New York, NY (October 19, 2017)—Dangerous Music unveiled its new Convert-AD+ A to D converter at the AES Convention in New York City. Shipping in November, the Convert-AD+ is intended to be “a complete round-trip system for tracking, mixing and mastering,” according to founder Bob Muller.

The unit sports dual stereo analog inputs with front-panel toggle selection; 44.1 to 192 K sample rate selection with Lock indicator; and selectable calibration for -14, -16, and -18 dBFS. A “Clip Guard” feature removes clipping indication from digital prints for CD Masters, Mastered for iTunes, Spotify and other outlets.
