ADAT Spec confirmation

Profile picture for user pcrecord

Hi,

I just need to confirm a thing
1 ADAT input/output can deal with 44.1khz and it takes two to run 88.2 or 96khz right ?

I ask that because the specs of the M-Audio Project mix says it can do 88.2 and 96 but It has only 1 input and 1 output.

am I wrong ?

A single ADAT optical (not spdif) can run eight channels at 48k. It will run half as much when you double the sample rate. To make sure you are sync make sure you use both in and out optical cables.

Just as Jack says. The ProjectMix has one lightpipe input and one lightpipe output. In ADAT mode, these can receive/send 8 audio channels at 44.1/48 KHz or 4 audio channels at 88.2/96KHz. To transmit 8 channels at the higher rates would need two lightpipe ports in each direction.
