Focusrite Platinum A/D Card
Product Description for the Focusrite Platinum A/D Card
This Focusrite Digital Option A/D converter card is specifically designed for Platinum Series Processors: The Penta, Trak Master, VoiceMaster Pro and TwinTrak Pro. The Digital Option A/D converter card is 24-bit and 128x oversampled, handling sample rates of up to 96 kHz, with S/PDIF output and a BNC word clock I/O connector. Tracking a vocal direct into your DAW or any other digital recording media has never been easier or more affordable. An ADC lock LED on the front panel shows when Word Clock sync has been established.
Integral interface for minimum noise
Focusrite Digital Option A/D converter cards are designed to meet the absolute maximum design specifications possible for 48 or 96kHz, at 16-, 20- or 24-bit resolution. However, the real benefit of the Digital Option A/D converter cards comes from using a recording system in which the ADC is included within the closed environment of a single box. The integral closed environment allows a shorter record path to digital output, with no unnecessary analog connections out of the Focusrite box to the input of the recording equipment.
A further benefit of the Digital Option's single, closed environment is the reduction of unwanted noise in the vicinity of the converter circuitry. Because the Focusrite unit operates as an analog device right up to the point of the ADC, the converter environment is extremely quiet and controlled. It also contain no extraneous clocks or other sources of digital noise, which exist within many digital desks and multi I/O DSP environments, any of which may further contribute to the lack of clarity and accuracy.
