Alpha-Link MADI Live-R

I/O with quality proven in the world's leading studios

The Alpha-Link Live-R features 64 channel MADI to 24 channel digital and 24 channel SSL A-D/D-A converters. Each unit features lossless Fibre Optic MADI In/Out connections which can be used to connect to SSL's own MadiXtreme, MX4 or Delta-Link computer interfaces, to MADI equipped consoles and routers or to cascade multiple Alpha-Link units to create powerful systems that offer exceptional value. There are three different models available each of which features 24 channels of high quality SSL A-D/D-A conversion which can operate at up to 96kHz. The Alpha-Link MADI AX converts between analogue, optical digital MADI and 24 digital ADAT Lightpipe digital Inputs and Outputs simultaneously. The Alpha-Link MADI SX and Live-R convert between analogue, optical digital MADI and 24 channels (12 stereo pairs) of AES/EBU digital Inputs & Outputs simultaneously. The Alpha-Link Live-R originates in SSL's broadcast range so offers additional features including redundant PSU's, redundant MADI connections and is switchable between +18dBu or +22dBu nominal maximum analogue I/O level for 0dB FS. All units feature a front panel hardware switch based control interface with LED status indication, and dedicated tri-colour LED's provide signal activity indication.

      Latency Values
      The latency values (input/output delays) for XLogic Alpha-Link MADI AX, SX and Live-R interfaces are as follows:

      AES/EBU interface input: 2 samples

      AES/EBU interface output: 2 samples

      MADI interface input: 3 samples

      MADI interface output: 2 samples

      Analogue interface input (ADC): 43 samples

      Analogue interface output (DAC): 28 samples

      The values are the same at all sample rates.

      NB: This means that when two Alpha-Links are connected via ADAT, MADI or AES/EBU, so that the second one provides additional analogue inputs/outputs to the first one, the overall delay for a signal passing from one unit to the other is 5 samples via ADAT or MADI, and 4 samples via AES/EBU (output latency of one unit, plus input latency of the other). For perfect alignment of all the analogue inputs/outputs across both units, a compensating delay will need to be added to the signal path from each analogue input and to each analogue output of the first unit.

      This can be done in the SSL Soundscape Mixer software by inserting Sample Delay Line mixer elements as needed.

      The latency values for the XLogic Delta-Link are as follows:

      MADI to HD: 5 samples

      HD to MADI: 5 samples
