VM-3100PRO: ADAT Optical Digital Signal Defined

Tags: vm-3100pro
Alesis ADAT recorders output their own proprietary digital signals carried over
an optical digital connection. The ADAT digital input and output carries eight
tracks on a single optical cable. The ADAT optical cables carry digital audio
between multiple ADATs and/or ADAT compatible products. The ADAT digital
connection enables multiple ADATs to bounce audio between multiple machines and
to back-up tapes from one machine to another. Optical cables can be connected
from one ADAT to another while power is on or off, and the machines do not need
to be turned on in any particular order.
