B80 Mothership BMB4

The Burl Audio B80 Mothership BMB4 - SoundGrid features an Ethernet port for 64 IO channels of Waves SoundGrid connectivity. SoundGrid is an Audio-over-Ethernet networking and processing technology developed by Waves. SoundGrid provides extremely low-latency, high-channel-count audio processing using standard Intel CPUs and 1 Gbps Ethernet networks for studio, live sound, and other real-time professional audio applications. Real-time audio processing is performed on standard Intel-based plugin servers, running a Waves-customized real-time version of Linux. Waves SoundGrid audio over Ethernet technology is a robust, proven system for audio over IP networking. Amongst the competing standards for audio over IP, SoundGrid boasts impressive, low latency. With 6 BAD8s and 4 BDA8s a 48x32 IO can be achieved. With 2 BAD8s and 8 BDA8s a 16x64 IO can be achieved. With the configurability of the MOTHERHSHIP the IO possibilities are limitless.

Simply put, the B80 MOTHERSHIP has redefined digital recording. For anyone who has felt that digital recording has been lacking soul, warmth and musicality, the B80 MOTHERSHIP is the answer. Building on the technology of the two-channel B2 BOMBERS, the B80 MOTHERSHIP was forged from BURL AUDIO’S deep dedication to analog class-A circuitry. The result is not only heard, it is felt. The MOTHERSHIP stands out from every other interface on the market not because it is colored, but because it does not sterilize the source.

Pushing the boundaries once again, the B80 MOTHERSHIP AD/DA converter has up to 80 analog channel capability. Using a card based system, and a heavy duty 4U chassis, the B80 MOTHERSHIP employs 10 card slots with 2, 4 and 8 channel AD/DA cards, all with the B2 quality signal path.

Every ADC channel uses a proprietary BX1 transformer and every DAC channel has the latest BURL AUDIO discrete op-amp, BOPA2. For many who have already embraced the B2 BOMBER, this is a dream come true. Recording an entire band and playing back through 24 channels of BURL AD/DA at a time is a truly beautiful experience. With a completely configurable AD/DA, a converter for any situation can be realized. If you just mix, load up the B80 with 8 BDA8 cards for 64 channels of mind blowing fidelity. If you track live, 6 BAD4 cards will give you 24 B2 quality inputs, and 4 BDA8 cards gives you 32 channels of outputs. Rocking!
