Topic: Volume Control on ADI2 Pro in Digi Thru Mode

Hello,

Here's my setup:

UCX connects to the Mac with USB

UCX SPDIF Out (Optical) - ADI2 Pro SPDIF In, under Digi Thru Mode

ADI2 Pro AES Out - Genelec 7270A + 8351 (Chained with AES) 

So the question is:
Is it possible to use the ADI2's Volume Knob to control the output volume?

Now the 1/2 is displayed as "Off" even though the sound is coming out of the speakers. 3/4 for phones works fine. 

Is it because the signal just passes through ADI2 so volume control has to be done on UCX's TotalMix? 

Thanks for your time!

Not sure, maybe digital through is not the correct mode, maybe it works as designed as it passes the signal through.

Please try to use ADDA converter mode and set digital out source to either default or main out (if required).

Thank you so much! Switching to ADDA mode worked.
I chose the Digi Thru Mode since I thought there's no actual conversion happening, just passing through digital signal.

Nice that it worked for you.

BTW .. the description of the different modes in chapter 17 of the manual are useful to find the proper mode.
