    I have myself an adat sound card...
    but i have no mixer to go with it...
    main objective here is to get 8 channels of sweet drumming onto the computer as 8 seperate tracks of sweet drumming instead of bouncing the tracks down to 1 mono unmixable channel :)

    problem is .. i can't find any 8 channel mixers with adat on them..
    (ARSE!)
    anyone know of any

    thanks!

    Cheapest solution is Behringar ADA8000. It has 8 AD converters and mic pres. Not bad sounding for the price. There are quite a few more to choose from.

    There are also a few 8 channel pre's with built in ADAT conversion. Mackie and Presonus are two off the top of my head.

    here:

    just to check, so if i had 8 microphones... (condensor and dynamic) and i connected them to that equiptment (on each 8 channels) then i could then take the adat.. connect it to my computer and record on cubase? (on 8 seperat channels)

    is that right?

    if so WOW! AWESOME D:D:


    but essentially its a Mic Preamp that i'm looking for then... (with adat output)

    Here, these are 8 channel pres with ADAT outs, they will sound way better than the behringer.

    The Digimax

    The Digimax LT (ADAT Only, no soft limiters)

    The Mackie Onyx 800R (A nice piece of gear)

    Yeah, but you have to buy the digital output seperately. Not a big deal though. I would personally prefer the Mackie, and it would end up costing about the same.

    what's the disadvantage in having no soft limmiters?

    oh and

    "Processes 44.1 and 48 kHz sample rates"
    found on here http://www.dv247.com/invt/18218?source=google&campaign=uk&ad=18218


    just out of curiosity

    does that figure vary?

    so for example.. when you have on mic plugged in.. is that what that figure applies to?
    so if i had all 8 mics plugged in with sound going through..
    would the quality of each channel degrade at the other end?
    see.. I'm planning on using it for drums...

    or am i talking out of my ARSE! :lol:
