Digial Jitter????? Need Help Fast

Discussion in 'Recording' started by eightsonstudio, Nov 12, 2005.

  1. ok, so i have a focusrite 428 preamp and i sending my other pre amps through it and going adat into my digi 002. I am getting pops through my adat channels but wheni hooked up my pre's tothe anolgue ins on the digi 002 no clicks. would this be considered digital jittes or am i ^#$%ed?
     
  2. i guess i ma just gonna return the 428 and get a digimax being that the preamps on the 428 arent that hot anyway (after getting a daking and vnitech)

    this guy najat from my area New jersey makes some really high quality products.

    Vari Mu compressor amongst a great preamp. It has been used on Brittany Spears records and are used in EVH's rig. check it out, not very well known but after the ne OP comes out his prics will go up

    this is an easy fix i think. IN protools, go to the Set Ups menu, Select Hardware Set-Up, make sure Clock Source is ADAT, Digital Input, the first button should be selected.

    BTW when you use the adat lightpipe, 48khz is the highest sample rate allowed.
     
  4. thank you for the repliy, i have done all of that and that is why iam so perp;exed. i have even rebooted and tried a diferent sequence of turing my gear on, nothing seems to work. I am recording at 44..1 24 bit
     
  5. it sounld also be noted that i have been using this setup for the past month wiht no problems, it jsut start ot happen tonight

    Dont get the DIGIMAX by presonus. If you get anything else get a Mackie Onyx 800r.

    I had the digimax. It's operating noise makes it unusable of anything remotely soft. Once the pre is past 12 you can hear the hiss from the digimax.

    The Mackie Onyx 800r is sooo much better
     
  7. thansk for info, i have a central station that went bad on me and i also have a higher end stuiod by me that has the new ADL 600 and the left channel didnt work, seems like pre sonus is sucking. iam mostly going to use this just for the extra 8 inputs into my 002 rack

    well , if you are looking for an alternative to the 428 and like I said the presonus Digimax blows, seriously check out the mackie onyx 800r.
     
  9. i was just looking at it, i am a mackie dealer at work so i can def get it that way. i just feel bad putting a couple onyx preamps to waste, i would not be using 3 but i am sure that the digimax does blow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ohhh so you want to go from your pre into an A/D , light pipe out to the 002.

    I don't have much experience with comparing A/D converters. All I know is that Apogee is a leading brand.
