Adding outputs to FS LS56 @ 96khz?

Adding outputs to FS LS56 @ 96khz?

Hi all,

I've been scouring the web for a while trying to find an affordable solution to my dilemma, but haven't found anything yet. Hoping all the knowledgable folks here can help me out.

My main firewire interface is the Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 (love it most of the time!) running into PT9. I'm also using a 16 ch. Dangerous Music 2-bus for analog summing but at the moment, I'm only running 8 analog outputs into the 2-bus from my LS56 but I'd like to run another 8 into the 2bus. I'm trying to find something that will convert 8 adat outputs from my LS56 @ 96khz to 8 analog outputs that I route to the 2bus. There's lots of units out there that'll do it at 48khz but I'd like to stay with 96khz. I'm also trying to find something under $500.

I've looked into maybe using another firewire interface in stand-alone mode but most of them can only take 4 adat inputs @ 96khz..

Any suggestions??

Yeah, when you get into SMUX, your 8 changes to 4.
What you should really do is buy a 2nd unit and link them (if that's possible within the unit's driver software) to prevent latency issues between different converter sets. would also bypass possible clocking and aggregate device issues.
If you're intent on 2FS into your Dangerous unit, you might want to start considering getting into separate conversion and preamps rather than the semi-pro all-in-one "interface" units.
