Howdy folks, Santa gave me a MidiMan format converter. I immediately made a cable (18', AES/EBU) to connect my mastering room to my studio. I figured that I could now leave my DAT recorder (Fostex D5) in the studio to record the finished products of my work. Ok, here's the problem: the DAT is supposed to read the incoming sample rate from the source. The source is a Mac 8100/80 playing SDII files @ 16/44.1, but the DAT tries to record @ 48 KHz with predictable results. Why do you suppose the DAT is not reading the correct sample rate? It reads correctly from a CD player with a commercial disc source, but will not devine the correct sampling rate from the computer. Any ideas will be tested and appreciated.
