The ProFire Lightbridge interfaces up to four Lightpipe devices with a PC or Mac via FireWire perfect for integrating digital mixers, AD/DA converters and/or ADATs with most popular DAW software.

The unit is capable of 32 channels of Lightpipe I/O, S/PDIF I/O and two-channel analog output for a total of 34 x 36 concurrent channels at 44.1 or 48kHz sample rates. (It also supports 16-channel Lightpipe operation at 88.2 and 96kHz sample rates via the SMUX protocol.) The ProFire Lightbridge can output word clock as a master, or slave to external sync on any input, and MIDI I/O also accommodates MIDI Time Code and MIDI Machine Control. Independent volume controls are provided for the ¼ balanced outputs and front panel ¼ headphone jack. The ProFire Lightbridge is compatible with most DAW software
