Connect™ Custom

The ASI2416 is a CobraNet® audio interface in a 1RU rack mount format providing 16 channels of CobraNet receive and transmit.

The unit can be populated with up to four function specific modules, allowing up to 16 channels of analog or AES/EBU I/O. Each module has an interchangeable connector that may be configured with either a pluggable terminal block, StudioHub+® or a 50pin Centronics connector to XLR breakout cables

The ASI2416 features a powerful Texas Instruments 32bit floating point DSP that allows sophisticated switching/mixing.  A graphics display on the unit’s front panel shows peak meters and CobraNet status.

AudioScience provides application software that may be used to set up the ASI2416. ASIControl is used to set up all internal features of the unit, as well as allow CobraNet routing connections to be set up between the ASI2416 and other CobraNet devices on the network. CobraNet Discovery can also be used for routing connections.


  • 16 CobraNet® inputs/outputs on 100Mbit Ethernet with redundant RJ-45 connectors.

  • 1RU rack-mount unit
  • Modular architecture allows up to 4 I/O modules to be inserted into the back of the unit.
