Standalone light-pipe box???

So I have extra inputs on my 192s in the form of lightipipe but no way of using them. I know that alesis makes a box of converters that kicks out lightpipe but is there anything decent? I just want 8 analog ins and a simple digital out but so far I havent been able to find one .

I recently had to deal with this same thing. I was trying to get 8 in's to a 002 rig so I could sync it to our HD rig for live recording.


The winner was a Pre-sonus digimax light. Don't buy any of the Motu units. $hit don't work standalone.

I looked at the Presonus but to be honest everything I have used of thiers was pretty much crap so the thought of using thier converters scares me. I dont really feel any better using Presonus over Alesis tbh. Thanks for the reply though! I guess Iw ill keep looking for something that sounds decent but wont necessitate selling a kidney,

Panasonic used to make a 8 analog-in with a lightpipe output.
I think one or two other a/d manufacturers do too including the Frontier Tango 24.

I'll see if I can take one of those RMEs for a spin and see how it sounds. Thanks.
