Default advice about audio mixer stand alone, pt interface and lightpipe converter?

I am looking for an 8 channel mixer with adat lightpipe output and usable as pt interface.

Is there something around? thanks.

I noticed you said something about HD24 on your other post (and cross-posting is a big no-no).

What exactly are you trying to connect to what, and what signal flow(s) do you want to use?

Just rockin'...what more is there?

Between his two posts, it seems he'd like to use the HD24 as a standalone preamp/converter, going Adat into an interface to his computer.

If this is the case, then the Focusrite Saffire Pro 56 would be a great choice, since it has two adat ins, allowing him to use 16 of the HD24's channels.

On the other hand, in briefly looking into this, it seems that the HD24 converters are not considered to be that great, so he might be better off using a couple of Octopre's into the Saffire 56.
