    anyone know of a simple interface to get 8 channels of audio via toslink (adat) thru firewire or usb? we've been using a yamaha 01v with an adat card for gigs and i'd love to be able to mult the mix to the 8 tracks of adat and record on my ibook. fwiw, i'd be using dp (or pt) on a mac.

    Hey Tony,

    You've got a couple options:

    MOTU 828 - It'll do 8 channels of lightpipe and 8 channels of analog. They've got the MKII version coming out soon.

    Presonus firestation: Same kind of deal.

    Both are firewire setups. There might be a few more out there too.

    How do you like the 01V? I'm looking into the 01v96 for a remote setup. I figure that and either an HDR or an iBook setup like yours and I'd be golden. How do you like the onboard dynamics?

    Hope this helps.

    Personal preference as to what unit you want to get.

    Simply stating that it's not worth it isn't enough to warrant your opinion.

    Can you give us more information as to specifically why you say this?

    Pros and Cons over each unit?


    Opus :D
