    Not sure this is the right forum, please move me if it's not.

    I need to connect the DBX376 tube strip that I just recently purchased to my DIGI002 (rack). I'd like to do that via S/PDIF leaving the analog output to a monitor mixer.

    The problem is that the host recording app (Cubase SX) doesn't display a External sync option in the combo box for synchronization selection in the ASIO dialog.

    The DBX has a wordclock in and out but 002 has neither.

    Am I doing something wrong, or is it just buggy DIGI ASIO drivers? What about the S/PDIF signal from the DBX - maybe it doesn't contain a sync bit? Yes I have RTFM.

    Please help, anyone else with similar problem.

    You could use a y cord to split the Analog to both the DIGI002 (rack) and the monitor mixer.

    It may be your only option if Cubase SX and the ASIO driver doesn't give you an SPDF sync option.

    boy Digidezign may have become the international standard and it sounds better too...but believe me friend it always gives you tough time linking different application...like i m having this problem..can't run different applications at the same time....not even RTAS instruments ...with pro tools...hey pal if you now how to link reasons adapted to pro tools...please tell me...when i open pro tools it researves the midi and asio drivers for itself and keeping pro tools open when i goto reason it gives midi and asio error.... thats why its been one year i bought digi002 but still not working on pro tools....CUBASE SX Rocks man....its the best software so far...

    I think there was no problem. In the Digidesign ASIO driver you select the clock source to be S/PDIF. However this does not affect the Cubase sample clock source dialog which still says "Internal". Stupid.

    The vocals came without any clicks and pops, so I guess the whole thing was working after all. I mean no synch should be easily heard right?
