To those Using the JCF LATTE
 
I am wondering how many use it for mixdown? Do you monitor your mix through it? some say it is colored But i have been listing to it and it sounds to good to monitor through lol Please let me know i was wondering to try to mix though it.

spektor 27th February 2017 07:17 PM

Anybody?

deuc647 27th February 2017 08:04 PM

Its a pretty expensive piece of equipment so I dont think you will find many suitors.cellfone

jrasia 27th February 2017 09:57 PM

Never used a latte but I just got a hold of Josh's new ss 8ch DA converter. DA8-T
VERY NICE! Its designed for multichannel mixing, but I have no reservations using it as a 2ch reference.

spektor 28th February 2017 03:36 AM

I also have the da8 amazing but it two colored to use as refrence.

sdd17 28th February 2017 03:52 AM

i mixed through it a few times and would highly recommend the unit. It has huge sonic integrity.Top gun unit

Monitor off the through print.

spektor 28th February 2017 08:15 AM

Thanks guys for the input. Monitor off the through print. I am sorry i do not understand. I know that the Da is colored what do you guys use the Da for? just trying to find other uses for the Da. I have a Mytek x8 192 that i mix from but i wanted a better Da for mixing for i thought about my Latte. But i think that is Colored. Also just wondering did any of you try a forsell? and comprare it to a Latte? I know it sounds nuts. i like the jcf Latte but i i do need a great da for mixing. thanks i know i sound like a broken record.

sdd17 28th February 2017 05:20 PM

My feeling is that you can do fine work monitoring through the Latte's DA

I use a Prism ada8-xr which is very costly

I would think a Mytek would be great for DA chores

If I only had the Latte DA I wouldnt be upset though

I would check other sources through it so I know what to expect

Like Aja or Brubeck or other work I know very well as a reference.

I used to use The Hedd which is lovely as well.

Fletcher 1st March 2017 05:05 PM

FWIW, I love the thing... only converter I mixed through for YEARS. Thing is, I retired from professional audio [I'm a saloon owner now], so I don't really have a use for it [I was thinking about using for D/A conversion for the house... and using the A/D for running my vinyl into digital storage... but frankly -- that's kind of "overkill"].

If you're interested in one, PM me and let's work out a price. Its in perfect condition.

Peace

spektor 1st March 2017 09:24 PM

Fletcher thanks man but i allready have one. I was wondering how to use the da and can i use it for refrence. How did you use yours? The da side? Also have you ever compared it to forsell? Thanks

chrischoir 2nd March 2017 03:14 AM

DSP Doctor will tell you it's great. And they have them is stock as well

Doc Mixwell 6th March 2017 01:50 PM

Spektor,
Here is how you use the Latte DAC for mixing;

You start out with your Computer Mix. You send all your Tracks to the Latte DAC, and patch that into your monitoring.

Now you listen, and Mix Through the unit. When you feel like a genius you re-record the mix back into the computer.

At least that is how I would use the Latte DA. Besides all the other ways it could be used.

peace

YES! The DA8-T is a new JCF Audio product, it is an Eight Channel solid state DAC that is 1RU like the AD-8. It is available to order with, or without PEP.

spektor 20th March 2017 05:37 PM

Did not know that there is a new jcf product

More info coming soon!

Al Schmitt has one and every mix we've done since he got it many years ago has been printed through that converter at 192KHz. Still the best sounding converter I've ever heard.

spektor 24th March 2017 05:08 PM

Steve what does he use for his da while mixing?

The Latte has AD and DA.

spektor 25th March 2017 04:18 PM

Steve G so he uses the Da for mixing

Weepit 26th March 2017 01:44 AM

If you can demo the Latte, please do so. It really does sound magnificent. Worth every single penny.

Were mixing through an analog console, but when we monitor the playback of the mix, it's through the DA on the Latte.

Josh,

Please make a 24x24 box with the clean DA and 16 aes, and Thunderbolt.

Oh and try and keep it cheap.

Ok thanks for the special order!

3 x AD8
3 x DA8-T
Symphony Thunderbolt w/digital cards
Not cheap
No special order required!

Motu 112D has 3x AES I/O for 24 ins/outs on AES.

Also has 24 ADAT I/O and MADI on USB or thunderbolt.

It's 96khz max samplerate for some dumb reason though.

Probably the best option for interfacing with 24 I/O of JCF.

I use Metric Halo ULN-8 3D via AES for my JCF's... It's nice because the built in mic pres are actually very nice and have split direct analog outs for the AD8 with PEP and you can still monitor in realtime via the builtin AD and the nice MHConsole.

Oh snap! Would you look at that! I thought focusrite rednet or symphony would be my option when I hit the end of the PT/HDX train. That would be even cheaper! I have a lot of years before I have to worry about this -- it will be interesting to see what options are available when the time comes.

Also -- aren't most AES/EBU interfaces limited to 96k? Avid HDIO digital isn't (what I run), but I know rednet is.

Most new AES devices are usable up to 192K
