I have a trusty old Apogee Mini-Me pre-amp/compressor with drivers that don't work with anything beyond Windows XP.
For a time, I got away with using it via SPDIF through my trusty old Egosys U2A - it's a cheap little USB Audio Interface which amazingly has both optical and SPDIF ins and outs and cost me less than $100 about a hundred years ago. (I know! Right?)
Basically, the U2A was doing nothing to add to the sound beyond passing through one digital source to another digital source.
1/4" TRS and TS
SPDIF (coax digital)
1. The balanced input jack on the audio card is rated at being 104 to around 107 dBA SNR.
2. We all know the SPDIF input is basically digital 1's and 0's.
3. Both inputs are 24-bit / 44khz or 48khz
So.. which one do you think might be better or worse?
Would they sound different.. and if so, then how?
My plan is to connect my Focusrite ISA two to the Mytek, then the mytek to my Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 via spdif.
I also have a Octopre which is connected to the saffire 56 via ADAT.
I read the Mytek has a good clock so I want it as the master clock.
The question is : should I buy 2 bnc cables (mytek master sync sent via bnc to saffire and via bnc to octopre)
or buy one cable (mytek master sync sent via S/PDIF to saffire and via bnc to octopre) ?
I have been browsing around and reading quite a bit but did not see anything specific to my topic so I thought I better post my question.
When I Insert the M300, there's no more audio playing on the track or it plays but completely DRY.
Somebody can help me out? Thanks
after buying an minprint trio the digital in and out is recocgnized but not the device.officially mindprint trio does'nt need any driver for the S/PDIF version.
I want to use the daw for logic as well as the better recording by mindprint.By the way the sound works and is really great!
My Prefered Route
I know when you record analog audio, the input monitor always sounds a little bit better than playback from the recording, because there is always some loss.
My problem, is that I'm recording SPDIF and I'm experiencing the same loss.
I am using Cubase SX3, using and M-AUDIO Fast Track Pro. I bought the Fast Track Pro in lieu of a more expensive unit because 99% of the time, I will be recording SPDIF, so I don't need anything fancier.
