I have an old MOTU 8pre Firewire I got on the cheap that was working great. Been using it as an ADAT converter to add 8 channels to my 18i20. Today I wanted to try reducing latency by increasing the sample rate to 48khz. While fiddling with it I power cycled it and now after the "sparkle" animation it just displays the word "UP" on the LED display and outputs noise over optical and doesn't respond to pushing or turning the data knob.
What could "UP" mean? Upgrade? Underpowered? Belly up?
Why no audio being played through MOTU 8pre USB even though the meters on Logic and iTunes are blazing.
After getting the CueMix FX to function as a stand alone mic and guitar pre without running Logic suddenly no audio is audible through MOTU 8pre USB even though the meters on Logic and iTunes are blazing.
I read on the MOTU site that I can chain 2 8pre's together to get 16 channels of recording by using the optical connections. Has anyone done something similar to this and can offer some insight as to how easy/difficult it is? I am not finding anything very descriptive on "how" to do it, and would like to order the right cables/etc the first time around.
thanks in advance for any help!
I have 2 x MOTU 896mk3 & 1 x 8Pre
I am running Active Mackie HR824 Monitor and control with a Mackie Big Knob
We have a G5 PPC Tower running 10.4.11, & Logic Studio 8.
We have never been able to get this working properly consistently, I am planning to rebuild the studio over the summer and want to get it all working.
This fall it began to disrupt my whole computer. I run XP Professional on an Intel board, Intel Quad Core processor, 8 gigs of ram. Freeze-ups of any type of program that uses audio. My DAW is Cubase SX3.
I resolved some of those problems by getting the updated drivers, etc. But now...I'm only getting 2 functional channels out of the 8pre...with channel 2 working when it feels like it. Some crack, snaps, and pops when it feels like it.
