Focusrite ISA430 MKII Digital Output Option
The Focusrite ISA Stereo ADC Option is a single channel analog to digital converter card designed for the ISA One and ISA 430 MKII* microphone preamps. It is capable of capturing your audio in up to 24-bit, 192kHz resolution. Digital output formats include a 2-channel single/dual wire AES/EBU or 2-channel S/PDIF via 9-pin D-type, optical S/PDIF, and ADAT connectors. The stereo ADAT (TOSlink) port operates at 24-bit up to 96 kHz.
The equaliser itself features two separate parametric bands plus shelving low and high frequencies, high- and low-pass filters and the ability to switch individual EQ elements into the compressor side-chain. The four powerful processors that make up the ISA 430 MkII can all be used independently or patched into each other in a variety of ways for maximum versatility.
The dynamics section, recalls the original Trevor Stride/Rupert Neve ISA 130 that dates back to 1987. It features a sophisticated expander/gate section as well as a versatile compressor. Both of these feature modern transparent VCA-based control elements for maximum compression without artefacts. The compressor also features the original vintage optical design for a truly traditional sound, and you can mix the original signal into the compressor output, maintaining dynamics as you take control. Like the other sections of the ISA 430 Mk II, there's a “Listen" button so you can hear exactly what each module is doing.
The rear panel digital connector area is accessed by removing the rear cover plate above the ‘DIGITAL OUTPUT’ labelling. The plate is removed by removing the two crosshead screws shown below. Retain these screws for securing the digital card in place later.
*Listing is for digital output option card only, ISA One and Focusrite ISA 430 MkII Channel Strip are sold separately.
