i have an IMAC, Yamaha receiver and a Focusrite pro 40.
Goal here is to get sound from imac, to Focusrite then to reviever that has a 5.1 system hooked up to it.
firewire from imac to Focusrite right now.
then fiber optic audio cord from Focusrite to Yamaha receiver. i have no idea why its not working.
I chose the setting on mac so it goes thru the focusrite. i can see the sound bars moving when i open the Focusrite software. but there is something wrong from the Focusrite optical out to the Yamaha receiver optical in.
any ideas thanks..
The default optical output protocol from the Pro40 is ADAT. You need to switch it in software preferences to use S/PDIF.
I tried to do that lol
i must of failed to do it right though. ill try it right now!! thanks
just chose spdif? nothing??
were is software preferances?
Under the "Settings" menu in the Saffire PRO 40 Control software there is an option "Use optical ADATs as S/PDIF". Depending on how your Yamaha receiver is set up, you may need also to select AC3 streaming via S/PDIF. See Pages 23-24 in the Pro 40 User Guide.
I have tried all three settings man its killin me
heard just base for one sec..
GOT IT THANKS!!
