Ok, First post, take it easy on me, I'll try to make my question clear and to the point. I work for a large university and we have thousands of recordings on a variety of formats. Currently, we take the obsolete format and simply record it to CD, mostly just to have an access copy. We would like to record to a digital audio file. To do this, as I understand it, we need a ADC, and some sort of DAW recording set-up. I have been looking at several ADCs, one of which is the Focusrite LS 56. Assuming we have the right adapters and connectors for input, is it conceivable that we could connect, say: a DAT player, phonographs, cassette decks, reel to reel tape player, etc to the ADC and have it recorded to a digital audio file? Just wondering if this type of interface is the right way to go or if there's something else out there to consider.
