Topic: Output 1/2 + PH 3/4 Not Passing Signal In MutliChannel Mode
Hi RME team,
I'm a huge fan of your gear, and have been loving my ADI 2 Pro FS ever since I upgraded from my Babyface last year.
It has worked flawlessly for me, and I have been working toward upgrading my mixing chain, wanting to get some outboard flavor to use as inserts / loops, etc.
I understand fully that this unit is not meant for doing analog gear inserts on the master bus, but I simply want to test an Audio-scape Buss Compressor I bought during a drunk impulse buy a few weeks ago to see how it would sound on my mixes.
I plan to add more channels to my chain by adding another set of converters via digital, but I had read it would be possible still to pass signal out of the ADI into a downstream device and back into the ADI where I could monitor - or even if not - then listen back to the results after routing back to original state.
When I tried the method laid out in research on this forum "Change Device to Multichannel Mode by unplugging USB ... and set up the bus in your DAW". So I went ahead and turned on Multi Channel mode, and then plugged by USB back in and not only was I not able to pass the signal to my bus compressor...
But I no longer was able to hear any audio coming through either my monitors (analog out 1/2), or my headphones out 3/4. I even tried headphones out 1/2, and let me know I cannot use it as it's connected to 1/2.
Any idea what is going on here? Is this a expected result, a faulty unit, or do I need to adjust the settings somewhere?
Also, just to confirm, when I switched the mode back to Stereo Mode, I was then able to hear sound out of 1/2 and 3/4 as usual.
Thank you for your help!!
