ADAT i/o to PC via Firewire or USB

Discussion in 'Converters / Interfaces' started by PinguinoGrande, Sep 5, 2005.

  1. I purchased an alesis ADAT machine a couple years ago and now would like to transfer my files to my laptop either by firewire or usb. Unfortunately everything I find is over $200 as it has a bunch of inputs (1/4 and xlr) which I dont really need.

    If anyone has any cheap suggestions, I would appreciate it greatly. Preferably I would also like to be able to record live to my laptop by running through the adat.

    Thanks for your help.

    Cheapest digital adata I/O (toslink) you're gona find will probably be the Frontier Designs Wavecenter @ around $290 retail USD. (8 channels)

    Above that a Frontier Desgin Dakota for around $420 retail USD. (16 channels)

  4. A Good option is FireWire M-Audio AudioPhile. I have been trying it out for several weeks now and really like it. It does not have all the extra I/O you are talking about and has 24-bit/96 which is always nice.

    If you look it up on froogle you can get it for about 139 + ship.

    Alternativly if you want to go Internal you can really save some denero. Some of those internal card have really nice I/O and are cheap!

    Hope this helps!
