    Mar 06 2008 | 2:26 pm
    hello there,
    We're looking for a (pc-like, cheap) ADAT onboard pci-e card for a Mac Pro. Any suggestions ?
    Much appreciated,
    Gideon

      check out the RME HDSPe AIO.
      unfortunately it doesn't ship yet, but it might be worth the wait.
      cheers, piet

      very interesting yes, thank you. rme has allways worked perfect for us, excellent quality, but a bit pricey also.. in this case the quality matters less, since it's adat and mostly used for fft analysis etc.
      marian.de has the marc-a card, a very simple and cheap adat in/out solution, for pc only, but the os x drivers are in beta and should be released soon. (http://www.marian.de/en/products/marc_a)
      other alternative is the m-audio lightbridge, around 400 euros and 4 adat ins&outs, value for money.. but firewire 400, no pci (http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/ProFireLightbridge-main.html )
      best,

      I think you won't find a a more cost-effective solution than buying the new RME Pci-e card compatible with both Digiface and Multiface.

      thanks, I guess you are right, I know about an adaper from express card to pcmcia http://sewelldirect.com/Express-Card-to-PCMCIA-Adapter.asp?& which comes around 100$, but I have not seen anybody successfully using it. the RME Pci-e is ~315EUR, which is in USD 430, err 450, 470, 490..., oops, better get it today! marius.
