AI16 Analog Input Card


Get a spare or replacement analog input card for your SC48 console, Mix Rack System, or Stage 48 remote I/O box. The AI16 (Analog Input 16) Card is an option that provides 16 channels of software-controlled, fully recallable analog mic/line inputs (through XLR connectors). Both SC48 and Mix Rack come standard with the full complement of three AI16 Cards for a total of 48 analog mic/line input channels; this option provides you with a spare or replacement module.


  • 16 channels of analog mic/line-level inputs through XLR3-female connectors
  • 48V phantom power (selectable per channel using VENUE software)
  • 20 dB pad (selectable per channel in VENUE software)
  • Gain adjustable in 0.1 dB steps
  • Polarity invert (selectable per channel using VENUE software)
