Converts Standard Analog in 1/4 and XLR to 24 ADA Digital output via Lightpipe.

OVERALL OPINION

Talk about a needed accessory in today’s digital workstation world and you will eventually settle upon the need for something like this.

The Behringer ADA8000 is an eight channel digital to analog converter which serves as an eight channel Mic pre amp that can convert the signal into eight discreet channels of ADAT Light Pipe audio at twenty four bit for insertion into any DAW that accepts ADAT and it keeps everything in the Digital domain so you get pristine audio sound and the best part is, it is affordable.

You have eight XLR inputs and eight quarter inch inputs so it is very versatile as a front end input for your Light Pipe equipped DAW.

The XLR inputs also are Phantom powered so you can save a few bucks on not buying a separate power unit for your Mics.

There is a front mounted gain control on each channel that is used on both inputs so you can control what is going out the other end to your Computer, the ADAT section has both an input and an output making it quite system flexible and the outputs are via eight balanced XLR connectors so if you use it as a Pre Amp or Phantom supply, the eight channels can go right into your main mixer with no worries or effort.

What does all this mean to you? A Lot.

If you have a DAW, the eight channels into Light Pipe will allow you to free up the usual eight channels of analog inputs on your interface for more things so you end up with eight channels of digital in and eight channels of analog in or a full sixteen channels of audio input into your computer, which is more than enough to record an average band on separate tracks on a live session or gig.

This is an item that I highly recommend you get for your studio or live recording set up.
