Topic: Digiface USB + 2x Ferrofish Pulse 16 + Adi 2 Pro
I'm not very good with connecting stuff so would really appreciate you're help if it's possible.
My current main interface is a Fireface 802 which i have connected to a Adi 2 Pro fs r be and a Ferrofish Pulse 16 via adat for an extra 16 i/o.
My setup of outboard gear and synths have grown and I ordered a second Pulse 16 which would give me 32 extra i/o. This was without even checking if it was possible in my setup, which it isn't since the 802s limited by 16 io via adat?
My question here is this:
I have a Digiface USB, which is a 66 channel interface.
If I switch out my 802 with the Digiface, and have the Digiface as my main hub and interface, I would be able to connect everything and still use all the features the Adi 2 pro brings?
In my head this setup would be something like this:
Digiface running with usb from my computer.
4 adat cables from the Digiface connected to the 1st Ferrofish Pulse 16 giving me all 16 ins & outs (Pulse 16 has 8 adat ports) Then from the remaining 4 adat ports of the 1st Pulse 16 I would connect the 2nd Pulse 16, giving me another 16 ins & outs. So all in all 32 ins & 32 outs. I would also use 2 adat ports on the Digiface to connect my ADI-2 Pro and have that as clock and running my monitors from the AES out.
Is this possible? I'm a bit unsure if you can daisy chain the Pulse 16s the way I explained. If I have to connect them both directly to the Digiface I would only have 2 adat ports left on the Digiface, but what could work for me is to just connect it to the ins on the 2nd Pulse 16, so I would use that unit only for instruments that only use Ins, not outs.
Hope this all make sense and that someone can confirm this works the way my dumb brain think it does..
