The Focusrite ISA 2-Channel 192kHz A/D Card allows the Focusrite ISA ONE preamp to be used as a high-quality two-channel ADC to convert analog signals to various digital formats (AES, S/PDIF and ADAT). And, since AD should be the last process on your input chain (before recorder), this system lets you insert a signal processor, such as a compressor or EQ, between the ISA Preamp and the ISA sound card. The ISA 2-Channel 192kHz A/D Card also has connections for word-clock in/out.
The card provides optical digital outputs for both ISA One ADC input channels, which operate over the sample frequency ranges 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96kHz (ADAT), 176.4, and 192kHz (S/PDIF). The card features an ADAT-type lightpipe output and S/PDIF TOSlink output connectors. The card also provides AES and S/PDIF format outputs via a 9-pin D-type connector on the rear panel. The full range of sample rates up to 192kHz are available.*
The card can be retrofitted to the ISA One at any time. Installation is simple and
Focusrite ISA 2 Channel A/D card
Focusrite's ISA stereo ADC embodies cutting-edge conversion technology, encompassed within pristine Focusrite circuitry. The ISA stereo ADC is a 2-channel analog to digital converter card designed for use with Focusrite's ISA One or ISA 430 MKII microphone preamps. The ISA stereo ADC provides 2 channels of the highest quality 24-bit conversion at all sample rates up to 192 kHz. Digital output formats include 2 channel single/dual wire AES/EBU or 2 channel S/PDIF, all via a 9 pin D-type connector, as well as optical S/PDIF and ADAT. The ADAT (TO Slink) port is stereo and operates at 24-bit, up to 96 kHz. The card comes as standard with the ISA One Digital and can be retrofitted to an ISA 430 MKII or an ISA One at any time. Established in 1985, Focusrite Audio Engineering Ltd. has evolved from a manufacturer of professional recording consoles to one of the world's most respected producers of professional grade mic preamplifiers and signal processors.
