- Overall Opinion
- got it long ago, it was my first ADAT interface. That one I had before Behringer ULTRAGAIN PRO-8 DIGITAL ADA8000. Both had purchased for my previous summers Fostex VF-16 was a rare multitrack digital interface having ADAT. If I went to the Behringer, it was only because the Fostex had no microphone or preamp gain control input. Too bad because it is to my knowledge the only interface ADAT (excluding USB sound card or firewire so) to be at half-rack width. And the sound quality was more than correct: clean and accurate sound.
When in ADAT interface mode, there is the possibility of "duplicate" the input signals: the first 2 replicated 3 times on the other 6 channels, the first 4 duplicate entries 1 time on Channels 5 8 or without duplication: the 8 inputs are used simultaneously.
If I remember correctly, the only digital audio has to be supported on this model is 16-bit 44.1 kHz while the ADAT format can also support the 16-bit 48 KHz, 24 bit 48 KHz and 24 bit 96 KHz (the latter only 4 channels): damage but ...
- ADAT - analog converter and SPDIF - analog converter. The connection is: 8 RCA analog input, 8 output RCA analog, 1 optical ADAT input, 1 ADAT optical output. There's everything you need to convert A / DD / A 8 channels. A default connection is the CAR, not Jack 6.35. The analog inputs are chosen in front: 2 buses, 4 buses, or 8x mono. There is a synchronization system, but I do not use it.
- Overall Opinion
- The sound quality of the conversion is excellent. A little breathless, but it "sounds" accurate. It is a small box that will moults services to all those who, like me, a digital mixer and want to expand the number of votes their table. At the price where there is this kind of "Swiss Army knife," it would be wrong to deny!
