If you thought analog-to-digital converter innovation had taken a snooze, Dangerous Music is about to wake you up with five game-changing innovations. Packed into a single rack space with our next-generation conversion for the ultimate in musicality and transparency, the CONVERT-AD+ is the most advanced stereo analog-to-digital converter on the market.

The CONVERT-AD+ has no fewer than five— five! —features previously never seen on an analog-to-digital converter. Smart, useful, well-executed innovations put Dangerous Music on the map, and we continue that tradition into the 21st century with the CONVERT-AD+.

SWITCHABLE DUAL INPUTS

Simple, elegant, intelligent. With the push of a button, you can switch between any two balanced line input sources. With zero fuss, you can instantly compare different mastering chains, test your mix against a reference, switch between tracking and mixing, A/B between different mic/preamp scenarios—or craft your own application. From the largest mix rooms, to elite mastering suites, to your home studio, the switchable inputs on the CONVERT-AD+ is about to make everyone’s life a lot easier.

PROPRIETARY CLIP GUARD TECHNOLOGY

Do you dig pushing the A/D beyond 0 dBFS, into clipping, for specific sonics, but don’t want your tracks rejected? Clip Guard will turn off the red light LED at your destination (i.e. DAW). Red indicates clipping on most meters, in actuality, the over indicator in the AD+ turns from green to yellow. Now “Mastered for iTunes” or the CD pressing plant will not refuse your opus, since these red light overs will not register. This is not a limiter. If you can hear clipping and engage clip guard, it will sound identical. It simply disables the clip LED in your DAW or destination device, but you will still be audibly clipping.

ZOOMABLE METERS

In most circumstances, the dynamics of a mix or master reside in the crest factor, the zone between the average and the peak levels. With our meter magnification technology, you can zoom in on just the top 10dB of dynamic activity, providing a finer-resolution peek at what that matters most when mixing and mastering. Warning: this nuanced dynamics crafting tool is addictive.

SWITCHABLE TRANSFORMERS

It’s no secret that a pair of transformers at the end of a mixing or mastering chain can imbue your final prints with heft, character and articulation. With the CONVERT-AD+, just push a button and you’ve got a pair of Hammond transformers wired in series, ready to impart the magic that transformers wield. Hammond is a Canadian company with over 100 years of transformer design and our circuit brings out all the bold colors.

EMPHASIS CONTROL

Our analog designer Chris Muth did it again, taking his deep and esoteric knowledge of what engineers love and turning it into a simple and effective tool. When the transformers are switched in, the Emphasis kicks in a proprietary EQ/compression combo that brings a whole pallet of different colors to your mixing, mastering, and tracking work. Simply dial in the right amount, or none at all, until the smiles in the room get wider. In most cases, you’ll notice a stronger low end footprint and a gentle saturation on the mids and highs. The more you play with it, the more you’ll learn how Emphasis can improve your music.
