Prism Sound ADA-8XR AD overview

  • 1Description

The Prism Sound 8C-AD is an 8-channel A/D module offering uncompromising analog-to-digital conversion for producers, musicians, and audio engineers using a Prism Sound Dream ADA-8XR audio interface in a variety of studio environments. Exhibiting low noise, minimal distortion, and high dynamic range, it features eight balanced XLR 3-pin female inputs, which accept line-level signals and feed them to 24-bit/192 kHz A/D converters.

Input level and trim are adjustable per channel for precise calibration and gain optimization. Prism Sound's Overkiller limiters are individually selectable for each of the eight inputs, allowing protection against clipping on a channel-by-channel basis. The 8C-AD easily installs into an analog I/O slot of a Dream ADA-8XR (available separately).

Adds eight analog line-level inputs to your Prism Sound Dream ADA-8XR audio interface
Supports resolutions up to 24-bit/192 kHz
Selectable per-channel Overkiller limiters utilize automatic threshold configuration according to the specified input level, and catch fast transients to minimize A/D clipping
Input level (0.5 dBu increments) and trim (0.05 dBu increments) are adjustable via the host ADA-8XR's menu system
Eight balanced XLR 3-pin female input jacks
