The Focusrite ISA 2-Channel 192kHz A/D Card allows the Focusrite ISA ONE preamp to be used as a high-quality two-channel ADC to convert analog signals to various digital formats (AES, S/PDIF and ADAT). And, since AD should be the last process on your input chain (before recorder), this system lets you insert a signal processor, such as a compressor or EQ, between the ISA Preamp and the ISA sound card. The ISA 2-Channel 192kHz A/D Card also has connections for word-clock in/out. The card provides optical digital outputs for both ISA One ADC input channels, which operate over the sample frequency ranges 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96kHz (ADAT), 176.4, and 192kHz (S/PDIF). The card features an ADAT-type lightpipe output and S/PDIF TOSlink output connectors. The card also provides AES and S/PDIF format outputs via a 9-pin D-type connector on the rear panel. The full range of sample rates up to 192kHz are available.* The card can be retrofitted to the ISA One at any time. Installation is simple and can be done by the user with no engineering experience necessary. *To access the digital signals from the 9-pin D-type output connector, an AES or S/PDIF D-type conversion cable must be purchased separately in the following configurations: AES cable: 9-pin D-type to 4 male XLR, S/PDIF cable: 9-pin D-type to 4 male RCA phono FEATURES Stereo 24-bit / 192kHz AES/EBU, S/PDIF and ADAT ADC Cutting-edge conversion technology 2 channels of the highest quality 24-bit conversion at all sample rates up to 192kHz Incredibly low jitter significantly improves sound quality. SPECIFICATIONS Output formats include 2 channel single/dual wire AES/EBU or 2 channel S/PDIF, all via a 9 pin D-type connector, as well as optical S/PDIF and ADAT ADAT (TOSlink) port is stereo and operates at 24-bit, up to 96kHz


Korg Prologue

If they just would of had the two Analog Oscillators running through the KingKorg's digital filters options with that ONE digital oscillator and a basic yet respectable sequencer, and the included effects, THERE would be reason the hyperventilate. THAT would have been eye opening, even possibly ground breaking. "Flagship".... please. Hardly.

Today's Loudness Standards in Mastering Mainstream Material

...but in my opinion that is mostly well-meaning internet chatter, not good practical advice. My advice is to make one digital master that sounds good and use it for everything. Let the various streaming sites normalize it as they wish. It will still sound just as good. Here's a conversation I had...
