Default Re: how to connect s/pdif to analogue desk

Which mixer? Topaz 24? If it's an all-analog desk, then it doesn't have S/PDIF I/O. In that case, you'd need a stereo A/D and D/A that can use S/PDIF. Say you used a Panasonic SV-3700 DAT machine - a pair of RCA cables between 003 and DAT, four mic cables between DAT and mixer. Simple as that. S/PDIF, you know, is a digital format.

If your desk does have a pair of RCA-type coaxial connectors for S/PDIF I/O, then it's as simple as running RCA cables between the two. Your Soundtracs manual should explain how to select those digital inputs and outputs.
