Dat Recording Question...
Since I wanna record to dat, should i get a mixer with 8 channels, or can I do it with less??? Can one digital input - output record multiple parts to multiple tracks ??? (Maybe, when thinking of digital i/o, I am thinking too much of the way midi works). Since I am getting a dat recorder, should I just get a digital mixer instead of an analog mixer????
Moreover, HOW DOES A DAT RECORDER WORK???? What does it do, how does it record, and what is so great about them (besides it being small and relatively cheap.)
you cannot multitrack on a dat deck it is used solely for 2 track mixdowns, masters, etc...like an analog tape deck.
Of course you can multitrack on a ADAT, i.e. the Alesis LX has 8 tracks.
d.a.t, digital audio tape recorder. records 2 tracks (left and right) down to a small tape. the inputs will differ depending on what type of deck you get most come standard with analog ins and outs (rca or 1/4 in) and a set of digital ins and outs (spdif or optical). you cannot multitrack on a dat deck it is used solely for 2 track mixdowns, masters, etc...like an analog tape deck.
