Roland S-2416 overview

  • 1Description

The S-2416 24x16 Digital Snake Stage Unit from Roland solves two age-old problems of live sound and fixed installations at once. It allows you to transfer a total of 32 input and 24 output channels of high-quality audio without signal degradation over an extremely long distance, and the cable pull-through issue is a snap in fixed installations and a breeze to setup compared to using analog snakes.

The S-2416 features 24 input x 16 output analog channels and 8 input x 8 output digital channels in a 4U rack-mount chassis. All input sections are equipped with discrete mic preamps designed to be transparent with uncolored sound; they can be controlled using any V-Mixer console, R-1000, an S-4000R unit connected by RS-232C, or by using the S-4000 RCS remote-control software on a computer (Mac or Windows) connected via USB. Furthermore, each Neutrik XLR jack connector features three-colored lights that communicate the status of phantom power, clipping, and signal presence.

In addition, two REAC Neutrik Ethercon connectors, a main and a backup, are provided to create a redundant REAC network just in case a problem occurs with the main line. The operation switches to the backup connector with no break in the audio. Word clock in & out for 24-bit / 96, 48, or 44.1 kHz sample rates is also supported.

The Rear Panel provides AES/EBU connectivity (25-pin D-sub type) for 8 channels of input and output providing connection to speaker processors, amps, and other devices capable of AES/EBU input and/or output. This is assigned to channels 25 through 32 and output is selectable by a mode switch.


Expand I/O with a Cascade Connection
Switching the device to Cascade mode and connecting another Digital Snake makes it possible to expand inputs and outputs up to 40x40 channels
High Sampling Rate of 96 kHz & Word Clock I/0
A mode switch enables selection of 96, 48, or 44.1 kHz when the S-2416 is switched to Clock master mode. The unit is also equipped with word-clock input and output connectors (BNC) for supplying a master clock signal when using the AES/EBU connection
Mute All Outputs Button
The S-2416 is equipped with a Mute All Outputs Button to temporarily silence all outputs - a handy feature when changing cable connections
Adjustable Rack Mounting for Greater Freedom
Rack-mount angle brackets can be attached not only at the front panel, but also at the rear. This makes it possible to mount the S-2416 with either front or rear orientation as needed
