With XLogic Delta Link MADI HD, Multichannel Audio Digital Interface audio equipment like routers, digital mixing consoles and converters can now be directly interfaced with Pro Tools HD®, providing simplified interconnectivity and significant cost reductions, eliminating the need for complicated format conversion workarounds.
If they don't make an HD card, there's no way of doing it directly.
the product you list would do the same job as a digital 192 IF your converters had MADI i/o (madi is a high capacity digital audio connection). They don't...so you'd need the Alpha link as well (MADI to AES) which is obviously a ridiculous expense.
The other options as you know are to buy something like a Lynx which can run the 16AES i/o as well as it's built in AD/DA. Might cost a bit more, but probably better in the long run - I don't know how you're planning to work, but if you ever think about adding additional hardware inserts etc, it could be very handy (even if you're not thrilled at the prospect of Lynx conversion).
Unless there's another box that converts AES with an HD card, them's your options.
as i told you on your other thread on the same mater - if it doesn't have a HD interface like the ones you've mentioned, it can't be done. There isn't a workaround. Your best and cheapest option is the Aurora16 - it has all the AES you need. There is no more cost effective solution.
These options I already knew. I was asking some kinda fantasy options which maybe there is I still don't know
I just don't want to spend too much money for interconnection.
Also I don't want lynx as well because imo thy are super overrated cheap sounding convertors.
I guess digital I/o is perfect solution
1. if they're super overrated cheap converters - then just use the AES. It's still the cheapest way for you.
2. I've got a block of Prism ADA here as well as Lynx Aurora 16 and various other bits n bobs in the three rooms. Cheap sounding they ain't. They do the job very well and are very much worth the dosh. I wouldn't want to pay £4k for them, but at the price they cannot be beaten.
But than how can i connect Lavry and Burl to it with AES/EBU ?
You're being a little awkward for the sake of it.
The cheapest way for you to get 16 AES/EBU is the Aurora 16. Don't use the converter if you don't like it (your loss) - use it as the AES interface. OR use the 192 digital only version. But it costs more. That's it. No more options.
And you bought something and sold it in two weeks? hmmmmmmm.
I was not aware Josh is making converters that have direct Digi HD compatibility. In fact, I'm sure he isn't.
Depending on which JCF box we are talking about here, your options are AES I/O, mostly. The 2-Channel "Latte" Mastering tool, tracking/mixing extraordinaire, does feature Optical I/O, as well as AES I/O on XLR, so if your Digi 192 box, or Apogee AD/DA16x/Rosetta, Lynx Aurora, or Prism ADA8XR unit is equipped with the HD card, and can be switched into AES mode [or adds AES channels to the existing AD/DA], you can add these units onto the system with little effort. Even simpler, if you have a Mac Pro, and use Logic, you can use the built in drives and move on with your life. The Latte was designed with mastering applications in mind, but I can attest to the fact that it is absolutely unparalleled for tracking [as you are using the AMPEX 440 Amplifier block when you switch the DA to the mic amps!!!!]. As well, when mastering the 2-buss, the Latte instantly rids you of any cold/sterile/lifeless feeling to/from the digital recorder!!! Its response is extended, and extremely accurate, yet musical and forgiving at the same time.
