Quick setup before my question. Several external synths & midi controllers, 2 external fx proc's, 8x8 midiman, MOTU 828 MKII... My analog IO on my MOTU 828MKII is full, so sometimes I want to route audio out of my DAW into my (for example) fireworx via spdif and back in again. When I use my spdif channel I have to change the clock in my DAW from Internal to spdif. Why? Nextly (new word :wink: ) I invariably forget to swith my DAW clock back to internal before I exit my host and later on when I want to listen to someones posted track here my audio is confused/disabled so I have to boot up the DAW again and reset. This sucks. Is there a way around it? Both fx processors accept incoming clock as well as internal clocking, and my midiman has smpte clock available. What's going on here guys?
