    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.

    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.
