AI-3 24-Bit Analog-to-ADAT Optical Interface
-Channel 24-Bit A/D/A Connectivity at a Breakthrough Price
The Alesis AI-3™ interface offers an affordable solution for conversion between analog and digital audio using the ADAT Optical protocol. With eight analog inputs and outputs, 24-bit digital converters and ADAT Optical digital interface, the AI-3 is perfect for studios that want to form a digital interconnect between recorders, mixers and other compatible tools.
ADAT Digital Interface from the Creators of ADAT
The AI-3 provides eight analog inputs and outputs on balanced 1/4" TRS connectors. These jacks feed 24-bit, 128 times oversampling A/D/A converters, offering a 96dB dynamic range. The digital signal can be routed through the ADAT Optical digital interface into any device that's compatible with the ADAT Optical format. The AI-3 also works in reverse, translating ADAT Optical digital audio signals back to analog with 24-bit precision.
Front Panel Meters and Compact Design
The AI-3's front panel shows signal presence and signal peaks on discrete LEDs for all eight channels. A switch allows for selection between balanced +4dBu and unbalanced -10dBV operation. Another front panel switch allows you to route the ADAT Optical signal through the AI-3 so you can use it in a multi-ADAT system without repatching. The simple rear panel hosts the eight input and eight output jacks, as well as the ADAT Optical interface. With its streamlined design, the AI-3 fits into a single standard 19" equipment rack, saving valuable space in your studio.
ADAT Optical…the World’s Digital Standard
The AI-3 will convert any analog signal to the ADAT Optical digital standard. ADAT Optical is the most widely-used digital interfacing protocol, since it carries eight channels of digital audio at up to 24-bits of resolution using a compact, inexpensive fiberoptic cable.
In addition to several Alesis products, nearly every digital mixer offers ADAT Optical as a standard or optional interface, so the AI-3 may be used to add analog inputs and outputs to consoles from manufacturers such as Yamaha™, Ramsa™, Spirit™, Mackie™ and others.
