Topic: HDSPe RayDAT/HDSPe AIO Pro/Babyface V1 connectivity question
Hi all, back again…
I have a question about expanding my setup in lieu of creating a new garage studio when I move house.
I purchased a new PC and have a RayDAT PCI card already installed.
I’m running at 96khz an have 2 no. Focusrite OctoPre Dynamic ADAT Preamps.
I’d like to further expand my in/outs and am looking at getting the HDSPe AIO Pro which I will sync internally with the x400 port of the RayDAT (with the AIO being the master).
In this way I can get another 2 audio ins and 2 audio outs and another set of MIDI ports, I understand that I will need to run 2 instances of TotalMix.
I assume I have this right and that the HDSPe cards will coexist happily?
My question relates to further expanding ADAT from the HDSPe AIO Pro, you see I have a V1 Babyface and given that I’m at 96khz I would stand to get 4 extra channels by using it slaved to the AIO.
Is it possible to use the Babyface purely via ADAT as a slave purely to give 2 extra audio ins and outs simultaneously?
If so are there any potential drawbacks?
My Babyface is currently a paperweight and I don’t want to buy another 8 channel ADAT Preamp only to use 4 of the channels at 96khz.
Any assistance welcomed and if I’m overlooking anything please let me know!
