S/PDIF question, simple solution?

Post by Chas » Fri Apr 23, 2010 4:21 pm

I am wishing to record 4 mic signals simultaneously. I have a Mackie 1402 VLZ3 with line outs connected to my MBOX2's line ins.

I know I can use the S/PDIF input on the MBOX2 to add another 2 ins, but how do I go from my mixer (which doesn't have an S/PDIF out) to the MBOX2's S/PDIF in?

I hope there is a simple and cheap solution to this!

Thanks,
Chas

You'd need an an A/D converter with SPDIF out ($$$$$...even Behringer's cheapest is $200) or any processor (preamp, FX unit, etc.) with stereo line in and SPDIF out.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
