    Okay, I was confused and had to look it up:

    You're right SPDIF is a 2 channel protocol, but it can be RCA or optical.
    ADAT and SPDIF (which is Sony) can use the same cables (TOSLINK (which is Toshiba)).
    I thought SPDIF was the cable. I meant ADAT with TOSLINK cables.

    There's another thing I just understood.
    I didn't think about the fact, that many producers are using a mixing console.
    I don't and I don't think I want to, because it needs a lot of space.
    Okay I've got an old Yamaha 8/2 from the early 90s and a Soundcraft 12/4 which is 15 – 20 years old.

    So I think I will need an interface with Mic inputs and phantom power.
    Or maybe, if I want to record drums, it is better to look for a mixing console with 16 in- and outputs and then use a interface like the Ferrofish???
