was hoping to see some cheap prices on original octopre-- guess again!
i guess that means these guys  are still as valuable as they were on day 1 in the studio and are getting used

Protools5LEGuy,


Hmmm… maybe this can get you more inputs as an ADAT slave for a super cheap price !  We talked about the Presonus Firestation in the past, but is suffered as interface due to bugs with it's Mlan implementation.  I would like to add it here as an ADAT slave (no drivers necessary).  Set it up just like an octpre. it has word clock In BNC and eight channel ADAT light pipe I/O and also some pretty good sounding Pre(s) as I remember… also adjustable gain on the line stuff !

Forgot it also has a real tube in pre-amp:

I think this counts as the best "bang for the buck" ADAT slave if it works as imaged in your setup :)

What about the 20 bit Fostex VC-8?


Or an Alesis old ADAT 16bits/modern 20bitsblack with dead heads? Or Tascam Adat clone with 8mm video tape ones?

What makes a convertor a good convertor?

Not a single firestation on ebay... :P
