Product Description

The Cranborne Audio 500ADAT is an ADAT expander in a 500 series rack, allowing you the integrate any module into your studio workflow using an ADAT equipped audio interface.

500ADAT features analog essentials that unite digital and analog production workflows such as an 8-into-2 analog summing mixer, zero-latency artist mixer with 2 reference-quality headphone outputs, and true ADAT & SMUXII/IV transmission to enable operation at sample rates up to 192kHz

By containing its own converters and using ADAT to transport audio to and from the 500 series format, 500ADAT removes analog cabling spaghetti between your rack and interface while eliminating the worry of mismatched analog operating levels between interface inputs and 500 series module outputs. 500ADAT is compatible with any session running from 44.1kHz to 192kHz and can achieve 8 channels of I/O expansion at 44.1kHz to 96kHz or 4 channels of I/O expansion at 176.4/192kHz.

What makes 500ADAT's 8-into-2 channel summing mixer so special is that it is positioned after the 8 500 series slots - allowing you to insert saturation or subtle 'bus-compression' modules and create a stereo mix using 500ADAT’s dedicated analog level and pan controls beneath each module. 500ADAT's summing mixer also has a dedicated line output which can be used to send your stereo mix into your audio interface for recording.

500ADAT moves away from clunky "virtual" software mixers and gets your hands back onto the mix. By using 500R8’s high-headroom analog summing mixer, you can create zero-latency, all-analog mixes of live sources that can be blended with the Aux Input and sent directly to the recording musicians via C.A.S.T. or the local headphone outputs.

C.A.S.T. stands for Cat 5 analog Snake Transport and enables cost effective and organised cable management around your studio. C.A.S.T. repurposes off-the-shelf, shielded Cat5 networking cables to transport 4 channels of balanced analog audio over a single cable.
