    Hello,

    I've recorded 16 analog tracks with my 2 Travelers set up.
    Everything went fine.
    I plan to upgrade my system to 24 tracks.
    So, I plan to buy a Berhinger ADA8000.

    Here is how I plan to link them all :

    Traveler #2 : master for WordClock
    Traveler #1 : slave for WordClock

    Is this set up correct?
    Should I link Traveler #1 and ADA8000 with BNC for WordClock or ADAT would be enough to sync all the units together?

    Please, let me know.

    Thanks.

    -Barnee.

    try the extra wordclock loop to the ADA

    BUT generally

    I prefer to let the Ai3 and the ADA8000 just slave via the send/return of the ADAT Lightpipe.
    I feel that the Wavefront chips slave better that way.

    others may disagree

    potentially in more complex systems and with a higher class gear containing higher quality chips and PCB designs
    the BNC wordclock could be better

    Thanks for your post Kev.

    Others have opinions on this set up?

    I have to try to sync the ADA to the TRaveler via WC 'cause I had some 'pops' (2-4 per hour max.).
    Maybe it is the sync trouble.

    I just have received my ADA. I will have to full test it soon.
