24 Channel Digital I/O Accessory for the HDR24/96
You asked for it…and we listened. The OPT•24 for the Mackie HDR24/96 Recorder/Editor is the latest addition to the Mackie Tape I/O card family. Unlike the other 8-channel Mackie Tape I/O cards, the OPT•24 provides 24 channels of ADAT™ formatted digital audio in and out of the Mackie HDR24/96 via three sets of TOSlink optical connectors. Because of it's unique feature set and design, the OPT•24 is not used in the standard Tape I/O card cage - it is installed in one of the vacant PCI slots inside the HDR24/96 and provides a permanent 24 channel digital I/O platform that can be used in tandem with whatever other Tape I/O cards may be installed - which means the customer now has the ability to interface optical and analog/AES formatted signal together without purchasing and swapping I/O cards.
The OPT•24 is primarily designed for those who need to use multiple I/O formats and don't want to suffer the time and effort to swap cards in and out. Because the OPT•24 installs into one of the PCI slots adjacent to the Tape I/O card cage, it can be used in tandem with whatever other I/O flavors you want to use. The OPT•24 furthers the applicability of the HDR24/96 as a live recorder for those customers looking to record with analog inputs BUT mix down digitally. Also, OPT•24 allows the HDR24/96 to become an analog tape archive machine - dub your old analog reels down to a hard drive and start mixing digitally. Because the selection of I/O format can be done right in the software, all the ins and outs can be hooked up all the time - and switched back and forth at will. The OPT•24 represents Mackie's ongoing commitment to provide the highest quality, feature-rich products….that just keep getting better and better. Also works with the Mackie MDR24/96.
