Okay, so I was recording a soprano soloist on a recital yesterday with the Aurora 8 piped to both my computer (via AES) and the HD24 (non-XR) via lightpipe. The computer crashed in the recital, so I was stuck using the backup. The sample rate was 96kHz. Total track count was 6. When I tried to copy these individual files from the Fireport onto the computer, it copied all 6 files that showed up, but the resulting files were as such: Channel 1 (left piano) occupied both files 1 and 2 (identical files, both identified as 24/96 by the computer.) Channel 2 (right piano) occupied files 3 and 4 (again, identical files, both identified by the system as 24/96). Channel 3 (Flank left) occupied files 5 and 6 (again, identical files.......) Channels 4-6 did not copy to the computer. I spoke with alesis tech support for about an hour today and they were baffled (all the way up to the point where the phone *magically* disconnected). Strangely enough, I can digitally copy all of the files back into the computer by piping them BACK through the Aurora 8 and into the computer, but obviously, this is not exactly time conscious. Does any one know what the h*ll happened and what I need to do? My fireport has the latest firmware as does my HD24. Cheers! J.
