Multiple SPDIF sources in Protools Audio Interfaces

Multiple SPDIF sources in Protools

Is there a box I can get that will allow me to patch in several outboard fx via spdif as auxs in PT?

In other words, I would like to be able to have 3 PCM****'s running at the same time as auxs in PT. All via spdif or aes (no room available on my A/D/D/A for any more analog.

I hope this makes sense.

If I understand correctly, basically an M-audio "lightbridge" but S/PDIF instead of ADAT lightpipe. No ?
I just did a short search and found nothing so far....
I'll keep an eye out..

Well if you bring AES into the equation - doesn't every ProTools HD interface ship with the AES card in the back?

With a DB25 breakout connector you should get 4 stereo channel in and 4 stereo channels out. Haven't messed around too much with using it in that configuration, but I think it is possible.

As as SPDIF though, not sure if there is a such a thing on that one...

What Pro Tools system (HD, LE...) and interface (192, 888, 003...) are you using?

If you are using HD have a look at the Digidesign 192 D:
