yamaha ls9 + 4 x digimax fs... wordclock needed?
i'm looking over the equipment list soon to be installed in a local concert hall i'm associated with... it struck me as strange that the contractor had spec'd out 4 http://www.presonus.com/produ… talking to a yamaha ls9 digital mixer over ADAT... do i need to be worried about the lack of a master clock?
If you connect ADAT both ways and set the mixer as master, you won't need a separate clock generator.
ADAT syncing will work, but this is a case for distributed wordclock. Take the wordclock out of the LS9 and daisy-chain it using 75 Ohm cable and T-pieces to each of the DigiMax FS units. Have the 75 Ohm termination switch pushed in on the last FS unit in the daisy-chain and out on the others. Easy.
