The Alesis ADAT LX-20 is a 20-bit version of the ADAT line of multi-track audio recorders...
I used the ADAT LX-20 with the ADAT XT. Even though the LX20 was the most affordable ADAT ever made, it offers the same 20-bit ADAT Type II digital recording format. I enjoy recording to a physical medium much more than laying a track on a software recording platform.
The LX20 is compatible with all ADAT-model recorders as well as peripheral devices like the BRC and third-party products like digital consoles, interfaces and more. Using the same Optical Digital Interface and Synchronization Interface as other ADATs, the LX20 may the ideal recorder to add more tracks to an existing system. The LX20's 5 specialized locate points, used with its Auto Play, Auto Return, Auto Record, and Auto Loop functions, are designed to help you record quickly and easily.
For standard analog interfacing like connecting to a mixer, the LX20 includes sixteen unbalanced -10dBV inputs and outputs on phono (RCA) connectors. The LX20 also offers the ADAT Optical Digital Interface, which carries up to 8 audio tracks at once completely in the digital domain and allows you to connect to other ADATs in a system or dozens of devices that use this innovative transfer protocol. If you've waited on the sidelines of the digital recording revolution, the LX20 is the answer for affordable, 20-bit ADAT-quality recording.
