2 units used here - Apogee ensemble and Behringer pro 8 digi. They are connected adat digi, in out , out in. the WC's are connected and the pro 8 is set to adat in on slave. Here is where the first inconsistency appears from alot of the online vids and tutorials I've watched - the pro 8 doesn't have a fire wire input, the only firewire conction in my entire system is made between the ensemble and the mac pro(note)lol.
So to what I've picked up , all the neccesery connections between the 2 units have been made, am I correct? It is obvious that a signal of some sort is passing between the 2 units, when I put a signal into a channel on the pro 8 a light flashes on that unit, aswell as the D2 light on the front of the apogee flashing.
This is when I go to the mixer screen in the ensemble tool screen, I've seen how this screen SHOULD look loads of times, with tracks 1-8 set to addat direct, track 9 stereo, then 10-18 analogue direct. Here is where my 2'nd and most confusing inconsistency appears- my output screen only has 8 tracks in total? I have reset and refreshed connections routing and mixer, and still nothing?
I've also looked on Pro Tools hardware setup and the only pice of hardware that it can see is the ensemble, when I try and launch setup app it mearly takes me back to my apogee mixer, still containing only 8 adat tracks and nothing spare?
This is a problem I've been trying to sort out for a long time now, and I cant find anything online that points me in an even remotely useful direction?? If you've actually read all this, I'd like to thank you immensely. If you even have 1 answer or useful tip for me then........ you're a true star!
All my best BSC Dave
