ADAT to computer transition

    Can anyone tell me about their transition from ADAT to computer?
    Can anyone recommend a good card for getting my adat tracks into the computer? I'm looking at the G5's

    Did you keep using your ADAT to record with? I would like only to use my ADAT to archive and remix my S-VHS adat tapes if possible.

    What software are you mixing with?

    I use an Emu 1212m($150 at G.C.) and set my software to receive an external optical signal from my blackface ADAT. It runs at 48khz/16 bit, so set the software accordingly. I find the ADAT useful when I want to record drums away from my computer or backup old tapes. Its a pretty clean transfer with not much signal degradation(at least to my ears).

    Greetings Brusco,

    If you're considering a Mac, I'd suggest something from the MOTU range - 2408 for the PCI route or 828 for firewire.
