The Roland S-2416 digital snake stage unit offers a 24 input x 16 output analogue and 8 input x 8 output digital system, for a total of 32 input and 24 output channels. Two REAC ports are also provided to enable the ability to cascade an additional snake for expanded I/O or for a fully redundant, zero-loss audio back-up solution.

The S-2416’s rear panel provides AES/EBU connectivity (25-pin D-sub type) for 8 channels of input and output, enabling connection to speaker processors, amps, and other AES/EBU-enabled devices. Input via AES is assigned to channels 25 through 32 and output is selectable by a mode switch. When combined with analogue input and output, the S-2416 delivers up to 32 inputs and 24 outputs.

Newly developed, high-grade discrete mic preamps are provided to ensure the highest-quality, most transparent audio. Each XLR jack features three-coloured lights that clearly communicate the status of phantom power, clipping, and signal presence. These preamps can be controlled using any Roland V-Mixer, 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.??When switched into cascade mode, S-2416 can be connected to another Digital Snake for up to 40×40 I/O channels. Any of four patterns can be selected for the number of channels output to the additional Digital Snake with a cascade connection: 40 (1 – 40 ch), 32 (9 – 40 ch), 24 (17 – 40 ch), and 16 (25 – 40 ch).
