The term ADAT has come to stand for both the original digital tape machines and also for the lightpipe data transmission system. The ADAT lightpipe has become an audio industry standard for digital data transmission between units other than the original ADAT tape machines.

HELP - Digitizing ADAT sVHS Tapes

Hello, hopefully someone here knows the answer to my question.

I'm currently digitizing sVHS tapes using JVC VHS player, together with 'Elgato Video Capture' software.

I'm having the same consistent problems with all the tapes that say "ADAT" on them. All of them do not have any picture or sound. Tape is spinning, but 'No Signal' keep blinking on the screen.

Affordable ADAT to Headphones unit ?

Hi gang !
I'm aiming in all directions with my current headphone amps for the artists.
I do have a Behringer Powerplay Pro-XL HA4700 but it's design makes it receive only one stereo signal and/or 4 analog. I currently use my old (preamp defective) Focusrite Liquid saffire 56 via ADAT for 2 more headphone amps and I keep my RME FF800 headphone out for me..

Adding IO via Adat

I currently own the RME UFX interface, but time has come to make use of the ADAT connections and expand the inputs and outputs. Googling around there are not so many options to choose from. Most common may be the Behringer ADA8200 and the Focusrite octopre mic preamp. To suit my needs better i am considering the Octopre MKII dynamic.

Positioning an ADAT in a Rack

It's been ages since I've used my ADATs (blackfaces and XT20s). When I did, I had racks within which I mounted them, and the angle of incline was minimal. Now, I work almost exclusively 'in-the-box' soon will acquire a desk with rack modules. The desk's rack module configuration places the ADATs at a radical incline, should I choose to rack-mount them in the desk.

Recording parallel with ADAT HD24 and RME UFX

Hi friends,

there is a problem:

I own an ADAT HD24 and an RME UFX.

Now I would like to record more than 24 or 30 tracks simultaneously.

After recording I use Pro Tools for mixing all tracks

How I synchronize these two devices in such a way, that I haven't timing problems in the postproduction or mixing.

ADAT questions

I've never used ADAT so I am clueless. Reason I'm asking is I have two RME ADI-8 QS that are stellar, I love them but I'm not using them now because I replaced these for the Orion 32, which I'm not completely thrilled about in comparison to the sound quality of the QS' but hey, the Orion 32 has 32 ADDA channels and its good enough for jazz.
