Adding Mini-Me?

    I would like to know how I should work an Apogee Mini-Me into my current set up. I'm currently running an 896 via fire wire into a dual gig G4. I'm running DP3.11, which I'm happy with. Right now my set up is that simple. I'm not doing anything with midi or any third party plugs-ins. I would like to run my main output off my Mini-Me instead of the 896, but I still want to be able to use the 896 to do drum tracks. Could I run from the Mini-Me AES/EBU out to the 896 AES/EBU in? Would I run into word clock problems? Should (or could) I just run the Mini-Me simply as an additional input?

    I know you guys will be a great help.

    The only way to use the Mini Me with the 896 is to run it into the AES/EBU inputs, and that should work fine. You won't have any problems as long as you tell the 896 that it should slave its clock to the Mini Me. The preamps and converters in the Mini Me are better than those in the 896, and you may even notice that your 896's inputs sound better as well when clocked to the Mini Me.
