Topic: Splitting ADAT to 2 Digifaces
I am currently using 2 Octamic-D's for 16 mic inputs into a Digiface, and an ADI-8 Pro for PA outputs for live FOH concert mixing.
I want to add the ability to also mix monitors, using these same Octamics. My existing laptop isn't powerful enough to do both PA and monitor mixing. I also want a second engineer to be able to mix monitors.
Would there be any problems using an ADAT splitter to split the ADAT outputs to a second Digiface, which would be connected to a second computer running the same mixing software, outputting to another ADI-8 (or maybe a Behringer ADA8000)?
If you don't think there would be any problems, could you recommend an ADAT splitter? There are some very inexpensive ones, and some fairly expensive ones. Would the cheap (Radio Shack) ones be sufficient?
