The Berlin Modular Edition 16n is a fader bank sending CV, I2C, MIDI jack compatible with all standards, USB MIDI (compatible PC, Mac, iPad etc...) , making it the absolute ultimate controller for any of your hardware and software all in one adapted to the Eurorack Format!
This is an hardware modified version of the original 16n.
This is the currently being offered as Bourns slider edition, not alps!
Panel is Matte Black PCB material.
Module is 52hp in width
Modifications compared to the original are :
-Updated power section Isolated USB power supply. Proper voltage reference. Upgraded filtering. This greatly reduce the noise on the outputs. (Measured at less than 6mV)
-Selectable 5v or 10V outputs: Each can be configured to output either 10V or 5V using a dip switch on the back of the module (even when using 5V USB power supply)
-Outputs facing upwards: The outputs will be directly on the front panel reducing the footprint and making outputs much more accessible.
-Eurorack compatible: You would be able to mount the 16n as a 50hp module in your rack and power it from your own power supply. (+12V=42mA, -12V=0mA)
-The footprint of the jack is compatible for banana connectors! So you'll be able to use it with your Serge or Buchla system.
-I2C connector on the PCB to simplify connection to modules like the ER301
-Two versions of the board are available one with high quality ALPS faders and another one with Bourns mid range faders (1/3 of the price of the ALPS).
