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.

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)

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.

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:
