Standards and Practices
Standards help laserists and the industry by insuring compatibility and interoperability between components and systems. Practices are methods of doing things that simplify operations or save time and effort.
Practices are ideas and methodologies that are in use in the industry but which have no official sanction and are not entrenched in a recognized standard. They are presented here as information that many have contributed to this web site. There is no consensus on these practices, and it is not required that laserists adhere to these practices in order for systems to work together.
Multiple shows/modules on a single ADAT tape
It is not always convenient, and it certainly is not
cost effective to record each show or module onto it's own ADAT tape.
This is especially the case if you wish to archive a number of shows onto a
single ADAT tape and still access them quickly. One could have an
index with start and end times printed on the label, but when accessing
shows on multiple tapes for client demos, it is inconvenient and time
consuming to be shuttling tapes looking for time indexes.
We welcome contributions to the practices pages, where they can be discussed, scrutinized and modified to meet the needs of laserists. Send your ideas and suggestions, as well as your constructive comments, to our E-mail.
