Your Portal to the Digital Domain
The FCA1616 allows you to converse with your computer in a language it understands… digital. When you connect line-level devices, such as synthesizers, or the outputs of an audio mixer to an FCA1616, internal 24-bit A/D (Analog to Digital) converters swing into action, turning the audio signal into digital data. Now you can record and play back your masterpiece through a pair of active studio monitors – or listen in the privacy of your favorite headphones.
