Topic: Digiface ADAT Locked w/ blinking Green light
My Main ADAT converter is a Lucid 88192 that runs IN & Out of my Hammerfall Digiface. Works great.
I have recently changed my setup and added additional converter / preamps. The Sync Check in DSP Settings shows it as being locked yet the green light on the input state of the Digiface blinks green.
The recorded audio seems to be ok. I hear no issues. I don't think there's any jitter, they sound like solid tracks. I've been digital recording for 20 years & have to say I'm not exactly sure what jitter sounds like but I'd probably know if there was an issue.
My main question is... Should I add an external Word Clock or is the ADAT clock solid even though there's a blinking green light on the Digiface?
What I have found is if a converter/preamp has both In/Out ADAT, all is good, no blinking light and says Sync. If the converter does not have a IN then the light blinks green yet it says Locked.
I have searched the net extensively for the answer but have failed to find the info I'm looking for in regards to the RME unit.
I have read that ADAT clock travels only on the Out light-pipe. If this is so, how is the 2nd Converter/Preamp locked and recording seems to be ok?
I have a feeling that Sync Check should be reporting that all ADAT units should say Sync?
I'm also thinking I should just get a clock. Probably get a BLA MkIII or a used Big Ben.
I'd be thankful for any help or answers.
