Topic: Fireface UC & ADI-8 DD
I acquired a Fireface UC. No problems so far. However, my problems start with my newly acquired ADI-8 DD. Please be kind with me: I am a total noob if it comes to digital recording and its infrastructure. It's that bad that even the handbooks are of no use to me. Sorry, I am from the past. ;-)
My attempt to connect both units totally failed.
1) I connected the ADAT out (main) of the ADI-8 to the ADAT in of the UC and the ADAT in (main) to the ADAT in.
2) Fireface UC settings are according to the handbook. However, there is one setting that does not exist in the handbook:
"WDM devices: 9"
3) XLR male to TRS balanced connectors (four of them) from the inputs (ADI) to a patch bay. XLR female to TRS balanced connectors (four) from the outputs (ADI) to a patch bay.
4) The switches on the ADI-8 are set as follows (from left to right):
SRC: (not active)
Did not use the outs. However, the switches are set as folllows.
All 8 inputs of the UC working just fine. Yet, I cannot bring any signal in (?) or out (?) the ADI-8.
Total Mix shows the following inputs:
Mic1; Mic2, AN 3 - AN 8 [= Fireface UC]; SPDIF; AS 1; AS2; ADAT 3 - ADAT 8 [= ADI-8 DD?].
Any hint what am I doing wrong is highly appreciated!
