The Alesis ADAT was one of the very first digital tape recorders and was very popular during the 80's and 90's. The reasonable price of the ADAT machine meant it was quite popular in small and home studio setups. Many bands and artistes used the ADAT to record their songs and being able to sync ADAT's together meant you could record nearly as many tracks as you wanted.

The ADAT is now widely unused these days but Broadwood retains a number of these machines and can perform a transfer to .wav or .aif file, sample accurate and synced for you to remix your masterpieces. Resulting transfers will be supplied on DVD's or sent via filetransfer.
