    Is anybody using the digital card for any of the compatible Focusrite ISA/Platinum boxes? The new 4 ch ISA box, I forget the model, looks real good and if the converters sound good, that could make life much nicer.

    I did read a review of the card and it got a thumbs up, can't remember now where that was though, its been awhile.

    I have been looking to get one for a Voicemaster Pro I purchased recently.

    Sorry I can't be of more help.

    I don't know if this could be applicable, but I have an Octopre with the ADAT lightpipe card and I say it really sounds good, a major step up from common soundcard converters, more natural and not harsh sounding in the high end, though it obviously can't compare to dedicated A/D units like Apogee or the likes.

    Hope this helps

    Unfortunately not, only with Digi 001 pres and A/Ds and they (the Focusrite) clearly sounded more natural but still crisp and defined, they are superior.
