Topic: DAT Transfers
I'm trying to archive some old DATs.
I'm doing this via AES and set my UFX interface to check for this, which it does and chooses sample rate correctly to match the DAT.
I assumed that my DAW (Logic) would pick this up but it doesn't. It seems that I have to set the SR manually in Logic depending on the particular tape that I'm transferring. Is that expected, or am I missing a setting somewhere where it will just follow the interface? I would have thought that as the interface is clocking from the DAT, Logic would know this. Or, is Logic doing some SR conversion if the rate is set differently to the DAT/UFX?
The DATS are 16bit. I'm assuming that zeroes will be appended to create a 24-bit file. Is that correct?
