Topic: 12Mic madi optical extending with couplers
I'm going to buy the 12Mic soon, now that I feel confident that both global OSC support for TMFX, and aux-device support for 12Mic are on the way.
I just have a couple of questions I couldn't easily find answers to.
1. Is it possible to extend madi optical cables using more than two cables in a chain with female to female couplers, or will using couplers limit the maximum distance radically?
I've got a short SC-SC patch cable from UFX+ to my rack patchbay panel, and I already own long SC-SC madi cables.
SFP module comes with a coupler and an SC-LC cable, so I would end up with
UFX+ -> short SC-SC cable -> coupler -> long (max50m) SC-SC cable -> coupler -> short SC-LC cable -> 12Mic
Will this work, or should I buy long SC-LC cables instead?
2. Is it possible to switch one adat output of the 12Mic to send out S/PDIF optical instead of adat? I have one scenario in which this would be useful. UFX+ and Babyface Pro can do this, but there was no mention of this in 12Mic's manual, so perhaps not?
Is this a hardware or firmware limitation, and if it's the latter, could it perhaps be easily added?
Thanks for your help!
