Topic: ADI-4 DD 8ch AES out
I’m trying to hook up my Genelec 5.1 monitor setup to my Mac. I have an UAD Apollo x8p interface which delivers 8ch ADAT to the RME ADI-4 DD through two optical cables. I have managed to get green sync and signal LEDs on both these on the ADÌ-4. I also get an AES signal out of the one XLR output on the ADÌ-4. It’s screamingly loud, but I get sound in my monitor.
My question is: how can I get the other 7 channels of AES out of the ADÌ-4? I have tried using a Tascam compatible (at least I think it is) breakout cable which goes from the DSUB25 connector on the ADÌ-4 to 8 male XLR. None of these seem to feed an AES signal to my monitors.
Is what I’m trying to do here at all possible? Can the ADÌ-4 actually convert 8ch ADAT to 8ch AES? If so, what kind of connections, cables, breakout boxes do I need?
Any hints and advice most appreciated!
