I have the octopre as master to the 003 through light pipe. Its all set up right. I know it is! Just replaced the cable also. problem im having is the octopre is very moody as far as the sync. Its locking but then in the middle of my session today the sync went bad. Gave me a big blast of hell out of the monitors and wouldnt sync immediately after that. Always more crap in the channel. I went back in there just now and it did the same thing but then synced up after a couple tries. I dont get it. HERE IS THE BIG QUESTION! Can I take the word clock out of protools 003 and use it as the master to the octopre by puching the "external clock" button on the octopre since it has a Word Clock BNC Jack right there? I dont see why this wont work? Also It cant be any more trouble than ive already gone through right? Anybody ever done this ?
