Signal Transport's Synth Driver Plus addresses a common problem found in MIDI/Synthesizer, Project, and Commercial studios; unbalanced audio sources cause buzz and hum. Synth Driver provides a compact, convenient, high density balancing interface for your synthesizer, MIDI voices, and any other unbalanced gear, so that even in the largest installations you can enjoy clean, quiet operation free of extraneous noise.

For best results, Synth Drivers are mounted in the rear of the synthesizer voice racks, close to the sound sources, and fed with short 1/4" jumper cables. Balanced output signals are then routed to the console via multi-pair cables. The high quality output balancing of the Synth Driver provides the ideal source for most mixers with balanced inputs. Each Synth Driver channel features a balanced input to eliminate ground loops between your synths and the Synth Driver itself. Front panel mounted ground lift(GL) switches allow you to configure the input/output shield lifting, per channel, for compatibility with studio wiring and to take advantage of the input balancing. Internal gain jumpers allow you to select the right gain structure for the gear being connected.

Synth DriverAll models include 1/4" TRS input connectors as well as multi-pin outputs. Rear panel multi-pin inputs are available as an option. Front panel ground lift switches, one per channel, are standard. Multi-pin input models provide a handy method of interfacing a "local" unbalanced input mixer without compromising the balance of the output send.

 

Both types are available in 32 channel and 16 channel versions.
