The ODL-312 from Hosa is an inexpensive solution to digital connectivity. The unit is a high quality, digital link, allowing simultaneous transfer of two channels of digital-audio in either or both directions between AES/EBU on XLR connectors and S/PDIF on TosLink optical.
Some manufacturers' DAWs, sound cards or DAT recorders have only S/PDIF outputs and some offer only AES/EBU inputs, or vice versa. The ODL-312 offers a simple solution for making transfers without leaving the digital realm. Serial Copy Management System is disabled when transferring from optical S/PDIF to AES/EBU.
Note: Optical connectors are not compatible with the Alesis optical format.
- Transfers AES/EBU digital audio signals to optical S/PDIF digital audio and vice versa
- Simultaneous conversion in both directions if needed
- Tracks remain in the digital realm - no resampling required
- Inexpensive connectivity solution
