d/a expansion for trak2

about to purchase a trak2 ..... been considering getting the DA option (8 channels only available ), along with the DIGI-8 AMbus card to integrate the unit into my ProTools Mix+ rig.

Anyone using a similar set-up with the trak 2?

Be great to hear how you're finding it........ could I, with the DA card for instance, have the same PT master output pair feeding 4 pairs of DA - one to a headhone amp, one to a pair of S3A's, one to a CDR, and one to a 2 track tape machine??? .... all with UV22?

downloaded the manual, and it really sounds a versatile piece of kit!

awesome forum, BTW ......

ciao ..... g

There are several Trac2 owners here, I am sure they will respond in time.

I finally acquired a dac-8 for my trak2, will be installing it this weekend. From what I understand of the routing options, what you suggest is entirely possible (multiple pairs output). I'll screw around with it and let you know if there's any snags.

Well I got the DAC-8 installed... not really your typical user-installed option, they didn't really warn me about that. Not a big deal but had to unseat the mainboard, slide it back from it's sister connector in order to seat the DAC board. I love puzzles.

No doubt the 8-in/8-out routing is totally flexible... if you can configure it on PT end, you can most likely set it up on the trak2 end. I haven't tried it specifically yet, but I can't see how your proposed set up would present a problem. With the ADAT-8 interface to my PC I can now finally send audio whizzing all around my studio with dangerous implications.

Good luck man,
