want to patch mac pro digital output into my mixer with PT open...

I want to be able to reference tracks from itunes or the web and just toggle back and forth from pro tools outputs to the mac pro digital outputs on my mixer once the patch is setup. obviously PT can't share the sound card, so I'd be taking that digital out from the computer and converting it to analog and patching into an alt input on the mixer.

I remember reading about a cheap d to a converter, jim williams brought it up a few times, but I can't find the threads.. anybody remember what it was called?

or does anybody have a cheap but good solution. I'm not looking to spend a load of money, but bang for buck would be good since my other d to a is the apogee symphony i/o. maybe somebody is using a similar set up. would love to hear!

thanks!

I like to import the track right into the session that I am working on.

yeah that's an option, but not for what I need to do.

Are you talking about the toslink/optical to rca converters? Those are about $20 or so on eBay.
