B-16 is equipped with 10 buffered audio loops, 6 switches ground separated.
B-16 is controlled by MIDI CC (Control Change) commands over 16 MIDI channels.
B-16 is compatible with any type of MIDI controller capable of sending CC commands, but to ensure proper operation and maximum effectiveness we recommend using MARK L controllers.
Buffered signal ensures same impedance level on every loop, ensuring that there is no mismatch in the sound of your pedals.The difference is as if every effect was a self-standing-unit, without any tone-dependence of one by another.
perfectly transparent sound
all loop RETURN buffered ( BURR BROWN OPA Line Driver )
signal to noise ration comparable to CD quality recordings (102dB)
no dynamic loss
silent, click-free switching, even in high gain level
six relay contact closures (S1-S6) for devices utilizing switch to ground functions
high grade low noise line driver ( BURR BROWN OPA Line Driver )
alternating or direct current operation
The effects loop can be hooked up with:
10 mono effects (10 effects plugged in before the amplifier)
10 mono effects (10 effects plugged in the amplifier’s FX LOOP )
By dividing the loop into two sections we can plug in:
10 mono effects (6 before the amplifier and 4 in the amplifier’s FX LOOP)
The front panel consists of 17 LED diodes informing which loop (L1-L10) or which switch (S1-S6) is on and a MIDI light which informs if the device is receiving MIDI signals.
To connect to the FC-25 use the lockable XLR6. MIDI-IN is equipped with additional power supply thanks to which the FC-25 may be powered by the LS-16 ( pin 1-2 AC power for FC-25, pin 4-5 MIDI DATA, pin 3-6 12AC power for FC25 DC converter). To connect audio through a high impedance line buffer, connect to the lockable JACK 6,3MM GUITAR IN
The rear panel consists of 6,3 mm ‘jack’ inputs used for connecting effects, audio signals and control switches for the amplifier and other devices
