dante card. Using Dante controller, set the console’s Dante card as Master clock.
