lightpipe mixer

SM Pro Audio has an 8 channel preamp out that has XLR ins and adat lightpipe out (i mentioned it in the SMPR8 thread). If i go into the adat via lightpipe, does anyone had a suggestion for a 16+ channel mixer that can receive 16 channels of adat lightpipe ?

I saw this on e-bay while looking for a limiter. I want somthing like this for vocals so i can free up a compressor for other things. Anyone have experience with it? It looks like just the thing I need.

Adat Angle

Would mounting an adat on an angle cause any problems, or is it kosher to mount them in one of those raxxess slanted economy racks?

Re: 2 track mix down machine

An adition to this question for myself: Would it be worth it to mix from adat to 2 track reel then dump to CD? Does it help that much?

I normaly do 5 tracks live, 3 drum, guitar and bass.I like my adats (LX20's by the way). I'm good at fixing and maintaining them. And i love having tapes t...

Re: slamming a 1/4" reel

I didnt think of that delay part. It has RCA ins and outs, i was going to hook up to those. There is a switch that says "Monitor: Source or Tape." Is that where i would select the right one to have no delay? If so, which one should I use? Also, there is a switch for 7 1/2 isp or 3 1/4 isp. Which one...

I have this old Sony 1/4" 2 track reel laying around and i want to put it to use. My plan is to send my kick and snare track from mic to preamp to reel to adat; in hopes to get this smooth natural compression everyone talks about.
