Model Description:
DAT - Digital 8 track recorder

Model Details

Alesis' groundbreaking ADAT Digital Audio Recorder changed the way music is recorded, allowing musicians to create professional-quality albums in home and project studios. The ADAT-XT keeps the ease of use and great sound that made the ADAT the most popular digital multitrack of our time, and adds new tricks of its own. The audio quality actually improves on the ADAT's high standard, recording 8 tracks of audio with 18 bit 128 times oversampling A/D converters and 20 bit 8 times oversampling D/As. The ADAT format records on readily available S-VHS® videocassettes, and up to 16 ADAT recorders can be linked together for 128 tracks with no external synchronizer required and without sacrificing a track to timecode. The ADAT-XT offers an improved transport which operates up to 4 times faster than the original ADAT, with new Dynamic Braking control for more accurate locates and faster lock times. An onboard digital editor allows you to make flawless copy-paste digital edits between tracks on a single unit, or between multiple machines. The XT features Tape Offset, Track Copy, Track Delay, and ten autolocate buttons for sophisticated flexibility and control over your productions. Both +4 dBu balanced and -10 dBV unbalanced connections and the ADAT Optical Digital Interfaceô are provided for flexible hookup in your studio, and a comprehensive Vacuum Fluorescent Display provides all the critical information. A rugged six pound die-cast aluminum chassis offers strength and stability while lessening torque stress on the transport mechanism. With its fast, software-controlled transport, onboard digital editor, 10-point autolocator and 100% compatibility with over 70,000 ADATs worldwide, the ADAT-XT builds upon the ADAT format as the most world's popular professional multitrack recorder.
