    A form of data transfer developed by Alesis for use in their ADAT machines. Using light as the carrier signal, ADAT optical is similar to TosLink two channel formula and uses a similar connector, but is optimized to include up to eight discrete channels of digital audio. Used today as one of several digital transmission protocols for linking digital audio devices.
