ADAT Optical

A specific form of optical audio data transfer developed by Alesis for their ADAT machines. ADAT optical uses the same interconnects as the ubiquitous TosLink two channel format, but includes eight channels of digital audio data. ADAT optical was a key cog in the development of the original ADAT back in the early 1990s. Today it is one of the standard digital I/O connections found on many pieces of digital audio gear such as mixers and recorders.
