    I'm trying to find detailed information on the original (i.e. not the
    new improved) ADAT data format. So far I've found this:

    but the data is incomplete and known to be wrong in several respects.
    Alesis tech support engineers are unable to help, due more to
    unenlightened management than legal reasons; their patent covers only
    the method of creating the data stream.

    Note though that if you are under NDA you should probably consult the
    company lawyer before replying. :)

  2. Have you tried contacting somebody like Eddie Ciletti? If anyone knows, I
    bet he does.

    Now why didn't I think of that? (Eddie who?) will be full of wannabe studio engineers, that's my guess.
    This is an electronics problem.

  4. Eddie Ciletti is a well-known electronics tech who writes columns for a
    couple of trade mags. He repairs ADATs and has written on them extensively.
    His web site is, or something like that. is about as full of wannabe studio engineers as is full of wannabe electronic engineers. That is to
    say, there are plenty of bozos, and there are also some people who know the
    answer to your question and will, if approached politely, often tell you.

    Probably not. You're not asking about how to modulate the heads. If I
    understood your question, it's a media format problem - software, not
