word clock

Master Wordclock from the RME UFX vs Mytek AD96 ?

Alright gang,

During break time, I've rewired my studio desk entirely and I'm just wondering about which should be the master wordclock.
I've been said that the Mytek Clock is very good but it kinda date now.
In the past, when my FF800 was my main interface, I made the Mytek the master clock and it was running fine
But with the new UFX, I thought having my main audio interface be the master is a better idea..
Now I'm asking you, am I right or the mitek still surpass the UFX...

My actual wordclock chain :

RME UFX Clock Source Settings

I have a question about clock source settings in the UFX.

At the moment i have setup like this:

UFX ADAT out -> ADI8 ADAT in
ADI8 ADAT out->UFX ADAT in

Also i have a word clock cable going from the UFX wordclock out -> ADI8 wordclock in

So, on the computer in the Fireface UFX settings in the clock mode section, what do i choose in the clock source drop down menu?

What does clock jitter sound like?

Why I started this thread!


Recently there have been several threads where the "sound" of clock jitter has been mentioned. These discussions seem to get "lost" in the diversity of the forum and points are often repeated. Hence I thought it would be worthwhile starting this thread to collate information in to a single “reference” source and hopefully debunk a some of the common misconceptions about clock jitter. Hopefully others will contribute.

Mytek and Focusrite World Clock. Sync via spdif vs BNC cable ?

So I just topped my credit card again, to buy a Mytek ADC 96
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 spdif to saffire and via bnc to octopre) ?

Has anyone heard of ClockAudio?

Clock Audio | Manufacturer of Quality Microphones | Boundary Microphones http://www.clockaud…

My local PA store loaned me a pair of their (only) SDC microphones, the C600. The company has a very interesting product line, admittedly not true Pro Audio. I was told something to the degree that this company used to make mics for AKG before they were purchased by Harmon...most notably the 451. I've searched for details on this factoid and have come up empty.

Transmitting Midi Clock data in reason essentials to my Alesis SR16 drum machine

I want to transmit midi clock data to my SR16 drum machine so that when i hit record on the transport control and get a 2 bar count in my drum machine
kicks in on time after the 2 bar count so i can record it.

I can do this in Pro Tools easy, but am really struggling for some reason in reason essentials.

Please help!

correcting audio sampled with the wrong clock.

I originally posted this in a different forum. Sorry for the double post...

I have audio that was sampled at 44.1 but the ext clock was set to 48k. Obviously now I need a way to change the file definitions to 48k so I can mix it at speed. Normally I would use 2 DAWs, set one to each sample rate, clock them together and digitally transfer. However I dont have two systems any more. Just my one Pro Tools rig. Is there any way to get at the definitions and simply change them? Any utility out there to change the sample rate with out actually converting the files.

I am mixing in the box so cant simply reclock or bounce.
