ICE also functions as a 16 x 16 channel interface to your computer in the studio, streaming high quality digital audio at 24bit, up to 96kHz sample rate over FireWire or high speed USB 2. Units can be linked when streaming over FireWire to expand the channel count even further. Live or in the Allen&Heath ICE-16D Multitrack Recorder, ICE makes multitrack recording easy.
Plug into your desk Direct Outs or use a mix of Groups and Aux sends to save on channels. Starting the recording is as simple as pushing a button. For one thing, there are no rewind and fast forward controls. Nor, for that matter, are there any record arming buttons: Either way, Allen&Heath ICE-16D Multitrack Recorder, it's impossible to overdub to an ICE 16 recording.
Drives need to be formatted to FAT32, which can be done easily from the front panel or any computer. Neither Songs nor files can be named, so it's up to you to make notes of what's what.

On Macs, it should be Core Audio-compliant, meaning that there is no need to install drivers. There's no software mixer utility, nor any DSP routing to Allen&Heath ICE-16D Multitrack Recorder low-latency monitoring through the computer, and the deafeningly loud mono headphone output is not much use for fine-tuning mic placement, as it's easily driven into distortion.
Driver performance is also less than stellar. Both the Firewire and USB2 drivers appear to be generic efforts from Archwave and, unusually, the buffer size is set in milliseconds rather than samples.

What most people will demand of Allen&Heath ICE-16D Multitrack Recorder is the basic ability to record and replay 16 line-level inputs and outputs simultaneously, and it does that without any fuss. However, it should perhaps be pointed out that more upmarket alternatives offer better metering and worthwhile additional features.
By contrast, although you can use the ICE 16 to record from insert points with the appropriate cables, if you want to play back audio through the same console, you'll need separate looms routed to its line inputs — which may well be needed for other purposes. In USB mode the outputs do nothing while recording; it would make life much easier if there was a latency-free hardware monitor option, each output echoing its input on recording. The ICE could stay connected at the insert point, and changing from record to playback would be no sweat. This expansion goes further when using it as a soundcard. The drivers go on painlessly - they are implemented by Archwave, who make drivers and chipsets for some top soundcard manufacturers most of whom have the software rebranded with their own logos. Allen&Heath ICE-16D Multitrack Recorder tested many soundcards on our system, and all that use these have given us noticeably better reliability and latency than most.
The sound quality more than meets the expectations given by the ICEs impressive specs. Unlocking the most exciting potential of this hardware can be achieved by installing one of a range of low-latency VST host applications. Most DAWs are too big to offer speedy enough latency to make this practical live. We engineered some small live shows with very basic mixers using this set-up. Adding 16 channels of surgically precise VST processing with the ICE and a laptop gave incredible results considering the size, weight and cost of the whole system. ICED OVERVIEW.
