Focusrite ISA 2-Channel AD Card

The Focusrite ISA 2-Channel AD Card is an optional card for the ISA that embodies the cutting-edge conversion technology encompassed within pristine Focusrite circuitry, providing 2 channels of the highest quality 24-bit analog to digital conversion at all sample rates up to 192kHz.

The Focusrite ISA 2-Channel AD Card is a stereo digital output card designed to work with the ISA 430 MkII channel strip and the ISA One. Digital output formats include 2 channel single/dual wire AES/EBU or 2 channel S/PDIF, all via a 9 pin D-type connector, as well as optical S/PDIF and ADAT. The ADAT (TOSlink) port is stereo and operates at 24-bit, up to 96kHz.

The Focusrite ISA 2-Channel A/D Converter is unrivaled in terms of both price and performance. Just paying for the PCB and circuitry, without any additional casing and metalwork, affords a considerable reduction in cost whilst maintaining an extremely high level of sonic clarity. However, the benefits from installing Focusrite's optional ADC extend far beyond the obvious financial advantages and space saving issues. As most converters use the same chips, it is the quality of the surrounding analogue circuitry that makes the difference. This is the reason why the Focusrite ISA ADC is unrivaled in terms of both price and performance.

The Focusrite's R and D team have carefully considered the organization of the PCB layout and grounding, ensuring that the S/N ratio and linearity of the converter are optimized. The noise floor and THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) are kept to a minimum by the nature of the power supply and the analogue input design, with analogue filtering positively effecting the sound of the digital noise.

In addition, the supporting circuitry around the ADC (dealing with data transmission, bit reduction and incoming word clock) has been carefully structured, as it influences the converter through heat, power supply and data jitter. One of the most important aspects of the ADC is the clock design, as this determines the linearity of the digital output. All Focusrite ADCs are designed to have incredibly low jitter figures (44.1kHz-192kHz < 20 psec) which significantly improve the quality of the sound.

With the converters housed within the analogue units, the signal path is kept as short as possible, having no unnecessary analogue connections to the inputs of recording equipment. In addition, Focusrite units do not contain extraneous clocks or other sources of digital noise, unlike so many digital desks and multi-I/O DSP configurations.

Focusrite ISA 2-Channel AD Card Features

  • 2-Channel analog to digital converter card
  • Works with Focusrite's ISA One or ISA 430 MKII microphone preamps
  • AES/EBU, S/PDIF digital outputs; optical S/PDIF, ADAT outputs
  • 24-Bit, up to 96 kHz; the ISA 430 MKII's optional A/D is stereo and allows for inputs from internal post-processing and external sources simultaneously
