Two 192kHz analog channels and two 96kHz digital channels with onboard digital mixer.

The Lynx L22 PCI CArd is an excellent choice for mastering and broadcast facilities where the quality and stability of your audio are crucial. The professional Lynx L22 audio interface card is also intended for use in the most demanding audio recording, post-production, and sound measurement applications. IThe L22 PCI Card offers 2 192kHz analog channels and 2 96kHz digital channels with the same audio engine as the Lynx LynxTWO. Using proprietary circuit topologies and custom components in the analog stages, along with the latest converter technology, the L22 PCI card achieves a 117dB dynamic range. Most importantly, Lynx incorporates advanced noise-rejection design techniques into the L22 card to maintain this performance uniformly from computer to computer.

The digital mixer onboard the L22 is extremely flexible adapting it to any studio or workstation configuration. Each of the mixer's 16 outputs is capable of mixing signals from 16 physical inputs or 16 playback tracks with 32-bit precision.

As with other Lynx products, the L22 PCI Card provides plenty of compatibility with a wide range of platforms and operating systems. Lynx device drivers are developed in-house to ensure quality and robust operation.
