    Focusrite ISA ADN8 Eight-channel A-D card. 8 Channel 24/192 Dante A/D Option Card for ISA 428 MkII and 828 MkII

    Notify me when this product is available:

    Eight-channel A-D card for ISA 428 MkII and ISA 828 MkII, including Dante connectivity.

    With the introduction of the ISA ADN8, the classic ISA mic pre can be implemented directly on a Dante network, providing console-grade preamps to the most advanced of audio networks. ISA ADN8 is an optional eight-channel A-D card that provides high-quality, precision analogue-to-digital conversion for the Focusrite ISA 428 MkII and ISA 828 MkII microphone preamps. Featuring Dante, AES3 and ADAT connectivity, the card operates at sample rates up to 24-bit/192kHz.

    The card offers a familiar set of standard professional connectors with primary and secondary RJ45 Dante output ports, an AES59 DB25 connector for AES3 output, and a pair of TOSLINK connectors for ADAT output. Word Clock I/O on BNC connectors allows synchronisation with many external devices.

    Dante outputs on the ISA ADN8 provide ISA 428 MkII and ISA 828 MkII with network connectivity to all Focusrite RedNet devices and Red interfaces, as well as any other Dante-enabled device from hundreds of manufacturers. Metering and settings are accessed through RedNet Control, routing is configured using Dante Controller. Both RedNet Control and Dante Controller software are included.


    • Eight-channels of high-quality, precision analogue to digital converter for ISA 428 MkII and ISA 828 MkII
    • Up to 24-bit/192kHz sample rate
    • Dante connectivity via Primary and Secondary Ethernet ports for redundancy and auto switchover in case of failure
    • Industry standard eight-channel AES59 DB25 output connection for AES3
    • Two TOSLINK connectors for ADAT (8 channels at up to 96kHz; 4 channels at 192kHz)
    • Word Clock I/O on BNC connectors allows synchronisation with many external devices
    • RedNet Control and Dante Controller software allow Dante routing and control from a computer; no hardware patching required
