The nw2s nw2s::io (Balanced Version) is the perfect means of integrating one’s modular synthesizer system within a larger studio like any other piece of rack gear. This particular version is electronically balanced and provides a total of 16 channels of i/o in a mere 10HP.
The module features 6dB of gain reduction for matching studio levels, which keeps modular synth systems from clipping line-level inputs and concurrently adds some extra gain when routing line-level signals into a modular synthesizer system.
The balanced version of the nw2s::io features pristine, laser-trimmed line drivers and receivers in order to provide optimal common-mode rejection. Since it is DC coupled, it works well with both audio and CV signals.
nw2s::io Balanced Version
Balanced Line Transceiver Eurorack Module
Uses precision THAT Corp Balanced Drivers and Recievers
Designed with SMT components and stacked PCBs resulting in an extremely high-density module
Unbalanced Modular Inputs have a net gain of -12dB on the Balanced DB-25 connectors
The DB-25 Balanced Line Inputs have a net gain of +0dB at the Unbalanced Modular Outputs
In order to provide up to 27.5dBu output level and up to 21.5dBu input levels, the standard eurorack +/-12V power rails were insufficient - The nw2s::io contains it’s own on-board +/-18V power supply that runs off the eurorack rails
