    Hi all !

    For some reason I can dump 24 tracks no problem ,Im using Nuendo V2
    to record and play , when I play all tracks Im getting this wave (out of synch) effect .... I have 2 separate hard drive one for the OS one for the Data, Plenty of space.... I have 3 motu 2408 mrkII going to a motu pci-324 card wich is set to be the word clock.... Why is this happening durring playback????

    Dang !

    It is happening because your AMD is too fast for sync'd multitrack audio playback.

    What is this 24 track dump you speak of? And who knows what this wave effect really sounds like?

    first of all let me say that Computers can NEVER be fast enough for me..he he he

    Im dumping 24 track from 3 adats via lightpipe(optical)...and track play in synch but as mild distortion ,clicks ,and some of them cut in/out ....?

    Why would problem occure when your recording instead of when your playing the tracks ???

    Well, I'm still not sure what your situation is; is it happening at record or playback? But at any rate, is there some feature where you can slave the MOTU to the ADAT's or can it auto-sync or something? I'm not sure how your MOTU words it, but I don't think you want the 2408 to be the master word clock.

    Alright !

    I get it now ! Me and Neson from "Sound on Sound" figured it out last night ..well actually he did, the problem was I only had 2 output setup in nuendo ,and the motu was summering down all track to 2 outputs, there was also an issue with the BRC controller for the 3 adats we have...All I need now is a few more lighpipe cables and a 2 more 8 channel 1/4 snake and im back in buisniss without having to touch the patch bay ever gain !

    I love it !
